We flew in late at night and the driver waited for us whilst our visas took ages, we were very greatful! Just a quick drive to the hotel and we settled into a nice clean and comfy room. Breakfast was very Vietnamese, so if you are someone who prefers a western breakfast then you may struggle here. Other than that...

Dear Amy Thank you for your comment on Trip Advisor. About our buffet breakfast, I will drive this attention to our Chef for consideration. But actually, we have served American breakfast for years. Hope that we will have chances to welcome you back another time, and we can meet each other face to face to get more advice from you...

We elected to upgrade to a suite and it was well worth it. The room was comfortable with great AC and a nice seating area. The staff were kind and helpful and it made the trip. The breakfast was good but I must admit the smells of asian cooking the first thing in the morning was a bit overwhelming.

We booked this hotel for a stopover at HCM airport due to its proximity and reviews. The Hotel and the staff were fantastic. Our flight was delayed, so we were greeted at the arrivals and ushered to a taxi. The driver knew where to go and the hotel paid for it on our arrival. Cars doors were opened, luggage carried...

This is an ideal hotel if you are taking another flight the next day. Transfers to and from the airport are included in your booking and this can be a relief rather than negotiating the crazy traffic in Vietnam for the first time. Rooms are nice although the noise from the air-conditioning could wake the dead and a good breakfast...

For just one night if you have an early connection and want to be close to airport this is a good choice. This was one of the nicer hotel rooms I had over my 15 nights away. This is an unusual set up for a hotel and spread over two sides of the road. There is a choice of four...

The hotel is a bit ordinary even in the new wing. Its the staff that keep us coming back.

If you want to stay nearby Tan San Nhat airport, the hotel is the good choice. With the large car parking area surrounding with small park and complex of restaurant, swimming pool and big building for conference/ wedding, it is the best choice for group of friends to stay there. The rooms are quite large, clean with good service. The...

Despite our flight being delayed we were warmly greeted by a representative of the hotel. We were driven to the hotel in a new Mercedes car.
