Comfort Room door lock needs to be repaired. When we came at around 1 oclock pm, the hotel is closed. accomodation was average. Buffet food during morning, their coffee was great though, location is good because of many restaurants around.

The hotel itself is pleasant enough. Made a booking through Agoda as website said pets allowed and I have a dog. It seems this was a mistake. Rather than deal with this professionally, they got agoda to update their website and called me a liar and asked me to check out. Disgusting customer service from rude liars. DO NOT STAY... More

This hotel is quite comfortable for me. Just like common building in Vietnam, it's a thin & tall building. It's located in the busy area of Ho Chi Minh City. The restaurant was nice and the breakfast was good enough.

The staff are very pleasant and smiley. However they have little experience with international travellers. Check out is fixed at midday, making it very difficult if you are being picked up at 9pm at night for an international flight. We had to go through several levels of management before we were able to keep our room without paying a huge... More

Last night i stayed at this hotel. It was no good at all. The staff didn't speak english, the rooms are old and the airco didn't work. The bathroom looks like it is from the 70's and the shower is very low. There was a lot of noise from the city outside. I strongly advise you not to go.

We stayed here ar new years night. The next morning 8 o clock (new years day) they decided to reconstruct the rooms, the noise was horrible. The staff at the reception didnt speak english at all. The bathroom was very old and dirty. We decided to cancel the rest of the nights and found a new hotel.

The hotel is brimming with Chinese, Malaysians and other Asian families so if you are a Western traveller or holiday maker seeking friends this isn't the place to go. Although our stay was suitable for our time in Saigon as we had an action packed couple of days and rarely stayed in the hotel. Location; you are 20,000 Dong away... More

When the travel agent booked us into Universe just a couple of days before our departure for my first visit to Vietnam, I searched reviews for this hotel and was apprehensive enough to forewarn the agency that I would not hesitate to express my negative experiences about their hotel choice and travel arrangement. Surprisingly, the hotel did not disappoint me.... More
