One of the reasons we enjoyed Ho Chi Minh so much”
We booked GK central hotel here in Agoda because it is one of the cheapest that looks good in pictures. I read some of the reviews and researched a little and thought maybe it is an "ok" hotel plus it has good reviews for the price it is asking for so we booked it. It was not an ok hotel . It was perfect. The staffs were very friendly especially the guy who helped us with our luggage when we checked in. He always smiles and always helpful. The receptionists and other staffs were very accomodating too. The design of the hotel is simple yet and elegantly clean but not to the point were you will get intimidated about wearing flipflops in the lobby. It is a small hotel and I liked it that way. We got twin beds so the room looked smaller but the space was perfect for us and our needs. We kept admiring how they designed it to maximize the space. Free coffee (vietcup, hey GK can you tell me where to buy this? So good for an instant coffee), tea and water inside the room (the usual, also shampoo and others ). The bathroom is spacious and clean. We got free breakfast. I loved the food, only few choices unlike the big hotels, but for the low price that we paid they got the basics checked and tasted good too. Buffet style with Vietnamese coffee (iced, hot ot with sweet milk), how-do-you-want-your-eggs, salad with diff dressings, soup (changes everyday), fruits, cereal, bread, and different cooked food that also changes everyday. So we couldn't asked for more. We were always full before going out and exploring the city. The location of the hotel is very accessible, should you need a cab just walk outside. We prefer to walk. They gave us a map and used it as our guide. We walked to Pham Ngu Lao street, The Reunification Palace, War Remnants Museum, Notre Dame Basilica, Post office, Saigon Market 1, Ben Tanh Market, City Hall and Saigon Opera House. I just wished there are 2 pillows per bed hahaha. We will surely stay there again if we get a chance to go to Ho Chi Minh again.

If you are a person that able to walk from KM to KM, then you might able to explore almost the whole city of Ho Chi Minh of its city attraction. GK Central Hotel is a recommendable place of comfort without much noises, if you are planning to visit for your holidays. Check out by google GK Central Hotel.
3* hotel but their service was of 4-5* quality!”
Having read through other people's reviews of GK Central, we decided to book a Premier Deluxe Double Room Balcony for their "book now pay later" offer that they had on at the time. Upon checking in, they gave us room #502 with the balcony facing the main road of Lý Tự Trọng, which was just perfect as we get to see view of the city as well as the Bitexco Financial Tower in the background. GK Central was built in 2013 with modern furnished rooms overlooking the hustle and bustle Ho Chi Minh's city streets. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and what I love most were their upgraded amenities, including the international power sockets in various locations of the room! The hotel offers free LAN and Wi-Fi access in all the rooms - Wi-Fi speed tend to be faster during the day and a bit slower later in the night. GK Central situated near the East Gate of Bến Thành Markets (less than 5 minutes walk from Lý Tự Trọng & Thủ Khoa Huân corners) The hotel offers a variety of Western and local cuisine breakfast options and daily specials, which were included in our room reservation. The highlights of GK Central were how friendly and accommodating the staff was! We would definitely stay at this hotel again next time we go back. The location, amenities and staff friendliness were exactly what we were looking for!
Great location great staff”
Very convenient location as Ben thanh just round the corner, walking distanc to most city attractive , just get a copy of surrounding map from front desk.most room in Ho Chi Minh city is small due size of land but we're not shopper so room is find for us as long is clean. Gk central- keep up the good work. Pick-up / send off provide by hotel right on time. Took a tour package from hotel to Mekong Delta (My Tho) and we enjoy it. Lobby boy full of smile and helpful. Will stay again when back to Ho Chi Minh city.
For a brief stay in Saigon, the GK Central was near all the main tourist/historic sites in Ho Chi Minh City. Walking was the way to go. The hotel is also conveniently near a stop for the $1 #109 yellow airport bus into town (the return #109 stops by the Ben Thanh Market, also just a 5-minute walk). Took a "Grab" taxi back, which the friendly hotel staff arranged. The room was big, clean, and inviting. We had a balcony room and enjoyed the extra space and view. The breakfast buffet was delicious, and made-to-order eggs are included.
Good & Execellent Stay”
This is our first time to Ho Chi Minh City, GK Central Hotel have a wonderful stay for 4 nights. Hotel staff is very polite. Hotel provide simple and nice breakfast. Very nearby Ben Thanh Market and get a good shopping for day & night time. Our room very clean and the bed is comfortable for stay. We will come back again and choose to stay here again for our next trip. And i will recommend this hotel to my friends and relatives. Only things that they still need to improve their English Language.
