The day started early with a 6am wake up call. T had been in bed from about 3 with ear ache...not a good sign but some calpol did the trick. We managed to get to the breakfast in the exec lounge with 5 mins to spare and the staff were fantastic in stuffing some croissants in coffee cups for us to take with us.
'Hom' met us at reception …
After a late night, the kids didn't wake until 8, which was great.
T tried some homework and then we had a meltdown from both as they tried to do some postcards. We also noticed that a beautiful vase that we bought a couple of days ago was smashed...T denied any knowledge and just as we were about to complain to the hotel, he owned up... …

TravelPod Member ReviewsIntercontinental Asiana Saigon Ho Chi Minh City
A perfect hotel in a perfect location.
