Stayed 2 nights at this small, quaint, and charming hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. The staff is pleasant and eager to help. However, the room itself with a kitchen was very small and restrictive. But the real problem was the air con which was directly over the bed and was challenging to get the temp just right. Consequently, the room temp was usually too cold with the air blowing over the bed and was too hot if you the air con was off. The hotel wouldn't supply you an extra blanket either so this made it uncomfortable when dealing with the blowing air in the room.
Also, the hotel is a bit out of the way with respect to the central area with all the restaurants and Opera House.
Fortunately for us we were rarely in our room during our stay which made our challenge be mainly sleep related.
