Another luxurious hotel. The entrance is grand, our room was OK but the view was ordinary. The pool was inviting in the heat and it had a swim up bar to enjoy your daily complimentary cocktail. The buffet breakfast and restaurant was just amazing, wonderful array of food. We had complimentary high tea which was ordinary in comparison. The location...

Recently I stayed again at the hotel for one night. I can only say the superlatives about the hotel. I arrived at the hotel quite late due to flight delay. A...

Everything about this hotel is pure luxury. The room was absolutely amazing with beautiful views and comfortable furniture. I was extremely impressed with our stay here. The food was presented well and was top-quality. The hotel is also located in an ideal area with easy access to taxis and shops.

Stayed at Equatorial for a couple of nights. Stay began well with a lovely man picking us up from the airport. We were well looked after the whole time! The breakfast buffet served an array of delicious food. Staff were very friendly and helpful - helping us find tailors and hairdressers which were very good recommendations. Wonderful facilities and staff....

We were upgraded to a Premier Room upon arrival, which was a nice surprise. The room was big which was good, as we had a rollaway bed for our 7 year old in there as well as a kingsize. The facilities were all good and the Orientica Restaurant does a lovely degustation. A typical kind of buffet breakfast was included...

Ho Chi Minh City is full of places to stay but if you want a truly international quality experience then I recommend the Hotel Equatorial. We upgraded our room which was inexpensive but really worthwhile because it gave us more space plus a small balcony which was terrific for seeing the lights at night.
