Stayed for 3 nights on 31/08/17 to 3/9/17 in Deluxe room with windows. We are 4 couples in total. Room rates are not standardised as some are with bathtub and some are not. No views. Windows are locked. Very small that we have no space to open up our 29" luggage. We have to shift the chairs & table to make space for our luggage. I don't understand why they place unsable PC set on the dressing table. Those who are big in size unable to enter the shower glass door (deluxe room with window w/o bathtub). So please take note if u are big in size make sure u ask for room with bathtub. They will hold your passports until the day u check out. I had to argue to get my passport back as i've made full payment of my stay upon booking. Those who booked via booking.com has to surrrender their passport - another stupid hotel's procedures. Nonetheless, credits given to the cleanliness of the hotel. Room are made every day - new bedsheet, towels etc. Staff are fast to requests. Location is perfect. 5mins walk to Ben Thanh Market & to the street of Halal restaurants, shops of telekung, shawl, tudung etc (exit hotel turn right & turn left to the first road entrance). Tour booths, 24hrs minimart exactly below the hotel (same street). Massage spa all over the places. Walkable to Saigon Square. If u take cab tell them Saigon Square beside Takashimaya. There are total of 3 Saigin Sqr in HCMH. Laundry - hotel will charge u by per piece. Go to the laundry shop opposite the hotel across the traffic light facing the junction. 40k per kg. Express (same day collection) 60k per kg.
We had a 5 floor window room although it did not have a view unless you like looking at tin roofs. The value for money was great and it included breakfast which offered a reasonable selection of food. The location in District One was perfect with anything you could possibly need handy and nearby.
We stayed at the white hotel for three night and paid extra to upgrade our room, what amazes me is that they don't seem to have any standards. The hotel is very dated and they just don't see it. Cleaning standards are poor. I am told this is just what to expect here in Vietnam but don't see why we should. The bedding was not white and the damp marks on the walls appealing but just seems to be the normal. Don't stay here you will be disappointed
Room was horrible, not well maintained, A/C wasn't working well, CPU was spoilt, don't even know why there is 2 safe in the cupboard when 1 of it is spoilt. Really disappointed with the hotel. The staffs were unfriendly, unhelpful and some couldn't speak english. Breakfast spread was a shocker, no proper "labels" to tell you what is what. Asked for 2 sets of scrambled eggs but i got 2 sunny side ups instead. Although the location wasn't that bad, i wouldn't recommend this hotel. There are much better hotels with the same price range around the area.
Hotel is a nice location. Room was clean and looks nice. Bed in my room (VIP5) was advertised as a King size, but was queen sized. Wireless Internet speed was fine. The air conditioner was ineffective. The bellboy maxed it, and yet the room was barely cool. Good thing the power controller for the room was not an RFID unit and accepted a old hotel card so I left the AirCon on 24 hrs a day. Woke up in the morning and the staff shut off power to the room... I use a CPAP to sleep and woke up gasping for air. The closet had 2 safes, one was broken, the working safe was not bolted down. There were just 2-3 English TV channels and zero news channels. The most negative issue I had was the ants. Small ants were on the nightstand, toilet, sink, tables everywhere!!!
Found a lot of mosquitos inside the room, broke my night, could not sleep well. Breakfast was nothing new compared to years ago. Boring. Frontliners are not smiling at all when receiving me and my key.
With Saigon having an over abundance of hotels to choose from, White hotel wasnt much different than relative choices but overall I was happy and would recommend to others for a short stay. Good -Fantastic location. this reason solely keeps White Hotel on top tier for options (pricewise it is relevant to many other options nearby) -White theme and decor keeps the room looking nice -Staff (bellmen and maids) were more than friendly. They were helpful and smiling. good job -They were quick to resolve a few small issues which I really appreciate -Breakfast was not bad at all for FREE -Pillows were comfortable and soft Opportunities -VIP room has a bath tub but to take an actual shower, there is nothing to hold the shower head. I have to hold with one hand while bathing myself with 1 hand -Air Con was a bit strange. Cold then warm consistently. I had to turn on/off several times during my stay -My room was next to another room where guests were smoking. and aroma just leaked thru and was quite annoying
The hotel was located in the center of district 1 with a walking distance of around 5 minutes to get in most of the tourist spots area like the Saigon Cathedral, Post Office and Reunification Palace. It is a 2 minutes walk in the Bhen Than market. However the receptionist in the hotel was unfriendly and unapproachable, she gave us the smoking room even though we requested ahead of time that we wanted a non-smoking room. There are better 3 star hotel around the area, so save your money for that rather to book this hotel.
When arrived air condition didn't work well. After complain they gave me another room. Breakfast wasn't good. Old conditions in the hotel, the photos are not the reality conditions. Only good thing is in District 1 and near Ben Than Market. Pay more and don't stay here!!!
We cancelled our previous booking at some other hotel & moved here hoping that it would be a better one than our previous hotel but.. Upon arrival, its true that the lady at the counter takes a while to look up & acknowledge our presence. Not a friendly approach and can see all the staff including the housekeeping chill at the cafe lobby talking all out. I love the room theme, indeed all literally purely white. Definately better than my previous hotel which is worn out. Nice room layout design, comfy bed, huge tv, basic amenities provided. Great location, 5mins walk from everything. During the night, I spotted lots of black ants crawling on the side table, tv desk, door frames, toilet sink & best part on our bed too. Yes its true that some reviews I read is about ants in their room. Overall, room is worth for the price we paid but might consider staying here unless you dont mind sleeping with ants on your bed crawling. Pls do something abt those ants The White! Its really not cool..
