1. Excellent location, very near Ben Thanh Markets 2. Room: quite spacious, quite clean, but a bit too dark and it will be better that they can use the new kettle, softer bed and new bath tub. Sound-proof can be improved. 3. The staff is very helpful 4. Breakfast: limited choices, the place which is serving the breakfast is too small. it will be better they can change it to the largest place
Booked online through their website (non refundable) . The room was fine , it was a place to lay your head, And breakfast is really good!! Our air conditioning broke for the whole day. The staff did nothing to help. All they kept saying was one more hour..(it had now been at least 6hours). When I asked for a discount on our room (because we paid for air conditioning) the staff refused and said because it costs them to fix it they cannot offer me a discount. We also asked on recommendations on things to do and they were not much help.
We chose this place on recommendation due to its central location to the Ben Thanh Markets. Didn't eat at the breakfast buffet as we went to the markets each morning for fresh iced Vietnamese milk coffee and rice noodle soup or rolls, etc so cannot comment on the breakfast but it seemed always busy. There is only 1 lift so it could take a while to get to level 8 if you are waiting for it to come down. Shower gel and shampoo are the same liquid so if you are fussy BYO, there's no conditioner. As we were leaving the reception accused us saying a small towel was missing from the kids room. We told them it was the kids, maybe they brought it into our room. what are they going to do with a small towel??? Why would we take it? It is not like it is hotel continental ... Don't know if they are just saying that to charge us extra but we told them don't worry about it they said it was ok. Clean, we forgot about our breakfast leftovers accidentally in our room and found that housekeeping had put it in the fridge for us. Cafe and restaurants close by, foreign exchange near markets. Ben Thanh markets become night markets at night. I think the room only cost $40. Took 1 star off for the towel incident
1. Excellent location 2. Breakfast is included & it was good ! 3. You can choose the size of the room to suit your fancy 4. However, there is only 1 lift ... 5. WIFI can be better ... 6. Not for the light sleepers as this hotel is near several entertainment joints
Hotel was recently remodeled. Good A/C. Always hot water when needed, nice towels, room was well designed. I like the walk in shower, so much safer than the gymnastics entering and exiting a tub. The breakfast was good, with Asian and other choices. Fresh coffee and juice. The staff was helpful and courteous. Not too noisy (relatively speaking, don't expect silence its a noisy crowded city.) Walk to Ben Thanh area and most central sites. Felt safe outside at night. Strong value for the price.
I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. From the doorman, to the reception staff, breakfast staff and even housekeeping, everyone was extremely pleasant and greeted me each day with a smile and hello.. The hotel has just been recently refurbished and I had a great room on the 7th floor at the back. The room was quite large, had lovely polished wooden floors and was decorated in a Vietnamese style. Being at the back of the hotel, it was extremely quiet. And it was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent, with both Western and Asian cuisine. Lots of fresh fruit too. And the area was fantastic. Lots of Cafes, bars, convenience stores and only a few minutes walk to Ben Thanh Markets. And motor scooters everywhere to take you very cheaply to any part of the city. I actually had friends staying at a 4 star hotel on Nguyen Hue, and they said they prefered my hotel for the ambience, location and quietness. They paid around $170 per night for theirs, and I paid around $45 per night for mine !! I was orginally going to stay for one week only, but because I liked it so much, I stayed for two. I couldnt fault this hotel and I thank all the staff for their help, politeness and friendliness.!! I would highly recommend this hotel.
Stay 4 nights before a flight home. This hotel is very central location, 3 mins walk to benthanh market and wakable to many tourist sides. I booked mekong delta and cuchi tunnels tours which were pretty amazing Airport drop off offered 13$ Valued money, friendly staff and good buffet breakfast Highly recomended
