          It was one of the best hotel I stayed up to now”

          The ladies at front desks were so polite and helpful. They answer to all my questions and guide me to see the whole city. One of them helped me to book the cheap airfare to Hanoi and translate the website for me . I enjoyed staying over there . I really recommend this hotel to anyone who want to be at central. Very good breakfast and the staff never said no to me.

          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

          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.

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!
