Thank you very much for your interest!
This was my first visit to HCMC and I could not have been more happier with the personal and prompt communications from my host, Mr. James Gilbert and his on-site assistant, Mai Phuong/ Annie. They both addressed all my questions regarding the property, transportation to the city, and the shopping and eating conveniences nearby. The property had a great view of the city at night, felt very secure with 24 security and the room setup was more than adequate for our stay. I would highly recommend James to anyone interested in staying in a very clean and safe unit while visiting HCMC. He and his assistant were both very gracious host's. Thank you.
We stayed in James's appartment for 10 days and it was fantastic in every way. The accommodation was marvelous with great views over the city. The pool on the 25th floor was amazing. We were in HMC over Tet but although the stores at the Manor were closed we were able to get fresh bread and groceries at the local market. We made great friends with people running 105 a local restuarant down the road well worth a visit. All in all we had a month in Vietnam and this was tops Thanks James and Annie
I was very glad to stay in James apartment, everything was ok for me. When all be back there for sure.
Great view, has everything you need.
Wonderful place to be in HCMC. We had a little problem with the Internet when we first arrived, and Jim quickly had a tech in to replace the router. Everything right as rain afterwards, Jim even let us extend our stay for a second week. Great view of the city, short walk to District 1. Clean, quiet, and plenty of hot water. Super friendly help, taxis always available out the front door if you should need one, three or four banks and many more ATMs in the complex, laundry service available, two good grocery stores, and lots of quick eats to choose from. We will return during our next vacation in HCM.
Very nice place and close to the central districts. I had a peaceful, enjoyable stay here.
This place is really wonderful with stunning views of the city! We loved Binh Thanh district, which is much less touristy than staying in D1. The pools are beautiful and the markets and restaurants very conveniently located on the ground floors. Jim and Ms. Phoung, his rep in Saigon, were delightful, helpful, and so generous at every turn-from reservation to check out. Cannot recommend this home far away from home enough!
I've been coming to HCMC for over 8 years for work, and stayed in a range of accommodation.
The Manor is a lovely building, the apartment was fantastic...on par with staying at the Sofitel but for a quarter of the price.
Jim as a host was polite, and very organised. My only concern about booking again is that I think the apartment will be booked solid!
Tip: join the gym for the week for only $30.
Just finished an 8 day stay in this beautiful studio apartment. It has easy access to District 1. The grocery store in the basement is like an expanded 7/11. Reasonable food in the building restaurants and easy taxi access. Easy area to walk around but not right in the downtown hub. Great views. Pool on the 25 th floor is wonderful for exercising. You get a western feel not a Vietnamese.
I just stayed in Jim's apartment (March 2013), and the first three words that come to mind are beautiful / simple / quiet. The building is less than a couple years old and all the high-quality fixtures & building materials used throughout this studio apartment are in great shape. It's also on a "cornerstone" spot of the building (18th floor), so the views of the city are jawdropping, especially at night. It's pretty compact in size, but the quality of what you get for the price makes it a superb value. I can't imagine myself wanting to stay anywhere else next time I'm in HCMC.
