Amazing hotel close to exhibition centrePosted Dec 17, 2013
Pros: Room size, architecture, amneties, location
Cons: buffet breakfast rather then set menu
Location: Good location for SECC, however you need a taxi ($7-10) to go downtown.
We book the hotel since it was close to the Saigon exhibition centre were we had a trade show. The hotel is simply amazing, very small in terms of room numbers (I think only 19) but the rooms are huge. The hotel has kind of 'arabic' motif and it is simply stunning. The room was shinning all the time. Staff was very helpfull and ready to answer any question or request. We had an early flight before breakfast sowhile waiting for the taxi, we ask coffee which arrived in now time free of charge. The hotel location is perfect to anyone who has a symposium/trade show at the SECC . The location is also not 'typical' Vietnamese. The hotel located near a lake and it is very quite area with quite a few nice restaurants and very western shopping centre near by.

Taj Mahal meets Art Deco - a bit fantastical!Posted Oct 20, 2013
Beautiful setting and the decor makes you feel like you living in a surreal dream. However many staff have limited English (though they try to be helpful) some improvement on check in to the room wouldn't go astray as lights are in hard to find places, tv remote requires a lesson, soap, menus, kettle and rubbish bins are not where you would expect so it can be frustrating upon arrival. Some of the practicalities of the design are curious - twin beds but open plan bathroom can be awkward I suspect. Fabulous food in French restaurants but unnecessarily overpriced drinks. Location is not practical to explore Ho Chi Min but in the newest part of Vietnam ( expat territory) so feels more like Singapore. The photos of the place make up for most of it though.

Very unique surroundings,close to many resturantsPosted Oct 1, 2013
Pros: A very unique style with high quality fittings.
Cons: Unfortunately some of the workmanship let down the high standard of this resort eg.poor painting of windows,paint on glass ,crooked fitting A/C vents
Location: Eat,drink enjoy explore,be adventurous,walk anywhere as long as you see taxis you should be able to get back to where you started.
The manager & majority of staff are very professfional & accommodating,my only observation was that if you don't speak or understand Vietnamese you had better get a translation dictionary,not that many Vietnamese understand any English language.My wife is from Phillipines & I am Australian,it was very suprising to me that the majority of Vietnamese nationals we met would assume my wife was Vietnamese & speak to her in their language of course she did not understand a word,which was quite amusing to try and explain.I also observed that some Asians do not approve of an Australian being in a relationship with an Asian,which I found to be very closed minded in this day & age as Australia is very multi cultural.Unfortunately some Japanese think they are superior to all other Asian & westerners,they really need a reality check.All in all a very enjoyable trip with very unique culture and people.

Feeling Royal at TajmasagoPosted Aug 21, 2013
I've never stayed in a more beautiful place. This place is aptly named as it does truly make you feel like royalty. The rooms are breathtaking and all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

A luxery holidayPosted Jul 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
Was the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Everything was luxurious and immaculate. Service was first class and we were treated like royalty. I would recommend this hotel for a first class pamper package... amazing and pleasurable holiday from start to finish. Great value for money too.. Breakfast was included and it was fine dining at its best....
