“tower of terror”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

This was the worst hotel I have stayed in in all of Vietnam. The hotel was far from everything. It took an hour to get there from the airport ane hd 45 minutes to get to district 1. The hotel advertises tours (to cu chu tunnels and mekong delta) and the paper says transportion in provided however, it is not and you need to leave an hour to get into the city to get to the tour agency.The bathroom is very dangerous there is a step that is deadly in the middle of the night. Our room was never cleaned and the rooms were very noisy. English is ve.ry limited so communication is very difficult. I wound up staying only one night instead of three due to all of these issues and at check out they didnt even inquire why I was leaving early. Probably due to the fact the room was already paid for. Do not stay here. Breakfast was the only good thing about this hotel even though it was not ready until 720 despite breakfast started at 7am.

If you want to be out of town to live closer to the locals then this hotel is one of several in the Thu Duc area of Ho Chi Minh. Rooms are huge for the price and met plenty of couples, families all using it. Owners work hard for English-speakings but need more practice. Downsides include - the local cockerels at 4.30am; the monk's chant next door, the motorbike repair shop down the lane; the train whistle at 4:15am; 4:40 am; 5:15am; 5:40am; 6:15am 6:40am; 7:15am and 7:40am etc. Also the highway between the current airport and the soon to be built international airport is under construction under your window. Either wear ear plugs or go somewhere wlse. Taxi to city is 150,000dongh at least plus road toll; or to ThuDuc market is 45,000dongh; or use local bus 8 or 93. WiFi drops out every day and landline telephone not connected.

Room Tip: VIP room - the largest - is on the fourth floor front corner but still only cost me $15 per night. B...