Stay here - best 3 star hotel”
Amazing hotel! Price is really reasonable considering what you get. The location of the hotel is within 5 minutes stroll to Ben Thanh Markets - and the right side of the market too, without having to cross crazy streets. Taxis were always available on the street, plenty of excellent food choices within easy reach including the Street Night Market for tourists and a few restaurants more frequented by the locals such as Com Tam Moc and the deli. Also within easy walking distance to new Japanese shopping centre Takashiyama. Rooms were very new - floorboards and tiles always clean. The bathroom I had was great too - good water pressure, clean and study toilet, big basin and shower doors that sealed properly instead of a shower curtain; always appreciate modern bathrooms. Beds were comfortable and soft, air conditioning was strong, couldn't hear too much street noise either if you stay not facing the main room even from Level 2. Breakfast was great - not a huge selection, but I prefer quality over quantity. There was a daily changing noodle soup, as well as the eggs menu, cereal, juices/tea/coffee, bain marie of other dishes, salad bar and dessert/fruit options. Staff were very accommodating - happy to make phone calls to local businesses on our behalf and even to arrange free upgrades when not fully booked. The bellboys were great as well - actually had smiles and were genuine and friendly! After travelling around Vietnam and visiting 4 other hotels which were 4-5 stars, I still rate GK as best because of location, staff, breakfast and the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms. Would stay here for sure when next in Ho Chi Minh.
Good location, Friendly Staff ”
This is my 2nd time staying at GK hotel , its location is near to Ben Thanh market and the Street Food Market . I like the personal touch from the staff , front desk,, concierge and the bkfast restaurant . As we were out all day , not having a window view did not bother us . The room was very clean , the king sized bed was firm , and we got extra pillows ipoh our request. Getting around by taxi is easy ,the road in front of the hotel is not very busy . And the staff are very willing to help us call. A taxi for us . I will highly recommend my friends to stay in GK hotel when in Ho Chi Minh City.
Dear Mr./Mrs.Khuan , Thank you for your feed back. Your opinion was valued to us and we will try our best to make our guest happier. Wish you the beautifull and best life. Gk central hotel management
Good Hotel to stay, Recommended.”
Im from Malaysia, first time i visit Ho Chi Minh was in April and i stay at Lavender Hotel. I feel that hotel is quite good with the services and location but there is some inconvinience matter happen. For my September 2015 trip to Ho Chi Minh, i booked and stay at GK Hotel, and if compare to previous hotel i stayed, this hotel is much more better in services and cleaness aspect. Staff are friendly, warming greet especially the receptionist girl, explain everything till understand. Breakfast are average, location is good. Will stay in this hotel again for the next visit to Ho Chi Minh. Tumb up.
This hotel is centrally locate in the city, near shops, restaurants and night market. The room is quite small, but they serve you great breakfast. But Ho Chi Minh City is total disappointment, it is a very dirty city, lack of public transportation, this city has no future at all. It is not a civilize city, They throw all the rubbishes to the street, you will not able to find garbage containers in the city. This city full of motor cycles rampage in the city. Everyone in city want to cheat the foreigner, which include taxi, restaurants and shop. They charge lot more money for the foreigner, I will never go back there again.
Comfortable, convenient and classy”
We booked literally 40 minutes before we arrived on the step of the GK Central Hotel in HCMC. We were immediately greeted by the friendly staff, and had checked into our room within minutes. We were pleased to find a tastefully decked out, appropriate room with an extremely comfortable bed. The free Wifi was very fast and we had no problems accessing it. Throughout our few days there, the staff were highly attentive and helpful, providing valuable local knowledge that helped us avoid a few of the scams presents in HCMC. We booked 2 tours through the hotel reception and everything went smoothly with those. Breakfast was a simple but well executed continental/Asian mix, including the option to enjoy the unique Vietnamese gravity filter coffee, and freshly cooked egg dishes (omelet, scrambled etc) upon request. In summary, we felt like welcomed guests by all staff, and could not ask for any more in an extremely well priced budget hotel. I would recommend the GK Central to singles, couples, families and business travelers without hesitation.
