My cousin who went to Ho Chi Minh in July stayed here and recommended this place to me. So with 2 of my friends, we booked and stayed here from the night of November 6 to the 9th, 2013.
From coordinating with them about our arrival time to the time we had to fly back home to Manila, everything was well organized.
PICK-UP SERVICE OFFERED
Upon informing them of our flight schedule, they offered us a pick-up service at the cost of 15 USD. Although this was more expensive than taking a taxi, we didn't mind paying extra to ensure our safety, given that we were unfamiliar with the place and we were arriving past midnight. We also availed of this service for hotel pick-up to airport.
Upon arrival in the hotel, we were warmly welcomed by Johnny just as if he was welcoming us into his own home. We were each served with a banana and a glass of water and were helped with our itinerary in Ho Chi Minh. Having no exact plan in place, Johnny's recommendations were just apt for our schedule. He then arranged for all our tours and even offered to take us to really take us to authentic, affordable Vietnamese eateries -- even if it was his birthday!
CLEAN & COMFORTABLE ROOMS
When we settled into our room (room 102), we were so pleased with the cleanliness and the look of the room and bathroom. The beds were comfortable and we had complimentary bottles of water.
The only thing that was amiss was that there were 3 of us checked in for a room for 3, but there were only 2 sets of bath towels prepared in the room. We had to follow up another set.
In the morning, breakfast looked appetizing. The plating was nice. Their coffee was actually better than Trung Nguyen's, which claims to be the No.1 coffee in Vietnam. As we were already late coming down for breakfast, our tour guide already showed up within minutes that our breakfast was served. We really appreciated that the hotel staff quickly offered to pack our breakfast for us to go. Our coffee drinks included!
- Their map around District 1 was a handy reference. That was the only map we used.
- Location is fairly accessible. We just walked to go to places to see in the city (except of course for the Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong River tours). We never took a taxi or a motorbike to get around. However, if you're not into walking, you may just want to hail a taxi.
- As our flight back was still at midnight, we were allowed to use their common shower rooms before we left for the airport even though we were already checked out.
- Although we generally loved our stay there, we hope that all the other staff would be as warm and friendly as Johnny. His warmth made a huge difference in our overall experience.
