I didn't find this hotel as bad as some. It is considered average. The bathroom and room were average. The reception staff do not speak the best English and were very difficult to understand. I stayed here for 3 nights and found the hotel reasonably clean for a cheap hotel.

went to this hotel with a tour group. it is a very nosy hotel and did not appreciate having spiders in the bed linen, especially black ones. there was a leak in one of the light globes in the bathroom and a rat crawled across the window. I have advised the tour group agency not to come back. it hasn't... More

hotel is clean, rooms are big enough and staff are helpful. we arrived at 4am and the hotel staff let us check into our room early. lift is quick this hotel is conveniently located 5 mins walk from the Cambodian bus, there's also an ABC bakery that is open early so you can get some food before that bus.

We visit Saigon frequently and have always been satisfied with our accomodation whether it was 2 star or 4 star. We decided to try the Saigon Royal for a four night stay in June 2015, the general remarks and pictures looked reasonable. We would like to direct this criticism to the websites who advertise this property and particularly Trip Advisor,... More

Only good thing about this hotel is the location. Hotel is old, dirty and the staff are rude. I only stayed one night and purely as my tour I was doing started from there. Stains on the bed, cockroaches galore. At one point had to fight off about 6 cockroaches in the bathroom. Shower was very dirty. Wouldn't even dream... More

We had a 2 floor room and was a little noisy. We had no issues with the room tidied daily and was close to major tourist spots. Holy the first thing your realise your in hcmc is the motor bikes. Bali has nothing on this place.

Hotel is a bit old which is probably why during our 3 night stay here, I saw 3 cockroaches on different days (one dead when we first entered the room, second dead on the hallway and third was the worse with an alive one crawling along the bed)..Staff is friendly at first although once we checked out and I realized...

We were surprised that the room was larger than what we expected. Basic amenities. Wifi was only good on the first day, non-existent on the second day because of cable problems. Stayed on the 7th floor. Very noisy at night but my husband explained maybe it's because they use bricks on their buildings so it's not soundproof. Nice breakfast.

The hotel is tucked away and does not look as smart as its neighbors but it is fine for the traveler on budget, clean room, bed and safe. The Staff do not speak a lot of English but try hard to assist. The only downfall is the restaurant, the breakfast says continental and it really is not nice, we skipped... More
