great location. excellent free breakfast”

1. Great Location 2. Reasonable price 3. Excellent breakfast

We've been staying at the Bong Sen hotel during our last three yearly vacations. We are happy, given its reasonable price and great location. We did not really like the Massage service (on the 6th floor of this hotel). It's not very clean, and there is no separate bathrooms for women. The massage tables are covered with somewhat 'ivory' sheets that are used to be white. However, I somewhat think this Massage service was contracted out to an external vendor?? (because the white sheets in our rooms are cleanly white. It makes no sense why the sheets in the massage service are so old compared to those in our rooms??) Overall, we are thankful of such hotel price in such a great location. Of course, there a better 5-star hotels next door, but its room price is at least triple that of the Bong Sen's. Thank you, Agoda, for hosting/sponsoring the Bong Sen hotel. Best regards,

Perfect location, great stay.”

Courteous staff, nice breakfast & good location.

We arrived at 1:00 am but the staff managed to give us the 3 rooms reserved. The breakfast buffet spread is good, many items to choose from. What I like about the hotel is its location where you can walk and admire the city on your way to the night market or shopping centers. Ho Chi Minh City is beautiful with French style buildings, wide & clean sidewalks & pedestrian friendly. Add to this the local residents who are so courteous, kind and hospitable. We would love to come back next year and stay at the Bong Sen Hotel.

Good hotel in the heart of Saigon”

Location, breakfast, room with large window

We stayed at Bong Sen for 4 nights. We booked super deluxe balcony and were glad for the choice as it is so difficult to find large windows in Saigon hotels. The hotel staff spoke decent English and were always ready to help. They even offered us late checkout free of cost. The breakfast buffet was awesome with great choices, and even a live station. One of their restaurants also serves local cuisines in dinner buffet and it was absolutely delicious. The hotel location is perfect, with many attraction within walking distance. The area is full of shops, restaurants, massage centers, tour agents and night markets - and almost everyone speaks English. It is so unlike rest of the city where you hardly find English speaking people. Overall, we were quite happy and will definitely stay here if we visit Saigon again.

Great value in the heart of District 1”

I stayed at the Bong Sen hotel for this first time last week in Hochiminh City and was really impressed. This is an elegant older hotel in a perfect location. My room was spacious and clean. I paid a bit extra for a city view and had a room with a balcony overlooking the street below with windows that could open to let in the cool morning air. Hochiminh square is only a block away. I found an excellent Pho restaurant a short walk away. And almost every trip to HCM I eat a meal and enjoy cold beer in the Beer Garden of the Bong Sen (live music every night). For a new experience this time I visited the spa on the 6th floor and tried a fish massage. Where small fish nibble away the dead skin from your feet. fun! Staff was excellent and so was the breakfast buffet.

Excellent position, nice rooms

bong sen hotel is centrally located in district 1 of ho chi minh city, just opposite the (much more expensive) sheraton. the hotel is solid and reliable. staff are helpful and friendly. rooms are comfortable and quiet. plumbing is ok, but the step out of the bath-shower is a bit much. there is a decent health club with spa/sauna, etc and a newly renovated massage area. breakfast is only fair, but reasonable at a 3-star level. the area is a good shopping area, quite central with many restaurants and bars.

Bong Sen Hotel is located in the best area of Saigon. Good restaurents, bars and good shopping within walking distance. Can also walk to many of the local tourist attractions. This is one of the cheapest hotels in the neighborhood, but good value for the money. More expensive and nicer hotels all around. Many cabs available on the street and travel agents nearby. I would stay here again if I return to Saigon. Can walk to the BackPacker area where all the buses leave to other areas such a Mui Ne beach.

