Un sitio bonito para alojarse pero...
Es un hotel estupendo y lo pasamos genial. Hay que decir que está un poco lejos de la ciudad y que no tiene nada por la zona ni sus cercanías.
La piscina era fantástica y el desayuno buffet fue bueno. La habitación no tenía pega alguna y el personal fue fantástico. La cena buffet era un poco cara y solo fue buena por sus fantásticos mariscos.
En esta zona de la ciudad no hay caminos por los que pasear, cosa que me dejó muy desalentado en mi primer viaje fuera de Australia.
También estuvimos en el Hotel Windsor Plaza del Distrito 5. Si quieres hacer comparaciones puedes leer nuestra crítica allí.
A Nice Place to Stay... but
This is a great hotel and we had a great time here. We would say that it is a bit far from the city and there is nothing around this hotel for quite a way.
The pool was fantastic and the buffet breakfast was good. The room was faultless and the staff fantastic. Buffet dinner was a little expensive and only good for seafood fanatics.
There are no footpaths in this part of town which made it daunting for my first trip outside of Australia.
We also stayed at the Windsor Plaza Hotle in District 5. You can read our review there also if you would like a comparison.
Nice enough, but not family friendly
Had two stays in this hotel, one overnight, and one just for the afternoon. We used this hotel entirely due to its proximity to the airport. If you're on business, this is probably the type of hotel you want. If you're with family, then I think not.
Unloading from our van took a while - with a family of five there's quite a lot of luggage. The hotel staff were impatient for our driver to move along.
The children were told not to make so much noise in the pool - despite the fact they were the only ones using it, and the noise from the traffic outside was far greater. Apparently they were worried about upsetting their business clients.
We had two rooms. While packing up to leave, we were going from one to the other. We were told quite curtly that we should not leave the doors open.
The prices for food and drink are exhorbitant. Despite a 5% service charge, the staff still expect tips.
On the plus side, we found the front desk staff helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel is visually stunning, and the pool is somehow kept a little cooler than you'd expect. Very nice when it it +30°C air temperature.
Great hotel, memorable place.
The hotel was great (altough maybe a little out of the way for tourists). We stayed in a suite with a separate shower and tub (tub has a glass wall that looked out into the sleeping area). The staff was very nice and met all of our needs. The room was modern, clean, and bed very comfortable. The hotel had a fruit basket for us in the room upon check-in and even packed an early morning take-away breakfast for us since we were catching a flight the next morning at 5 am (which was very nice of them). Looking forward to staying here again!
Good hotel, excellent breakfast!
Very comfortable hotel.
Very wide range of cuisines on offer at breakfast.
Traffic outside is busy (though that's true for the whole city) but the bus service to downtown is convenient and free.
We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and even if it is a 20 minutes ride with the shuttle bus to town it is worthed , the hotel is quiet and you do not hear no motorcycles which is fantastic the rooms were very nice big and clean.the breakfast was very good .
The Novotel is a welcome oasis from the extreme hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City. For those who have not traveled to HCMC before, we highly recommend not staying in the city center if you're not prepared for it. The Novotel staff spoke English very well and were eager to help, even helping us change airline reservations last minute. Breakfast was great and had a wide variety for westerners and natives alike. The pool is often used for events, such as weddings that the hotel hosts. During our stay, a wedding took place each day and we were unable to use the pool area. We did, however, use the spa services and internet inexpensively offered by the hotel. The comfortable beds and very modern, air-conditioned rooms were a great place to come "home" to after a long day of sight-seeing. The close proximity to the airport makes it ideal for tourists too. A short cab ride will deliver you to the town and other tourist sites. We would highly recommend the Novotel and plan to stay again on our next trip to Saigon.
No swimming pool
Agree with most of the previous comment. Tour operators do use it to avoid the city centre traffic, very sensible too. I would rate the hotel above average on the strength of the rooms and service but don't expect a swimming pool. What they have is more of a water feature which is out of bounds whenever there is a function - i.e most days.
Out of Town
I think that our tour operator put us here because it is close to the airport and to avoid the morning traffic when going to the CuChi tunnels. However, it does put you off venturing into Ho Chi Minh itself because it is not close.
That said, the hotel was pretty much standard Novotel. Room was large and clean and the buffet restaurant served good quality varied food.

... in 606 and 607, where are you?" "201" annie informed. We went down and knocked loudly, nobody replied so we went to our room to use the wifi to communicate they needed to answer their door. "Your not in room 607!" Annie had sent to our group inbox. Oh no.... We weren't even in the same hotel even though we had booked our tour as a group through the same lady. Annie had interrupted a couple late at night with a 'Do not disturb' sign hanging from ...

(Yes really!) for a mere 109,000 VND (£3) - plenty left for a trip to Lotteria! Turns out you can buy a cheese burger meal for 58,000 VND (£1.70)! Katie even got super generous and treated us to a 9p ice cream cone each for desert! Last part of the evening was ...
... cliff that contained a very large waterfall. We literally repelled right through the waterfall with thousands of pounds of water plummetting into your face. The last 8 meters we unhooked our ropes and fell into the cold pools of water below. We even went down natural water slides with our lifejackets and helmets on. Crazy I thought, but sliding down rocks on your back head first can actually be fun and you don't have to die or hurt yourself. I felt very good at my ...
... is a very important part of daily life. They had a small coconut candy making operation there. We were able to sample all 6 flavors of delicious candies. We also sampled a shot of coconut wine, tasty and strong. Also sampled a shot of snake wine. Wow, it was like a bottle of Everclear but inside the bottle was a Cobra and a Scorpion. Supposed to promote virility! Rice is also a very important part of the economy and daily diet. We got to see how they ...
