We feel on reflection we made a good choice in selecting Golden Central, on arrival at Tan Son Nhat Airport, we had to wait a while for a taxi, but now with hindsight we have the following advice for other European travellers arriving at the airport. On arrival and having collected your bags, ignore everything you see as you exit... More

It was finally a good choice. Favourite spot of the hotel - the roof top terrace with an amazing view over the city, has a pool, and some fitness stuff so managed to work out at 35degrees and chill out music looking over Ho Chi Minh away from all the traffic and honcking (dont raise expectations, the treatmill is pretty...

We had much, much higher expectations for this based on other hotel's in Vietnam, 4* rating and the price charged (think it was £55/night) . Expected a lot more so disappointed and we moved after one night Pluses Location spot on - very central. Can walk to all main district 1 attractions. Nice dipping swimming pool to cool off in....

The shower is amazing. Location is great and the staff are friendly and attentive, if there is nightlife in the area I wasn't able to find it but for a location for day time activity it is great. Breakfast was okay.

I stayed here for 2 nights in July 2013. I was disappointed. I expected more from a 4 star hotel in light of other 4 star hotels I have stayed in in Ho Chi Minh city. Pros:- - The hotel is in a great central location for the main city sights. - The 16th and 17th floor resteraunts have great... More

We were really disappointed with this hotel and even considered trying to find an alternative. The overriding problem is that the hotel is tired. Whilst the reception staff are well trained and attentive, the others we encountered in the bar and the restaurant were untidy, inattentive and lacked the standard I would expect to see in a four star hotel....

Lobby itself is quite lovely, very clean with exquisite chandelier Consierge attentive and helpful Location - excellent if wanting proximity Ben than market area Service - average, although somehow staff managed to "lose" our power adaptor...

I was very surprised by this hotel. I booked it because i read good reviews, and my experience was in line with that. Good breakfast, clean and nice room (just a little small, but big enough) and central located. An absolute recommendation

We stayed at the Golden Central Hotel for 3 nights during our stay in Ho Chi Minh! The room was clean, the service was brilliant and the location was really good - round the corner from the main market and close to lots of good restaurants and tourist offices! What made the hotel for us was the rooftop pool! It... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. It is located one block away from Ben Thanh Markets. It is a four star hotel and the service is good. Staff speak limited English but we seemed to get by quite well. The rooms are good and very clean. The breakfast buffet was included in our price and it was also... More
