Panorama Room
Stayed 1 night in April 2017

Messed up my booking. ”

Was excited to have a memorable experience of Ho Chi Minh and booked the most expensive room: The Panoramic. When I arrived they gave me a twin room instead. I went back to the reception and explained that wasn't what I'd booked and paid for and they told me they were full and would give me another room and could give me the suite the following day., even though before they'd told me they were full when I'd asked for a second night. That first night they gave me the double room with a wall in front of the window. The second night they gave me a nice big room with park views, but it wasn't the suite advertised on Agoda with photos of a separate living area. I called the reception and was told that it was their panorama room. The room was nice and I was too tired to argue so I stayed. Breakfast is extensive, most staff are friendly and the rooftop views are amazing.

I'm very very glad about this hotel, and I found it worth staying here. Location is 5 min walk to binh tan market, very easy to find lots of food and shopping center. The staff working in this hotel were fantastic. I'm amazed by them with fast respond and their loving smile. Room was tidy, breakfast was good and the swimming pool on top was beautiful with a very nice view in district 1. Keep up the good job guys (staff of central palace hotel) , my next trip , I'll still stay there. Very recommend to all but suite individual. I'll give 10/10 .

Great location, wonderful stay.”

Central Palace Hotel is located across from the Royal Palace and close to surrounding attractions, shopping and dining options. The hotel is simply lovely and the rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. The hotel offered wonderful facilities which included an amazing rooftop bar and infinity pool which was a fantastic place to unwind and relax with spectacular views of the city. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, often going out of their way to offer assistance and ensuring our stay was great. We were even able to stay the first night, and then leave our luggage securely as we toured the Mekong Delta for a night and then returned for a further two nights stay. Would definitely stay here again and happily recommend it to all.

Stunning Lobby - a perfect stay”

Situated on a corner, the lobby was stunning from the outside as you are greeted by 3 huge crystal chandeliers. My heart was in awe that they have a big well lit Christmas tree. When I received my room, I was delighted cos it was more than I expected versus the amount I paid. A City view and a 48 inches smart TV, I almost wanted not to leave the room. (PS, you can request for the smart tv remote control and enjoy your Netflix or USB if you are tired with the cable channels - you're welcome). The breakfast was great and I was happy I included it. And most of all, it's just a walking distance to The Notre Dame Cathedral! Since I went on Christmas weekend and this is the most important part of my stay. Thank you Central Palace Hotel.

Great location”

We stayed as a family (two kids age 7 and 11) at the Central Palace Hotel. The location is perfect to explore the city: reunification palast, notre dame cathetral, central post office, binh tay market: all just a 5-10 minute walk away. The room was very clean and comfortable, although a deluxe double for 2 adults and 2 kids is because of the bedsize too small (one night was ok). Really excellent was the rooftop pool with an awesome view of the city - day and night and the breakfast buffet with a huge choice of asian and western food. We had a great stay in HCMC!!

Spectacular Views for Pool & Roof Terrace. Spot On Location ”

You can't beat the location, and you can walk to most things in District 1. This is a true four star hotel (not all hotels which advertise themselves are such compared to international standards). Make sure you book a city view room. If you do then will get get a fantastic panorama of the city skyline, which is magical both day and night. Another must is the roof top terrace on the 14th floor, (the pool is also up here), where you can drink in the views, day or night. The beds are really comfortable and the room I stayed in , had a lovely new bathroom. Breakfasts were great, too. I have been to HCMC many times and have stayed in many Hotels, there. Bt when it comes to the combination of factors such as budget, quality of rooms (mine was a large city view on a higher floor), ease of walking access to most of the local sights and value for money, then you can't beat here.

Quieter part of District 1, HCMC”

I have stayed in several hotels in HCMC and I selected the Central Palace Hotel as it seems to be located in a quieter part of town, which it was. It is directly across from the palace. However, all one needs to do is walk around the corner from the hotel to get into the thick of of the bars and restaurants. The restaurant had a good spread for breakfast. Taxi's are easy to catch, but I normally use Grab (the equivalent of Uber), which is more reliable and cheaper. I made the mistake of jumping into a taxi at the airport which wasn't the normal reputable companies such as Vinasun and Mai Linh. The meter showed VND 1 mil, which is 5-10X the normal price. Having been to HCMC before, I put up a fight but at the end of the argument, I still had to pay more than normal as the driver had my luggage in the boot, and I was worried he may drive away with my luggage if I got out of the taxi.

We chose Central Palace Hotel due to the amazing location - we walked to Tao Dan park to see the birds, the replica Notre Dame cathedral and the museum, so nice to be able to walk! It was also quite close to the airport - didn't cost too much for a taxi. The main problem we had was the noise - being such a central location meant that even on the 7th floor it was quite noisy, but I think basically anywhere in HCMC is gonna have this problem so I would suggest ear plugs! Breakfast buffet was great, iced coffee was so good. Thanks!

Central Palace Hotel experience ”

We chose Central Palace Hotel for the last two nights in Saigon, because we didn't want to pay an International five star hotel as we leave earlier in the morning. We found this one by the recommendation. The hotel is located in the center of downtown ( i assume), it is in District 1. It is very easy to reach any sightseeing places and restaurants. We didn't use the facilities. The room is okay, but it is noisy if you choose the City View room. The breakfast is not tasty.

Thank you for using the service at CENTRAL PALACE hotel and send to the hotel the reviews. For your suggestion about the noise, we are planing to make soundproofing for keeping quite room from outside hotel noise. As for breakfast, we will develop more dishes for you to have more choices later. Thank you and the hotel hope to have the opportunity to serve you in the next time.

Great hotel in centrally located area”

This hotel is in District One and centrally located. We picked the hotel because it is new. However, it appears it may have been a newly renovated hotel as there were little nicks in the room, but not bad. Overall the facilities felt new. The room is a very good size. The breakfast buffet had a very large selection and was really good. It is located on the second floor, so you see trees all around and felt like you are sitting in the green forest. It was really nice. The pool looks great. We were just so busy that we didn't have a chance to enjoy all of the facilities. Overall I would definitely stay here again.

The location is really central as the name implies: near to Ben Tanh market (5 min walk), near to Independence Palace (8 min walk), near to Barbeque Garden (5 min walk), accessible to transport (grab taxi or grab motorbike). We originally booked for two adults but since we were three, we were upgraded without extra charge except for the breakfast of the third person. Whenever we have a complaint, they immediately attended by sending their staff to our room.

Nice pool and great location”

Stayed for 4 nights. Highlights were the pool and an awesome breakfast with so many options. Try the omelettes!! Pool and bar have a great view, particularly at night. Room was decent but still a little noisy, so would probably recommend park view rooms. Located very centrally overlooking Independence Palace and very close to markets etc. The main negative for us was when I was trying to book a hotel pickup but a number of reply emails from me went unanswered. Being newbies to saigon, we ended up getting a little scammed by a taxi but it still ended up being cheaper than the hotel transfer. I'd still be happy to stay again.

Pros - Very friendly and helpful staves. I like that they smile a lot. :) The bell boys were really helpful and proactive (not bcoz of the tip), but you can sense their willingness to assist their guests. The receptionist also took note of my request to switch to another room. I was amazed with their fast response time ( seriously, it was really fast). The rooms were clean and well maintained. I liked the fact that they put labels on the hotel souveneir items. For me, it is a proactive approach. The food was superb too. I see myself going back to this hotel in the future. :) Thank you Capital Palace!
