Hong Vy 3 - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Found this hotel while browsing Agoda. Decided to reserve the deluxe room. Compare to the standard room, the deluxe room cost about $3 more.
We arrived at the hotel around 9 in the morning. I asked the receptionist if we could check in right then. She said to wait around half hour. I told her that we'll be back. Even though I don't really want to leave. :) She stopped me and said that she'd check. She then picked up the phone and talked to somebody and came back to tell me that it'd be around 10 minutes.

The lobby was small with a few couches. Two internet stations at one corner offering free internet. From we sat we could see the breakfast room. And next to the elevator was a tiny staircase.

Before we knew it, we got our room key and off we went. Room was bright with two windows facing the road on one side. Next to the bed was a dresser and then a TV. There were also two chairs to go with a tea table. We used those two chairs to put our clothing most of the times. :) We went to check out the bathroom. Pretty decent. Soap and shampoo were provided with clean towels. Standing shower looked a bit worn with door that couldn't close properly but it didn't bother us. Coming from Fernloft, we decided to just stayed in that day and just slept the whole afternoon. And we DID.
