“Greeted Like Family!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

My sister and I had stayed at the Grand Hotel during our visit to Vietnam during 2012. When we returned in 2013, I had hoped that they had been able to maintain the exceptional level of service that we had received in the past. Well, all I can say is that the staff exceeded expectations. As soon as we stepped out of our taxi, the staff was outside greeting us as if we were long-lost family. Check-in was a breeze and our bags were in our room immediately.
The morning breakfast room has been changed to a bigger space and is quite nice. I'm not sure if the food is as good as I remember but it was more that adequate. As the hotel continues to up-grade construction noise can be a problem if you are looking for quiet time by the pool. While the spa is new and looks lovely, they may need to expand services in the future. However, I will continue to recommend this hotel as money well spent.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a fun historical experience, ask for a room in the old French wing. However...

We checked into the hotel for 4 nights and have a lovely room overlooking the street, in the new part of the hotel. Breakfast is great, plenty of choice, the pool area is good although there are works going on around it at the moment. We are able to walk to the river and to places,like the Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral and Reunification Palace. It's a bit more expensive than other places we usually stay but worth the money.

we stayed at the Grand in April for 4 nights, 2 nights would have been quite adequate, as we have been to H.C.M.C. quite a few times now,however, last time we stayed at the Grand was before it was extended, although the hotel is still in the refurbishing mode, I some how think I prefer the Old Grand, but I guess we must move with times, the reception staff were extremely efficient as always, extremely quick they leave your thoughts behind sometimes, the rooms in the new wing are, as you would expect being new, clean & bright, and the breakfasts are very encouraging, with a good selection of Western & Asian foods, the restaurant meals are good, but a bit pricey, there is a excellent restaurant just over the road called Jasper's, the proprietor, who's name is Murphy, will make you most welcome and his staff are the best I found in my many trips to Vietnam, they all speak excellent English, the Hotels pool is in need of updating as there are loose tiles all around the pools edge, and wooden slates are all broken and ragged, but perhaps this may on the agenda to be fixed, the drink prices, as you would imagine, are on the high side, but worth at least one drink or two at the roof top bar, as a hole, I would stay here again, perhaps its sentimental to me.

We spend 2 nights at this amazing hotel. The rooms are new and clean. We had views of the river and the rooftops of neighbouring buildings. The location of the hotel is fantastic. You can walk to the shopping quarters and many of the attractions, including the Opera House. The hotel provided the most amazing service, including a complimentary fruit basket daily and a fantastic breakfast buffet.

We arrived late one night after a full day traveling, so when I opened the door of our room I was greeted with luxury. Quality furniture & fittings , lovely decor & most of all a comfy bed & fantastic shower. Even the hand cream was lovely, we could have easily stayed here a week, instead of the two nights we had.

Our room overlooked the internal courtyard & pool area which was being refurbished, with a view over the river as well.

Staff were very helpful & breakfast was divine.

Overall an excellent place to stay, would I recommend, absolutely.

We had 3 nights at the Grand Hotel which was just perfect for our last stay in Vietnam. We stayed in the executive deluxe room in the old quarter of the hotel which was beautiful, and perfect for us. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom large and clean. The only complaint I can make is that the balcony is a stand only balcony another words very small and a bit scary if your not good with heights. The breakfast was good and the atmosphere of the hotel is nice. The roof top bar has fantastic views and nice for a cocktail and their small casino is great. The staff are very friendly, polite and accommodating.The location is fantastic with walking distance to great shops and good restaurants , 10 min walk to night markets. Just outside hotel is a small 24hr mini market and Saigon Tourist cars who work with the hotel for transport or tours at a reasonable cost. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend the Grand Hotel.

Had a deluxe room level 10 overlooking the river. Spacious and very clean room with beautiful soft linens and pillows on an extremely comfortable king bed. Bathroom very clean with all the usual amenities. Complimentary fruit basket was lavish with dragon fruit, bananas and apple. Slightly disappointed with the breakfast buffet the room was souless and the food just adequate. Egg station was good though. Spa was good and enjoyed a fruity facial but good foot massage. Pool area is small, inadequate number of pool lounges, great drinks and service though. Hotel throughout is very clean and lovely to walk through the different original and newer sections looking at the differnet achitecture. One night was extremely noisey with a retaurant set up at 10 pm which had us complaining to management at 11 pm. Centrally located close to many restaurants, friendly staff and for the price we paid a fabulous choice. Would return and would recommend.
