Spent five days at the Golden Central Hotel while site seeing in Ho chi Minh City and we were very happy with the service & facilities available to us. The rooms were large & clean. The double rooms came with two single beds that were comfortable but set apart & was not ideal for a family or couple. Although there was coffee available in the room there was no tea & when tea was ordered from the room service it came without milk. You need to ask for milk specifically or they send you the tea without it. The toilets were large and clean but not enough toilet paper is provided may be because there is a bidet in the toilet. The rooms are cleaned well every day and all supplies (except toilet paper) was replenished.
Breakfast was ok. As we stayed for 5 days it was the same old every day. The scrambled eggs were great but the cooked food like spaghetti & curry tended to be a bit dry. The bacon was crispy!!' There was not much choice of food in the restaurant but the food there was adequate.
The pool was small but clean and a good place to relax.
The location was great. Close to most of the city attractions & about 3-5 minute walk to Ben Thanh market. There were loads of shops on either side of the hotel to browse & there was this one shop Hoi An run by a young girl that had some really good clothes. The service there was great. they do alterations while you wait & will accept any currency Dong, USD or AUD. There is a taxi stand right in front of the hotel so there was plenty of taxis any time you wanted.
The service is excellent. The staff are all smiles & will go out of the way to do that extra bit to make your stay so much better. I had to check out at 12 & wait till 1 in the waiting area to take the cab to the airport & during that time i was offered tea, water & numerous inquires of whether i wanted any thing.
I recommend this hotel for any adults on a trip to Ho chi minh city.
