Address:  7/9 Nguyen Trai District 1 – Ben Thanh Market/Ho Chi Minh City/Vietnam

PROS:
– both standard and superior rooms are well maintained; of course superior room is much bigger
– the morning shift attendants are friendlier and have initiative to offer maps, and discuss other things that we can do in the city
– you can book Mekong tours through the hotel
– a bit centrally located so it’s easy for us to go back to the hotel and rest for a while after touring the city or leave stuff after some shopping

CONS:
– hard to locate because it is not just along the street
– you have to go into an alley going to the hotel
– the night shift attendants are not so friendly
– the cooks/food servers hardly speak English so you really have to do your homework of learning a bit of the local language

If I ever go back to HCM, I’ll most likely try out a different hotel. 🙂
