Was here recently for a company retreat and it was my first time in Vietnam so wasn't expecting much. Was sharing a double room with 2 colleagues and the room was very spacious and big. The only drawback was the additional makeshift bed that I had to sleep on since it was 3 to a double room. It really wasn't too comfortable and kept shifting and threatening to fold up onto me when I was sleeping in it so had to be extra careful.
What I really liked about this place was the central location, just next to the Tax shopping mall where there's a supermarket for you to buy necessities and to pack back a few more boxes of Vietnamese coffee as souvenirs. Spas and food options surround the area so all you need is a short walk. Ben Tanh market was also only about a 10 to 15 minute walk away. There are also many street vendors selling the intricate pop up cards but do remember to bargain if you're buying.
Breakfast was nothing fantastic and ends by 9.30am, which I felt was a little too early, was hoping that it could at least end at 10am instead. Variety wasn't huge but still edible. Would return to stay at this hotel again if I go back to Ho Chi Minh someday due simply to location. The friendly staff at the reception and housekeeping were a plus too.
