A great place to stay
This is not a large hotel, but it is a very nice place. Staff is helpful and friendly. Most have some English. Rooms are a good size and the cleaning staff does a good job. A nice breakfast comes with the meal and I really appreciate the fresh fruit which they serve with the breakfast. Hotel is in a good location for exploring the city. Taxis are readily available and many types of restaurants are within an easy walking distance. A good strong WiFi in the rooms and common areas. They also provide a couple of computers for the use of the guest. Will stay here next time I am here. Web site www.springhotelvietnam.com email springhotel@hcm.vnn.vn
