“So well located.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

We chose this hotel because it was an affordable hotel in District 1 with a swimming pool. We were not disappointed. The first stay we had a room with balcony overlooking the street, the rooms were a good size. The second stay we had a triple room with no view, but large and quiet. Breakfast was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was perfect for cooling off from being out in the heat. Everything is within walking distance to the hotel.

We could not rate our stay enough. The hotel did not charge us for our first night reserved as our plane connections were delayed. The staff (in particular Ms Oanh) were so accommodating and our room spacious. Although the pool was small, it was large enough for the kids to have fun. Breakfast buffet was also a hit. Very central location worked well. Thanks for a great stay.

Beware of scam!!. I walked in for a 1 night stay. Paid $75 up front and got the key. Came down 2 hr latter and asked for my passport back. They wanted a deposit for 1 night's worth and gave me a receipt for the deposit amount- which make sense. When I check out, they said I didn't pay the first time and kept my deposit. I asked them to check the camera, but they only show me a distant behind view. I think they intentionally hide the front counter recording. WHAT A SHAME!!!!

The location of the hotel is right in the pricey area, with only US$40 a night. It's a walking distance to some of the Ho Chi Minh City Landmark. Taxi to Airport only cost VND135000, while motocycle taxi to Ben Tanh around VND20000. The staff are friendly & excellent, and the best thing was that they gave me early check-in (10AM) with late check-out (2PM). The breakfast was good too, buffet with plenty of variety.

Room Tip: Well, higher floor probably quieter room

Booked this hotel due to its location in District 1 city centre as well as the reviews from other TA members. We were not disappointed. This was to be a short stay of a few nights before heading up to Hoi An. We booked their Huong Sen deluxe room, and @ 50 sqm room gave plenty of space for us to not feel like we were boxed in. The room was georgeous, with a dining setting and a comfortable sofa as well as a king sized bed with fresh and clean quality linen. As others have said, the shower over the bath is a bit dicey to get in and out of due to its height off the ground, but with a bit of practice, it did not present an overall issue. The new inclusion of a non slip bath mat in there assisted safety whilst showering, and the shower curtain certainly stopped the rest of the room from getting flooded. The hotel itself is beautiful and had much of the French colonial architecture still in place, which gave it much charm and it was very well refurbished and modernised tastefully from the inside, whilst still retaining its original character. Our room had wrap around balconies on the 4th floor and it overlooked the streets (Dong Khoi St & Le Loi Blvd). It was great to sit up there at any time and people watch while sipping on a cold beer. We thought the traffic and general noise would be an issue in such a busy area, but the double glazing on the windows as well as the tiniting gave a great sleep. Nothing was going to cut down the horn noise, because that was the part that became very irritating. Vietnamese drivers wear out the horns on their bikes and cars before any other part of the vehicle (especially blinkers). It was only a few hundred metres to the Saigon river/Opera house/Central post office, and Notre Dame cathedral/ and about 15 mins to Ben Thanh markets - so very central. We walked the couple of klms to the war remnants museum, so it wasn't a real issue, especially if you have just devoured their breakfast offerings. Breakfast was served on the 6th floor, and the room was very elegantly set out with plush seating, a very serene and welcoming atmosphere as well as some of the best variety of dishes (both Asian and western) that you could hope to have. In all our travels, this was probably the nicest breakfast buffet that we had encountererd.

Room Tip: If your budget allows get the Huong Sen deluxe rooms, excellent value.

This is a really neat small hotel. Although it is smack in the middle of pricey & highrise area, Dong Khoi, of Saigon, Huong Sen has the old charms, small well managed hotel. It is surprisingly quiet. You will be surprised, pleasantly surprised.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night 2 weeks ago during my business trip. I was so surprise, this hotel has star rating as 3 stars but they're passed over my expectation. Lobby is big, beautiful, bright and clean. I had a great helps from a bell staff as well as receptionist. The room's so nice, even bathroom. My sleep quality was very satisfied. My room also had a small cute balcony. Their breakfast is speechless with variety of foods. The staffs in restaurant are so good trained with smiles and take care the guests. I'm totally happy there and I will choose this hotel again.
