“More than adequate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Our travel company chose the Aquari as part of a group tour but, as we booked an extra night directly, we feel able to comment.objectively. It is, as many have commented, primarily a downtown business hotel but we do not understand the negative comments about the location - it was quite close enough to the centre for us. We arrived at 2.00am, after horrendous flight delays and no opportunity to warn the hotel, but the reservation had been held and the night staff were extremely welcoming. It's nothing special, and we can't comment on the value relative to similar hotels in HCMC, but the rooms have everything a weary traveller needs and all the staff were great. We'd very happily return tomorrow!

This hotel was in a good location and had friendly staff but that is probably the only plus. the breakfast was very average, bacon that had no taste at all and lukewarm coffee.
The rooms reek of cigarette smoke so obviously people are smoking in the rooms.
We stayed here because we were on a tour but would not have booked this place if travelling by ourselves,I am sure there is alot nicer hotels than this but of course more expensive.

Phenomenal. I could not have made a better choice of hotel! The staff was professional, but what is most remarkable, extremely kind. My sister and I checked in and were warmly received. The front desk personnel and bellman all seemed to go above and beyond to show us kindness and make us feel as comfortable as possible. From sending off my 75 postcards and making sure we understood the directions to the market to the phone calls to verifying that that our cab to the airport should not be more than 170VND, we were assured throughout our every move. In fact, when we had to deal with the fiasco of our tour company to Cu Chi tunnels having forgotten about us, the staff not only accompanied us to a taxi to help us arrange a day visit with him, but they also talked to the driver while on the road-more than once- and they were right there to help us clear up a misunderstanding about the pricing of the journey when we pulled in 7 hours later. At Aquari, we learned firsthand that every guest is a special one.

Thank you to all of you who seemed to effortlessly deliver impeccable service.

Aquari is the best!

Room Tip: The breakfast was phenomenal! The mulberry juice, fruits and Vietnamese cuisine were great!

Another excellent stay in Vietnam. We had four excellent stays.
In Ho Chi Minh the prices are more expensive and so also the hotel was much more expensive (the transfer from the airport was quite expensive).
The location is good even though not in the real centre but this may be also an advantage.
The breakfast was good and the room really nice.
A very good stay even though the prices are quite expensive (compared to what we paid in the other three stays in Vietnam).

The Hotel is quite new and in the heart of District 1.
Special the Mini Suites in the upper floors with small whirl pool gives you a better feeling with more space for a reasonable price. Ask for river view .
If you look for the night life of HCMC the famous Disco Apacolypse is very near to the hotel, but don't worry, you cannot hear any noise. The rooms are good isolated, very clean, no carpets on the floor and high speed internet without boring passwords everywhere in the hotel. The bed is spacious and comfortable.
Breakfast is ok, only the quality of juices is so so.

This hotel offers rooms at a very reasonable price in the center of tourist area. As far as I'm concerned, most of guests who usually stay there are businessmen, so ambiance is rather calm. Breakfast is good, staff is very accommodating. On our previous stay, we booked River View Deluxe -- the room was perfect for the price, modern and spacious.

Room Tip: Choose river-view on higher floors -- the view is worth it.