I stayed at Bong Sen Hotel with 11 other friends, so we are 12 people all together. Your hotel was referred by our Colleagues who are working at Cushman & Wakefield HCM City. It is surprise me that Bong Sen Hotel has almost all staffs understand English, which very rare happen in HCM City. All staffs that I met are very helpful and sweet, they show a real "hotelier/hospitality attitude" to all customer. Location is superb and the price is quite reasonable compare to the room standard which in my country with that kind of price could get better room condition. The most interesting part was when we need a scale to weight our luggage, your staff also could provide that!! Marvelous and that is the most helpful time for us. For me, i have recommended your hotel to all of my friends who are asking about where to stay at HCM. I hope you will have a very good year in the future and i have

Central location, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, clean room
A little dated but I am struggling now to find something negative to say!

The Bong Sen Hotel is on Dong Khoi Street, right in the heart of District 1. You step out of the hotel and right onto the streets filled with wonderful shops and restaurants and cafes. Our room was nice, clean and quiet. The staff were helpful and kind especially on the day we checked out because we weren't flying until that night and they let us have a room later in the day to shower and change our clothes before we went to the airport.

The Bong Sen hotel is one I'd return to, being central in District 1, which in itself is a bonus. Add to that the friendly, courteous, & efficient staff & you have a recipe for success. I forgot to bring a mains adaptor for my laptop, but was was supplied with one immediately after asking reception. The hotel's own restaurant is good value for money also. The only thing I could find fault with is the wi-fi in the bedrooms. Mine was non-existant for 2 days, but I could get access by sitting in the corridor outside.

Perfect location and an excellent hotel.”

Location, huge suite, good buffet.

We've stayed at the Bong Sen in the past. It has always been a positive stay. A couple of years past we were upgraded to the Bong Sen suite and we fell in love with it. It was quite large and perfect for me, the wife and our young child. This year we decided to bring the rest of the family along and booked 3 rooms. When arrived early and tried to check in at 12. We were told that only one of the rooms were ready and that the BS suite won't be available until 3. That was way past the 2:00pm regular check in time. I tentatively said O.K. and we waited in the available room. We didn't get the suite until 3:15pm. The other room smelled of smoke and I asked them to switch that room to another. They said that the room was a non-smoking room and there shouldn't be a smoke smell. I insisted and they had someone come up and spray it with something. I asked that person if she smelled smoke and she yes. After 20 minutes, the smell was still there and I had to go back down and insisted they switched us to a different room. They did so but they were not too happy about it. The rooms were nice and the BS suite is still the same. Unfortunately, the staff has changed since our last visit but we will return.

A pleasure to be so comfortable away from home. I have been staying at the Bong Sen for ten years so I call it my home in Saigon. The staff meet me at the taxi with big smiles and greet me by name. Bong Sen is a beautifully restored well kept hotel from the French era. Sometimes I get surprise upgrades for my loyalty. I know if I ever have a problem it is corrected quickly with no excuses. Just a delightful place to stay.

Sanctuary in Saigon”

Helpful staff.
One room we occupied only had light block type window (not very nice).

The Bong Sen Hotel was a sanctuary in a frantic city. When you walk into reception you are greeted by a fountain and marble floors (so calming after the mad mad outside world). The staff were so helpful in re arranging our travel itinerary because of unseasonable weather (THE WORST FOR 35 YEARS) The breakfast was freshly cooked and was above average. The Sheraton casino was just across the road. We would recommend the lemon grass restaurant just around the corner.

location right in the center of Dong Khoi Street -- prime spot at very reasonable prices
an old hotel, getting older despite recent attempts at renovation

I've been staying at the Bong Sen for more than 3 years now. The location is superb, right on Dong Khoi Street, which is as upscale a shopping and restaurant street as you can find in Saigon. The hotel is across the street from the huge Sharaton with all its amenities. And if you do careful trip planning, you can often find room rates at the Bong Sen for as low as $60, which is very cheap for the area. On the other hand, the Bong Sen is showing its age, and it looks downright shabby and "old-fashioned" compared to the other hotels built recently in Saigon. They've tried to remodel many of the rooms, but there's only so much you can do with a basically old building. And it's only a 3-star hotel. However, you do get decent prices, and a location that cannot be equaled. So it's up to you, as to what's most important for you...
