4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

We stayed at this hotel for two nights 22/6-23/6/14. The hotel is well presented overall and service was to an acceptable standard. We had private transfers to and from Ho Chi Minh Airport that were on time and handled well although the first vehicle (an old Toyota 4wd) was not expected and out-dated in contrast with the new 5 series bmw we went back to the airport in. The rooms are reasonably well appointed and serviced but some of the electronic fixtures and fittings could do with a freshen up. Buffet breakfast was well catered as was the al la carte dinner service. Free shuttle service around the city loop was very convenient and well timed. Would come back here again.

Room Tip: Anything 8 levels and higher will provide great views across this amazingly dense city.

Suprisingly great. Stayed here as part of a deal and probably wouldn't have chosen otherwise but can recommend highly. Great staff service and really comfortable well appointed quite rooms. The food awesome...the buffet exceptional value.

Stayed three nights with my wife here and the room very pleasant snd breakfast ok. District 5 location but has shuttle and only a few $ buy taxi to District 1. The staff all very good and would definitely stay again. It's also ok to walk around and see another part of Ho Chi Minh City.

From the moment we were met at the airport by the driver from the Hotel, who greeted us with a friendly smile and a bottle of water we knew it was going to be a great hotel. It certainly lived up to expectations. Breakfast was great, restaurant had plenty of choice for lunch and dinner. Staff were excellent and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Even though the Hotel is located in District 5, the Hotel runs a regular shuttle bus. Pool was great.
Staff were all very professional and friendly. Highly recommend.

Everything at this hotel was as promised on the website. Excellent facilities and professional staff.
We took the upgrade to the Club floor and were very impressed. The gift shop in the lobby offered quality products.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Club lounge floor
