In september 2013 we stayed for one night at the hotel equatorial saigon and we were very pleased. Our room (club floor) was very nice and especially the bathroom made a new impression. Here also has wi-fi in the room. We would the hotel equatorial so book in each case again, if we return to saigon come. read hotel review

    The breakfast on the club floor was very good. However, if you want more choice, should be in the main restaurant breakfast. The dinner buffet in the main restaurant was very varied and also very delicious. We have also once in the orientica restaurant for dinner. Very recommendable!

    That the hotel is not right in the center, did not bother us at all. With the taxi it was no more than 10 minutes (if at all) lasted, to the night market to arrive. And since the taxi prices in Vietnam as you know, not all are too high, it was absolutely no problem. If you don't have the want to drive with the taxi, can also from the hotel provided shuttle bus take advantage of.

The hotel should be 5 stars, but i would not say. Our room was already very worn. It was also very noisy, because one the road, as well as the other guests in the hallways could hear. Wireless internet was not free in the room, only in the lobby. Breakfast and dinner buffet was very good though. From fish to meat to vegetarian for each taste, cold, warm, fresh, pickled. There was everything! However, you should during dinner mood 8., which one could drink. Have careless a water taken (0.2 liters) and that has me but smooth 4 dollars ... cost. read hotel review

The hotel lies at the edge of Chinatown on a lively Crossing. In the surroundings there are a lot of small shops and restaurants in which definitely not English spoken is. The hotel offers a free hotel bus into town to, which several places stops. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is plentiful and good. The Klimaanlagensteuerung is in a panel next to one of the beds accommodated. The Switch in the rooms are somewhat yellowed, but not dirty. It is located on the age of the hotel, but not noticeable is. The hotel and the rooms are ... very clean. In case of any problems with the taxi stands the staff gladly available. It is on arrival with the taxi always asked, whether everything OK was/is. WiFi is in the entire place available. It is unfortunately subject to a charge and 24 hours costs 14 $. That was the only thing which did not bother me. The pool is located in the 4th floor on the street side. From the hustle and bustle you get but nothing. It is in a top condition. read hotel review

An ageing hotel

A small note on the edge: the hotel boasts locally with 5 *! It clearly not deserved. We were as a part of a round trip ( part of our honeymoon) for a couple of nights in this hotel accommodated. When checking in was our tour operator told, that it was not possible benefits on the rooms to Bill, which with another demand as misinformation turned out. In Comparison the room we found out, this quite run-down were. Some switches did not work properly ( included the remote control for the air conditioning as I at night had to say) ... and the bathroom was very small ( in the tub fit my husband only in the 'folded' condition ). Furthermore there were two faucets for hot and cold water, wherein the hot very hot from the tap came. The Cocks dripped despite very firm turns. For breakfast we had frightened to say, for the pancakes and waffles probably sour milk used and eventually discovered, that sausage and cheese uncooled on two wooden planks presented were (the cheese sweated and the sausage was ghoulish and rippled already at the edges). Also the egg tasted strange. The eggs for the scrambled eggs were in large quantity already turned down and were in a large bowl next to the stove. The service for breakfast was more than slow. Used plates were 15 minutes unregarded at the table and after the first cup of tea was only on demand refilled. After this first breakfast we complained right around the hotel an opportunity on improvement to give. The Lord from management spoke quite location with us and promised improvement, at least in the points, the right be improved can. With next breakfast had already a lot done. Sausage and cheese were cooled and on plates presented, waffles amongst others were only on demand prepared and prepared quantity of egg was significantly reduced. As' compensation ' we had already in the evening after the complaint a bottle of wine with a write to our room. In short: on our complaint was very responsive, however the hotel has its best days! read hotel review
