AMAZING !!! From check in to check out 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ service. 1 minute walk to Ben Thanh Market. Centrally located to walk, scooter or cab all parts Ho Chi Minh. Good sized rooms, roof top pool with an incredible view of the city. Extensive/delicious Buffet breakfast, High Tea and mini bar are all included in your room rate. I could go on and on about the hotel amenities but the real gem in this place is the customer service. Everyone is so nice and helpful. I had a mishap with my phone and Mr. Max along with the rest of the Alagon staff helped me remedy the situation. Had I not had their help and patience I would have never been able to figure it all out. You can bet I will tell all I know who travel to Ho Chi Minh that Alagon Zen Hotel is where they should stay. From Mr. Max to Ms. Quinneth and the rest of the Alagon staff (unfortunately I did not get everybody’s names), THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU/ cảm ơn bạn, cảm ơn bạn, cảm ơn bạn.

Great location, excellent service”

We were happy with our stay at Alagon Zen Hotel & Spa. The hotel is well located within Ho Chi Minh city, and we were able to walk to most attractions easily. The staff were very polite and provided great service. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel had a sauna, steam room and jaccuzi available for all guests, which makes it a good choice for relaxation. The only suggestion for improvement is to install shower curtain in the bathroom so that the floor outside of the bath tub can be less wet.

Exceptional Service and Facilities”

I stayed in 5 hotels in Ho Chi Minh City and this one was the most fabulous one in terms of decoration, service and overall facilities. Everything is done with love for details. Free afternoon tea is served from 15:00 - 17:00. And it's not only tea, but a whole selection of tasty cakes and kind of dim sum. Breakfast is tasty as well and far above average for a 4 star hotel. There is a rooftop terrace with bar, pool, sauna and steam room. The steam room has a big window direction west, making it very special at sunset. The pools are rather small but big enough for a cool down after a city trip. Staff is very attentive and professional. Especially Dais and Max at reception. And a very big thank you to Ali, the butler at the entrance taking care of everything even before you enter the hotel. I had to box a bicycle and Ali helped me with tools and whatever was needed to do the job... and it was great fun to do it with him together :-) Number one!

Zen is Great!!!”

Great Hotel! i have stayed at Alagon properties before. This is the best of them so far! Great price and great concept. All the floors have exotic spa like atmosphere. The roof top because of size limitation have a three jacquzzi concept where each jacuzzi has different water temperature. But the small size is made up for by the cozy, comfortable atmosphere and the jacuzzi bar tops it off of couse.! The only reason i have four stars to the location is it is not in the center of district 1 but it is still good because it is right next to the Binh Than market and only 10 minute walk to the cathedral, post office, and opera house. And four stars for facilities only because the small size of the hotel. Maybe alagon will use the Zen's concept for larger properites in future. Now that would be awesome!! Great place. You wont regret it!

Excellent service and great location! ”

We totally enjoyed our stay at Alagon Zen, they have an amazing roof top pool, bar and spa as well as gym. Breakfast was always nice and fresh, afternoon tea was an added bonus for us along with the free minibar. They are conveniently located within walking distance to most places within the heart of the city and our no window room was perfect with no road noise. The staff were extremely helpful and accomodating for our needs, on our last day they stored our bags after we had checked out and even let us have a shower after our tour in the evening. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and are very responsive to your needs. Keep up the good work guys.

Great boutique hotel”

My husband and I spent his birthday weekend at the Alagon Zen and it was spectacular. Check in and out was a breeze with Quinn, and all of the staff we encountered were fantastic. We chose one of the windowless rooms since we have a hard time sleeping with light coming in the room and contrary to some reviews I have seen, the room was a perfectly good size and was extremely comfortable. Free minibar was stocked everyday and housekeeping did a fabulous job. The rooftop pool is small, but a fun place to hang out and I'm just disappointed that I did not take the time to use the sauna or steam room. Great cocktails at the bar on the roof as well. Only negative that I noticed was breakfast seemed a bit understaffed, but it wasn't a major issue. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Peaceful luxury in city centre”

Alagon Zen has a boutique hotel feel and a restful atmosphere, with dim lighting, water features and spa aromas everywhere. Lovely rooftop pool/spa, with both heated and non heated parts. Bed was comfortable and staff very kind, letting us check in early at no extra charge. Only disappointment was the fitness centre which is very small and open air - just a couple of cardio machines and a few dumbbells really. Would have liked to see something a bit bigger, and with aircon.

The room is very spacious too. Daily morning breakfast buffet is well thought and has a diversed menu. We love the afternoon tea and the fuits and tart presentation. Staff were all so polite and very easy to talk to. Location is very very good. Special mention to staff Concierge "ALI" who made our stay more comfortable with his big smile and happy attitude, always looking after our safety each time we go out. The hotel is small but the amenities such as swimming pool sauna and gym is more than a big old hotel can give . We will stay again with them next time we pay ho chi minh a visit!

2nd stay at the Alagon zen. Our bed wasn't as soft or big as our previous stay (we had 2 singles flushed together the last time), but the pillows were soft and cushy as before. The housekeeping staff was cheerful and kind as always. Breakfast has a good and tasty range, if a little repetitive from day to day. Complimentary afternoon tea set. Fantastic location in district 1, but take note of the 1-way roads if you're travelling by car. Would definitely stay again

In addition, we were pleasantly surprised at the complimentary tea time offered that not only provided tasty snacks but included live entertainment.
