Worth a stay!”

Hotel is located at the corner of Tan-da road, so it is easy to find. A little far from downtown but I love this hotel. Its decoration and architecture remind me of the period of French colonialism in Vietnam and made me feel nostalgic about the good old days. Personally, I don't like the very modern-style hotel, so Arc-en-ciel is my choice. Price is reasonable and affordable. Room service is great. Although staff for room service can speak limited English, you just tell him the room number through phone then someone will pick up order in your room. Wake-up call is on time. Unbelievable, what is surprising is breakfast here is a lot better than other 3-star hotels i HCMC!!!! Quality of food is great and edible for foreigners while Chiefs are also nice and friendly. All receptionists are willing to help you though rarely see them smile (i don't take this serious)

Me and my girlfriend was so pleased with our 2 night stay at the hotel. Staff at the front desk were very helpful and very nice. They were so patient to even advise us and guide us on how to go to places. Hotel room was quite small but more than enough for someone who needs a very comfortable and relaxing place to rest. Toilet and bath was very clean...this I am really amazed, no sign of dust at all! I will definitely stay in this hotel again on my next visit to Ho Chi Minh...

Well managed three-star hotel in district 5”

well manage; professtional staff; some speak decent Mandarin and/or Cantonese

i spent several nights at this hotel during the 2012 chinese new year festival and was generally happy with the stay. i would consider this hotel again in the future if the area (district 5) happens to be my destination. here is some detail. - it looked like management was committed to doing a good job. staff members were well trained. everyone i encountered was helpful and polite. on the new year eve, all guests were invited to a midnight free buffet party on the hotel's top floor to celebrate the new year. - for the chinese speaking guests, some front desk staff speaks mandarin and cantonese. - the hotel restaurants serve good (but not great) food with reasonable prices. there are also quite a few decent restaurants around the hotel and plenty of street food available nearby. - the room is clean, but spartan. the bathroom is functioning but lack of modern amenities (like stone counter top, etc.), and the decor is unattractive. - in-room wiki connects well. - breakfast is good! there are plenty of food choices (both western and asian styles) and most of them are tasty. tip: some times the hotel also hosts organized group tours. when you see group tours present, make sure you come down to eat your breakfast early (before the tours eat), or else you will be facing mostly empty trays.

Hotel with good location in district 5(Chinatown)”

Friendly n helpful staffs

On the day when I check-in on Arc En Ciel hotel,I was quite impress that the lobby was quite big n bright. The two male front desk staffs are very willing to help us as we arrived at the hotel quite early around 10.30am.They told us to have our meal while the room was being clean up. I was impressed by the male staffs as they advised us the ways to keep our valuable belonging when we go out shopping in Ho chi Minh city.However the hotel room need to refurnish as it look old.my superior room was not quite spacious and the window curtains was dusty.I will check-in this hotel if I go travel in Ho Chii Minh again as the male staffs are always ready to help and serve you whenever you ask them.

Hotel in heart of the city, real daily life ”

Most local or Asian guests, very good service and pretty rooms.

The heart of the city, Saigon, is not in the expensive, touristic area of District one, but in the neighbourhood of this hotel, so called Cholon.Good restaurants, café's, shops are around, with still the typical way of Saigonese family life in the streets. The hotel is newly renovated, very friendly services by the hotel staff. Just the breakfast place, opposite the hotel,isn't so nice, too crowded. The hotel itself is surely a place to return.
