Hotel is roughly 40mins from the airport. Hotel itself is grand, looking majestic from the outside. Staff are welcoming, check-in took less than 5mins. Looking around, most of the hotel patrons were Japanese and Koreans making this quite a popular business hotel.
We stayed at the 11th floor, room is very spacious with the view of the lake. Bed was comfy. Bathroom was complete with necessities and the bathtub is a tad bigger than what you will normally get.
Good spread of breakfast. Plenty of sweet pastries, american breakfast as well as pho. The rooftop bar is nicely done up with a pool table, however it was a bit dull when we were there. Maybe it's due to the fact it was a Tuesday?
What was a let-down was the location. Nothing much to do around the area, except plenty of japanese restaurants and lounges. There is however a Vietnamese restaurants called Highway 4 that has some pretty decent fried rice noodle, and they also serve Vietnamese vodka. Once you get bored of the area the Old Quarters is about 15mins away. Pubs and shopping awaits! Taxi from the Old Quarters was 70k Dong past midnight.
In Summary, this will be a good hotel for families and businessmen. For those wanting a party scene, better head on to a hotel near the Old Quarters!
