I traveled to Vietnam & HCMC a couple times every year. Typically I stayed in Dist 1 and 3. My first time here in Dist 10 (local/non-tourist area). The hotel is clean & my room (senior luxury) was large with a set of sofa & coffee table. My only complaint is the bathtub. It is impossible to take a shower without the water dripping/running everywhere onto the floor. There is no shower curtain and the partial glass screen does not help. The breakfast in the morning is adequate, nothing to fancy. It will get you full and ready for the day however. There is no swimming pool and there may be a small gym on the first floor (I think). There is a Big C supermarket next door that sells everything. The area has numerous restaurants, but catered mainly to locals. There is the new beautiful SVH Mall about a mile away. It's worth checking out - I just walked there a couple times. As far as tourist attractions, if it's your first time in HCMC, stay in Dist 1 or 3. Stay here if you want to get a feel of locals daily life pace. During my stay, there were a couple large tour groups of Chinese and Koreans. Overall, a very good clean hotel for the price. It is a bit far from the tourist areas however.
