I really wanted to write 2 separate reviews for the hotel and the Chit Chat cafe but couldn't. So it's going to be an average rating.

The hotel rooms and room care are great. Lovely bedding and really taken care of. The one downside is that the windows aren't double glazed and as it's on a main road can be noisy, I would recommend earplugs.

Service in the bar area was great really friendly and helpful. However what let it down was the cafe.

I are from the a la carte in the Chit Chat as vegetarian and the a la carte looked the best option. The main was spaghetti in olio sauce with very few vegetables so disappointing. The tiramisu desert was served twice as it was still solid the first time and part frozen the second, which on reflection is very poor for a 5 star hotel and for the cost of the meal which was very high so I'd give a 1 overall.

Others on the trip ate from the buffet and were happy so would suggest this is the better option.

It isn't in the city centre.
The Equatorial is a large hotel with all the amenities any city based traveller could want. We stayed for three days there. It is however a good 25 minutes from the central area and there is a need to ensure that when getting a taxi you choose one with a meter (as in London or NYC) we used Vina Sun always as they were bookable and always arrived on time. The concierge guys were very helpful in this regard with bookings. Good pool area with plenty of space to lounge around if you want to. The spar was a little basic and not as good as ones experienced in other cities. We only ate in the hotel for breakfast and this was in a large area with access to the terrace overlooking the pool. It was fine when the coach parties had gone otherwise a bit of a feeding frenzy. Room was well appointed with all one would expect of a hotel of this type.

Really nice, friendly hotel. My only complaint is the free wifi was a bit hit and miss. Sometimes it worked well, sometimes it didn't. Free shuttle bus was great. The buffet dinner was unbelievably good. Fresh seafood (including crabs, prawns and fish) cooked to order, steak etc cooked to order.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was clean and tidy with everything you would expect in a fine hotel.
The Bar staff in the lobby were lovely. Engaging with our 2 yr old daughter and keeping her entertained.
We dined in the Oceanica Restaurant. We had a seafood set menu (1.2 million Dong). Was amazing.
We were lucky enough to be driven to our early flight by a great staff member in the hotels beautiful BMW. We would recommend this hotel. It's a small cab ride to most tourist destinations. Just use reputable Taxi companies.
