A great spot with excellent service, this hotel had a tasteful, boutique look. The hotel restaurant serves really excellent food, so we dined on pho every morning, and had a few jetlagged meals brought to our room by the friendly and helpful staff.
The hotel is located closer to the airport and a short ways away from the bustle of Saigon's city center, but it's a short and low-cost cab ride to the action.
A few of the highlights:
Both Vietnamese and Western food options available at the affordable rooftop restaurant
Complimentary minibar restocked daily
Great AC in the rooms
Desks in the room should you need to work on a laptop
Quiet so that we could get a good night's sleep
Safe in room to store your valuables
A few accessible restaurants nearby that you can walk to
My only possible complaints would be the walls in our room, which could use a touch up on the paint, but that didn't matter much to us. Also, our windows didn't offer a view, they were clouded glass for privacy, but again, this wasn't important to us.
