Booked a Double Deluxe and Family room for a night in April 2013. As this was a stopover on transit, we spent fewer than 12 hours at the hotel. Nevertheless, we thought it was money well-spent given the promotional prices for the newly refurbished rooms in a central location. The all-you-can-eat breakfast was a bonus.
Its central location along Pham Ngu Lao would make this a great base for travellers to most of the tourist attractions around HCMC (Ben Thanh market is just a 5 minute walk away and so is the bus terminal where buses to/from the airport based). More importantly, it's also conveniently situated just across the street from a Vinasun taxi stand with many cabs lining the streets.
While service was limited at best (I am not sure if the day receptionists would be more competent than the night ones who essentially doubled up as security) and we could not understand why they insisted on retaining our passport despite payment having been made in full prior to arrival on Agoda, the room was certainly spacious and well-furnished with personal amenities and toiletries. Surprisingly, the family suite came with a rather comfortably-sized bathtub to boot (which is unusually rare for a hotel of this stature in HCMC).
The breakfast offers a delectable selection of standard fare (fruit juices, milk, cold cuts, etc) which are served daily along with more exquisite selections that vary on a daily basis (the daily variation is repeated on a weekly basis) like sandwiches and Pho.
All in all, it certainly offers reasonable value for money both in terms of the quality of the accommodation and breakfast - its central location certainly helps to further enhance the appeal of the hotel.
