This hotel was a little hidden but exactly what we wanted. It was close to the airport and provides transport to the airport which is sure helpful. The hotel is BEAUTIFUL and I could have sat in the lobby all day looking at books. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the breakfast was amazing and the staff was friendly. The hotel is a little way from the main part of the city but a taxi makes it easy to get there or if you want to walk, which we did, wasn't that bad and you see a lot while walking. Totally recommend this gem.

The staff were friendly and made sure we had everything we needed for the stay. The room was clean and comfortable, and the bed was comfy. Being off the main street meant we didn't have a noisy stay. The restaurant also had some wonderful food and great local coffee, and we enjoyed sitting out on the restaurant balcony with a few beers watching the neighbourhood monkeys get up to some mischief.

I stayed for 2 night and this hotel was a perfect oasis from the bustle of HCM. 10 mins from the airport and 15min on a vespa into the city (taxi would take 45mins due to traffic).Had breakfast and dinner here both very good, service was a bit patchy as were some of the hotel amenities (bit tired).

The hotel is only 15 minutes away from the airport. Although it can be little distanced from the main attraction, there are a lot of restaurants in walking distance. The room is little smaller than how I would like, but it is somewhat standard size in Ho Chi Minh for the price. The staff is great. The first time I stayed here, I had to check out early (4:30am) to catch a flight. Since I wasn't able to get the breakfast, they pack a breakfast (banana, yogurt, sandwich) in a bag and that was very thoughtful of them. I have stayed here twice since it is close to the airport and the inclusive-order-from-the-menu breakfast is DELICIOUS. It is not your typical hotel buffet breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a fantastic hotel that I would recommend anyone staying at. The room was massive and the facilities in the room top class. It is located in a nice quiet area with an interesting view of part of the city.

There is a restaurant on the top floor of the hotel (they also serve the breakfast on this floor). The food is delicious and the prices reasonable.

The hotel offered a mini-bus service from the airport.

For the price that I paid this hotel was very well worth it.
