The second time I came to Saigon as business traveler, so decided to go for the Novotel after reviewing the comments.
First of all, the hotel with all the facilities is great for all business traveler as well for tourist with higher budget. I booked through the hotel website a Deluxe Room for 3 nights. When I arrived at the hotel around 13:30 my room was not ready, so the FO Supervisor at the reception asked me to wait for around 45 minutes. I had no issue as there was the Bar 167 Faubourg where I could had drink and also check my e-mails (free wi-fi in hotel).
After almost one hour I returned to the reception, but the that one FO Supervisor was not there anymore so I asked another person. She checked, however the room was not ready yet due to an issue. But she quickly came with a solution and upgraded me to Executive Deluxe Room.
Finally, got the room and went upstairs. Although for an Executive Deluxe Room the space wasn't that spacious, but it was still OK. The room is really well appointed with a modern design which I like it. As a business traveler I could find all items which are important e.g. iron board (I did iron my shirt), free wi-fi and wire internet connection, two- and three pins power outlets.
The bathroom comes with a shower which has a Smart Glass, really great design idea!
At the 4th level is a swimming pool which is nice for relaxing and swimming a couple of lanes for work out, but the water is really cold.
Breakfast was at the 2nd level, offer a range of International and Asian food. However, for a 4 star hotel there should have more choices. Anyhow it was sufficient.
The hotel locates in District 3, but is only a walking distance of about 15 minutes to Le Loi Boulevard. Outside around the hotel have many restaurants and coffee shops, so it wasn't an issue to find some eateries and as well to get a taxi immediately.
