Just returned from a weekend trip to HCMC. Stayed at the Equatorial for 2 nights with family. We requested connecting and non smoking rooms via email after booking online as we were travelling with children. The hotel replied back almost immediately with confirmation and the connecting rooms (rooms 629 and 630 overlooking the nice pool) were set up as requested. Excellent start to our stay! Hotel is at a nice quiet location, with convenient shuttle bus leaving every 2 hours stopping at various key sites in HCMC. The shuttle buses are big, comfortable and safe (important in HCMC traffic). Taxi back to hotel cost only 43,000 VND (about USD2 - but make sure you use Vinasun or Mai Linh taxis). Breakfast buffet at the hotel was superb, and the dinner buffet (at the Chit Chat) was even better, with fresh grilled seafood and various meats cooked on the spot, design your own hotpots, and superb sushi/sashimi selections. Also highly recommend the hotel Spa. Excellent value for money at 650,000 VND per person, the treatmnt room was spotless, the therapists were highly skilled, and the level of service was as good as the best places in Asia. Free WIFI at the lobby, but chargable in the rooms (only shortcoming I can think of). We highly recommend Hotel Equatorial and commend them on their excellent service, warm welcome, and obvious pride in their hotel and their job. We will be back for sure.
