The hotel is in a great location within Saigon, an abundance of shops, markets, restaurants and landmarks nearby. The price and value for money is great and my personal favourite is the shower. After a long flight, these new age showers with steam sauna, lights, spa jets, various water heads and even a radio were my highlight haha

The view from the hotel window and from the outdoor pool on the the 17th floor provided great views of the city. The room itself was quite small although provided everything you desire, and the housekeeping was very frequent and welcoming. The free breakfast wasn't the best quality.

Very good hotel with reasonable prises. Room were quite small but very nice and clean. The bed was very good to sleep! Rooftop pool is also quite small but still spacious enough to cool down. Sunbeds were also great. Location were perfect - close everything. Would definitely stay in this hotel again.

A good modern style hotel in a busy central position. Comfortable hotel and rooms with standard layout. I had a single room with an extra large double bed, the view from my 6th floor window was a view across the roof tops, but the view from the roof top swimming pool is right across Saigon. Step outside and take your... More

This was our first stop in Vietnam & we stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel decor is reminiscent of a past era and looks a bit tired overall, none the less we found our room clean, compact and basically comfortable for sleeping - not really designed for relaxing in during your awake hours. This isn't a problem if you're... More

The Golden Central Hotel is quite a gem off the very busy Ly Tu Trong and short walking distance from the historic Ben Thanh Market. The Hotel doormen were most considerate & charming when needing assistance to cross the road or call a taxi. The reception desk is set at the back of the long foyer, which seems a bit... More

The concierge staff were very helpful. The room was tired, even average. The roof top pool was a great space to hang out, read, swim, take in the view or even meet people and just chat. Breakfast seemed extensive but I settled for an omelette and avoided the half cooked patisseries. I found the coffee undrinkable. I tried the cocktail... More

Stayed here upon arrival into Vietnam, as part of a big trip. Hotel location was perfect, close to Ben Than market and also within a close distance of the nightlife including bars and restaurants. About 25 minutes from Ho Chi Minh airport. Recommend using Min Laih taxi's (green cars) and request the meter to be used. Another is Vina Sun.... More
