When we originally booked we had no option but to pay upfront, unusual for this particular booking company, or if we cancelled we would lose 50%. I am guessing the reason for this is the loss of bookings due to the big building works taking place right in front of the hotel. Well we stayed for 5 nights, in a... More

We've been travelling for a few weeks across Vietnam and this was my last stop. Sadly it was the most disappointing of all the places we have stayed. The construction work outside is unfortunate but it's not that bad however a room which doesn't overlook it would be preferable. The rooms are spacious but felt a bit dated. The bathrooms... More

Based in the central District 1 an absolute gem!!! We arrived in HCMC from the airport and was taken by taxi to the Saigon Royal Hotel which our travel agent had booked incorrectly. Despite having paid upfront my wife and I were so disappointed with the conditions and dirtiness that we immediately contacted the Royal Hotel Saigon who gave us... More

This is a top class hotel with big rooms and all the trimmings you would expect, the staff were excellent. The only problem is at the moment there are major works going on outside which means you cannot get to the place unless you walk a couple of hundred meters. I understand this work will be completed by March 2015.... More

I stayed there in September 2014 with my parents and the facilities was awesome and the location is very close to tourist spots. Easy to get the transport to the other area and it is highly recommended.

The rooms were HUGE and hotel was clean, centrally located, staff friendly, breakfast good. Only negative was the bathrooms were quite small. They were doing major roadworks out the front of the hotel but... More

Large old somewhat pompous hotel in a superb location. Very close to restaurants, shops and walking streets. We took massage in a saloon right accross the street (or square?). It was the best massage i had in Vietnam. The room was spacious, nice and clean.
