                                Nice location right in the center of Ho Chi Mihn City, the staff at the reception was very welcomming. And the room was well maintained.

                                Instead of ordering a taxi for us as requested the concierge asked the security guards to stop a taxi for us - they stopped some crappy taxi with a rigged meter and we had to argue with the driver - the only unplesant experience during our trip.

                                Location is excellent,staff are very friendly.

                                the swimming pool is not 5 star, breakfast is 4 star.

                                I booked through Booked.net, but there was no reservation for me when I arrived. When I did get a room it was very poor and nothing like the hotel description, certainly not deluxe.

                                The booking service and the room.

                                Tried tol fob us off with a room with no window when we had booked a junior suite with balcony. We insisted on room we had booked and were told we were being given an upgrade. This was a lie as the room we were given was identical to our friends room who had also booked a junior suite. Found renovation a problem as there was a constant small of paint thinners on the passageway to our room which did not help husband who has a lung problem

                                How extremely well we were looked after by all hotel staff. Nothing was too much touble for them.

                                Probably found that the hotel was a litle like a maze a litle bit all over the place, but no doubt with your extensions this will all be addressed in the long term. A lot of stairs especially around pool areas.

                                Stayed at the new wing because I heard a lot of problem with the trafic noise if you stay at the old wing of the hotel.Spacious room. The breakfast was OK. Good location. You are closed to Opera house, Ben Thanh market ect.

                                could be more varities of the breakfast for a 5 stars hotel.

                                Friendly staff and convenient and central location. Roof top bar is also very nice place to relax and unwind.

                                I couldn ot get an iron and iron board to be sent to my room; the noise from renovation.

                                Good breakfast and rooftop bar. Rooms in the new wing are good.

                                When we arrived they tried to put us into a room different to the one we booked and charge more than we had agreed to pay. The staff were helpful in sorting it out. The rooms in the old wing are very depressing.

                                When I asked hotel stuff to pick up taxi, price was more than double...almost triple price with normal fee. This coment was on bookin.com. Yes. I agree.

                                The bufet breakfast was good. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

                                Rooms insulation was not good esp. The junior suite,old wing, with no windows. Noises from the outside traffic was loud and disturbing esp. In the evening and early morning hours. Had to change room after 1 night. Air conditioning of corridors along the hotel rooms could better.

                                The hotel including the rooms smelled of damp.
