In what was in every other way an excellent stay I was amazed, at check-out, to be charged for the bottled water. I have stayed in a large number of hotels in SE Asia and this was a "first".,All other hotels provide 2 bottles of complementary water daily because the tap water is not ""pottable" i.e undrinkable. I was told...

This family run hotel is about 6 years old. I have stayed there since it opened, originally I believe as a 2 star. Breakfast is basic but ask for Pho soup, which is not obviously available, delicious:) The staff are always courteous, friendly and will do anything to help. They are not really a tourist hotel with little knowledge of...

Cute little boutique hotel, very typical of the Saigon style of boutique hotels. Nice big room with a spa and firm and comfy bed. The staff were mostly friendly and there is one dedicated English speaker on duty at all times. The location is a little further from Ben Thanh (though still walking distance) and central shopping district - that...

Stayed three nights here and was happy. Hotel is located within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. Breakfast is nothing to write home about, but is adequate. There are at least two coffee places just down the road to have an alternate breakfast. Wifi is great and up at all times. Staff is friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for about a week in July. The location was very good, the deluxe room was large enough, clean, and had a nice view. But the breakfast was terrible, I personally did not know what to eat and only ate boiled egg and drank tea. Everything else looked like they were there for days and did not look...

Sophia I have stayed at this hotel 4 times now and I have decided not to return. The reason I went back was overall they are not too bad but after staying in some other hotels in vietnam I realise they are way overpriced for what they provide. Breakfast is included with all rooms and it has always been bland...

Stayed here for 4 nights as a solo traveler in the city. The taxi ride to the hotel from the airport didn't make for a good start as the driver misheard me, taking me to the 'Sofitel' hotel instead which wasn't that far from the Sophia hotel anyway. The reception staff were cordial and attentive, even hauling a room safe...
