“Old World Charm”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is a beautiful hotel with a lot of history which is in excellent condition. There is a historic wing and newer section called "opera wing". We stayed in the historic wing. The room was very comfortable, the hotel is beautifully decorated. The beds are extremely comfortable. The food was wonderful, as was the service. Drinks at the inside bar and the pool bar were well made and generous. The pool is large with plenty of seating and is right off the patio from the pool bar/food area. Breakfast featured many wonderful Asian and American type choices. English is well spoken. There are several restaurant options to choose from that are connected to the hotel. Walking down certain corridors, you will see designer shops (Chanel, Dior, etc.), as well as well-made craft and souvenir shops. The location is perfect for walking to many different scenic areas and sites.

Room Tip: Rooms facing into the pool area/courtyard are a little quieter.

Stayed here a few years ago it is a comfortable hotel in a good location. We used the Sinh Cafe buses. There are Sinh cafes everwhere, we booked a tour to the Chu Chi tunnels and to the Mekong (these buses were extremely cheap comfortable and reliable). We also used the Sinh buses to go to Halong Bay and travelled from Hue to Hoi An.

We enjoyed a very pleasant check-in process. Our names were on a board welcoming us to the hotel - we felt very special. The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite spacious and we had a view of a busy cross section of traffic. Ho Chi Minh City is well known for its traffic - organised chaos. From the hotel, we could walk to the backpackers area which was brilliant for really cheap meals and drinks. From there we could also organise tours and use money exchanges. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Not to forget what colonial style means! Being back in time and feel what luxury life was meaning at that time. Everything is of good level and room of high comfort. Service, as it is often in Asia is perfect and everybody pay attention to your comfort. We tried traditional massage in our room. As soon as finished we felt in a deep sleep till morning the day after. This is the best way to travel in a friendly manner.

I stayed in the 'new wing'. Most beautiful room ever! Gym was busy and a bit too small, pool was crowded but lovely.
