Nice Hotel with Pleasant Staff”

Good Staff and Great Tour Operators

i stayed four nights at the golden central saigon hotel and had a really nice stay. the hotel is a bit expensive and the rooms somewhat small, but they are nicely decorated and very cozy. mattresses are some of the best i have seen in south east asia. the pool is located on the top floor, which is nice to chill out and swim after a long day in ho chi minh city. hotel is also in a great location about 5 mins from markets and 15 minute walk to backpacker area.

Great Hotel in a Central Location”

Location, Comfort and Views

We stayed on the 11th floor of this hotel which was a great idea as you could not hear any outside noise at night at all (if you have never stayed in Ho Chi Minh before, this is something to consider as traffic noise is constant and very loud) The room was nice and comfortable. We had a drink on the rooftop bar next to the rooftop pool one evening and the views over the city were lovely. The breakfast area has 360 degree views through the windows and once again is a nice view in the morning (if you want to get a window seat, you might want to get up early as the hotel breakfast area was full when we stayed there). We also arranged a day trip to Mekong through the hotel and they were extremely helpful (Hoi An Express) and I have to say that this tour was one of the best of the holiday so we chose them again to book other tours at other stays around Vietnam. All in all, I would definitely stay here again if I come back to Ho Chi Minh but would encourage anyone to request a high floor room if only for the outside noise.

Lovely hotel and great location”

Great location; reasonable price; nice pool on the roof
Breakfast was OK but not great for Europeans

we stayed at the golden central hotel saigon for two nights, left our luggage there and spent a night in the mekong delta, and came back for two more nights. the hotel was perhaps not a 4-star hotel by european standards, but it was very nice for a moderate price. the furnishings were tasteful and looked quite new, the bed and bedding were excellent, the shower great with many water jets. everything was very clean. there were coffee making facilities in the room, a safe which is particularly helpful when sightseeing, nice bathrobes for the pool and even a scale should you need to weight yourself! the pool was a bit small but nice and clean, and there were never too many people. they had fitness equipment (stationary bike, treadmill, elliptic machine and weight bench) outside right next to the pool - not an ideal location but nice to have. the staff were very helpful, although sometimes their english was not that good. we paid one-half our room rate to check out at 6pm for a late flight, so that was helpful. all in all, a very favourable stay.

Fantastic ”

I travelled through Ho Chi Minh city with my mum, we stayed here for 3 nights and i couldn't fault it. The breakfast was great, the room was clean, not outside noise. Right in the heart of the city, could walk everywhere. Also organised a cu chi tunnel and mekong delta tour with them and it was also fantastic our guide Loi was great he knew everything and more. Couldn't have asked for a better guide. Make sure though its with the hotel directly though as one of the concierge offered us a tour with a completely different company, not recommended by the hotel. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

Nice stay at the Golden Central”

Rooftop swimming pool, helpful tour desk staff

We enjoyed our stay at the Golden Central Hotel (3 nights) It is located near the Ben Thanh market, which is fun to walk through and do some souvenir shopping. The Unification Palace is within walking distance, as is the Ho Chi Minh City art museum (though the art museum in Hanoi is better, in my opinion) There are many restaurants on nearby Pasteur Road, and you are easily able to walk to the Bitexco tower. One lady at the hotel tour desk was very helpful in booking our bus tickets and ensuring a taxi was ready to pick us up the morning we left. The rooftop swimming pool is small in size, but great to cool down after a day of sightseeing. Each morning the buffet breakfast had lots of good things to choose from, and a made-to-order egg station. All in all, good value for money and a pleasant stay!

Greta location, good rooms”

location, price, bed

Our stay at the Golden Central was terrific, The location is 150m from the Ben Thanh Market, the main hub of district 1. It was easy to find, with abit of guidance from a passing tourist to locate the street. The hotel was very lean and tidy, the staff even visited each night to see if we required anymore towels. The bed was quite comfortable, not as hard as msot asian hotel beds. The breakfast was not too bad, a good mixture of western and local style foods, although we didnt try the restaurant for any other meals. We would definitely stay at the Golden Central again, and would reccommned it to any one else looking for a hotel in a central location.

Excellent staff and service and all-around value..”

I found the Golden Central staff to be extremely helpful and accommodating in every way from the Front desk down to the maids. The hotel is in an excellent location in Old Saigon within a short walking distance of both Tao Dan park and the the Ben Thanh market and food court. This hotel offers wonderful views from the 16th floor restaurant since it is the tallest building around. I also found the rooms to be more soundproofed and quieter than most in the area. Any problems or issues were dealt with and solved within minutes..My stay was over 2 weeks and I enjoyed every minute. I highly recommend you give them a try whether you are a regular or first time visitor to HCMC.

We both really enjoyed our stay at Golden Central Hotel Saigon. Its situated very close to all the sights i.e. ben thenh markets, saigon zoo, Rex hotel (amazing rooftop restaurant) and other sights in Saigon. The room was beautiful and food was amazing but a little pricy. Thats to be expected in the hotel though. All the staff were very accomodating and happy to assist whenever you needed.

Really good location in the middle of district 1.. We looked at a number of surrounding hotels and the Golden seemed the nicest and at a good price. Didn't eat there except breakfast (which was good) but there are so many nice restaurants and bars surrounding, it was nice to get out and have them on your doorstep. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and gave good advice on local restaurants and sites. We have already been back to stay again for a 1 night stop over in the city and are planning to do the same again in a few days.

Friendly staff, great view from breakfast buffet room, roof top pool

Commenced my trip with three nights in Saigon and concluded the journey with another three nights at the Golden Central Hotel. The room was in a great location and had the luxury of a swimming pool; which surprisingly is not that common in Saigon. The view from the breakfast room is outstanding and a great place to plot your foot movements for the day. Staff were friendly and the rooms were conmfortable however my gut feeling was that the price of the room was a bit too much for what you get.

We had two windowns to graps a view of the city. The breakfast offered many choices. The juice was fresh and REAL fruit not bottled one like other hotels we had stayed. As we could have our breakfast ar 17th floor we could see the city at the same time which was very beautiful.

Clean, modern, cozy, great location

You're paying more for Golden Central than nearby hotels on the same street, probably because Golden Central is larger, grander, and has facilities (rooftop bar/restaurant/pool, gym, etc.). However, the pool is very small, although the view is lovely from up there. The room itself is small (typical of HCMC) but well furnished. The furniture is wood, and the decor is warm and cozy. The best part is the crazy fancy shower system, which seems out of place, but you'll LOVE it. The location of the hotel is great, just around the corner from Ben Thanh market.

Staff, location, service

The Golden Central Hotel Saigon is central located in district 1. Major tourist attractions, shopping centers, restaurants and markets are in walking distance. The hotel is modern, the staff has good language skills and is friendly, attentive, supportive and competent. The room is modern and clean, well equipped. The breakfast is average to good, nothing is really missing but nothing special. The staff is young but friendly and attentive. The pool is small and no towels were available. Om the second day until my departure 2 days later, the pool was drained, no explanation given. You get a good value for your money, I would consider to stay here again.
