Stayed here last week of July 2013 in a suite. This hotel has a fantasic location, come out of the door turn left and your on one of the best streets in HCMC.
The room was large and clean although it did have a slight musty smell but all in all it was lovely. House keeping was very good. Bed very comfy, nice bathroom.
Nice little touches like a hand written welcome card.
The food and drinks are expensive by HCMC standards but it is a 5 star hotel so to be expected. In general service was good and attentive. We tried the casino one night and was good, we also ate in the casino but was not particulary impressed with the food.
The pool is small and does not get much sun shine but it's nice and clean.
There was some building work during our stay and we were woken by the niose very early every morning, however upon complaining to the Manager he addressed the complaint with complete satisfaction.
It's by a very busy road / junction and it does take some nerve to crosss the road but you do get used to it.
We tried several bars close to the hotel along Dong Khoi Street and by pure chance found a bar called Ice Blue on the opposite side of the road a 5 min walk away. A great friendly bar with darts good friendly staff and a mixture of nationalities as customers. Mr Acceptable (the owner) is so funny and friendly. From the outside its just a small door way but dont let that put you off and it does not open till 4pm every day but stays open till quire late.
In summary, yes the hotel is a little expensive but if you want good old fashioned colonial style luxury and a grand land mark in a ideal location this is the place!
