Hotel's Favourite
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a staycation or for out of town guests. I had previously only been here for a meal and thought it was fantastic then. Staying here for Christmas surpassed my expectations. The room was brilliant, the room decor was tasteful, the bed and pillows so so comfortable, the shower was super hot and bathroom facilities and amenities were excellent. Staff service was best I have had in HCMC. All staff were courteous and exceptionally professional. Checking and checking out was a breeze. Christmas lunch was simply wonderful.

The hotel is beautiful on the outside. Lobby is nice too. Staff are nice. However, the lobby has a very noticeable odor like old cooking that has accumulated. The room was basic, looks like basic a holiday inn room in the US, small and dark. The drain in the shower did not drain. Surrounding neighbor is quiet and has a couple cute local coffee shops. I stayed for one night and didn’t care to extend.

Room was spacious with full amenities, nice view, nice swimming pool and gym. Staff was very helpful, we asked for ice at night for drinking and they still supported. Breakfast was not included when we book so we would have to pay if wanna eat, but it’s fine since VN got nice food outside.
