The staff was really helpful and gave us a lot of tips. On our last day they even gave us the possibility to have a shower before we went to the airport in the evening altough we already had checked out. The food in the restaurant is delicious!

I stayed for 2 nights at the Amsterdam room in the royal saigon hotel. It's a big room for 23 euro per night with a beautiful balcony and a nice view over the Bui vien. The bed was comfortable, soft and cosy. Everything was clean. The room concludes a big wardrobe and an aircon as well as a fan. Also... More

Dear fellows, visiting Vietnam should start and end with a stay in ROYAL SAIGON GUESTGOUSE on Bui Vien in district 1. Not only the area itself is vibrant and buzzing and therefore a perfect area to discover Ho Chi Minh City. The guesthouse is being runned by a German-Vietnamese cultured couple. Everyone is superfriendly, welcoming and helpful at any time.... More

We stayed 3 nights with my girlfriend in this small guesthouse and we felt very good right from the beginning. We had a double room that was ok, obviously no luxury but it was enough for us. The restaurant was really nice and we felt great downstairs eating and drinking very good food and smoothies. Staff was super friendly and... More

Very easy going place nice quiet place amongst the chaos that is Bui Vien st. The place is clean and the management are helpful. I will definitely stay here again. The rooms have everything you need. More than happy I would recommend The royal Saigon palace to solo travelers and couples

Friendly staff, good food in a touristic spot. A pearl in a midst of garage. Offer a nice variety of dishes, which so far we've all liked. Also, it was very cheap as well, we ate and drank for €3 each. Ask for the second floor, you don't have the noises and smell of the street so much.

Easily the best breakfast in Bui Bien and at a reasonable price. However, they do need to work on a few things. No table salt. Lots of people like to a dash of salt on their breakfast. No butter for the toast. Lots of people find toast too dry without butter. Please supply. There was also a little confusion when... More

This place gave us excellent service during our stay here. They have very hardworking and extremely friendly staff who were willing to help us with anything that we needed during our trip.

We stayed in the Halong Room for 3 nights. Great Wifi, A/C, refrigerator, rain shower and desk with a chair. Super friendly staff. Great location. Quiet Room. But there were problems. Would have been nice to have our room serviced during our stay. After first night we had to ask for towels, shampoo and soap. After the second night and... More
