“Great 3* Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Hotel is located in District 1, within walking distance to most of tourist sites and places to eat. Room was clean, modern and spacious with great views of the river.
Breakfast was a little disappointing. While they had a variety of options, they do not seem to re-fill the food (like most other hotels). We usually got down at 9am for breakfast and most of the food and juices would have finished by the time we got there.
Staff are very friendly, helpful and always smiling. Thoroughly recommended and we will definitely stay here again.
Free fast speed Wifi (with multi logins).
Tip: Laundry bag is not complementary.

Just returned to brisbane after 9 day stay at the Aquari. Great location for walking everywhere. Staff were very good and always smiling, rooms good and clean, we had the river view on the 11th floor. We have been trying to find a negative but we can't. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. No doubt there are better hotels in HCMC but none better value for money than the Aquari. Without any hesitation we would recomend the Aquari.

Room Tip: good view of the river from the river deluxe room on the 11th floor. Shower very good.

We had a lovely 3 nights here. Before we checked in we were offered an upgrade to a suite which was lovely after 2 weeks of travelling. Room was very quiet, comfortable bed and pitch black when lights were out. Wonderful view of the river and great location - we braved the the Saigon traffic and walked everywhere. Car met as at the airport and took us back. Fresh sheets, towels, water every day and lovely breakfast - lots of choice and many options freshly cooked. The best part though were the staff. We checked out before 12 but car to the airport was booked for 4. Bags were stored for us and after a lovely last day as we were making our way back to the hotel a surprise storm hit and we were drenched to the skin. Staff provided towels a place to wash and change and were very solictious of us - even providing water for each of us for the car on the way to the airport - great service and not all expensive for the attention to detail - recommend

Located in district one along the Japanese area, loved the location since it afforded us to walk to all the interesting shops and restaurants of the city. The breakfast however is not that great and the coffee is not strong enough for my taste. The rooms are quite spacious and clean, the bath tub was huge but sort of out of place. Overall, if your passing through the city this hotel is a great alternative to the more expensive ones.

Quite new hotel with modern amenities. Property is well located and some rooms such as ours had views of the river. Close to good restaurant areas and downtown activities. Area surrounding hotel is destined for rebuilding which will eventually make this a much better location.
The restaurant was a disappointment, with it's offerings very limited. We used the facility having arrived in city quite tired on first night, and were possibly the only customers they had for the evening.
All facilities were very clean throughout, and the cost represented good value in an area that is becoming more expensive.

The only facilities I have experienced in this hotel are the Reception service, Room and the Dining room and was very pleased with all.
The room was clean and cozy on one of the upper floors. Bathroom has a big bath tub and plenty amenities. It felt clean and sanitized.
Hotel is very close to the main hot spots in District 1 - walking distance.
Breakfast had a wide variety and the food was good.
Reception staff helpful, friendly and professional.
Hotel appears to be new.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a street view. I got a room with no view but the nearby building window. That w...

Last August we had 70 rooms at the Aquari Hotel In Thi Sach Street in Saigon for 2 x 2 nights. The guests had a great stay in this very new, upmarket hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the staff and amenities that they had to offer. Many have come back or are coming in through our agent in Hanoi, Mr Thai VU at Vietland Holiday. Thanks again to the hotel and management such a great stay.

Room Tip: This hotel is close to the centre of Saigon (2 blocks) and the many boutique shops, as well as being...
