Golden Central Hotel Saigon

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed at this great 4* hotel for two nights as part of our tour of Vietnam. The Golden Central is in the middle of this very exciting and buzzing city where you can see all of the reputed 70000000 million scooters/motor bikes in one day! Crossing the road is not for the faint hearted! The hotel is clean, modern, great roof top swimming pool, towels supplied, ample seating to sit or lounge around the pool, bar service. Bedroom was large, great shower and excellent free WiFi. We only had breakfast in the hotel but there was a good choice of Asian and European self service food with the now traditional polite and super helpful Vietnamese staff. Great City, so much to see.

Location wise. Clean and cute toilet! comfortable beds and pillows, helpful and friendly staff, nice view, rooftop pool. Perfect hotel and value for money. Though they didn’t picked us up at the airport when we arrived, I already arranged and emailed them but when we got there they did not give me any message lol. I will still return to this hotel because I feel comfortable here and safe.

We stayed at Golden Central for 3 nights. It was a pleasant stay, lovely breakfast everyday, extremely helpful staff. It was walking distance to restaurants and shopping markets :-) Would definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay in Ho Chi Minh City.

We had four nights at the Golden Central Hotel and enjoyed the experience. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well furnished. Brighter globes or additional lighting would be beneficial and some draws to store clothing. The rooftop pool and bar are great. A pool is always a hit with the children. The breakfast was good with variety of western and Asian foods. Being on the 17th floor, there were great views of the surrounding area. Close to local attractions and walking distance to restaurants, markets and shops.

Visited for 3 nights as part of a tour group. Small very dark rooms (with the lights all on I needed a torch to unpack), hardly any floor space and air conditioning barely working. Someone came to fix It, removed a ceiling time and hit something and replaced the tile - nothing changed. Breakfasts ok. Would not recommend it despite its central position.

We arrived at The Golden Central for 2 nights on our tour of Vietnam, we were booked in very quickly and shown our room, as my photos show the room is very dated but the air-con works well and there is every thing you need in the room,also the shower was very good and powerful, the breakfast was good and we could find everything we wanted to eat, also there is WiFi all round the hotel. The Hotel is in a good location and very close to the indoor market. Thank you to all the staff who made us welcome.

We stayed last two nights of our Vietnam trip in golden central. Room was ok which we had on a 12th floor next to elevator. Luckily there was not so much traffic suring night so elevator noices were not a problem. Location was perfect and it was nice to have a little batch in a little pool. There were different items for a breakfast but quality was not so good. For two nights overall experience was ok.

The hotel has a good central location comfortable beds and one of the best showers I've seen. Bar prices are very good and the hotel has two breakfast rooms, one for Asian tastes and one for western. Some rooms are an odd shape and the area can be a bit noisy. Our air conditioning was not working and it took 3 calls before it was fixed.

We stay at this hotel I am sorry but it’s not a 4 star hotel It’s a dated hotel,bad breakfast, The staff was very helpful,the room are small and dated,bad lighting, Bed was good, Food was so bad,but staff was helpful in the restaurant

We just came back from our vacation yesterday. The first thing we wanted to do (after unpacking and catching up on sleep) was to write a review for Golden Central Hotel. We stayed there for almost a month, and this is our fifth year staying at this hotel for our annual trip. We usually do a tour from Ho Chi Minh city to Ha Noi with many stops in between. We have stayed at many other hotels on our tour, and Golden Central Hotel so far keeps us coming back to them whenever we come to the city. All the previous reviews already stated how wonderful management here were. I can not be anymore pleased with the way our family were treated. During our long stay, not one day that we came back to the room, and our beds were not nicely made, or the room was not spotless clean. I am surprised that some reviews complained of outdated facilities at this hotel. Our room has a modern bathroom, beautiful bed, and at decent size. Complimentary hot breakfast with a full coffee bar and juices!! Menu ranges from eggs, ham, toasts, croissants to authentic Vietnamese noodles soups (chicken vermicelli soup, egg noodle soup with charsiu, etc). To top it off, there is an indoor pool. The weather in vietnam can get so hot, and jumping into a pool can be heavently at times. The pool was never crowded when I was there. Actually, most of the time, we had the huge pool to ourselves. We will keep coming back to Golden Central for their clean room, great service, friendly employees, and yummy breakfast. Hung Pham and Kim Nguyen
