Victory Saigon Hotel3.0 out of 5.0

It seems a lot changes in three years... Firstly, and very important the swimming pool is a public swimming pool that hotel guests now have to pay $3 to use... This is an outrage and should be clearly displayed as a paid facility and not hidden in terms and conditions. Secondly the place is an electric hazard... See picture. Linen is old and bathrooms smell mouldy. Decor is dated and carpets are dirty. Staff are friendly and breakfast is great. I was prepared to compromise on the location due to the swimming pool, but considering the above, rather stay at a hotel closer to Bui Vien.
Excellent hotel. Value for money, rooms were clean and comfortable. The location was perfect and everything was within walking distance. There’s some excellent restaurants nearby and it’s only a 20 minute walk from the markets. Staff were very helpful and did their best to accommodate us. Breakfast was included and had a buffet style selection, excellent to set you up for the day. Would definitely stay again!
Stayed here for a week. Breakfast is good. Rooms are big and spacious. It is walkable to many tourist sites nearby. The staff are generally helpful and polite. There's a supermarket nearby you can buy snacks.
After reading reviews I was cautious about this hotel, but reality exceeded these expectations. They don't have connecting rooms so my daughter & I stayed in one while my husband was next door with our son. The beds are hard but still comfortable & the bathroom (shower over bath) while old older was cleaner than the hotel we stayed at in Melbourne before our flight. Tickets for the pool are easily purchased at the business centre, lessons for locals are held after school so it can get busy. I would not hesitate recommending this hotel for a night or two. It's location sets you in the real Saigon with great eateries close by.
This hotel allows you to leave your passport at reception. Passports may be necessary in business, and it is not suitable. I was a non-smoking room, but a cigarette was left in the trash bin of the room. The hotel is old and the facilities are minimal, but the room fee is not high, so I think that it is average level. The location is good for sightseeing. The breakfast is a buffet and the kind is average. I stayed for 2 nights, but breakfast tickets only give me one night at check-in. I bother bringing the room to the evening next evening, but it was annoying.
This hotel ruined our holiday. The hotel is waaaay too overpriced! And the rooms are nothing like the pictures online. All we got was a really small room wich smelled bad, matres of stone and a dirty bathroom. When we asked for the room where we payed for, the receptionist told us that there was no other room availble. When we walked around in the hotel, we saw several rooms wich were free. Eventually we got a other room, which was better but still nothing like the pictures. And it doesn’t have the things/service were we payed for. + still a old dirty room. The reason why we choose for this expensive hotel is because they have a pool. Later we found out we had to pay to use it. So we send a email that if we had to pay we would like to cancel it. Twice. No response. So a extremely expensive hotel wich is not even nice at all. I could have had a hotel closer to the Center, more beautifull and for 1/4 of the price of what i’m paying now!! Breakfast is only asian, which I don’t like in the morning. I am very upset because of this hotel. The staff is really unfriendly, Only the manager and one lady at the reception listen to us. All the other staff had a really bad attitude. Just when i thought this isn’t getting any worse, we wanted to use the swimmingpool wich we had to pay extra for. The man at the swimmingpool was the worst! He yelled something in Vietnamese to us. We gave him our ticket to the swimmingpool. When i shifted the bed to the only little space with sunshine, the man went crazy! He kept yelling at us in Vietnamese. I told him through Google translate i would put it back when i was done. He just kept yelling. What a awfull man. We took our tickets and left! Than when we wanted to hand in the swimmingpool tickets the receptionist said I couldn’t and had to pay for it. But when I spoke to her on the phone she said it was ok. It was just a little piece of paper, why can’t I hand it in?? I’m not going to pay for walking to the 6th Floor, get yelled at and return! This hotel is taking your Money for anything they can possibly charge you. Such bad service. Never in my life i’ve experienced such rude people and a hotel so overpriced and this bad. Victory hotel, great job ruining our holiday. I would like a response from the hotel, to explain all of this.
We stayed at the Victory on the last leg of our Intrepid trip. While comfortable enough, it was not as clean as our other hotels and the design of the shower made it impossible to avoid flooding the bathroom. On the plus side, our room was quiet and spacious, the air-conditioning worked well and the staff were friendly. The mattresses were very firm, but I quite liked that. (Interestingly, the hotel guide, which looks like it was designed in the 1950s, states the cost of replacing a stolen mattress as 18,000,000 vnd.) I would have rated the hotel as ok until we experienced breakfast. The restaurant is extravagantly decorated but instead of the usual assortment of dishes, the only edible fresh fruit was watermelon and the coffee was undrinkable. We remembered the kettle in our room, so rushed back, but there were no cups or instant coffee sachets in the room. A difficult way to start the morning. Staying at the Victory felt like being in a time warp. And a warning, there appear to be two engraved elephant tusks in the lobby. I hope they are fake!!
The rooms were okay. The poor things with this hotel is: 1. Very poor Breakfast 2. Very Poor english in reception 3. Pay to use the swimming pool. I thought it was a joke when i stood there in mu swimming suit with no cash on me. So i had to go back to the hotel room, get some money, go back to pay the man at the entrance. IF YOU want to go to your room to get something in middle of the swimming, they will not remember you when u return 10 minutes later, and therefore you need to pay one more time to enter the pool
It was good hotel 2o years back. It became quite old now. It is run by state thus most of customers are state owned organizations. It is typically hotel for state owned customers. Sometimes hotel has the tours of western visitor. It is not worth for 40 dollars price
This was the last hotel we stayed in during a family intrepid tour. Was in a good location right beside war remnants museum but hotel itself wasn't good. The pool is used for swimming lessons for the locals. The breakfast buffet was not very nice, and restaurant wasn't very clean. The rooms were not very clean and the hotel gave off a weird vibe. Wifi was good and so was air conditioning but would not recommend for families. Mini bar was very cheap but snacks were not very good.
