Really wanted to give 10/10
A very charming little hotel down a quiet back street in Ho Chi Minh city which lived up to the pictures, but left a bit to be desired in service! It was stunning inside with lots of thoughtful interior design touches and well laid out rooms which were perfect aside from a dodgy TV signal and the staff provided a very friendly, but sadly ineffective service. For example, the rooms say the are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, but you have to call down to reception to receive this, which we did. Thirty minutes after the first call nothing had materialised, so we called again to ask where it had gotten to, and then received a kettle. Another 45 minutes later a third call finally resulted in the tea and coffee but no milk, so a further call and another fifteen minutes passed until we could make a cup of tea. There was also a 10 minute gap between mine and my partners room service meals which was quite strange, and when we ate in the hotel restaurant, which served lovely food, it took over 20 minutes for us to get the bill despite the fact that we were the only people in there. I really wanted to give this hotel 10/10 for its value for money, great food and overall charm, but sadly the friendly but nonetheless poor service really let it down.

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.

Loved the book think and felt totally comfortable in this hotel.
Great breakfast, clean room, great theme. Not in the typical tourist area, but still close to a lot.
