Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Coffs Harbour, Australia57 contributions19 helpful votes
Spent 3 nights in this Hotel in early February. It was comfortable, albeit rooms were small as was the bathroom. The issues we faced were that the exterior door to the small balcony could NOT be locked and there was only a low glass partition separating our room from the rooms on either side. It was a security issue when out of the room and when sleeping. The balcony is VERY SMALL you cant even fit a chair. Also the room safe was a joke as it just sat in the bottom of the cupboard and you could pick it up and carry it out the door. Breakfast was good except the juices were some reconstituted product not freshly squeezed. We were a little annoyed as we wanted to try their acclaimed seafood buffet for either lunch or dinner. However due to TET (Lunar New Year) the staff advised that it would not be held as there were no outside guests around to attend. In other words stuff the in-house guests. The only option whilst we were there was the in-house chinese restaurant everything else around was closed. The pool was nice but appeared to be a location where everyone wanted to take photos for their social media profiles. The pool does need maintenance as a lot of tiles are loose and falling off leaving many sharp edges. Overall the Hotel was ok for a couple of days but no more.

Iconic rooftop infinity pool overlooking the city, which was undoubtedly the highlight and main attraction for the hotel. Pros: - large rooftop pool with fantastic sunset views - good breakfast spread and gym facilities - hotel has a cinema, casino, and a lot of restaurants and activity around it (although it’s on a busy intersection so can get noisy) Cons: - biggest issues were the service, which felt more akin to a 3* than a 5*. Actually got pushed by a server at breakfast but it does get busy so maybe the team is overworked. - the warm foods in breakfast were often not even warm let alone hot. A lot of food waste - elevators are sloooow. Often waiting 4-7 minutes - tiny balcony and bathroom is all glass (it does have curtains) which isn’t ideal for non-couples

A good hotel with lots of plus points and only a few niggles. Some reviews say it has a good location, but it is on a big junction, so there is a lot of noise, and crossing roads can be a life-changing experience in Ho Chi Minh. Good - fantastic infinity pool on the top floor with bar alongside, lots of different choices at breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, Not so good - glass walled bathrooms, which means you are for ever drawing a curtain round it for privacy, the room was too small for the good sized bed - so no table or lights on one side, the "balcony" was so tiny you could hardly stand on it, let alone get a chair on it.

Had a great stay, loved the staff, super friendly, especially Chen, loved her honesty! Breakfast was not as organized as other 5 stars, but still okay. Rooftop pool was great and gym had at all. Would recommend this place, especially cause the price is 'cheap' for a 5 star!

This hotel is very very easy to get to. We took the 109 red bus from the airport to the bus stop 1/2 block from hotel same street 15 minutes at a cost of 60,000 VND for both of us including baggage. You don't need a taxi. The hotel staff were welcoming, professional and lovely. The hotel itself is interesting as it is very modern but we ran into issues in the rooms because the doors to the bathroom and shower recess open backwards making it difficult to enter them. But all was good. Breakfast is definitely 5 star and the best inclusion - do it. Views from the breakfast balcony were breathtaking. The infinity pool on the 27th floor is the best in HCMC with panoramic views of the city and at night it is magical. The only complaint we had was that although there was a children's pool some guests took their infant in diapers into the adult pool. No one said anything. This area serves food/liquor so we felt that the staff should be more mindful of adult needs. Also be aware the pool has day passes for people who are not staying at the hotel. There are few loungers but there are extensive seating areas that could accommodate loungers and be better utilized. To get around use taxi's but only the metered ones as the traffic is death defying and taxis are cheap. We at the Danger Zone across the street from the hotel food was okay but nothing special. We went to the Propaganda Restaurant which had a 5 star review on trip advisor and although the ambience was excellent the food was terrible and very very expensive. We would not recommend it. Do not miss going to Book Street which is next to Notre Dame Cathederal and the Post Office. We also went to the Reunification Palace but felt that it each room was so similar and not worth the money. But the history is interesting. We walked to many places but be careful of GPS as it sent us on a few wild goose chases. The hop on hop off bus we did not do but may be the way to go. We went to the Botanical Gardens which has a zoo and an amusement park for kids attached. The zoo was very hard to see as the animals are in very small cages and some obviously distressed. The amusement part of the gardens is very old and seemed poorly maintained. It cost to go in and the botanical gardens are poor and very small. Would not recommend. The Vietnamese Museum is at the same place with a separate fee to enter but be aware they close from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm each day. The HCMC airport does not have a lot of places to eat or areas where you can relax while waiting for your flight. The Ben Thanh Market is worth a look see.
