A lovely hotel to stay with the family..easy access to shopping mall and fast food outlets....good double and twin rooms....did not have much interaction with staff but very courteous front office staff...overall a comfortable stay...surely can recommend...

My wife and I decided to visit Ho Chi Minh and booked the Golden Central hotel for 2 nights. The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that the staff were reasonably friendly. Do not be fooled by the photographs on their website as they bear little resemblance to the actual room. Posters in the elevator indicate that the pool is under maintenance however it doesn't appear close to being finished anytime soon. When I arrive at any hotel I usually request an iron to press clothing crumpled from the luggage. Unfortunately the front desk informed me they don't offer an iron so I was forced to walk around with creased up clothing. The breakfast was less than appetizing, my advice go out to into the city and eat out. For what we paid I'm quite sure there are better options in hotel accommodation. In fact the same area is full of hotels that at least on the outside appear much nicer. Next time we will choose much more carefully.

We have a nice stay in the hotel. Receptionist extremely helpful and profestional. We had a problem with the Tv (because it is a new digital box) so we don't know how to use it, but the bellman came and help me how to control it- he is so nice (I forgot his name ^^). I will come back to this hotel one day. Thank you Golden Hotel. We love front office staff very much- ^^

Good hotel in the centre of town where we spent 2 nights. Food good as was accommodation - can't think why so few people seem to use the restaurant - we found the food very good. The rooftop pool was fun felt as if you'd be falling off the top of the building!

First hotel we stayed in Vietnam. It was a very friendly hotel.the restaurant was on the top floor with an amazing view. The breakfast was good not too good with their sausage but that's the only complaint. It was in the city centre so very easy to get to places. All the staff were good and anything needed was attended to. I would use this hotel again

I stayed here with friends 4 years ago and had a fabulous experience. This is why when planning our trip this year I recommended the Golden Central Hotel Saigon. Last visit i gave the hotel a 10/10 on and a 5/5 on Trip Adviser. Very rarely would I give such a high result, but it was worth it. in 2014 we stayed twice and on all 3 stays including this one we occupied 4 rooms. The best part is the Location, in amongst attractions, restaurants and city living. Unfortunately this is where the positives end..... One day during our stay the Pool and Resturant was Closed from 1:30pm - 10:00pm for a private Birthday Party. The signs in the lift and door to the pool didn't go up until after 9.00am. Day one, my room entrance light and Bathroom Shaver Power Point didn't work. I advised Reception the next morning, however the Power Point was never fixed and the light only lasted 4 hours. Their were no Power Points in easy reach for Phone / Tablet Charging in the bedroom with all the sockets in the room utilised by appliances (TV, Lamps etc). Note to Hotel; change Power Points to doubles and this will solve the problem. Breakfast was average most mornings with one morning disgusting. The fruit Juice (questionable being juice) had too much ice in the container and as such watered it down. Another customer complained whilst we were having breakfast about the Juice. He had to pay for a fresh Juice. Note to Hotel; Place ice in a seperate adjacent vessel to the juice. The Hotel displayed the Currency Exchange Rates, however when questioned they provided a less favourable rate when actually changing money. They said that the displayed rates were the official rates! Note to Guests; Go to the Western Union Money Exchange opposite the northern side of the markets. My room was small with the side of bed against the wall. Not good for couples. The Room was very dark and as such could not read at night. Their were only two table lamps and a lamp stand in the room. All lamps had low wattage globes. Their was also not adequate space for storage of clothes etc. Their were no Umbrellas in room to use during the torrential rain. The TV Remote Control did not operate the TV, only the Setup Box. I had to get out of bed to turn the TV on/off. On the second last day all our room keys failed to operate. I can understand glitches in a system, however the staff didn't even say sorry for the inconvenience when they reprogrammed our keys. I suppose they were a bit shocked at me standing there in my Budget Smugglers (Speedo's) as I had come from the pool. Not sure why this hotel has gone down in the four years since I last visited, however I will probably find another hotel for our next stay in Ho Chi Minh City.

I will visit Vietnam again soon and hope to stay in Golden Hotel. Fabulous hotel I totally enjoyed there, So just want to say how privileged it was for me to stay in Golden Central hotel in Saigon, I have been to Canada Vancouver and Australia Sydney in big hotels and these hotels are not half as good as this hotel I mean this sincerely as yours is great value for money, And the staff so helpful in every respect, I had some phone problems and Bell Boy there sorted out problem for me and staff in Breakfast bar where so courteous and helpful, And I like to say a very special thanks to a Lady on every morning I went to breakfast greeted me with a big smile and helped me with lots of information about Saigon and Vietnam very intelligent lady and has the height of courteous towards all the guests there, I have recommended it to lots of people, Well done Golden Central keep up standards 10s all round ,

Convenient to markets, restaurants and tourist attractions. a modern hotel with comfortable, well furnished rooms. Good buffet breakfast and a roof top pool with great views. Waking distance to most things which was great

Vinhvinh, manager of the Golden Center Hotel was very nice. His services was outstanding. He treats customers like family. The room was very clean. The breakfast was my favorite and the staffs were very nice. If I coming back to VN I will absolutely return to Golden Center Hotel again.

Stayed here for 3 nights, great location right near all the markets. On a very busy street and steep stairs up to the main door. Staff on hand ready to take your suitcases for you. We had a Deluxe room, which I found out is the standard room. It was very small, I've never seen such a small wardrobe, it was next to the bed and you couldn't even open both doors, couldn't un-pack the suitcases as no storage space either. But it was OK for 3 days. Although there was plenty of choice at breakfast the quality wasn't very good, no tables were laid up, you had to do it yourself. Didn't eat in the hotel apart from a sandwich on the day we left, which was very good. Staff all very friendly. The pool was small but nice enough to cool down in. A definite 3 star hotel.
