Had a good time. Room was clean, food was good, television perfect, swimming pool and gym were good too. Everything was really good. The only problem was that wifi went off due to a problem with internet wires under the sea connecting to USA. However, it was fine most of the time. Every person in the hotel was very friendly and amiable. We enjoyed everything!
We recently stayed at the Somerset Chancellor Court with our 2yo and 5yo kids while in Vietnam for a family wedding. We enjoyed our time at the hotel and found the room facilities excellent- really well appointed and comfortable, with the staff very attentive and friendly. One thing we particularly liked was that bottles of drinking water are replenished each day, which saved us having to worry about going out and getting water for ourselves. Not that it was too difficult to do so- the small supermarket on the ground floor of the hotel had everything we needed.
The location was great, right in the middle of District 1 and within easy walking distance of all the major attractions, including the Ben Thanh markets, the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum. Taxis were also always available, and transport around the local area rarely cost more than US$1-2.
The hotel also includes a well-appointed play area for kids and a swimming pool. Possibly the only not-so-child-friendly feature of the hotel was that the pool does not have a play area for kids, and is quite deep at all points. Our 5yo is a good swimmer, but with no point in the pool where she could stand, she struggled a bit to enjoy her swimming time.
Otherwise, no complaints from us- we would happily stay at the Somerset Chancellor Court again and would recommend it highly to anyone travelling to HCMC with kids.

Was extremely suprised by the size of our apartment. Had everything one could need. Large bedrooms, nice living room with comfortable furnature and TV stations with Western language stations as well as local. (Two adults and two 9 year old children) Great having a washer/dryer in the apartment. Breakfast was nice eating out by the water and the fresh fruit and juice was quite good. Enjoyed the soup in the morning and staff was always trying to please. All of the staff was great and very helpful. Our kids definitely enjoyed the boat ride to and from the hotel. Easy to get a Taxi when wanted to use one.

Really loved being on the river and out of the noise and hussle of the city. The boat and bus options were easy and enjoyable. The 2 bedroom apt was awesome for privacy when we were tired from 24 hr flights. We were two single women and had a bedroom and bath. We also loved the kitchen for breakfast in our pajamas. Very quiet and helpful staff. I left a bag there went off to Cambodia and am returning for my last 2 nights before flying back to the states.
