Stayed here 2 nights on November. The location is good in district 1 and near the river. The staff is nice. The room I stayed in was quite dark even though I had the window. You could smell the mold when entering the room and there was humid stains on the wall. The room was out dated and the bed... More

We stayed 4 nights at the hotel and found the staff helpful and friendly. The rooms themselves are basic hotel rooms. Quite small but clean and well equipped. The travel staff were helpful and booked our trips for us which were all excellent if a bit expensive. We had been in the North of Vietnam where everything was incredibly cheap... More

We had a short stay here - two nights. The staff were helpful and friendly and the room beautiful - a Saigon River Suite. A few minuses: the biggest lack was the breakfast. Very limited, just a small selection of western eggy dishes, not particularly tasty, and a couple of Asian choices, no option for juice or water, and no... More

This lovely boutique hotel is ideally located within walking distance of most sites around the city. The room was comfortable and spacious, with a good shower and a small balcony. It felt like a typical city hotel. The staff were all very polite and helpful and were always pleased to recommend places to eat and shop. Walking around the city... More

Fun to be able thank choonkaloonks for your positive review, so maybe you managed a little quite time during your stay in one of the most frenetic cities you might find any where in the world.

This hotel was in a great location. Safe area. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. Walking distance to the opera house. Others complained about the wifi and when I first got there it wasn't working. However, I let the front desk know and they reset it. After that it worked the whole time for me. The wifi isn't the best... More

We stayed here 5 nights and loved the location and the staff. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean and roomy. It's an older building so a little quirky (small elevator that only goes to 5th floor) but we found it perfect for our needs. It's a mix of modern with some older features like high ceilings and...
