Efficient and thoughtful staff
I had to stay over for one night to fly out to Hanoi the next day very early in the morning. Breakfast was not served at that time but staff ensured that they had prepared this in advance. Impressed with their considerate and efficient approached

Lovely Design
Nice Design Hotel. Near to airport so best for first or last night in Saigon. Evening food was OK not amazing. Some interesting cafes around like fig and tram, but not so much else to do in the area so just one night is best. Very friendly staff especially the bell boy and the girls behind the desk. I expected this place to have more toiletries as it seems quite "girly" but they only have 2 big basic bottles a shampoo and a shower gel only no separate conditioner or body lotion like most hotels these days. I had sunburn and wanted some body lotion but they do not have anything. Overall very pleasant and relaxing stay.

Beautiful, wonderful staffs and clean
It is a perfect place for relaxation and quiet time if you want to get away from the busy town. The room is very clean and the bed is so comfortable. The staffs are very helpful and willing to assist whenever you need any assistance. However due to the distance, we have to take a cab to get to town for food and coffee since there are not much choice of food around the area. The free shuttle provided to the town is only available once a day. It will be great if you can improve on this. Overall, we do enjoy our one night stay there.
