Neat & Tidy hotel with great location”
I had a pleasant stay in Huong Sen hotel. It is not a big hotel and many taxi driver mistook that with Bong Sen (Lotus) hotel. The hotel itself looks quite old, even the furniture do not look new too. However, everything is clean and my room has a very good view at the Dong Khoi street. The hotel location is great, right in the centre of Ho Chi Minh city. Within walking distance, you can go to Ben Thanh market, Vincom centre, or many other great historical places around. The free breakfast is so so, and I did not have time to check the gym and pool but the massage service is good. The masseur is very skillful and I almost sleep in the massage room. Nice hotel and I will come back here if I have another business trip in Ho Chi Minh city.
Nice hotel in great location with friendly staff”
I stayed for 7 nights and enjoyed my stay. The rooms are very clean and staff are very friendly. The buffet breakfast is very good with a vast selction of food. The staff were also helpful in recommending a good place to exchange money and also helped me with activating my sim card in my mobile phone as I did not understand the vietnamese instructions. Nothing seemed too hard for them to assist me. The location was great and I easily walked to the river, shopping plaza's and some of tourist atractions. If you are coming to Ho Chi Minh City I would recommend you stay at Huong Sen Hotel. You will enjoy your stay too.
Huong Sen Hotel is a pleasant 3.5 star establishment at 66 Dong Khoi Rd, District 1, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. It is not far from the river, and has many nice restaurants nearby. Must try the ‘Bier Garden’, near road to Sheraton Hotel. Reception staff were efficient, prompt and looked happy in their job. English spoken. Concierge staff reacted quickly to requests for taxis. A moderate-sized swimming pool on the roof was accompanied by a bar, large seating area and a decent spa/massage area. Roomy breakfast area décor was inspired by 1920’s French interiors. A fair selection of food, with omelette chef. Waiting staff excellent. Room service quick to respond to late-night requests. Lift/elevators needs to ‘ding’ when doors open, because it is so quiet that I missed it several times while waiting with my back to the door. Rooms with balcony are preferred. Good glass on windows keeps out road noise. Extremely high bath with shower not so good for people with limited mobility. Number ‘1’ blue bus nearby for travel to large markets.
Nice quiet hotel at the good end of town.”
Great stay, the staff were friendly, helpful and all the ones I encountered communicated well in English. The hotel and rooms were clean and quiet, which is a great relief after being in the city streets. The pool is small, but very well maintained and a great way to cool off at the end of the day. The hotel is at the nicer end of Ho Chi Minh city, so good for upmarket shopping, but a bit of a walk to the Ben Tanh market or the backpacker district. Good for seeing the Rex Hotel rooftop restaurant, the Cathedral and the post office etc. Would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
Huong Sen Hotel is very ideally located, being in district. It's walking distance to shopping centers and to Ben Thanh Market which sells a variety of goods at reasonable prices (if you know how to bargain). It's also near most of the tourist spots in Saigon. The hotel staff are very accommodating, always willing to help and they speak and understand English. The guest rooms are spacious enough and are being cleaned everyday. The breakfast spread is also quite good but it would be better if the breakfast time could be extended until 10 a.m.
Good hotel in a Good location Nice Staff!”
My stay was very nice. I had previously stayed at the Boung Sen hotel across the street. I preferred the Huong Sen hotel. There is no carpet in the rooms so that the floors are able to be cleaned properly. I had a balcony so that I could hear the heart beat of Ho Chi Minh city. The only thing is they had used flip flops in the room for guests to share??? That is unsanitary and just nasty! Other than that my stay was good. Not a great selection at breakfast and the orange juice was watered down quite a bit so that it didn't taste well at all. Overall I would stay here again if I went to Ho Chi Minh. I recommend this hotel and area. It is centrally located and there is nearby shopping and restaurants.
The feeling of being part of history....”
i cant help but notice that the structure went way way back. they don't have big rooms in new hotels anymore but i enjoyed the space huong sen offered in the rooms. i had a very lovely terrace. the staff was incredible. despite language problems, they were very patient with me so as to give my requests.being located in district 1 made my work more easy. i was also able to shop in the quaint stalls surrounding the hotel. i love the restaurant across the street. house of vietnam? where authentic vietnamese dishes were served. i felt like i was a part of history
Great servic and great central location.”
Hotel lived up to all the good reviews on Agoda. Good size room, clean and comfortable. Roof top swimming pool perfect for chilling out after heat of the days shopping. Central location to all the must see of Ho Chi Minh. Close to ferry for trip to Vung Tau to experience the pleasure of sea front lounging. All in all a good hotel to experience to vibrancy of Ho Chi Minh that leaves you with cash to spend on touristic cargo!!
Good clean hotel ”
We had a pleasant stay in this hotel with an upgrade to a larger room,although the room had large windows on the second floor the room was quiet and comfortable, the double glazing blocked out the street noise. The hotel is located near most attractions of Ho Chi Minh City District one
Great location but variable room quality”
we stayed at the huong sen hotel on 2 separate locations during our stay in vietnam. for both of these stays we booked a super deluxe room however the quality of these rooms differed significantly for each stay. the first night the room was quite dated and dark. we reported that our air con wasnt working properly and someone came to fix it within 5 minutes. we were given a significantly better room in the hotel on our second stay. this room was much bigger and much more modern (reflecting the photos of the deluxe room on agoda). overall the hotel staff were really helpful. there was a lot of choice at breakfast and the hotel is in a great location in the dong koi area and so near to a lot of attractions. the rooms were clean and there was free internet use (with printer) in the lobby. our only small complaint was the variation in room quality of the super deluxe rooms. we also stayed in the oscar hotel and the tan huong long hotel. both of these hotels are located very close to the huong sen and seemed to be better value for money.
