We stayed at this hotel in HoChiMinh City for three nights at the beginning of our trip to Southeast Asia. It was great way to start our trip. located in District 1 we were in easy walking distance to most of the sites we wanted to visit. The area is the nicest part of the city with many luxury hotels and high-end shopping and directly across from the Opera House. The area was safe and we felt comfortable walking around at night. Saigon Saigon hotel bar is a famous landmark and has a great view to sit at the balcony for an evening drink. The prices are expensive even by US standards, but to be expected at a hotel at the price point. You could walk to the corner store (exit the hotel and walk to the right) and get a beer for 14 thousand (about 66cents US). The hotel pool is a trendy setting and feels like a great retreat to relax at after sightseeing in a large hectic city. There was also a nice gym with new equipment. We used the hotel car service from the airport upon arrival, and it was very nice to be picked up in a new mercedes benz, but the price was $58 USD. We didnt want the hassle or fuss when arriving late into a new city so we opted for this service. They provided cold water and welcome beer on the 25 minute ride. On our way back to the airport for departure we opted for a taxi which was only 150 thousand dong or about $8 USD. The rooms were extremely comfortable, especiailly the bed. We had a great view of the city and the river from our room on the 21 floor. All the staff was very helpful and accomodating. There is a casino on the first floor, mainly slots and other video games (poker and roulette). Casino only takes USD so if you plan to gamble don't exchange your money. It was a great hotel and we would definitely stay here again.
