I’m a bit concerned when reading online information of street construction nearby the hotel. However the concern was gone because the hotel provided free pick-up service from the airport to door-step of the hotel. Time-consumed walking is not necessary. Taxi and bus public services are ready right front of the hotel, very easy and comfortable. Hotel employees are very friendly... More

When i check-in, big building works taking place right in front of the hotel. But staffs are friendly, they offer me to pick-up airport and many benefits. Breakfast is wonderful with many choices, rooms are great with room to move around easily. Now, the construction in front (walking street) finished, walking to shopping easier. Otherwise a really great stay so... More

For a 4 star hotel i accepted more. For example, better service from the receptionist with orientation rather than just being handed a map and told to get on with it. The rooms are nice, the beds are big but the bathrooms are poor and look tired. However, the location is very central and the breakfast was very good. It... More

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.

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.
