In general I enjoyed my stay at the Empress Hotel. The room was comfortable, the staff very pleasant and helpful. The attached restaurant is reasonable - breakfasts are best eaten early if you want your hot foods hot. Although the staff are willing to bring hot water to rooms, I thought the lack of a kettle or facilities to make tea or coffee in the rooms was a surprising and inconvenient omission. Visiting guests are required to produce ID before entering rooms. I thought this was a bit much, but it is possibly the practice in many hotels thoughout Vietnam.

This hotel was quite pleasant to stay in but the location on the street Bui Thi Xuan was eye opening for the traveller unaccustomed to being a pedestrian in Ho Chi Minh City and the issues with being a pedestrian. The close proximity to Tao Dan Park was a big plus. The room had a bar fridge, so you could keep a little fruit and soy milk or whatever else needed. It would have been nice if the room had a kettle and cups for tea or coffee. I would recommend this hotel to those of modest needs and basic requirements. I felt the service of the Bell Captains and Kitchen and Front Desk staff was exceptional. Wireless internet is freely available here.

located at one end of the main shopping road, Le Loy, leading to Benh thanh market which is about 20 mins walk. Breakfast was good, the waitress will refill fresh food each time guests walk in. Reception staff and bell boys are helpful . Rooms are very clean but shower's water spray are weak .

This Hotel was clean and efficient with friendly staff. The location was within medium walking distance of the city centre and backpacking area but was not as centrally located as some other hotels. Experience proved it to be a little overpriced compared to other options in the backpacking area.

I would give 150% If there was rating over 100%. Very nice and clean hotel. Very frindly staff with very good english. Rooms clean and tidy. 4th and 5th floors for NO Smoking guest. That cant find any where else. Sent some questions and request by e-mail 3 times and got answer allmost immediatly. The reception are very happy to assist you if you want to book a tour. Location very good. 4 minutes walk you can find many nice restuarants. Internet cafe just few meters a way. The only thing i didnt like was that the hotel restaurant was outside the hotel and you have to go 4-5 meter to it, its not nice walk in rain. All in All was very pleased to stay there and will be 1st choice in future.

The hotel is average ,rooms large and friendly staff even if english is limited.B/F good and staff best in resturant. Close to markets and sights beware the taxi drivers with the speed meters check cost at hotel and contact doorman if taxi tries to rip you off.Police on your side so when doorman is called taxi takes off before the law arrives!!

Very helping frontdesk staff. The bachelor room is not very spacious but well equipped with all what one needs and expects from a 3 star hotel. It takes only a 5 min. walk to the bag(back)packer area. Also the booking of tours thru the reception is easy and the tour-provider Happy-tours has small Mercedes-pickup-cars for up to 12 pax. so toursare never crowed and they have great tour-guides, who are proud to tell you about Vietnam.

Friendly staff, good location and a surprisingly complete and tasteful room. With Saigon traffic being loud 20 hours a day, it's difficult to keep the street sounds out. Certainly a hotel i'd be happy to come back to.

An excellent well run hotel. The room was quiet and peaceful. Customer service from the staff was some of the best we had in Viet Nam. Buffet breakfast superb.

Stayed for two nights. Put into a very small double room on the first night but requested for a change to a slightly bigger twin room the second night. No complimentary drinking water is provided and there is no utensil for boiling water. There are sufficient English Tv channels provided. Service is good and the conceirge is helpful in providing information. Walking to Ben Thanh takes about 15 minutes.

A fairly stock standard hotel: the room was clean, with air-con and decently priced, but a bit of a hike to the main areas of HCMC. We only stayed one night and didn't get the chance to try the breakfast. My (extremely) early rising friend said that the gym was decent too.
