Hotel Equatorial Ho Chi Minh City

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a Luxury Escape Package. From the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we we dropped back at the airport this certainly was a luxury experience. The staff were amazing even going to the lengths of a staff member personally taking us to the flower market. Food was amazing, pool and cocktail bar great but I think what makes this Hotel stand out is definitely the Staff. Nothing was ever to much trouble. Highly recommend this Hotel.

Stayed at this hotel on the 23 May 17, transport was waiting for me at the airport arranged by the hotel.Booked in to the hotel no problems. I found the hotel staff EXTREMELY helpful., nothing was too much trouble. My room over looking the pool was extremely nice. The room itself was beautiful and clean and quite large. Went down to breakfast next morning, my God what a fantastic verity of food. You would be hard pushed to fine a better breakfast in Vietnam.I would like to sincerley congratulate managerment and staff on making my stay so memorable .Looking forward to coming back. Regards Brian

Very nice and helpful staff. The foyer very grand. Cafe and restaurants very modern and food is delicious. Great bar area. Easy access to the chaotic city by taxi. The only criticism we had was that the room and especially the bathroom could do with an upgrade.

Although a bit out of the city centre it was only a short and cheap taxi away. Rooms were nice, bathroom was a little dated but clean and functional. Staff were happy to help whenever needed and we thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon tea. With two kids in toe the team were accommodating. My only suggestion is to smile a bit more, it's not hard, I found only a handful of staff were a bit sad to serve, particularly so at the swim up bar. Pool was great and with plenty of lounges. Overall, very good.

Just stayed 3 nights as part of Luxury Escape deal. Hotel was faultless, ticked all the boxes for location, price, food, amenities. Staff had good English and service was excellent. Busy area but noise did not bother us. Highly recommend.

We stayed at this Hotel for two nights which was included in our Luxury Escapes Package. We liked everything about this Hotel. The room was comfortable although it was a bit noisy at night with the constant traffic below. The pool area was lovely, loved the swim-up bar. The breakfast was beautiful with a great selection and service was awesome. We had a six course dinner included in our package and we were blown away by quality of the food, it was absolutely beautiful and the service was exceptional. The location was a bit out of the centre, so needed taxis too far to walk in the heat.

We were a 3 generation family (grandparents, daughter & hubby with two teenage granddaughters) and spent 2 nights at this admirable hotel en route to Hoi part of a Luxury Escapes venture. We could not commend it highly enough!!. It was just a wonderful hotel on all size and adjoining, great dining and relaxing pool area. We took advantage of their 1/2 day city tour...super experience!!

I was at this hotel as part of a package so don't know the specific price I paid. I was a bit hesitant as it looked a large hotel and we've never stayed in district 5 before. However although I think it had a high occupancy judging from the breakfast room, crowds didn't seem to be an issue, either at the pool or for that matter at breakfast although your choices of where to sit were limited and I'd advise you to email and book up any complimentary spa treatments by email in advance. District 5 also wasn't a problem and it wasn't too expensive to get to the places we wanted to go by taxi. As for the room and facilities other reviewers have commented - basically everything was fine. I don't think there are any rooms with a significant view, except of the city, but this is what you'd expect. Two things I would like to comment on were the included afternoon tea, which was well above expectations, excellent drink selections and lovely food. The other thing was the effort they went to to assist me with my gluten allergy. They have a gluten free menu for diner and for breakfast the chef personally went through the various dishes. Best of all they had little gluten free bread roles they said they got from a baker in HCMC and they were as good as if not better than any others I've had anywhere in the world.

My daughter & I booked to stay at Hotel Equatorial while staying in Ho Chi Ming City, what an oasis, we loved our stay in this excellent hotel. The real beauty was the service, it could not be faulted in any way. Every single employee within the hotel would do anything to assist in any way, & with a smile on their face. I recommend this hotel to anyone, it is in a great central position, is very clean & the food is so delicious.

Very comfortable hotel with perfect service. Restaurant was first class, clean and food variety excellent. Food was hot and you could order special coffees included in the buffet. Hotel was located south of most attractions but only a 50000 vnd taxi ride to the main district.
