Meh. Not much to say really other than the title. The more expensive rooms are over-priced for what they were. After a trip around the Mekong Delta we returned to HCMC and found a lovely, smaller hotel for $26 a night which was much much newer and nicer...Needs updating. Staff are helpful but the tourist trips here are around 30% more expensive than anywhere else lol!
The breakfast is reasonable however the lift takes at least 5-7 minutes to arrive. No joke!

Room Tip: Its on a very loud main road to head up high! The lift however hardly works and is extremely slow, s...

I could not agree with BeLeaver more. Inexperienced travelers should not stay here as the staff is not there to make your Vietnam experience one of ease. All basic needs met, bathroom a little dated. Location was great and price was right, housekeeping did a great job as well.

This hotel was alright for the price, but I think a traveler might be better off stayig in a smaller budget hotel or guesthouse with a little more authentic Vietnamese hospitality. The staff was nice enough, and fairly helpful, but the place just seemed a little cold, like bigger hotels tend to be. I may have just been spoiled, as this was my last hotel in Vietnam, and before I had stayed at a lot of smaller places with staff that just went out of their way for their guests and were genuinely friendly and attentive. So please don't get me wrong. The staff was friendly, but they just weren't all that outgoing. They seemed to just do as much as they needed to do, in order to keep their jobs. That was the vibe that I got from them.

Besides that though, the hotel was pretty good. The lobby was very nice. It was kept cool by AC and they had a wine bar, beautiful decor and furniture, and computers for guests to use free of charge. I stayed in a Standard double room. It was a bit small, but enough room for one person or a couple without being too cramped. The room was clean, but seemed a bit dated. The bathroom was the same. Clean, but seemed fairly old and pretty well used. All in all though, it was comfortable enough with a nice bed, AC, a fridge and a safe, and a flat screen TV with plenty of channels to choose from.

The location was pretty good. It's down a street that doesn't get too much traffic, so fairly easy to cross the street and get to the nearby cafes, bars, salons, spas, and mini mart. It is walking distance to all of the major sites, including a quick stroll to the Reunification Palace, the War Relics Museum, and the Ben Tanh Market.

I think I would have prefered to stay in a smaller, friendlier guesthouse type of place in the same price range, but I can't complain too much about this hotel. I stayed for 4 nights and had a comfortable stay with no problems and was well taken care of for the most part. I gave it an average rating, because it was nothing special. Just an average place to stay. I would recommend this place to people that want a comfortable place to rest in HCMC, and don't mind the lower hospitality level of a bigger hotel. Overall, this place is a good value, and you should have a comforable stay here.

Room Tip: I'd suggest paying a few extra dollars to get a delux room with a little extra space.

My husband and I stayed her for one night after a late flight in. Arrived at 1:30am and they were very nice. Check in was quick. The room was clean and new
Morning breakfast was good - buffet style with lots to choose from.
I would consider staying there again
