- Shopping & Culinary
Noisy from other rooms, aircon was not cold at all. I didn't even take any breakfast at all (you have to come as early as you can and pack for yourself) Too much! And the price also not that cheap.
- Family vacation
Nice hotel for this room rate. Staff were friendly, But breakfast was not enough after 08.30 am.
- Backpacking
Very good hotel to stay in HCM city, nearby have many cafes and restaurants and you will never get hungry. Nice service of receptionist and great choice of breakfast served on the 8th floor starting from 6.30am every morning. Would recommend to others who going to HCM city. Thank you for the service!
- Family vacation
Everything great, but breakfast have to be improved.
Good location. You may request Uber/Grab using Tojo Coffee, your driver can easily locate you.
- Backpacking
Worth the price, it has everything that you needed as a city hotel. Close to everything, clean, the staff are helpful. The location is not hard to find.
- Romantic Vacation
Very clean , quiet , service and comfortable. We will book this hotel again
Non smoking room,no unpleasant smell.
The room and the toilet are very clean. But food is not halal and the hotel is located at the back of other buildings but it's still safe.

A disgrace to Cititel branding
First of all, i would like to comment about the free buffet breakfast. It was horrendous, restaurant was dirty, food was beyond a joke, no proper tea or coffee served. The waiters looked like they didnt want to be there. The bedroom was tiny and the bathroom is always choked and clogged up. It looks like it needs a good renovation as well. We requested an extra keycard and they said they cannot do that. The only good thing about this hotel is the location. It is very quiet in the back alley, brightly litted. It is good to stay here for a few days but if you want something fancier, then try somewhere else. For the price we paid about 60USD, it is so not worth it.

Cititel on the mark
We made a last minute change to stay at the Cititel which is in a great location very close to the centre of SaiGon, but it is in a lane so it is very quiet. Built 2 years ago, the Cititel has a classy appearance, friendly, professional staff, with an inexpensive room rate of about AU$45. We had 3 short stays at the Cititel in between side trips from SaiGon. Our rooms (502) (604) were fair size with ample hanging and storage space and all the usual things for a hotel room. The king size beds are quite comfortable, while the bathroom has the usual things for a hotel of this standard. One puzzling thing is the provision of a kettle, coffee/tea and sugar sachets but no milk. Breakfast is self-serve but don’t expect a big buffet spread. There’s a juice in a jug of ice, and the food choices are limited to sliced cold meat, sliced fruit and lettuce salad, about 4 warm (not hot) serves which excludes any usual Western tastes. A make-do toaster that takes ages, sliced bread, baguettes, and at times, a bowl of Asian food is provided. Pots of coffee and tea are on warmers. On our last stop, the quality and quantity of breakfast foods had increased markedly. On our first stay, the door of 502 had to be pushed really hard to lock it. Also, during an overnight storm, a square metre of water pooled on the floor. I found a half centimetre gap at the top of the window and the rubber sealant strip missing from the other window. That also explained the outside noise intrusion. Both problems had been attended to when we stayed that same room on our third stop. That’s impressive. Like most hotels, the rooms have a lack of convenient power outlets. I suspect every traveller has a smart phone, laptop/iPad which require charging each night. Power outlets are mainly on the wall and inconvenient if you want to work on your device while it is charging. Generally, an excellent hotel in a prime location, reasonably priced with friendly, helpful English speaking staff.

Excellent Hotel but the air-conditioning needs some work
Was very very pleased with the hotel. Extremely relaxing in terms of the decor, choices of channels to watch and the amazing rain shower. Even breakfast was good! Location was superb and was close to everything we needed. The only downfall was the air conditioning could have been colder. Takes a while to cool down.

This hotel is now called Cititel Boutique
The hotel was very good value. We had a family connecting room which was of a good standard. The staff were very helpful and accommodating and allowed us to check into the room at 9.30 in the morning without extra charge when we arrived after a 12 hour flight from the UK. Breakfast was a little limited but OK. Overall it was really well located and a good value base to explore Ho Chi Minh
