“Excellent Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

The Grand Silverland Hotel & Spa in Saigon should be best described as an excellent boutique hotel. At first I had difficultly assessing its overall aura. As we first approached hotel we noticed the high level of activity in the neighborhood. This is attributed to its location one block from the rear entrance of the Ben Thanh Market. Previously we spent time at both The Grand & Rex Hotels. The hub of activity in District 1 has now shifted to the area around the market. The location for all activities is excellent. It’s a good jumping off place while in Saigon. This Hotel really lives up to its reputation & glowing reviews. Everything you expect from an elite Boutique hotel is evident from the moment you hit the front desk. It is modern, well-decorated, and absolutely immaculate. Its staff led by the ever present & very personable front desk operations manager that transcends to smiling, energetic, and always helpful staffing individuals. A brief history of this hotel should be injected at this point. The hotel is a little over a year old. The Silverland Group contracted to manage this facility two months after it was built. As I was informed, the people of Vietnam own the land, the builder or developer contracts with the state to build the physical structure. Only one hotel in Saigon both built & manages its facility. This in part explains the few downsides to this facility. The fitness facility is small and needs to be relocated. Most likely the seventh floor putting green area if the local peoples committee will approve it. The pool area needs more lounge chairs. Again a limitation unfortunately was brought on by the original design plans. The elimination of the roof top fitness area would easily facilitate more seating. Though the affinity pool is not large if provides a splendid panorama of the Saigon skyline.
We opted for the suite that has windows facing the street. The room could not have been better. The bedding and pillows are excellent. There was a desktop Dell computer with internet access available. Our bath room contained a large pie shaped shower, whirlpool, steam bath with three different shower heads. We liked the location of the large closet & digital safe. You should be aware that some interior rooms do not have windows.
The Spa facility should not be dismissed. Two foot massages, a facial for the spousal unit and a full 90 massage was both enjoyable & relaxing.
My wife & I recommend this facility.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window. Also an upgrade to a suite is advisable.

As this was our first visit to Vietnam and a 10 night stay at this hotel, we were a bit unsure, what to expect,we booked a taxi pick up from the airport, via the hotel,but had a problem at passport control and a 2 and half hour wait,phoned the hotel to explain, and they said don't worry we will wait for you now.thats what i call service and my first impression of the hotel service.
After reading all the reviews on trip advisor, how can you add to all the good reviews about this hotel they are correct,as for the complaints you can't please everybody,all the time
On our 1st morning we were greeted by the general manager Binh and was asked if he could help in any way,any problems please contact him, also we were met at breakfast by Man the front office manager who was also very informative,as are all the staff nothing was a problem to them.
My overall comment if you stayed in a large hotel you would be a number,but in this hotel it is the personal touch that counts Binh keep up the good work. as for the staff i don't want to mention any particular member as all the staff are equal and a credit to you and your company,even now back home we are still in touch with some members of staff whom we befriended and keep in touch by email its great to have new friends on the other side of the world
Thanks once again Binh hope to see you soon.

John & Margaret

I am sure the hotel team were very honor to provide you professional service. Thus, I promise that I will pass on your feedback to serve as an encouragement.

It is quite pity that you had encountered such an unexpected experience at the first impression on check in at the immigration. However, I am glad that you overcome the situation with some times consumed and reached the hotel safely.

The hotel is located just one street from the Ben Thanh Market, and within walking distance to major sights. Grand entrance with an elegant and modern look. The rooms are nice, modern and clean but not very large. Enough space for two people, and you spend most of your time outside the hotel. Very nice pool on the top of the hotel, but only about 6 chairs, so be there early. Free internet is provided, also at the pool. All in all a very nice hotel and the location is very central.

This was our first trip to Vietnam and first stop was HCMC, we had no idea what to expect and booked this hotel after reading previous reviews on Trip Advisor and I cannot differ from all the good reviews I read on this hotel.

We were greeted at the airport by the flashing Grand Silverland sign, which made our day, arrived at the hotel and were again greeted by their friendly staff who had our reservation ready to go, we were checked into our room and advised where all the facilities were, Putt Putt golf on Level 7 and the Pool on Level 10. Great little pool too just wish there were more space for deck chairs. We asked about the shopping also and were well advised on where to head to, Saigon Square is a must.

The rooms were spacious and very clean and we made sure to get a room with a window, no view of anything but at least a window for light. Air con was in perfect working condition, superb breakfast in the mornings and the hotel itself is well located and we walked everywhere.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a reasonably priced hotel which has everything you need for a comfortable stay, friendly staff and located in a great area.

Room Tip: As per previous advise book a room with a window

We used this hotel as a transit from the uk to Cambodia and back. After getting a taxi at HCMC airport to the hotel we were welcomed in the hotel lobby by the friendly and efficient staff, given a complimentary drink while all the paperwork was done, didn't take long about ten minutes or so, then shown to our rooms. We had chosen the executive rooms. Very spacious, very clean and well presented with fresh fruit and cakes on the table. Jacuzzi bath was great after a days sight seeing. After freshening up, 14 hr flight from Manchester had to be washed off, we headed downstairs for a meal. The menu in the restaurant was very extensive with western and oriental dishes that cost us about $30 with drinks for four adults. The breakfast buffet is very extensive, again both western and oriental choices, over the total of 5 mornings we had there I tried a bit of everything and couldn't find fault with any. The location is perfect in district one if you like to walk and explore as we do. If you don't the taxis are cheap and the bell boys will flag one for you. They have a tour desk, who arranged a tour the the cu chi tunnels for us, very cheap at about $15 each with a guide and air conditioned mini bus. Walk out the front door turn right then right again and the bahn tan market is 100 meters down the hill in front of you. Not far to walk to the war museum, they provide a map and directions. The rooftop pool is clean and tidy with a bar/restaurant area with good food. Short on sunbeds due to size restriction but great views of the city and fantastic staff. Good place to unwind after sight seeing with a beer or two. Overall a fantastic experience at this hotel. Would recommend to anyone everytime, we will certainly use it again.

My husband and I spent 6 nights here. The reasons for choosing this hotel was the proximity to the food, the hairdressers, the shoe shops, the safe money exchange ..etc.The money saved from using taxi going to & fro restaurants/shopping made up for the price difference with less expensive hotels.
The staff was so friendly and extremely helpful.e.g Extra towels are no trouble, new keys, airport transfer is close to what you pay with meter taxi. ($5 difference or so, but less worry about timing & unscrupulous drivers).
Breakfast is wonderful. Clean, lots of tasty choices with main soup dish changed everyday.
e.g Monday : Pho, Tuesday : Bun bo hue (spicy Beef soup), Weds : Bun Rieu (Crab/seafood soup) .
My pharmacist customer recommended this to me, as it was very children friendly for her family.
Definitely recommended for everybody who wishes for a clean, comfortable, air cond. hotel with a pool in the middle of exciting Saigon.
