I am writing this review to commend the staff on their absolute honesty and integrity. On 3 March 2018 I had an iced Vietnamese coffee watching the world go past just near the Ben Thanh Markets. Upon leaving I was given the bill for about 45,000 DNG. I handed over to the young gentleman what I thought was a 50,000 DNG note. I think I may have been distracted by a young lady on the street trying to sell me something. I then walked away down the street. Sooner after, a young lady came running after me telling me that I must have given them too much. To my amazement, I had handed over a $500,000 DNG note (silly me!) I was truly humbled by this experience and cannot give enough compliments or say enough of the staff's honesty. This is my third visit to Ho Chi Minh City and I continue to see many instances of fantastic service given by the Vietnamese people. I wish I had taken the name(s) of the staff involved, but I'm sure they will recall this recent incident. I also recommend the Hotel management highly commend their staff in a way they see fit.

Love thos place second time here. Executive suite has great bath and shower comfy bed and clean rooms. Ive stayed at new world hotel and saigon prince and this room hands down beats theirs for comfort.

It was overall better than what I expected The room we stayed in was really nice and spacious, the breakfast was really nice and served in a classy way. The whole staff was really kind and always helpful. Keep on the great job guys :)

Great choice of location as everything was in walking distance and Ben than markets right across the road. We were so impressed with our room being a suite/ VIP which was highly affordable considering how immaculate they were. Beds were extremely comfortable and we had no issues with water, appliances etc. breakfast was delicious, the staff offered friendly service and were helpful with holding our bags for us upon checkout and organising airport transfers. Highly recommend

This Hotel was not safe .Stealing money ,Room cleaner are opening bags to steal money.Room was not cleaned properly everyday .I got sick .Always very dusty . Booked window room ,But cant open window. Not wroth for money. Some of the front desk staff and customer services staff was good.

Center location, Great staff, Room spacious, Worth every penny, I'm looking forward to comeback again soon. Great buffet breakfast, the staff was very helpful, always smile while I come back. Highly recommended.

While checking out I was sprung with a huge bill for a messley few cans of soda an bottles of water a tin of Pringle's an a crunchy bar, -the price = 1.57 million dong Not sure if they miss calculated or in actual fact the were incredibly over priced. -lesson learnt -didn't have time to question it but wohhhhhh

Recently stayed for three nights in this very convenienetly situated hotel. It is just a short walk from the Ben Thanh bus station which is easily reached from the airport on the new airport shuttles. We arrived very early but the reception were friendly and helpful and made sure we had a room by midday. The room was clean and attractive with a nice modern bathroom. The shower over the bath set-up was a little strange and it was difficult to keep the floor dry as there was a gap between the bath and the wall. The room cleaners were very good at getting the room dry and oresentable again every day. The hotel athough close to a night market was quiet. Breakfast was good and there was the added bonus of afternoon tea with cakes and snacks. I would recommend this hotel as it is close to many of the well-known sites such as Notre Dame and the Post Office.

This hotel is well situated for many of the things you want to see and do in Ho Chi Minh City. It is straight across the street from the markets too. Our room was quite small and had no window but we had a spa bath! The staff were extremely helpful and even invited us to join them in a meal on the Tet holiday! Breakfast was quite good but if you left it too late everything was a bit cold.

We took a middle priced room, (always best to avoid the windowless rooms). I found the staff to be pleasant and keep an eye out for Mr Dong Anh,, very friendly,efficient guy who always appears to be on duty doing something, he makes the place complete.A little room noise but forgiven for the comfortable bed and pillows,, it's Vietnam , your always going to hear noise from the street. I do not like the lighting panels beside the bed !!! Grrrrrr. Buffet breakfast was superb with a reasonably extensive room service/dining menu.Great location. Room and particularly the bathroom was clean. For $50 a night I thought this place was better than most at similar pricing.
