This hotel is located in the heart of the City. Good location, good price. Walking distance to Masjid and Halal Restaurant near by. Receptionists are friendly & polite. Need to improve the breakfast system. Coz Doesn't mention what are included in fried rice or noodles. Life is quite old too.

This will be a good location hotel for medium budget. Located in the heart of city, everything can be found around especially good restaurants and bars. The only negative point is its an old hotel, and smelly for the first time you got into the room.

Excellent breakfast buffet - although they were unable to poach eggs. Internet show but that is pretty common in Vietnam. Traffic is very bad and local taxi rides are very slow -... More

The location is great close to Sheraton and SSI which is in district 1. It is in downtown area. The room is clean even it is a bit old. Staffs are very nice and helpful. Wifi is working very well. This is better than average.

I have an opportunity to stay at this property. Bong Sen Hotel has a well appointed room overlook the city of Saigon. However, the service is average at best. The hotel has relatively old appearances. Comparing to other property at the same prices, it is clearly that Bong Sen is a bit more expensive. The real complain I have is... More

Bong Sen was the perfect place to start adventures in HCMC, walking around district 1. The breakfast is the best I had all trip, and started my day off right every time. There are multiple coffee shops within a block, and we were within walking distance from all important sites I visited within district 1. Rooms were clean, turnover was... More
