nice hotel but small rooms
location, service
with the tallest building next to the hotel, can easier on the way back from walking around. and its at a savier location compare to those near market. the hotel is nice, staff were consider helpful. free wi-fi available,change of currency with them and even do some printing for free. and the housekeeping is good where they will do all the cleaning and arrangement. breakfast is so so, but can always search for some nice food besides the street near hotel. there is one just right beside with the suprising egg that must be a try at there.

Minutes from the river, in the central district, perfect location to explore Saigon. Rooms are clean, service nice, nothing overwhelming but solid.

Good modern facilties but cold showers
Relatively quiet location within easy reach of the action
We returned to the Au Lac Saigon three times during our holiday. Came to like the more sedate location away from the crowds and mayhem of the backpacker district. The Bitexco tower directly across the street makes for a useful landmark all over HCMC. The rooms are on the small side but generally okay. The lobby, restaurant and computer area are spacious and pleasant. The almost always cold showers were our one complaint.

Located Near Major Streets/Attractions
Near major streets
The room was adequate for 1 person, not huge. The location itself is the main selling point because it's just several minutes walk from Nguyen Hue and the saigon river. The bitexco tower is also nearby. Morning breakfast buffet was pretty good.

beautiful hotel with friendly staff
We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is spotlessly clean, spacious and nicely furnished. The staff were always friendly & helpful. Lots of great restarants close by and an esay walk to many attractions e.g. Ben Thanh market, war remnants museum. Highly recommend Au Lac Hotel.

Great location with friendly staffs
The location is very close to the center of tourists' attraction, the free wifi connection is excellent, the staffs are friendly and attentive
Au Lac Saigon (or Au Lac 2, as there is another branch of Au Lac Hotel located in district 3 of Ho Chi Minh City), is a real value for money. Located in a small and quiet street, but very near to the main tourists' attraction of HCMC. Must-visit places like Opera House, Reunification Palace, and the War Remnants Museum are all within walking distance from the hotel. The breakfast is quite good. The staff are friendly and attentive to the guests. The hotel itself is quite small, but very cozy with a homey atmosphere. Plus, the free wifi connection is excellent. However, when I got there the first night, for unclear reasons they try to move us to the other Au Lac for the first night (our reservations are for 3 nights) even though our reservations are confirmed . After my niece insisted that we do not want to move to the other Au Lac even only for one night, they finally gave our rooms and apologize to us, and there were no problems at all with the rooms. Apart from that incident, our stay in Au Lac Saigon had been great.

Great Location and nice hotel
Location is good, staff all are good with good english
Hotel is comfortable and clean. Staff were good. Super fast check-in. Under 1 minuite I think! Close to lots of places in district 1 and 3, and also near river. The hotel is opposite the Bitexco Tower so makes for an easy landmark if trying to get back at night.
