“Nice hotel!! Friendly staff!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Stayed here during a recent trip to VN with some friends for two nights. The staff were very nice, accommodating to our needs and concerns. The location is superb. We stayed mainly around district 1 and from this hotel is a quick motorcycle ride to everything you would want to do and see. Located in a clean area, well as clean as can be for HCM city.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with friends

It was a fantastic location right in the middle of Ho Chi Minh.

Even though we were on the 5th floor it was very noisy. And my husband who is 6.2 found the shower close to impossible.

It was a reasonable breakfast with a mix if western and Vietnamese food.

Value for money good mainly for its great location.

We booked one family deluxe and one super deluxe room. Both rooms were spacious and in good condition. The location of the hotel is superb! Very convenient and walkable distance to halal eateries and the Ben Thanh market. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful.

The only complain would be that the flush is weak.. it requires multiple flushing to flush everything out. Other than that, everything is good! Would recommend anyone to stay here.

We booked 2 twin rooms via agoda and couldn't ask for much more considering how much we paid. Room was clean, safe worked, service and location were great.

Early check in around midday was extremely helpful.

The hotel was very conveniently located near shopping and great food places. There was a lot you could see just from a walking distant. Everything else was a small taxi ride away. It was in a lively place which we really liked since we really enjoyed heading out about town at night. The place was clean for dusty HCM. Staff was very friendly although conversing was a bit difficult. We didn't get try the food.

If you are into shopping branded and local products then this hotel is a very good option.
Several five star hotels are within the area so expect posh boutiques to be present. Of course, with these shops within the vicinity, nice restaurants and coffee shops nearby are also close.

Tourist spots like the Opera house and Notre Dame are 5 -10 minutes walk from this hotel.

Safety is good in this area as it is well lighted. The hotel itself has good security so we never felt unsecured at anytime.

The breakfast buffet they offer is excellent and is in wide array of food(Chinese / Vietnamese/ Japanese/ and Western cuisines). Rooms are comfortable although we got the room without the windows. But still ok for the price.

A little smile from the staff wouldn't hurt as well... =)

The hotel is very central and close to some really good places to see and eat. Great coffee houses are close by and it is just a short walk to the markets. The night markets at Ben Tahn, after about 7pm is a great place to frequent for authentic meals and shopping.
