Our stay at the equatorial hotel in Ho Chi Minh would have to be the best experience of our many travels. The friendliest and most helpful staff ever encountered. It is a shame that we cannot get this type of service back home.

Great hotel, easy access to all sights

The hotel was lovely. The lobby and attention to detail is also impressive. The breakfast was amazing and had something for everybody. The rooms were tidy and spacious. Our toilet broke at 11pm and they had a maintenance man up to our room in less than 3 mins. We liked this hotel as it was on a semi quiet street but only a few mins walk to the famous Ho Chi Minh round about, which is quite a sight to behold. They offer a complimentary shuttle to All the major sights at regular intervals and the staff are very professional. Overall very happy with our three night stay.

We had a pleasant stay at Hotel

We had a pleasant stay at Hotel Equatorial Ho Chi Minh. The room was cozy and comfortable. Amenities were complete. Though the hotel was relatively far from District 1, the free shuttle service was a big help to us. Loved the food and service at their seafood restaurant, Orientica though it was quite expensive.
