“Functional hotel in a great location”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

After spending some time in really nice boutique hotels in Vietnam, this hotel was a little bit of a let down. However, when you calibrate yourself to the price paid, its a great deal. The bathrooms are old fashioned - a shared room for the shower and toilet so everything gets really wet after a shower. We also had a leak in the shower from the bathroom upstairs.

On the bright side, the hotel is in a wonderful location - you can walk to most major attractions in the city. The breakfast at the hotel is bad - again, you get what you pay for. If I were to go back to Saigon, I'd probably look at spend a little bit more money and stay in a better hotel.

What a gem! The room was clean and there was even a desktop computer inside the room! Wifi and breakfast was included. Breakfast was delicious and they have a huge menu (20+ pages?) in your room from which you can order from and have it delivered to your room! The staff was very friendly and spoke very good English. The location was excellent for two reasons: First, it is within walking distance to many tourist sights (market, war museum, etc.). Second, if you like to go out at night, there are plenty of bars/clubs/restaurants next to the hotel! I would definitely stay here again!

We had a superior room with beds for 3 adults.
It was a nice room on first floor with computer and internet.
although there were no real window because it faced the downstairs breakfast room it was really nice.
We also had the hotel arrange pickup and dropoff at airport at an agreed price. this service was also fine.
The hotel has elevator although not much needed as we only had to ascend 1 floor.
The included breakfast was ok with different choices.

we paid 47 USD per night for the triple superior room including breakfast.

Room Tip: If you need a window then stay at second floor or higher up.

The hotel is located strategically near the bars, near Ben Tahn Market in District 1. Very good value for your money, it wasn't too expensive. Our room (at the top floor, facing the street) was clean and has a very cool airconditioning.

The free breakfast is served at the reception. They will set up tables and chairs early in the morning for hotel guests.

All the staff were very accommodating and helpful. They even helped my brother file a police report for his snatched DSLR Camera, since some Vietnamese have a hard time understanding english. The staff even made an effort to follow up and send the police report through email, as they promised, days after we left Ho Chi Minh.

I would stay here again :)

Found this hotel through TripAdvisor and had pretty high expectations from previous reviews but also came in knowing some of the downfalls. So i'll add my own pros and cons.

Pros
-Great rooms, very clean, nice bathroom
-Great location, in walking distance of most of the main attractions and markets.
-Breakfast included (although its small but enough to get you through the morning)
-Room service was awesome and cheap
-Street noise was minimal, probably a bit worse if you were lower
-Staff were nice and very accomodating (even brought us towels outside when we got caught in a downpour)
-I know people have complained about the size of the stairwell and elevators but it really isnt a problem at all (obviously unless theres a fire).

Cons
-Staff were a little unclear when organizing things such as our bus to Cambodia, we were out of the loop and were worrying if we were even going to catch the bus but it worked out in the end.
They just didnt communicate effectively with the bus company.
-We got them to do laundry and it was great because it came back folded and everything but the problem was that some of us (especially the girls we were with) lost articles of clothing, mostly undergarments. So they obviously didnt use a very trustworthy laundry service.
-The computers crashed a lot and ran slow sometimes but it seemed like that was a problem all over South East Asia.

Overall it was a fantastic place to stay at because of the location and the staff. The few problems we encountered didnt bother us much because we are fairly easy going. We would definitely stay here again if (hopefully when) we return to Vietnam.

Room Tip: Stay on a higher floor and spend the few extra dollars to get a superior room which has a view of th...

Sorry for the delay in the review, I had meant to write one but had not gotten around to it. Better late than never, I suppose. This hotel was topnotch in our book, and the service was nothing short of awesome. Email correspondence was prompt and efficient, they booked tours for us, they arranged transfers. The hotel itself was clean and the location very central. Don't expect five-star amenities, though. For it's price, however, this hotel absolutely delivers!
