Pleasant Hotel

The Bed, Friendly Staff , Close to Nighlife
I has a short stay but found the staff to be very nice . The doorman and night receptionist very good. They arranged taxi for me to go to night life and also back to airport. Only problem was when I returned to hotel that night the card reader for electricity supply to room did not work and took about 1 hour before anyone could move me rooms. They had to seek permission from a manager who was not on site. Staff were good so not really made an issue out of it. By the way ... first to travel to HCM and got ripped of by airport private taxi . I was charge 400 000d plus 100 000 exit fee from airport. The hotel booked me a taxi back to airport and cost 170 000. Next I go to the authorized taxi stand

Empress Hotel

Staff, Room & Location
Everything was great. The only issue was the reception area was under construction meaning there was a bit of jack hammer noise but luckily mostly while we were out & about. There was an issue with Wifi when we checked in & thankfully the staff rectified the situation beautifully.
