Wonderful experience, stayed for 3 nights and it turns out to be the most luxurious self paid holiday ever. Hotel staff are all english speaking, which was a huge relief. Before you pop into one of the ever present line of vinasun (one of the metered taxi companies) cabs on site, just let the staff help to inform the driver of your destination.
Trust the tours they offer from the concierge, I've taken up a Cu Chi tunnel tour and thoroughly experienced the struggles of a waring nation, along with tourists of various nationalities. Guide named Tommy was awesome (is however not a staff of the hotel). Do send my regards if you meet him along the way.
Hotel room is grand and spacious, it will be made up twice a day, once in the noon when you are out exploring the hustling city of HCM, and once in the evening, where you are chilling out having your dinner elsewhere. A touch of attentiveness and the complimentary little chocolate bites at your bed side is always a sweet surprise.
The hotel spa is wonderfully affordable, coming from Singapore, I would never have had to fork out a spa experience from my own pocket, but yes, I gave it a go, and never looked back. My girlfriend and I took up a full course, facial + massage + food reflexology for 2.5 hours. I can only rate the 2.5 hours with the loudness of my snoring during my treatment.
All staff speak English very well and are so helpful. The hotel is beautiful and very conveniently located in district 1 which is very safe and full of great food, coffee shops and bakeries. The old French culture still lives in this beautiful area of the city and I will miss it.
Anyway, the hotel is a true gem. I will stay there again and again.
