The 95-room, upper-middle-range Harmony Hotel is a calm respite from the hectic streets of Ho Chi Minh City, situated within walking distance of popular restaurants and sights such as Ben Thanh Market and Saigon Opera House. Features include an indoor pool with a lounge deck, sauna and steam rooms, and a range of spa services. All rates include a hot-and-cold breakfast buffet with local and international options, which is served in the all-day restaurant. Neutral-tone rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and minibars, but guests complain they're on the smaller side, let in lots of noise, and that some lack windows. It's worth comparing rates with the nearby Grand Silverland Hotel & SPA, which has a rooftop pool and restaurant.
Modern and airy public spaces, but no real atmosphere
The Harmony Hotel sits in a tall, narrow building -- typical for Vietnam -- that allows for impressive views of the city from the restaurant's panoramic windows and certain rooms. Common spaces are modern, from the lobby's sparkling tile and striking orange light fixture, to the indoor pool's wooden deck and beach-inspired wall mural. The hotel doesn't provide much in the way of atmosphere, but it has a prime setting near the business district and city center, making it suitable for both tourists and business travelers.
Short walk to city center, surrounded by restaurants and convenience stores
Hotel Harmony is crammed between tall apartment buildings, restaurants, and shops on a bustling, tree-lined street. Even though the hotel is not quite in the true city center, popular sights and attractions -- such as the Ben Thanh Market, Saigon Opera House, and Tao Dan Park -- are still within walking distance, and taxis hang around in front of the hotel for longer trips. The Tan Son Nhat International Airport is a 30-minute drive away, and the hotel offers free transfers with some of its more luxurious rooms.
Contemporary rooms have a neutral-tone color scheme consisting of wood floors and furniture, brown bed runners and throw pillows, backlit headboards, and beige walls. They're generic but well-appointed with flat-screen TVs, safes, coffee- and tea-making facilities, minibars, and two free bottles of water. Guests will also find soft robes and cotton slippers in the large wooden closets. Bathrooms have either stall showers or shower/tub combos, hairdryers, and a full range of toiletries; many also have windows looking into the bedrooms, but they have shades for privacy. Some also have jetted tubs. The Harmony Suite offers a private balcony with an outdoor jacuzzi. While some rooms offer sweeping views of the entire city, some have no windows at all.
A unique indoor/outdoor pool, spa treatments, and a restaurant with a view.
The Harmony Hotel offers a solid amount of amenities, including an indoor pool with jets and an adjacent wooden deck lined with cushioned lounge chairs and tables for bar and snack service. Also in this area are a steam room, sauna, and rooms for a variety of spa treatments. Beside the pool is the 24-hour gym, but it's really just a few exercise machines and free weights. Meeting rooms are available, as are computers and a printer in the lobby. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property.
The on-site City View Restaurant is a minimalist space with panoramic windows for excellent views. It's open for all meals, and all rates include a hot-and-cold breakfast buffet with cooked-to-order eggs. The Lobby Bar provides a more casual setting for cocktails or dinner, plus room service is available 24 hours. Club-level guests have exclusive access to the Executive Lounge for refreshments.
