      Am a frequent visitor to the city. Stayed at various hotels around the same location. Regretfully, this hotel’s management was found wanting to a legitimate complaint lodge. No action taken despite assurance given. Disappointed. Will take business elsewhere.

      Actually, i've stayed here many times. I gotta say, it's getting worse and worse. It's not clean at all, the reception doesn't know how to speak English, the poor soundproof that wakes me up in the morning. I would recommend this place before, but not anymore.

      My stay ”

      This is my second visit to Saigon. I stayed the same hotel because first experience gave me a good impression. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. From the reception to the waitress and to the concierge boys. Their morning coffee was very good and we bought their in-house coffee to bring home. The waitress was kind enough to share knowledge on how she brew the coffee. They serve limited types of food/less choice but no deny, their coffee was very good. Their morning coffee was very good and we bought their in-house coffee to bring home. Their concierge was very alert. Each time we went to wait for our grab car, they will come out and assist us. Either helping us in identifying our grab or reminding us to be careful with our bags. Housekeeping was so-so as I notice some items weren’t replenished the next day. During my stay, I notice there’s no make-up mirror in the room which is a hassle but on the last day of my stay when I decided to flipped what’s on the table and found out there’s actually a make-up mirror hidden. Maybe hotel should put a note, telling customer there’s a mirror on the table. I’ve also stated in my booking earlier that I wanted a twin single bed instead a queen bedded but the hotel wasn’t able to provide us with that. I hope the hotel can take note on this as booking and notes were done earlier. And again, thank you for hospitality. This is a recommended hotel.

      except for the small size of the hotel room (probably it is the smallest room that we have ever stayed in Vietnam), the rest is excellent; clean room, convenient location, short walking distance to Ben Thanh market, friendly staffs and good breakfast (they change the menu daily and we hv got a chance to try 3 different types of noodles during our 3-night stays there, the spicy beef noodle is so delicious).

      we booked 4 rooms. pros - 1) we love the location. very near to ben thanh market, and nice eateries. 2) the staff were also very helpful. 3) all the rooms were clean and the toilets were spacious. 4) breakfast was very good. cons - 1) the rooms were slightly small. space between bed and wall tv was really quite narrow. 2) the rooms that were on the higher floors were better - less noisy. we were allocated 2 rooms on level 1 , 1 room on level 5 and another on level 8. and those who stayed in the rooms on level 1 did not have very good rest because of noises from stray animals (which really is not the hotel's fault...). but the hotel office appears to be on level 1 as well, so when they go in and out early in the morning, our sleep was disrupted.

      Window-less bedroom of dreams”

      GK Central was wonderfully located in the heart of the city - very close to markets, attractions and restaurants. Staff was friendly and breakfast was fantastic. Protip - we paid extra for a bedroom with a window. Upon check-in, we realized the a "window" only equates to a sliver of window that looks into a brick wall. Opt for the cheaper room with no window. The breakfast had an made-to-order menu consisting of eggs, bacon, sausage, as well as a make-your-own banh mi station.

      I stayed at GK Central from 7 April 2019 - 12 April 2019. Hotel staff are really helpful and professional in handling any inquiry. They are quick to provide a local map that assists a traveller like me to visit most places of interest. Their location was so good that I was able to walk to most important landmarks and eat at the wonderful Ben Thanh Street Food cafe that would satisfy any tourist. This food place offered the best opportunity to taste all Vietnamese and Asian foods. I can personally recommend GK Central to any tourist looking for a great hotel at an equally great price. Fred B.

Great breakfast with nice alternating local dishes, nice make your own Banh Mi station, Eggs done the way you want and nice fruit offering. Rooms are nicely furnished with the basics and neat and clean. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Most staff have good basic English skills - much better than my Vietnamese skills!

      Everything's good except for the shower and WiFi”

      One little problem is that they have a badly designed shower so that the water leaks to onto the floor...I don't know if that's about the floor leveling or what but if I could adjust the angle of the shower head, that can be avoided. And we were on the 1st floor. I don't know if the room was secured by some kind of signal-blocked structure or what...the wifi just didn't work and either did my mobile data. We had made attempts and found out the only way we could get connected is to stand in front of the window and let the signal in. And the mobile data works properly when we got out of the room LOL The staff was very nice and the breakfast was the best I had in Vietnam...The location is just great. Just 1-2 mins from the market and a few more mins from the Independence Palace. Right at the city center. Good value for money in general.
