A great wee hotel close to the local markets. We were only here a few days, so went for a standard room, and were impressed by the size, a nice clean room, with comfy bed, and the usual amenities, and surprisingly quiet given how busy the streets were outside. The roof top pool was also a bonus, being hot during... More

This is one of a number of similar hotels in District 1. Nothing to complain about really, but nothing to get excited about either. Generally I'm a fan of smaller, boutiques tau,e hotels, but these are I short supply in HCMC. Handily located for all the main attractions, it is well appointed, clean and has good sized rooms. The breakfast... More

This is a good hotel near market area, nice pool on rooftop. staff very good and overall experience good. The breakfast was excellent a great choice of food. Only complaint is they did not have an iron or ironing board in room which for me was a big thing because clothes all creased from travel and you should not have... More

The hotel was good. As large and more a business hotel it was quite impersonal. Rooms good size, bed comfy, pool was lovely. However it was in a superb location. The best part was the bell boy. As there was a practice for the 40th anniversary celebrations a notice went out to say the roads would be closed at 7pm.... More

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
