Great hotel, easy access to all sights

The hotel was lovely. The lobby and attention to detail is also impressive. The breakfast was amazing and had something for everybody. The rooms were tidy and spacious. Our toilet broke at 11pm and they had a maintenance man up to our room in less than 3 mins. We liked this hotel as it was on a semi quiet street but only a few mins walk to the famous Ho Chi Minh round about, which is quite a sight to behold. They offer a complimentary shuttle to All the major sights at regular intervals and the staff are very professional. Overall very happy with our three night stay.

5 Star, I don't think so

Well I am pleased I only paid $90.00 (half price) or I would be even more dissapointed. At 8am The staff started using a drill and rotor hammer outside my room, asked them to stop and 2 hours later still working out in the hall. Offered me 30,000d ($1.50us) voucher for cab ride. Gave us wrong room to start (smoking 2 twin beds ) Mold in bathtub shower. Like I said not 5 star hotel

Excellent food but ...

The food is very good, however the maids did not change the sheets. I was grossed out to discover this. Perhaps and isolated circumstance.

A piece of America in Vietnam

This hotel is actually quite far from the city center, which can be a good thing because you are surrounded by the 'real' city, not the tourist-centric area. However, this also makes for quite a journey if you want to go to tourist attractions (the hotel will get a taxi for you). This hotel goes far out of its way to make you feel like you are not in Vietnam at all. Everything is in English (with huge markups on food and drinks, priced in USD only). The best thing to do is to leave the hotel and look for the numerous local businesses nearby. I found it disappointing that the hotel tries to make you forget you are in Vietnam altogether.

We had a pleasant stay at Hotel

We had a pleasant stay at Hotel Equatorial Ho Chi Minh. The room was cozy and comfortable. Amenities were complete. Though the hotel was relatively far from District 1, the free shuttle service was a big help to us. Loved the food and service at their seafood restaurant, Orientica though it was quite expensive.
