As a frequent Ho Chi Minh City visitor I don't get why this hotel has this high rating on Tripadvisor. My wife booked this hotel for me because it was relatively close to the airport and they could offer me a room for 9 hours to relax before my inter-contental evening flight. I don't know any good to tell about this hotel except the quiet location and the good knowledge of English of the manager and the personnel. The bad: 1)location: the hotel can't be reached by taxi because it is located in a back alley, the main road is extremely busy and cars can't hardly move forward in rush hour so don't expect to save time to the airport and forget a nice walk here. District 1 is a so much nicer location to stay. Don't expect to get quickly in District 1 by taxi from this hotel 2) the hotel: has an open style and no elevator so if your room is on the 4th floor... 3) the room: my room was very small and had a sliding door with an OPENING OF 3 CM SO PEOPLE COULD SEE ME IN MY BED FROM THE HALLWAY (See picture), it took the airco hours to cool-down the room to a pleasant level 4) the staff: overfriendly and pushy what felt very uncomfortable and respect-less, every step I made they asked me where I was going, when I asked for a good Vinasun taxi to the airport they imposed a cheaper tax,I had to pay the room at check-in... This hotel was a big disappointment and as a frequent Ho Chi Minh City visitor (3 times a year) I will never book this one again.
