Recent guest reviews

We stayed for 3 nights in a double room on the 6th floor and absolutely loved our stay! The staff came running out to greet us on check in and reception were quick to check us in. There is an on-site excursions staff member and she was lovely & helpful finding us day tours for the Mekong Delta and the tunnels. The room was clean but a little on the small side, our double bed was pushed up against the wall but the bed was heavenly! Bathroom was exceptionally clean, good water pressure and always had hot water. The staff couldn’t do enough for us, my boyfriend wasn’t feeling well one night and I didn’t want to walk around on my own looking for a pharmacy so the bellman went out on my behalf and brought medicine to our room! I just wrote down what I needed and he brought it back within 10 minutes! Breakfast was great, plenty of choice and they even provided actually tea bags with hot water! (Most hotels pre-stew tea in pots) The rooftop pool is small but lovely & peaceful and staff are always on hand for drink orders. Location of the hotel is excellent, it’s around the corner from Ben Thành market and a 10-15 minute walk to Walking Street and the war museum. We also went to Chill skybar which is a nightclub on the 26th floor of the AB tower and this was only a 10 minute walk max. Overall, a great stay and I would definitely stay here again when visiting Saigon. I saw a couple of reviews saying this is a budget hotel, I would say it’s definitely great value for money but wouldn’t class this as “budget”.

First time travel to Vietnam and stayed at this hotel for a week. It is a budget hotel with value for money. We accidentally booked an extra night with no refund and the staff organised hotel transfers for us free of charge when notified of our error. Breakfast great with good choice location excellent rooms clean and good size great shower with good water pressure and plenty of hot water we will be back

Perfect central location. Rooms are basic.. Extremely clean.. Bathroom was clean too.. Comfortable.. 5 min walk to Ben Thanh Market.. Highly recommended.. Rooftop pool.. Staff sre friendly and welcoming..

Awesome stay.... room was as described on website. Staff were especially helpful during our stay and very friendly. Breakfast was a good variety and changed each day. Special mention to the security at the front and to Filter Han Trieu Phi for being so helpful during our stay.... we hope to visit your hotel again soon �

Just recently stayed here for a short city break, I thought the situation of the hotel was great, the breakfast was fine with plenty of choice. But I was amazed at the views of the restaurant and bar especially at night you can see all of Saigon lit up. I would also like to thank Thu in the restaurant bar for being a great help :)

A very good experience, located almost near to everything ,at a walking distance from downtown where the nightlife for Hoc hi minx takes place ,deserves a first look, The room prices are considerably logical, the staff polite, free wifi, clean and quite

We stayed here for seven nights. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast with a lot of things to choose among. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Spa in hotel that offers many different treatments. We are really happy to stay in a hotel in this neighbourhood of Ho Chi Minh.

It's only my 3rd day here (2nd night) and i still have quite a few more nights here.. so far enjoying it. Booked 2 signature deluxe rooms: one for my parents and one for my fiance and me.. 903 seems like a bigger room though it seems they are both the same size. Food is delicious to say the least.. good spread with great views on the 16th and 17th floors... we enjoy having drinks by the pool on the 16th floor whilst my fiance smokes his cigars or pipes... Most importantly.. the stay is made better due to the impeccable service... at all times.. We start the day right greeted by the on-the-ball, polite, warm, friendly and ever efficient restaurant supervisor MR FILTER HAN TRIEU PHI and his excellent team.. they are amazing and start your day right. We had dinner indoors last night due to the weather and it was delicious and excellent too... service as well. Would like to commend the excellent online service help rendered by MS KRISTEN who answered all queries efficiently and politely.. Looking forward to the rest of our stay and to the new year's eve party too:):) Take note.. there is a 'happy hour time' for the spa services (20% off) but do note you are forced to tip.. they make you fill up comment forms and hover til you tip. Frankly.. i always tip but i don't like it when I'm forced to. Makes me uncomfortable.

I had one month business trip and stayed at Golden Central Hotel, which is located just in the center of the city very close to Ben Thanh Market and within walking distance to a lot of places to visit. The rooms in the hotel are quite comfortable with really great view of the city, especially at night. Breakfast was not really the best one, the variety of meals was quite poor, but the service of restaurant staff and the taste of food was really impressive. Staff of the hotel was really outstanding, anticipating every wish!!!

Spent a few nights here with a mate for his first time in Viet Nam, great location with a wonderful spa within it. My masseuse pronounced 'shin' (not sure how to spell it correctly), was of the best massages I have had in Viet Nam
