        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.

        Nice modern hotel. Nice bathroom. Small rooms”
        Newly renovated. Clean rooms
        The hotel is in a reasonably good location. Few minutes walk to nearby restaurants and nightlife. The rooms are just completely renovated and the bathrooms are very nice. The only problem is that we booked standard rooms and they were extremely small. My room had no window and the air con unit struggled to keep the air fresh. I paid extra for a deluxe room on the third night which was a bit better. The staff were very friendly and welcoming to us and were a great help to us. We didn't eat breakfast so can't comment on that. I would stay there again no problem but would definitely pay a little more for the deluxe

        Great location, helpful staff, nice big room
        The room was big and comfortable, well designed and a pleasure to stay in. The staff were very helpful with everything I needed, and the location is great; within walking distance to markets, bars/restaurants, sightseeing, but further enough out from the main action to be a bit quieter. Great place to stay!

        The rooms were small but cosy, good location and plenty of dining places
        The hotel facade is decent and so are the rooms within. The decor is a little old, but the hotel has excellent service and English speaking staff. The hotel restaurant serves pretty decent Vietnamese or western food, and there are plenty of street stalls in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. Rooms come with all toiletries and essentials, and room service seems excellent. Fully carpeted and air-conditioned interior. Highly recommended as it is within walking distance to Ben thanh market and city centre.

        Good look
        little bit pricier
        I've always enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff are friendly, the rooms are pleasant and well equipped, and it's in a location that's not too far from the centre of the city. The only problem is that the single room is jam packed with tables, a bed and a chair, in a room approximately 2x2 metres. But if you are looking for a comfortable place to stay, this is the one.

        Value for money, the staff were very friendly and eager to help out. The location is very convienent close to shopping area and downtown. Hotel is clean where the bath room is superbly clean without any trace of mold. This is definitely the cheapest 3 star hotelper night in the general area. For those hotel near the market, a 3 star hotel. Good Price the hotel is worth more.

        Is there any notice on their interior construction schedule or issues that need to be informed to customer? It was under construction (very bad dust and dirt that results from it), unable to use the WIFI at room, unable to take the shower at night during 1H30M due to their construction. I never got the bad experience like this before from any of hotel booked by Agoda. Tooooooooo much disappointed! It was not a big money but really want to get the money back from this lousy hotel.

        Located at the less crowded area of District 1. So, you could have a comfortable stay with local attractions are within walking distance. Taxis were abundance and I have no problem stopping one. Only around 10 minutes walk from the famous Ben Thanh market. Many amenities around for a traveller (ie convenient stores, cafés, restaurants, hospital and even a local supermarket is only a 5 minutes walk!). A nice park was only a 3 or 4 minutes walk. I will definitely return in my next HCM trip.

        room key is unique. nothing else fanciful
        i've been to hcmc numerous times and checked into lots of hotels (check my previous reviews) but i must say this has been the worst hotel i have to review! first of all, i have been able to check into hotels with my significant other with no hassle but this hotel demands a separate room to be booked so that my gf would be able to stay legally (apparently this was not mentioned during booking of the hotel with agoda). i paid an additional n requested for the additional room key but was not given because its just a false front for the authority?! secondly, the 1st room provided had an airplane turbo for aircon, second room that i settled with had a shower with thermostat that either has northpole or sun temperature setting with nothing in the middle. the bed was creaking louder than a rocking chair and i can hear the conversation of occupants upstairs clearly! thirdly, the breakfast was pathetic mix of harden bread and semi-cold eggs. fourthly, the free bottled mineral water was only provided for 1day. future occupants, please be aware that there is nil housekeeping staff (or rather service) at night even if it just means that you request for a bottled drink. do not expect hotel standard or whichever star standard that is claimed

        After a week at the beach, this was a nice, old fashioned, but renovated house with a comfortable room. Staff - outside the restaurant, that is - was friendly, attentive, spoke English well(and some German) and were rather uncomplicated in all matters. Excellent stay for practically no money. Oh, and when they screwed up, they admitted it instantly and fixed the problem. Well done, good attitude!
