The real drawcard for this hotel is its central location and for the location its a reasonable price and although there are others in the area demand exceeds supply which may explain the managements arrogance and indifferent attitude to guests which I will elaborate a little later. The rooms are on the small side but for the location and price...

Dear Guest. Thank you for your feedback after your recent stay with us. I have asked the engineering team to check the exit system or haft way out and make the necessary adjustments but nothing wrong, our hotel is non smoking hotel inside, but we recommend that to the guests who are smoke can do that at the exit door...

We stayed for 4 nights and while first impressions of the lobby and room seem to be at a 4 star level upon looking closer the hotel needs some work. The room is a good size but power points are in weird locations which make it difficult to get to. The bathroom was clean but I was really disappointed with...

Dear Guest. Thank you so much for staying at Golden Hotel Saigon and we are really sorry to hear that you had most unpleasant experience and not happy at all. Our hotel is 4 stars with the nice view over city so the price a little bit more expensive, can not compare the price with the street food, or convenient...

You will not regret the location of this hotel which is near to just about all the popular tourist sites in Ho Chi Minh. The photo used above makes the hotel look modern, but actually the furniture in the room is of an old fashioned, but classy in style. Otherwise, it is good but not a great hotel.

The location could hardly have been better, within easy walking distance of all the main city centre sights. The room was on the small side compared to other hotels we stayed in during the trip although we accept that maybe because it was in the centre. However, the lack of storage space in the room was a bit of a...

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Rooms are ok. Housekeeping needs to be more trained. Rooms are very clean but when they try to clean your room 3 times within 45 and you tell them you are sleeping as it is only 9.15. Perhaps I should have put dnd on the door. But when I put the sign to...

Have to say that this was the least impressive of all of the hotels we stayed at during a 15 day visit to Vietnam and Cambodia. Service was nothing like the standard we experienced in all other places, cleanliness doubtful, we saw staff accusing guests of stealing face-towels that they had earlier reported were not supplied with and also found...

Ok so the positives first... Location great, right in the middle of everything. Rooms were fine, clean and comfortable. And that's where it ends. We had an awful experience based on one incident and due to bad senior management (who never showed their face) it ended up far worse than it should have been. I went to use my foundation...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on December 31st and again on January 2-5. Although the hotel was very well located, we were otherwise disappointed with our stay. The rooms are old and dank. The first room we stayed in looked like someone had thrown furniture at the wall - literally every wall had significant markings. The walls...

Location is excellent in the first district and basically walking distance to most tourist attractions. Room was very nice, no noises from the street and superb bed. Bathroom was nice and well functioning as well. Breakfast was a disappointment regarding the usually very high standards in Asian hotels. Also the so called pool area was really a joke - big...

Where to start with the immense disappointment that is this hotel? This is not four stars, this is a roadside motel that should rent by the hour thats only saving grace is a good location. The "rooftop pool" is a plastic above ground pool in a ditch with a swim spa mechanism. The rubber bottom of this shallow disaster is...
