Has a great pool Nd rooftop bar.

Not in hotel booked as all Alagon hotels are connected and then charged to use pool which booking never indicates as a extra cost. Cheaper if booking direct as has package deals not available through booking sights.

3 Alagon hotels in the same building

Pros: Location
Cons: Be clear as to which of the 3 hotels you are booked into, and honour your actual booking.
Be careful when booking this hotel. It is quite confusing, as there are 3 hotels back to back on the same site, attached by two restaurants and the rooftop bar/ gym/ pool. We purposely booked the same hotel for our inward and outward stays, paying extra for a better room. On our first stay, we had a spacious comfortable room in one part of the building, but on our return, we had a tiny dark and inadequate room in another part of the building, whereby I had to climb over my husband in order to access the bathroom. This room cost more than the first one. When I politely challenged the staff, showing them my email booking for the same type of room as before, they fobbed me off with an excuse that I had made a mistake and booked a different part of the hotel than before. There was no negotiation as to changing to a nicer room. So be very careful. Breakfast was plentiful, and the location good, but I wouldn't return to the hotel due to what felt like a scam over the rooms. Also, there is no access to the pool or fitness centre on your day of departure- further scam as far as I am concerned.

Great location.

Pros: Staff, pool, position.
Cons: Update the rooms, especially furniture.
Location: All the tourist sites are close by.
Staff here are great especially the ladies on the front desk. Good English and friendly. Strange set up as we were taken through breakfast area to the lift. We found later that there was a lift outside our room door. Breakfast very good, lots of variety. Pool excellent. Overall for the price we were very happy.

Exploring Ho Chi Minh

Pros: The location is very good and the rooms were quite quiet despite traffice,large led sign opposite hotel was annoying but out of there control.
Cons: Overall it was a good stay and really can't think of anything that could be improvec
Location: Close walk to Ben Thang market,also streets at market close for night market. Circle k convenience store witn atm, starbucks over the road
After a initial dissatisfaction with our room not looking like the images on Wotif we were upgraded to the D Antique. Our new room was on the 8th floor and was nice, nothing spectacular but did the job. Breakfast was okay ...usual buffet spread but the staff were generally attentive. You receive pool cards to use the pool on the 11th floor also the rooftop bar is there and a nice place above the chaos of the city and generally a cool breeze could be felt...can highly recommended the strawberry mojitos....very good and Jenny up there is lovely. Anyone frpm the street can use the pool for 9usd....sometimes this meant that the 6 deck chairs were taken. The different entrances were at times a little confusing,overall we enjoyed our stay and Kevin on the tour desk was very helpful. The high tea while lovely in the afternoon was sometimes a little unusual but i do realize it was not a traditional English high tea.

Good location but....

Good location close to markets and lots of great restaurants, spas and shops. Rooftop bar is ok and happy hour goes 3-7pm. That's about it. Decor is dated and shabby, breakfast is hit & miss and the 5 or so hotel street fronts and parts of the " hexagon" restaurant is confusing. Shower head in our room only waist high and beds were hard. Were told we couldn't use the rooftop pool but had to go to reception and purchase a ticket (no thanks).... It was ok but i suspect you could do a lot better for your $$ in the area.
