Stayed 3 nights here on arrival in Saigon at the start of our holidays. We were a little concerned as on previous reviews they were having building work done, we didn't need to worry as when we arrived all the work had been completed and it was lovely, very clean and new reception, helpful staff. Our room was massive, basic...

We spent 6 nights at the Elegant Inn, which has been renamed Cozy House. We had to fight to get the breakfast we'd paid for in advance, which is no longer offered where we were staying. Thankfully, the free breakfast was offered at another nearby Cozy House location. Our superior double room was clean, spacious and comfortable. We appreciated the...

I stayed in early January 2017, They were still very much renovating and didn't look anywhere near finished. Anywhere else in the world would have closed its doors and not allowed guests to stay in this environment. The entire hotel was full of paint dust, the lobby entrance had workers with jack hammers or band saws and all sorts of...

I made a private booking for 1-5th February 2017 (booked in September 2016), as we had been recommended this hotel. I received not only a booking confirmation, but an email from the manager confirming my booking and an upgrade, as it had taken 3 emails to get a response about an issue I needed verified. It was shear luck that...

It's all a bit chaotic whilst renovation works go on but the staff are very nice polite helpful and apologetic could imagine review will be 4 or 5 star once everything is complete.

It was a basic room, which I don't mind because it was really cheap, but the towels were off-white (looked like they had originally been...
