“Best shower in the world”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

The hotel is in a great location within Saigon, an abundance of shops, markets, restaurants and landmarks nearby. The price and value for money is great and my personal favourite is the shower. After a long flight, these new age showers with steam sauna, lights, spa jets, various water heads and even a radio were my highlight haha

The view from the hotel window and from the outdoor pool on the the 17th floor provided great views of the city. The room itself was quite small although provided everything you desire, and the housekeeping was very frequent and welcoming. The free breakfast wasn't the best quality.

Very good hotel with reasonable prises. Room were quite small but very nice and clean. The bed was very good to sleep! Rooftop pool is also quite small but still spacious enough to cool down. Sunbeds were also great. Location were perfect - close everything. Would definitely stay in this hotel again.

A good modern style hotel in a busy central position. Comfortable hotel and rooms with standard layout. I had a single room with an extra large double bed, the view from my 6th floor window was a view across the roof tops, but the view from the roof top swimming pool is right across Saigon. Step outside and take your life in your hands trying to cross the street.

Room Tip: You probably get a better view the higher up you go.

My family and friends enjoyed our stay here. We stayed this hotel in 2013 and 2014, 3 days max. each time. All the rooms are clean and secured. Our room had a minor issue due to the shower head, it drop off while showering. But when we inform room service about the problem they repaired it immedately..... great services. The room rates are very reasonable and it comes with free breakfast. The staff are polite, helpful and smiling always. i would recommend to this hotel to my friends.

This was our first stop in Vietnam & we stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel decor is reminiscent of a past era and looks a bit tired overall, none the less we found our room clean, compact and basically comfortable for sleeping - not really designed for relaxing in during your awake hours. This isn't a problem if you're out and about most of the time, and for that purpose the hotel really well positioned in the central part of the city.
We found the hotel staff friendly and helpful.
We would probably choose somewhere different to stay if we returned to HCMC, but for the money it was good.

Stayed 11 days in May / June 2014 at the hotel.The hotel has 4 stars with deserved 5.Personalet are very friendly and helpful At 6 o'clock pm.in the evening the staff took a walk around the room and asked if we wanted new towels-I have not experienced other places.Breakfasts was from at 6am and not like some places 6.30.det was a fine morgenbuffed hotel had no lack. the pool was quite small and disappointing at first sight.But it was not much used as both reclining chairs and enough sun all day, so no prioblemmer.
location was close to the market and walking distance to everything in District 1 (downtown Ho Chi Minh) Very quiet in the hotel area at night.
More expensive hotel than I normally use, but definitely money each
