Very nice hotel just behind the market and within walking distance to all the sights. Very nice breakfast with a great view. Would definitely recommend this hotel as very good value. Staff were friendly and very helpful.

Booked on a "package deal" our 3 nights proved to be in an ideal location. Rooms were clean, but small, facilities worked well, the pool comfortable and breakfasts good! Downside was pricing of drinks! Sufficient street cafes nearby to enjoy HCM surroundings and a good location to see the local sights!

Golden Central is rated as a 4-star hotel. It has the official plaque declaring it as such in its rather sterile lobby. Ben Tanh Market is just around the corner and the major sites like the Reunification Palace, Revolutionary Museum, Vincom Center, etc. a short walk away. The rooms are spacious enough for two persons, considering Saigon's slim buildings. Some... More

The staff were very helpful, offering a welcome drink and allowing us to go immediately to our room even though we were a couple of hours early before check in, with the concierge giving us some tips for the city as he helped us with our bags.

Having spent two weeks inn numbers of different hotels in Vietnam this hotel is then most disappointing. It is old, outdated and in need of an upgrade. The rooms are shabby, the wifi is temperamental and the pool is woeful. Very basic hotel. The only positive I can find about staying here is the location which is pretty central to... More

Stayed at this hotel on two occasions, both rooms were clean with decent showers. One room overlooked the main road, but we slept well with no noise disturbance. Safe in all rooms along with tv, kettle to make tea/coffee and 2 bottles of water per day. Complimentary toiletries and towelling slippers. Breakfast was taken in the restaurant on 15th(?) floor...
