Alagon D’Antique Hotel & Spa
Our hotel in Ho Chi Minh City was simply too good not to share. Let’s talk location first: we wanted to be in the center of the action but still be able to sleep at night. You probably know the struggle :). This hotel is located in District 1, which is known for its markets, shops and museums. Ben Thanh Market was just around the corner and the Reunification Palace was also nearby. All of the places we visited were at walking distance, which is such a convenience if you prefer to discover a city by foot.
We very much appreciated the interior: a beautiful, spacious lobby with a bar, several restaurants that connected the other hotel buildings belonging to Alagon D’Antique to one another, a rooftop where you can find two different bars, a swimming pool, a spa and best of all a great view of the city. Our room was great as well: the right size, a comfortable bed and a big & clean bathroom. But what we loved best was the staff: they really went above and beyond to make our stay as great as possible. They were always very accommodating & friendly.
When you stay at this hotel, have a meal here if you can: they offer a wide variety of dishes for almost no money (at least not to us, compared to the average cost of a dish in Belgium) that are really delicious. If you do not feel like leaving the room, they offer room service as well. Breakfast is very extended and they serve high tea with pastries & fruits in the afternoon.
