This hotel is in a great location for restaurants and bars but it is VERY noisy at night. It was an easy walk to Ben Thanh market and other popular sights in the city. The room was clean and an adequate size. The hot water wasn't very reliable at all. The beds were comfy enough and the air con very...

Great breakfast. Who needs the biggest, much publicised, overpriced, helicopter landing capability establishment to see HCMC (you know the one I mean)...

We stayed for 6 nights in November. From the moment my boys and I arrived the staff made our stay personable and incredible. The rooms, the recommendations then the bookings, the last minutes call to the tailor, the Vietnamese coffee, the motorcycle ride is only a wee bit of goodness the Merikai offers. Oh, the egg with noodles for breakfast...
