I would give this a hotel a 2.5. Great location, just down a back street off the main backpacking area. Service at reception ok with lockers to use as safety deposit boxes. Rooms were ok. A little basic and not the cleanest. Door to bedroom locked but there was a gap around door frame. Breakfast was fine with a decent... More

This hotel is amazing. First, even though it is located in the busy and touristic area in core District 1 in Saigon, I have never been disturbed by any noise. That's because it is surrounded by other buildings, natural buffer or soundproof system. I slept a sound sleep every night while staying in this hotel. Second, the staffs are so... More

For a tourist hotel, you probably can't get a better location in Saigon than Golden Wind. Even though it's in the block bordered by the two main tourist streets, it's down a lovely 'local' alley so noise is an absolute non-issue (unless you count the calls of the fruit peddlers riding past in the morning). As far as the room... More

The hotel has a good location, right in the centre of saigon. This is what you pay for. We booked a superior room for 21.60 USD and the first night we got a room (no. 503) that did not meet this standard. There was no lock on the bathroomdoor, you could not even close it as there also was no... More

If you compare it to the most of the other hotels in Vietnam you pay way to much for this hotel. But of course it's in ho chi min, so you can expect to pay more for less. The hotel is alright, after switching rooms we had a nice room, not to small, with a leaking ac (rm 306) but... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. Location was really good just off Main Street but nice and quiet at night. Room was always cleaned. Breakfast was pretty much the same every day but had a selection of fruit, cereal, noodles, toast. Staff were brilliant always friendly and willing to help. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks for all your help... More

Maybe bring an eye mask if you're sensitive to the morning light like I am * bathroom no problems - good shower * decent price * good buffet style breakfast * helpful and friendly staff... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Golden Winds Hotel and our stay was pleasant. Rooms were clean, A/C, cable T.V., small but just big enough not to feel to uncomfortable. The staff were hopeful in setting up tours and buses into Cambodia and other parts of Vietnam. Breakfast was okay finished at 10 a.m. Could have been set up better.... More

from my blog: http://backpackingwithmishi.wordpress.com/2014/05/11/golden-wind-hotel-ho-chi-minh-vietnam/ Location: Golden Wind Hotel is located at the popular Pham Ngu Lao Street where you can find a lot of backpackers hostel, hotels, and business establishments.