Value for money ”
GK Central is probably one of the best 3-star hotels. The rooms are clean and modern, internet access is good. Ben Thanh market is just a 2-minute walk, access to the Opera House and adjourning area is just about 15 minutes by foot. For breakfast, although not great variety of food, but sufficiently good standard. You have to place an order for the main course or for an additional bowl of Vietnamese noodles, so it's freshly prepared. And you have a choice of Vietnamese specialty coffee. The air-conditioning in my room is good, only that water seeps through the bathtub. The staff is entertaining and when I asked to buy some instant coffee same as the brand used by the hotel, the staff is so nice to get a pack for me for a reasonable price. Only minor inadequacy when I tried to book the hotel's private car for transfer to airport, the staff told me the next day that this was not available. For the price paid, GK Central is "value for money" and I have no further complaints for a 3-star hotel at such price.
Thank you, GK Central Hotel!”
I stayed at GK Central Hotel for three nights and it was perfect. I’ve booked a Superior Double room for the price of $27 dollars a night and it is the same quality of a five star hotel around that district. I had stay at plenty of hotel around that area to compare the quality. The staffs at GK Central Hotel are nice and friendly. They accommodated my schedule changes at the last minute and didn’t charge any fees. I’m very grateful for that. There are plenty of restaurants around the area and short distance walk to Ben Thanh Market. I would stay at this hotel again. Thank you!
New hotel in district 1 ho chi mihn”
There are a lot of hotels to choose from in district 1 of Ho Chi Mihn but I would stay at GK again because it was a new hotel at affordable and competitive price to the others. The breakfast buffet was a lot nicer than other hotel chains. The service was good. Rooms are clean with near new facilities. The rooms did not smell of smoke like other hotel rooms which claim to be "non smoking."
3 thumbs up for GK Central”
Had a wonderful stay at GK Central as it's location is very centralized and a short walk away from Ben Thanh Market and other tourist attractions. We enjoyed the breakfast, which served both Vietnamese and Western cuisine.The rooms even though quite compact in size, it was very comfortable and clean. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. The only downside for us was that they only gave 1 room key card and after trekking all over the city, the room felt warm as it took too long to cool down. All in, GK Central Hotel is value for money and will definitely recommend friends to stay there.
Superb Customer Service”
We arrived early on 14 Dec. We left our things at the concierge to explore the city. The location is at the heart of HCM. Hotel staff showed us the places that we can go nearby aside from our prepared itinerary. When we went back, our room is ready and we checked in. The room is neatly prepared, just perfect for couple. Breakfast is great! We stayed for 1 night since this is just a side trip for us going to Hanoi. our flight is at 1pm and during checking-in at the airport, we noticed that our laptops are missing. Then I remember I left it at the hotel counter. I called the hotel and in no time, the hotel staff brought the laptops in the airport. Kudos to all the friendly and accommodating staff of GK Central Hotel. I will definitely recommend your hotel. Til we meet again :)
GK Central stays true to its name, its a very centrally located hotel, all the tourist attractions are within 10-15 minutes reach of the hotel. I stayed in a deluxe room which had 2 small window (facing the alley) and a beautiful bathroom . The bellboy was very friendly and he has some good deals for tours around HCM. I highly recommend you to book your tours from him, we booked the Cu Chi tunnel tour from him and its an absolute joy of a trip. I will return to this hotel again if I ever had the chance to come back to HCM City.
Another great stay ”
I think I got an upgraded room. I like the breakfast here. Not a great range but what's there is of good quality. Very happy with gk central, it's always my first choice hotel in ho chi minh city.
It was definitely an enjoyable one. This was my second visit and so coincidently I was given the same room that I stayed before. Definitely will stay at GK Central if I were to visit Ho Chi Minh again.
Excellent little hotel”
This hotel was convientiantly located and very quiet with no construction work going on around it, (which can be a problem in ho chi),and only seconds away from Ben Thanh market! The staff were all helpful, professional and friendly especially the luggage boy.We stopped in one of the signature rooms with a queen balcony which was very nice, modern and spotlessly clean, Further into our holiday we returned to ho chi and made the mistake of trying a different 3 star hotel which was a massive disappointment and more money compared to gk central.If you are looking for a stay in a small hotel in ho chi I definitely recommend this hotel as I doubt you will find Another 3 star at resembles this!! The only one thing that may of been a bonus would be a rooftop pool, which would have definately made this great hotel even better....But you can't have everything I don't suppose - would return to this hotel without a doubt.
