This hotel might be a bit impersonal because there always seems to be "something going on" in terms of conferences, weddings and so forth, but it is very good nevertheless. Rooms are standard 4 or 5 star hotel, nothing specially really, but the hotel amenities are very good. The gym is excellent, but the jackpot is really the outside pool area. I was there during the Saigon Pool Party, which was a bonus if you're in your 20s, 30s, or 40s, or perhaps even older, who knows.
One embarrassing bit, for them was that I wandered in with my long-time girlfriend who is Asian (but not Vietnamese) and we were asked by security to go to the reception to get a "pass"... we're pretty calm but I assume some people in a similar situation would get rather upset.
We stayed in a premium room and we loved it. The premium room is worth the extra cost. I understand they do have cheaper rooms without windows, but is was not for us. Staff is outstanding and the breakfast is very good.
"Could not complain . Fanstastic staff and location"
rooms were a good standard nothing to scream home about but nothing to complain either.
location is fantastic and so are the staff. dont think we were once met by a non smiling face. they were always eager to help and nothing was ever a problem.
would definitly use again if in the city and would recommend to friends
As the Hotel is in finishing stage,it was pure class,amazing breakfast and afternoon tea can be had..We had the junior suite which was our best room so far on our trip,perfect decor and the best real bed..The roof top pool,jacuzzi and bar are spot on,even with a happy hour and great views of the city..The staff are very welcoming and helpful to all your needs,I highly recommend this hotel to anyone(prices will increase as its complete soon)
From shuttle pick up, check in and check out. We were never disappointed, staff through out the hotel were wonderful. The location is amazing. Breakfast is not to be missed! Yummy, lots of options. This hotel was fantastic! Thank you for making our stay so nice.
The staff are extremely helpful. I checked in early they did not have my room ready but they did up grade for me to another room. Over all, I do think the staff made a big different for me stay at this hotel. It's right in the heart of Saigon but it's quiet. Come and stay and you'll see.
