“Great hotel in the centre”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

I liked this hotel - rooms are wonderful and very clean and basically it is indeed a wonderful 4 star hotel. Reception was quick and friendly too. And they bring you fresh fruits every day..another good thing is the central location, very close to everywhere (especially to a wonderful Italian restaurant Ciao Bella where we had 2 fantastic dinners)

I was really impressed with your spa ..I myself have been an esthetician for over 23 years and own a spa so needless to say I am a little picky ...I have always wanted to experience a Ho Chi Minh Spa but was a little nervous I would be disappointed so never bothered ..Well I am glad I took the opportunity up as I was staying at Grand Hotel ..The Spa alone even before a treatment is something amazing in itself so relaxing with tub, steam and sauna ..They have juice and herbal tea for you to enjoy too. I ended up having a massage that was out of this world with a four hands (two therapist doing massage at the same time, same movement, same technique) as well a Hot oil massage ..OMG I was so relaxed I got on the wrong elevator to the wrong floor....lol..Next time your in HCM its a MUST if you enjoy Spa's.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel was great. Situated near all the main attractions in town. Stunning night view from the bar on the top floor, which is a good place for a night cap. The spa looked nice, but, even after the special discounts it is still very expensive. The room was clean and neat. The free WiFi in the room worked very well. There are quite a few nice restaurants within easy walking distance from the hotel. We had breakfast in the hotel and the food was good. A very good. but pricey place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms seems to be equally good.

Great hotel. Room was ready for early check in. Especially the spa is truely amazing providing great customer service! I cannot fault this spa, its lovely and calming as soon as you walk in through the doors. The staff were all very friendly and our hour long Vietnamese massage was extremely relaxing. A full consultation was carried out before and after the massage to help with reducing pain/knots from my work environment eg. sitting at a desk.
The spa was spotless and facilities excellent; we arrived 30 minutes earlier to ensure we could make full use of the jacuzzi, experience shower, steam room and sauna and glad we did - we could have spent much longer!
I highly recommend the spa - you will not be disappointed!!

The rooms are lovely and the hotel is in a great central location. Being upgraded to a suite was a lovely surprise, as the hotel was undergoing renovations. The downside of this was that being on the 19th floor, under the rooftop bar, we were kept awake whilst they rearranged the furniture till gone midnight each evening once the bar closed, scraping tables across the parquet floor above.
Unfortunately the reception team really let the side down, as from the outset, we found the team to be unhelpful. Initially our bags were left unattended in reception by one of the bellboys, and none of the staff knew that they were ours, to ensure they got to our room. In the end we took them up ourselves and no one even spotted that they'd gone!
Later that afternoon we came down to change some money from USD to local currency and were told that they had very little currency. We only wanted to change a small amount, so said that wasn't a problem, at which point the story changed to they have no currency. As there are bars, a cafe & a casino in the hotel which are all open to non residents, I find it difficult to believe that they had no cash! They didn't suggest any alternative places until we spoke with the senior receptionist. Appalling, as we could possibly have come straight from the airport with no currency until 8am the next morning when they planned to change our currency!
When we tried to change remaining Vietnamese dong back into another currency at the end of our stay they were equally unhelpful, stating that they wouldn't change it back. The reception staff's standard of English was poor which we found strange as this was one of the largest hotels of the 7 we stayed in during our trip.
When we got to our room, there was a fruit knife, plates and a sign saying "with compliments" but alas the promised fruit basket had not been delivered.
The pool area looks great, but the tiled surfaces appear to have been covered over with a selection of random loose tiles which are very slippery & frankly it looks like a v shoddy bit of work, none of the new tiles are cemented down, they're all just loose. Towels by the pool area were old ones that had obviously had a former life in the hair salon, as they had bleach spots all over, v shabby.
Overall, the room we had was lovely, but I wouldn't recommend staying here, as as the service was poor & reception staff were uninterested in bring helpful!

We stayed at the Grand hotel for two nights at the beginning of our trip around Vietnam. We arrived early and were allowed to check in to our deluxe double with no issues, they even upgraded us to larger room with a view of the river on the 10th floor even though we had booked the least expensive room. The room and bathroom are spacious and very quiet. Fresh fruit and bottle water in the room is a lovely touch the hotel is well maintained. There is an excellent buffet breakfast with options to cater for every taste and culture, the best we had in our two week stay in Vietnam. We loved the egg station! The reception staff, especially the porters are very polite, helpful and friendly. Staff are busy here because this is a popular hotel but nothing was too much trouble for them. The courtyard pool and bar is a peaceful relaxing space when you need a break from the horn honking HCMC streets. The courtyard is surrounded by trees and plants and feels like an oasis. The location is also perfect. Many of the more expensive hotels are closer to the main square but this means they are also on louder, more busy streets. The Grand hotel is a 10 minute walk away from the main sights and it was perfect being closer to the river.
We were so impressed with the hotel that after staying for two nights we booked our final night in a deluxe double room, two weeks later at the Grand hotel. This was the best decision we made as when we returned two weeks later they again upgraded us, but this time to the royal suite on the 19th floor!! The suite had it's own lounge and bedroom and two bathrooms and the best view of the city. We felt very welcomed and looked after at the Grand hotel and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone staying in HCMC. Did I also mention that they squeezed me in to have my nails painted in the salon with no appointment... perfect service and amazing service.

Room Tip: All rooms are fabulous.

Very satisfied with my stay in this hotel. The rooms are very cozy and comfortable. Location is great. Close to Ban Thanh Market and many restaurants around hotel. Must visit the Sky deck at the new Bitexco Financial tower which is within walking distance from hotel, the view of the city from there is simply amazing.
