Not one of our best hotel experiences!
All the hotels selected for our trip through Vietnam were good to excellent. This is the one that was a big disappointment to us.
It is well located next to the Sky tower in District 1. That is probably its best feature.
As many boutique hotels in Vietnam are described this is a very thin frontage 9 storey (or so) building and as a consequence the rooms are small (at least the three we saw were).
We were shown to room 302, which was just about enough room to place a small double in. It had no windows nor did the tiny en-suite. We both experienced the insides of the Chu Chi tunnels without too much claustrophobia but one minute in this room prompted us to ask for a change!
After viewing a couple of other rooms we upgraded to a room on the seventh floor. It was larger, had a view to the rear but was in poor repair.
Within a short while of moving into this room, late evening, the door lock jammed trapping my wife in the bathroom. After spending some time trying to free her I called down and two obliging young men arrived, obviously concerned, with a tool bag and tried but also failed. After being trapped for 20 minutes my wife moved as far away from the door whilst the young men took it in turns to shoulder the door open. Leaning against the dated corner bath/shower caused it to come away from the wall, which was an accident waiting to happen.
Needless to say sleeping on it, we decided to move out first thing in the morning. Sadly, the reception staff were not too gracious as I paid for the ‘upgrade’ and left.
Maybe we were unlucky but this is a budget hotel with facilities that were not to our liking.
Breakfast was Vietnamese fare with little international options. It was served in a narrow ground floor room.
