Spectacular hotel”

One of the best hotel that i ever stayed in hochiminh city, Not in district 1 but close enough that you can get grab to district 1 for very cheap. You’d also see more local restaurant/ coffee shop here that wont charge an arm and a leg for it. Great price for such an awesome hotel. Super duper clean and spacious. Staff very friendly and helpful. Hopefully they can keep the way it is for many years to come. I’d totally stay here again the next time i go to hochiminh city

This is best hotel in HCM city. It is very closed to District 1. I stayed with my family for a week and honestly I am so happy we found this place. The receptionists team is very helpful, friendly and professional. We felt special from the beginning to the end. The room was lovely, super clean with most comfortable bed I have ever slept on and bathroom with shower very clean. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

good location, good room, quiet, helpful staff”

Stayed here my 3rd week of business travel. I was pretty burned out and so did not feel like exploring HCMC. staff are very helpful, and if you stay in the studio apartment you get a kitchenette (ask for dishes etc). I often ate in the coffee shop, the beef soup was quite good. that said, if you aren't on your last legs explore the neighborhood lots of food options around.
