We are currently staying here and we feel fantastic! The room is very nice, with modern amenities and a fantastic bed. The gym and pool is wonderful and the restaurant was brilliant. The staff speak English very well and are very helpful. I highly recommend staying at this hotel.

We were on a family holiday, and this was our base for the Ho Chi Minh leg. Its very big and has the feel of a corporate business hotel, rather than a holiday base.

I can't even describe how disappointed I am about this hotel. My family got 2 appetizers and 4 drinks and all together it was $ 75.00 USD. It is over priced and there are stains on the ground.

I am currently at the caravelle hotel and I am more than disappointed. This hotel is certainly not a 5 star hotel. It is maybe a 3 star.

I wasn't sure what to expect as we booked the double deluxe room for $100 a night including breakfast. But we needn't have worried as the hotel was possibly one of the best we have ever stayed in - especially for the price we paid.
