The location is away from the centre a bit (the Dong Koi and Le Loi avenues) and in the middle of a very busy and noisy traffic junction. Despite being near the Ben Thanh Market and the famous Bill Clinton Pho shop, the location is not as pleasant. However, the rooms are of much better value, and the staff at reception and restaurants were excellent and all spoke very good English. I was in a non-smoking room on the 6th floor, and did not hear any noise from the traffic below. There was no trace of ciagarettes, and the whole floor was pleasantly free from cigarette smoke. Minor points: drinks were expensive - more so than the food, Taxis were not always easy to get.
Overall - still very good value for money, but a bit off the more pleasant part of town !
