We booked this hotel for a 4 nights stay on our way to Danang and I must say this hotel highly exceeded out expectation in every aspects. This hotel only opened on 18 Dec 2011 and we grabbed their opening promotion for a Club Room and I must said it was a good decision. I am not surprised that this hotel has climbed to #4 on tripadvisor in such a short time.
Hotel pick-up at the airport was a breeze and we were switfly escorted to the hotel, which is located in the junction of District 1 and 5. That means it is around 10 - 15 mins by car from the hotel to the city centre depending on traffic (about US $2 - 3 per way) and to us this is no hassle at all if we want to visit city centre 2-3 times a day. Do not be put off by the location as hotel cleaniness and enthusiams of staffs greatly make up for this slight 'shortfall' compared to hotels located right in downtown area.
This hotel has a team of young Vietnamese trying their best to cater to your needs. Some might not be as experienced but their zealousness make up for it, always serving you with a smile.
The room is modern and slightly bigger than hotels of this range, the bathroom design will put lots of 5* hotels around the world to shame. Beautiful hugh bathtub, shower and state of the art toilet bowl with seat heater and water splash for rinising your [--].........if you know what I mean. I suppose this is quite common in Japan but it's my first time so pardon my exhilaration.
The Club Room is highly recommended for the price you paid (compared to Hyatt Regency in Danang which I will write in a seperate review) and it is a nice haven to be in after a day out exploring Ho Chi Mnh, sitting in the club lounge outdoor area enjoying the view and tasting wine and hot foods. By the way they have quite good hot food selections, different menu everyday though I am not so keen on their deserts which to me is not very appealing and not many choices. I also hope they could put the mineral / sparkling water out for self-service rather than having to ask for refill all the time.
We seldom choose to stay in a Japanese brand hotel but this is for sure a very good base on your next visit to Ho Chi Minh.
