My family (2 adults & 1 child) stayed here at room 423 from 4 December 2010 for 4 nights and we paid a total of USD480.48 (early bird promotion) for the Junoir Suite booked through the hotel's website.
We reached there around 6pm+ and was given a room upon check-in, the staffs at the reception area were friendly!
It was quite messy along the way from lobby to our room due to the renovation but once we reached the room, we were quite happy to see a rather 'new' room comparing to the outside. The room was clean and we were very pleased to come back to a clean room after our daily outings, thanks to the housekeeper!
One thing to note, try to ask for rooms far from the rooftop bar as it can be noisy at night! Our friend's family was in room 427, it was so noisy that they requested to change room the next day late afternoon after we came back from our tour and they were given another room less than an hour upon request!
The bathroom was ok, shower at the bath tub with removable shower head plus the complimentary soaps & shampoo, etc.
The pools were ok!
The location is very convenient, near to shopping malls and cafes or restaurants. Walking distance to Ben Thanh Market too. The only challenge was crossing the busy roads like in many places in Vietnam.
The complimentary breakfast buffet was good! When the front desk staff found out we couldn't have breakfast in the hotel on 2 occasions, she arranged to pack sandwiches and water for us to bring along on those mornings! Very good service!
We also requested 16-seater van to airport at USD35 and the service was good too!
Overall, my family will stay here again!
