This place is cheap and nasty. They put us in a small, windowless room which smelled of mould and did not have decent hot water. The breakfast was frankly disgusting. I always try to find the positive but I am not sure this place has any worth mentioning. Its one of the worst places I have stayed out of hundreds... More

The hotel tried to rip me off by treating the total price for a two day booking as the price per day. This was coupled by converting from the booking price, in USD, to a price in Dong which made the change less obvious. At the same time they tried to retain my passport until I checked out. I know...

We were staying in HCMC in other hotel but we went to this place for the spa. The place was super clean and the staff very polite and professional. We got a 70' body massage for 300,000VND and it was awesome, a mix of Swedish, deep tissue and hot stone. Totally recommended.

Such a grand old Lady of a Hotel and such a horrible staff and management, they just could not care weather you are there or not. I have never experienced where the entire staff goes out of their way to avoid or talk to you. There is a desk by the elevator that has a sign with MANAGER on it.... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights with my husband. What can I say, the door boy was standing at the entrance and watching videos on his phone rather than helping clients. Once inside, the reception area was O.k. with reception finding our booking quickly. In the room, broken lamp shade, dust around fitting and fixtures. windows had broken... More

I stayed for 2 days for my business in HCM. The receptionists keep forgeting to return my clothes after i give them for washing. They were also quite rude and unfriendly. The price is also quite expensive compared to other hotels. Room is ok, not anything special.

Good location is the only good things of the hotel, just 5 minutes to Cathedral and the center. However, the hotel room and bathroom is too small, amenities & facilities are quite poor. Room located in the street so it's very noisy (the windows are obviously not thick enough). Breakfast is also poor but taste not bad. The attitude of... More

For the price, the location is amazing value. My room was quite good although 1 bin wasn't emptied when I got there! In fact the cleaning was pretty ordinary. Still, the location outweighed these however what was hard to swallow was the poor service and attention from staff. I'm realistic that this is a 3 star hotel, but I've had... More

My first mistake was not realizing that the 3 Au Lac properties, although the address seem to indicate that they are next to each other, are actually quite a distance apart. Now, the adventure starts. Took a taxi from the airport to Au Lac II, which was an adventure on its own. Driver did not speak a word of English... More

Good overall experience! Check-in was fast and the staff was friendly and always willing to help. Their English skills are quite basic so speak slowly and listen carefully. Our twin-bed room was a little crowded due to the extra bed but it was alright for a 2-night stay. Also it had two huge windows with a nice view of the... More
