Prior to arriving at this hotel we had already stayed at 9 hotels throughout China and Cambodia. We arrived at Ho Chi Min (Saigon) city on Christmas Eve 2011 and were surprised see upon arrival at this hotel a choir of Vietnamese children singing Christmas carols. Now that is something we didn't expect. We deliberately chose Asia to avoid the whole fuss of Christmas. Anyway, our hotel room was OK but not 5 Star standard. The location was very good and central to everything. People everywhere. The breakfast was pleasant. We were 3 weeks into a 5 week holiday so I was beginning to get tired of hotels, suitcases and below expectation experiences. On Boxing Day I had my expensive Digital SLR camera swiped from my grasp while alighting a bus outside a Saigon restaurant at lunchtime so that was not a happy memory of Saigon. Warning: watch out for motorcyclists jumping footpaths to swipe your possessions. I think it was a set up.
