I stayed at the Golden for a total of six days at the beginning and end of my trip to Vietnam (May 2015). I could not of been happier with this hotel, my room was beautiful with a comfortable bed and lots of extra amenities. Much better location than the backpacker area, two minute walk to the Ben Thanh market.... More

Stayed here 2 nights as part of a tour, first hotel in Vietnam and very happy. Rooms were clean, staff were friendly and helpful, good choice of food, western and native tastes catered for. Restaurant was at the top of the hotel so gave excellent views of Saigon. The small pool was on the floor below the restaurant so again... More

Stay was okay. I think it's absurd to consider a 6yr old child an adult so you can charge for more money. My shower looked outdated compared to my siblings rooms. The grout looked dirty and not white anymore. I was concerned about touching the tiles. I had turned down the 7USD upgrade for a bigger bed that agoda had... More

This hotel was in a good location, the rooms were adequate for a city trip. The breakfast were good with a varied range of choices, most of the staff were very helpful. The view from the eating areas is breath-taking; you can see all across the city, its magnificent, day or night. The pool is the smallest I’ve ever seen... More

The room is pretty small but is definitely clean. And is just few minutes walk from the market, plenty of restaurant around the area. There's a bank next door so you can easily change your money conveniently. The breakfast was very good. Love the view at the restaurant.

Stayed there in June 2015. The hotel was clean, staff attentive and friendly. We had a great view from the room. Breakfast was adequate. Had lunch a couple of times in the restaurant food and staff were good. Pool on the top floor provided welcome relief from the heat and you can order drinks to have in the pool.

We stayed a week here. The staff were professional and very helpful. The location is great. The rooftop pool was a welcome refreshing treat at the end of the day. Pool is very small but has a lap-swim-machine so you can swim laps against the current. It can be crowded at the end of the day but if you time... More

This hotel is central to City Centre, has good facilities all you need in a deluxe hotel with a good sized swimming pool. Staff helpful. Breakfast food was satisfactory but coffee was poor, tasted like chocolate! Restaurant was located at top of hotel so good views of city. All rooms had tea/coffee making facilities, fridge, wifi. All in all a... More

Pleasantly surprised by its location & high floors - great views on its top floor @ 17, day or night! Deluxe room comfortable & cosy. Major tourist sights r easily within reach - walk, taxi or rickshaw. There's even a bank next door for currency exchange! 😎

Lovely hotel in a good location. Rooms were clean and the staff were all fantastic.... Polite and very helpful. Nice pool area on the 17th floor, although quite small! Would definitely recommend the hotel for a base for exploring the city!!!
