Villa Song Saigon: "One of the best hotel experiences"
This was the most luxurious, tranquil hotel that I have probably ever stayed in!! We arrived here after 12 days cycling holiday and I just needed to be pampered for a few days and sleep and boy does this hotel provide that.. The hotel is small with very high standard setting for meals and the breakfast is all day!! Regardless of when u wake up you can have it, and it was well worth waking up for.. Loved this place and only a boat ride into town which was provided for brill brill brill....

Villa Song Saigon: "Beautiful Property and Elegant Rooms"
"Villa Song is a boutique hotel situated in a quieter part of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) overlooking the Saigon River. We stayed in the Sanctuary Suite, which consisted of three rooms: a sitting area with a fully stocked mini bar, kettle for tea making, a Nespresso machine (unfortunately no decaf pods), and a small couch; a bedroom with a very comfortable bed and fine, soft sheets, and a very large balcony overlooking the outside dining area and the river; an enormous bathroom with two sinks, a shower, and a large soaking tub and a closet with a safe. The floors in the main rooms are a dark wood. Each room, the sitting area and bedroom, has its own air conditioner. The hotel itself is beautiful. It looks very unassuming when you first drive up and walk through the solarium like area to get into the lobby. Once you walk into the lobby you will realize that you've walked into a special place. The hotel is a combination of bright white ceilings and dark wood floors; there's outside and inside dining areas, a pool, a spa and a gym. It's not a large resort like property, it's small and intimate, but has everything you need. Others have mentioned the water shuttle, which we did not use because we had set up some private tours. Given the traffic in Saigon, we would have used it if we weren't touring. The staff is gracious and helpful. Our flight out of Ho Chi Minh City was very early in the morning, and the woman at the desk had the kitchen staff prepare a ""to-go"" breakfast for us. We were grateful for the thoughtfulness. We happened to be there on the weekend. On Saturday night, the property hosted a wedding. The hotel management offered to pay round trip cab fare if you wanted to dine off the property. We chose to order room service, sit on our balcony, and watch the wedding. But their offer for round trip cab fare is a good example of how customer service oriented the hotel is. Breakfast was included in our room charge. They offer the traditional American type breakfasts with eggs, French toast, pancakes etc, along with Asian fare. We ate dinner one night at the hotel; my braised beef ravioli (an appetizer I had as a main course) was very good and the pasta was homemade. I added a pea soup as a starter; the soup was puréed and came with chopped shrimp nestled on the top of the soup. We sat outside on the deck overlooking the water, which I'd recommend. (We were surprised that there were no bugs.) It was fun to sit out there under the palm trees watching the traffic on the river float by. Two drawbacks--there's no elevator, at least I didn't see one, which wasn't a problem for us, but it might be for people who have difficulty climbing stairs, beautiful dark wood staircases, mind you, but stairs nonetheless. (I think the hotel only has three floors.) And the property next door is a bit noisy with karaoke signing in the evening. Our tour guide told us that karaoke is very popular in Viet Nam. While it didn't last past ten p.m., and it's not something under Villa Song's control, it was loud at times. The hotel is expensive, and you get what you pay for--excellent service, elegant rooms, and a top-notch experience."
Maduzi Hotel: "Great hotel, good staff"
"The hotel is in a great location. It is within 100 of Sukhumvit Road yet manages to be rather quiet. The suites are very comfortable and quiet. I love the no quibble everything is free in the mini bar approach. I love the 24x7 cleaning staff approach. For Thailand, they have a fairly well stocked wine and liquor selection. I have found great inconsistency in the front line staff though. Some of the staff were very well trained and could handle most any request. Others I found to be downright infuriating. I would love to see an improvement in consistency for staff training."
tugu bali: "Beautiful Old Bali Style"
"I had spend a couple of night's at the Tugu over Nyepi (Balinese day of silence) and it was a wonderful experience. The rooms are stunning, full of little details that make your stay pleasant and also very unique - you feel in Bali, not like this could be any resort around the world. The staff is very sweet and friendly and the location is unbeatable, walking distance from the beach. "
Rachamankha: "A tranquil haven and touch of paradise"
We stayed five nights in this beautiful hotel. It is a haven of peace in the busy city of Chiang Mai. The restaurant (Courtyard under the stars) is perfect with excellent food, perfect service and evening Thai musicians. Rooms are traditional with all mod cons. Public areas are charming and the pool perfect. Most areas of the old city are within gentle walking distance 10 - 45 minutes). All staff are most helpful. We found this hotel to be a touch of paradise.
Every time I visit Bangkok, Cabochon is my accommodation choice. In fact, I've stayed there five times. And each time, the experience was better than the last. I love the old world charm, chic colonial decor, delicious breakfast, and warm and sincere service. Its restaurant Thai Lao Yeh serves good Isan inspired cuisine. The shaved ice desserts are to diet for. The location is convenient, just 10 mins walk to Bangkok's newest mall EMQuartier. The very hip Sing Sing Theatre is a stone's throw away. Cabochon is a must stay if you love original non-cookie cutter hotels. I'll definitely be back!
The Island Lodge: "A quaint oasis in the Mekong Delta"
We booked to stay at The Island Lodge for 4 nights in May 2016. After travelling through Vietnam from Hanoi and the North, and steadily heading south, we spent a couple of days in Saigon before going to the Mekong. Michel kindly arranged transfers for us from Saigon well before we left for our trip, and all went to plan. We drove down but you can get there by boat as well. It was just the perfect relax-a vous place after the hectic touring of cities. Our room overlooking the pool was excellent, and the staff were lovely, and tree so hard to please us, even though their English was not perfect- however much more perfect than our Vietnamese! It's a charming small resort, and we went on a personal tour with Michel on bikes along some amazing tracks we'd never find on our own, for around 3 hours, on the Ferry and through little villages with everyone saying hello along the way. It was a really unique and bespoke tour and Michel was the perfect host along the way. Food was great and we couldn't have been better looked after. If you are into small hotels which are well run, but offer something deferent to the big internationals, you'll love this place. It only has 12 rooms, so that'll give you an idea of how boutique it is.
