2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have been staying here for more than 4 years, seeing though the changes and renovation. How unfortunate, they are not maintaining its standards. The last time I wrote a 1 page complaint was last year and then this is the 2nd time I am writing a complaint about this place. The only reason why I am still staying here is because of the receptionist whom I respect as Sister San, working at this hotel. My room has baby cockroaches running around and the best part, it is in the fridge!!! The water is never cold in the night but only in the day. Do we pay a discount for this since hot water is only available in the morning and not in the night? Is this even a hotel? The climax is here... they LOST MY SHIRTS through Laundry. Knowing someone who travels monthly, I bring my best shirts for my trips. Imagine, 2 of my favourite shirts went missing together with other garments and the hotel only can say sorry, making the cleaner to compensate me 700,000 dong. My bag of cloths which I sent to Laundry worth more than SGD300!!! Is the hotel even taking responsibility of guests things and matters? Can we trust this hotel again? You guys decide for yourself.

I uaed to stay in the same A&EM hotel across the street in the past, but that has closed. This trip, choose this. Nothing impresses me. Rooms are dim. Non existance of sound proofing. You can hear anyone at the corridor and even late at night where people have their supper at the streets. Time to hunt for another hotel for my next trip.

It's not a 4 or 5 star place. You get what you pay for. It's located within walking distance of many places in and around district 1. We stayed a few nights. We found the rooms to be somewhat modern and comfortable. They have breakfast buffet in the morning. It's about average. The staff seem to be friendly and the rooms are cleaned well. Showers are stand up and easy to get in and out. I would stay here again.

We stayed in this hotel as it was close to hospital. My wife had a bad car accident and rather then stay in the hospital we rented a room here. The staff was accommodating and sensitive to my wife's condition. They brought us ice when we needed, did extra cleanings and made sure her stay was comfortable while I and some of her friends care for her along with a private nurse who slept over a few nights in the room.

Room - standard facilities (without iron), bed (comfort and provide you the feelings of 4 star value) Bathroom - bathtub style TV - Vietnam channel, English/Chinese with variety of sport, movies, news and many more. Breakfast - maybe limited if peak holidays as the food may not be enough to replenish since only a person handling the cooking, cleaning and preparing your half boil egg/poach/omelette

The staff are friendly, although a better understanding of English would have helped. I had some problems with the shower, but they addressed it quickly. The bellmen are superb! Always at your service with a smile.

Very close to the main Ben Thahn market in Saigon. Excellent location, however the rooms of this hotel are old. Relatively clean enough for 1-2 night considering you spend the whole day out exploring. They have good arrangements and partnerships with tour operators which helped us made unannounced. Key element to complete our vacation!

The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that the location is great. That being said, there are a million other hotels in the same area- you can do better. The room I had only had a small window- more of a porthole really. It overlooked an alley, which at night was full of street vendors and quite loud. The room was poorly lit and seemed dingy. There were spots on the linens. Bathroom was small and outdated. The computer in the room didn't work. Thankfully, I had a very early flight the next morning and did not spend very much time in the room. I also stayed at the A & Em Royal Palace, which is just around the corner and a nicer place.

This hotel is very good value at 35usd a night for superior room inc breakfast. It's very well located near Ben thanh market. There is nothing to complain about this hotel except perhaps it's a little noisy with doors slamming in the hallway but it's not a big issue. Would definitely stay again next time I'm in the area.

Stayed here for 4 nights. It was recommended by a local friend. The design of lobby and rooms is quite fun/hip (by Saigon standards). Staff was nice and meant well, but generally inept. I couldn't bother to go find something else, so it obviously wasn't that bad, but I thought it was a bit overpriced for what was on offer. PS: Definitely do not go for the basement rooms, you'll recoil in horror.
