“Great Price, Central Location”
Reviewed 19 October 2012 via mobile

I was booked into this hotel as part of a group tour. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were well sized and the room was very comfortable. The staff were very helpful at all times. The hotel was located centrally to Ben Thanh markets and other attractions. Breakfast was included in our price but I'm not sure if it was for all. Breakfast was very good with a mixture of western and eastern food. For the price, this hotel was very adequate, clean and central.

Stayed September 2012

This was our first hotel in Vietnam and we were pleasantly surprised to find such an immaculate hotel with friendly staff for the price. The room was beautifully presented. The hotel was central to everything in District 1. The breakfast buffet catered for all nationalities with exceptional staff in the restaurant. They couldn't have been any happier or more eager to help.

The only downside was when we were over charged for a day tour by the reception staff at the front desk. (US$30 when other tour guests were charged US$15). When we questioned reception staff upon return to the hotel we were told the price was US$25, we were then told by reception staff that the other tour guests were lying but after some arguing we were refunded US$5 as a compromise.

Despite the tour pricing scam, we would recommend the hotel.

Chose this 3 star Hotel as it was located in District 1 and booked a Deluxe room. Big room, clean and well equiped. Located within walking distance of river and shopping. Ate in local street food places by just pointing at food we wanted. So easy, tasty and cheap. Ho Chi Minh was the best place to start our Vietnwm holiday.

This hotel was arranged by our tour group. It is in a great location but had several problems. It was raining hard and our ceiling started linking. We were on the 8th floor the top bit the elevator says 20 floors? No umbrellas and the sound system for the TV was terrible. Breakfast wasn't great either . I think it is a new hotel and has potential as a 3* hotel . The rooms were otherwise modern and comfortable . Make sure you have a window!!!

Lovely staff great service, convenience location, beautiful room. It would be a place to recommend to all tourists and business travelers. From the hotel you can walk around the city center to discover the people culture and the way the sell their business. The lovely shopping is not very far from the hotel you can find yourself with variety of gifts and a lot of costume clothing. The hotel restaurant provides international cuisines specialty Vietnamese with lovely taste for buffet lunch.

I will be back for sure on next trip.!
