Our group arrived at the Northern Hotel after touring through Vietnam for more than 2 weeks. Although the reception area looks rather nice, it is best to stay away from this hotel. That said, the hotel is centrally located and close to all the sights Saigon has to offer. The rooms are very small; badly need renovation and there is absolutely no view whatsoever except to a filthy dirty wall belonging to a very close neighboring house. No view of the city at all which is really annoying. I will not comment on the bathroom – it was one of the lesser nice facilities available in Vietnam and actually rather a shame to the otherwise pleasant hotels we encountered during our trip. Hot and cold water were a gamble – sometimes yes, most times no.
The breakfast was o.k. and offered a variety of European and Asian food – something I always enjoy as I like trying different cuisines. But as already mentioned by another rater, there was no egg station which made the eggs etc. that were being held warm look pretty sad.
I will also comment that the staff was rather uninterested in assisting guests – a shame and totally unnecessary. One always had the feeling one was interrupting something important that they were just doing.
No, I would not go back to this hotel again.
