  • 6.0.Good

    Hotel staff were friendly and assisted with all our needs, no issues with wifi. We were given a dark room, with a window facing a concrete wall which made the room feel like a bunker. The location is great if you are going to the airport next day as it is only 10 minutes away however if you like to wonder we would recommend staying in District 1 as not much to do in Hotel vicinity.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We only stayed one night, but it's super close to the airport, staff were lovely, room was clean and comfortable. If you're staying in Ho Chi Minh longer, probably look for something closer to town but if you want to be close to the airport for a quick trip, this hotel was lovely. It's not too far out, we walked into to town in 45 mins and would be a quick taxi. The aircon in the room could have been better but otherwise it was clean and spacious.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The property was great and on a back alley. The cafe was Closed for some reason and the only negative point is they hadn’t called the taxi for the next morning ride to the airport and We were 15 min late but it all worked out. They did put us in a suite and packed us a “brown bag” breakfast to take with us to the airport which I thought was really nice. The hotel is very quaint and beautiful architecture. I would definitely stay here again.

    It's tranquil but a bit too out of the way in the suburban areas. My parents got lost trying to find the way when they went for a early morning walk

    Good boutique property. Very little amenities. Didn't receive any indication of Expedia vip benefits. None offered. Good price for stay, nice clean hotel.
