Booked as part of a package, for a first visit to Ho Chi Minh this was far too brief. After the culture shock of just the drive from the airport, the hotel felt like an oasis or sanctuary. Good service, efficient and welcoming. The room was good, view of the pleasant pool area. Bed very comfortable, and room lovely and...

The hotel is situated up in the Chinatown area so you do need to take a 10-15 minute cab ride to get downtown. The whole hotel is quite smart, friendly helpful staff, good sized bedrooms and a decent open air swimming pool on the 4th floor. The breakfast catered for all tastes so little problem there. The cafe was also...
