Our stay here met all of our expectations. The apartment was spacious and clean; maid service was provided each day. Because it was out of the city, it was extremely quiet, which was exactly as advertised and what we were looking for. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in our package, and we both enjoyed the food. We appreciated the free shuttle service into the city - either boat or bus. They were both prompt and efficient. Free use of the laundry facilities was a great bonus. I had read from earlier guests that tour guides would not pick up from District 2, but that was not the case with either of our tours. I would definitely recommend these apartments. Should we travel to Ho Chi Minh City in the future, we would stay here again.
We stayed 2 nights at Thao Dien Village. It was a really relaxing break during our time in Ho Chi Minh City. We enjoyed the pool, the beautiful building and eating meals by the river watching the boats go past.
There is not very much else to do in this neighbourhood (District 2 - home to many rich families and expats and some large international schools) but there is a shuttle once a day into downtown and the taxis are cheap. It takes approximately half an hour.
The hotel was a little quiet while we were there so eating dinner was a little strange without many other diners. I think on weekends the place is much busier since there is a water puppets show at the Vietnamese restaurant. The Italian restaurant has excellent food and the waiters speak better English than at the other on-site restaurants.
