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!!!

We stayed at Golden Central for a couple of nights. It's a recommended hotel as it is located quite central with walking distance to the attractions and the Ban thean market. With friendly staffs always willing to give their assistance throughtout our saty made it very pleasant. A good choice with good value for money.

This was the most expensive hotel on the trip and by far the worst. The room was a shoe box and the pool was a bit of a bodge job, the view was good from the roof though. The staff just wanted to relieve you of more money. Also incurred a mysterious service charge of 10% which isn't mentioned on... More

We stayed at the Golden Central for a couple of nights and had a wonderful stay. The bathroom was great, and has a very fancy shower - foot, head, and six micro jets. Very cool! The staff were really helpful and even helped us out of a bind, massive thanks to them! Breakfast itself was delicious. Had a wide range... More

Stayed here for two nights at the start of our tour of Vietnam with Mercury Direct. Nice little hotel, well located. Our room was of a decent size but was a little worn and could have been cleaner. Had a problem with the shower & room safe and staff responded quickly to put things right. All staff very helpful &... More

Stayed here 3 nights as part of tour. Very convenient position close to the Ben Thanh Market, eating & drinking. No problem with any street noise, we were on the 7th floor. Room compact, clean, looked over to other buildings. Problem as there were not many power points to use for charging. No hairdryer in this hotel. Restaurant on 17th... More

Spent three nights in hotel, very helpful staff, nothing too much trouble, even helped us across the road when we wanted to go out! Why did we need help, because Ho Chi Minh is a city with ten million people and seven million motorbikes and scooters. Great view from the restaurant on top floor and nice to have a small... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was great. You are located a 2 blocks away from the Market and you are right in the centre, this was perfect for us. The hotel is clean, good wifi connection and comfy room. The room is not very big but its a good size. The view is stunning! Specially from the... More
