Victory Saigon Hotel3.0 out of 5.0

This is a state owned and run hotel. It certainly gives you an idea of the 'old days' - furnishings and hotel brilliant promotion material. It's certainly got novelty factor: from the grand decadent (and now slightly dirty and rough round the edges) dining room to reception. It's the kind of place that mid level state officials stay when in town from Hanoi and this is an interesting thing to be around. Especially breakfast or around the bar. Also small group tour groups use the hotel frequently - some love it others hate it. Nothing in between. The rooms are large and would have been considered luxurious and sophisticated - in the 1980s. Although the sleep quality is perfectly fine and wifi great, the rooms are worn and some less then spotlessly clean. The bathrooms are particularly problematic - as others mention - the showers bad design mean the floor can flood quickly. The toilets can inexplicably without a person in sight gurgle loudly, very loudly! Location: It's convenient for some central sights - for example war remenants museum is less than 5 minute walk. Whatever your view - good or bad - staying at Victory Hotel will most certainly be an experience
I stayed at the Victory hotel with my 14 year old son on the 5th and the 7th of August 2017. On the last night I woke up at 2 in the morning to find my son missing from our room without any way for me to contact him. I searched the hotel and could not find him. I asked the doorman and receptionist if they had seen him and they hadn't. I then asked the receptionist to please ring the police for me and he refused. Against my wishes he decided to ring our tour guide who by then had gone back to Hanoi. I spoke to the guide on the phone who said he would ask the receptionist to contact the police for me as he thought that was the best course of action, so I handed the phone back to the receptionist. Fortunately at that point my son walked back into the hotel. I then asked the receptionist to tell our guide (who was still on the phone) that my son was safe. He spoke a few words of Vietnamese and assured me he'd told him. However the next morning our tour guide rang and was very concerned. Apparently the receptionist had repeatedly refused to agree to inform the police saying it wasn't his job and when I'd asked the receptionist to inform the guide that my son was safe he didn't tell him and put the phone down on him. The guide then tried ringing several times in the night to find out how we were but the night receptionist would not answer the phone, so it was only in the morning that the guide found out that we were safe. The hotel very much has a tired, slightly tatty Communist government owned hotel feel about it, but the rooms are very clean as with every hotel I stayed in Vietnam. There was an iron burn on the carpet in my room which I don't think would have been tolerated in a better hotel. I would have given a 2 or 3 star review if I hadn't had such a bad experience with the receptionist.
The facilities are fine, and it is a great location - very central; & convenient But the hotel is unloved: it is clean, but faded and in need of some repairs & touching up. The staff are grumpy. This is the only place I ate in Vietnam where the food was not delicious. Not actively bad, but not recommended
The hotel rooms are ok for a 3 star hotel and there is a big swimming pool on the 6th floor. But the restaurant for breakfast is really dirty. All tableclothes are full with stains and the buffet tables are thesame. The intire restaurant looks not fresh. I dont understand that they dont do anything about this. Just scrob the floors every day and put clean tablecothes then it would look a lot cleaner.
For the price I thought it was great value hotel with friendly staff. All very clean and had a great breakfast menu. No issues recommending this place for a pleasant clean stay. The hotel is currently being renovated, it looks like they are doing one floor at a time. Don't forget it is 3 star so you pay for what you get.
This is the worst hotel we've stayed in on our tour. The rooms dated and smells musty and damp. The air cons not great and you have to pay for the pool which isn't acceptable when you're paying to stay there. If it wasn't part of the tour package I wouldn't stay here.
If you want to relax when travel you shouldn't stay here. I can't believe in HCMC have a bad hotel like it. We stayed here for 4 nights. But we didn't get smiles from the staffs. They're not helpful, not friendly and some of them impolite. Many securities but no bellman. We check-in around 5 pm. The lady at reception said with me you can't staying with this guest if you want to stay you have to book 1 more room. She think I'm a 🤣....? (The booking name is my husband but I'm Vietnamese my husband is foreigner). She shouldn't said that😂😂😂, she should asked me who i am. 😊 Previously guests were entitled to use all the facilities like the swimming pool and gym and also get a free breakfast. The pool was a major incentive to stay because it offered a nice moment to relax after the heat and bustle of the city. You also got to know fellow travellers. Have to pay if you want to visit the pool (never see before). My husband booked 4 nights from Bookings.com and as I was on the road we didn't check the small print as you assume things are still the same. We were now told that you pay for everything.The hotel room price was up and its was 60,000d/pax visit to the pool and 120.000d / pax for breakfast. The last night we check-out very early they're give us tickets for breakfast 🤣🤣🤣🤣.... but we returned for them The breakfast charge I might understand but asking your guests to pay for a swimming pool is like asking guests in your home to pay for using the toilet. We busy for our documents so we don't changed the hotel. Never anymore
Victory Hotel is located on the center of the Ho Chi Minh City. However, It's took 20 minute walk to Notre Dam Cardinal and the Central Post Office. The place offered a outdoor swimming pool and free WIFI. The room was out to date but clean. The only problem I had was the air condition is too small to cool the room.
If you are looking Low cost option in the heart of city center for back packers not a business hotel then this right place. Loads of options for food too..breakfast is ok ok and very local not international or continental .........
An average hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, located in the heart of city. Property is slightly old and some renovation is required. AC in the room is not effective. Good breakfast and service was also good.
- Free WiFi in rooms and public areas
- Free parking
- Onsite dining
- Outdoor pool