Good hotel; excellent location”
I ended up splitting my time between 2 hotels in Ho Chi Minh City. This was the better of the two. The room was nice, although not quite so elegant as the pictures on the website suggested. My only complaint was that the wi-fi signal was very weak in my room and sometimes I lost it. But on the whole I was very pleased. The location was central, the breakfast (Asian and Western) was excellent, and the staff very helpful.
Central location, clean rooms excellent staff.”
great location, very friendly staff, great buffet breakfast. room very comfortable and spotless. the front desk staff especially oanh was terriffic, always smiling and nothing was a problem. the room cleaner, que,was a lovely lady too. i would highly recommend this hotel to our friends in australia looking for a nice central hotel in ho chi minh city.
I stayed at Huong Sen twice this month, and my experiences were nothing but excellent!”
I was very pleased with the service at Front Desk very polite, helpful and fast. The rooms were clean and looked presentable, lots of space. Breakfast had plenty of choices and is on a nice floor, top of the building. Overall experience was fantastic. The location is so convenient to do touring the city or shopping nearby Luck Plaza and good restaurants are everywhere near Huong Sen. I will come back again for sure. J. Nguyen, stayed at Huong Sen from October 11 to October 13 and October 22 to 24, 2018
Let me start with the main reason you should book this hotel RIGHT NOW - The rooftop breakfast buffet... It was splendid! Huge variety of local dishes, cold and hot. Egg and soup station. Congee was excellent. A lot of vegetarian options were available, although a plant based milk (soy, almond...) would be a nice addition. Hotel is old, it is exactly what you would expect of a 1980's east-asian hotel, but it is extremely well maintained and clean. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Location is perfect. Downtown Ho Chi Minh is very small and everything is easily accessible on foot. Many convenience stores around (Search Familymart or Circle K). Great restaurants in the vicinity.
Great location and a lovely breakfast”
had a great stay at the huong sen hotel, we stayed in a deluxe suite and it was worth the extra few dollars a night compared to the standard room (although the beds are quite hard). this hotel is in a great location with lots of shopping and walking distance to some sights. the hotel has a rooftop pool which is refreshing after a busy day sightseeing or shopping, it is hard to find a comparable hotel with the same room rates which have a pool. we would recommend this hotel.
Good central location”
I stayed here with my wife and another couple and we were all quite impressed by the Huong Sen. Only *** but perfectly acceptable. Rooms were a decent size and clean. Breakfast was excellent with superb bread and a very good egg chef. Massage facilities within the hotel were very reasonably priced. The location of the Huong Sen is excellent - right in District 1 very near the Sheraton, the Caravelle and the Continental hotels.
Great service from all ”
We stayed here nights, August 10-17, 2017. Hotel is exceptionally clean. Staff was fantastic. Maid service was very polite and cleaned our 2 rooms as best as one can aspect. Front desk was helpful whenever we needed information. All the doormen were just fine. We are not a family that need a doorman to open door for us every time so we are not picky if a few times we opened our own doors because a doorman was busy helping someone else. Hotel is from the French Colonial time and not the ultra new modern building design. We don't mind it a bit. It has a lot of character and history. And for its age, it has been well kept and cleaned. Location is as good as it gets. One block from Time Square, 2-3 blocks from Opera House, I can go on but it would be too long. Thank you Huong Sen.
Great Hotel, great location”
When i first saw the Huong Sen i must say i was impressed, and it just kept getting better, the facilities were Brill, as was being able to go for a swim on the rooftop pool when it was to hot for walking, only thing wrong with the pool for me was that it was to wee, 6.2m long, splash pool i suppose, still good,the Restaurant on the 7th floor where you took your breakfast was excellent, as was the breakfast itself, a help yourself/buffet, For me what made my stay feel so special was the staff, every single one of the staff that i had interaction with was really lovely, if i go back to Hanoi which i might do next year i would have no hesitation in booking back into the Huong Sen
great location in district one”
Great location in the heart of District 1 which from our experience was the nicest district to stay in. Walking distance to many restaurants and shopping. Rooms were very clean and secure. Front desk was VERY accomodating and spoke great english. They allowed us to store our bags from 11am to 6pm and constantly arranged taxis and directions for us so that we could get to our next location. Would definitely stay again. I also stayed at Duxton hotel in Saigon later in the trip and for the amount of difference in cost, I'd recommend staying at Huong Sen over Duxton. I'd give the hotel restaurant a pass, food was not very good and compared to the rest of the food in the area, quite expensive.
Great location, good price”
We had a great stay at Huong Sen Hotel. The hotel was in a really central location and an easy walk to everything. breakfast was really good and staff were very helpful. We arrived at 12pm at night and left at 6am and they were great with everything. Would definitely stay there again. Only little things as cons Pool a little small, very basic gym and beds a little hard (but if u like firm beds they'd be perfect for you).
