Historical Traveller Reviews of Grand Hotel

Meh. A bit expensive.

from jaandbe
Pretty average. Stayed here during Tet 2007 (what a wonderful time to
be in Vietnam! -very exciting!) Staff were reasonably helpful, rooms were average, water pressure was bad in both the rooms we stayed in (silly i know, but at $US100/night i expect better). Apparently the Old Wing is much much nicer - i'd hope so.

Lovely hotel - just a bit expensive

We stayed at the Grand Hotel over the Tet Festival in March 2007. It certainly is a Grand Hotel (old section). The rooms were all well appointed and the windows were double glazed, which certainly helped keep out some of the traffic noises.

Breakfast each day was buffet style and one of the best buffet breakfasts that I have ever seen. There was a good selection of different foods to cover the different cultures. Why anyone would even want a western breakfast in a place like this is beyond me.... but bacon and eggs are available - albeit in the bain maries.

Overall we were very impressed with the hotel and had no problems. We did witness one very irrate westerner getting upset with a vietnamese staff member who didn't speak very good english. I don't know why these people expect everyone around the world to speak their language. Don't go to vietnam if you are hoping they all speak good english - because that's not the case. A lot of vietnamese speak a little english - but not all of them. We got by, but there was the odd "misunderstanding" along the way. Just enjoy their country and remember - you are the visitor to their country - you should try to make an effort to speak their language - even if it's just hello and thank you.

Unfortunately this was one of the most expensive hotels that we stayed in and after having stayed in a variety of hotels during our visit, the cheapest of which was USD$18 per night (with dinner, bed and breakfast), I really couldn't justify spending $200 a night in a hotel again. Maybe we were lucky, but our cheap hotels were just as good as the expensive hotels (and with free internet and smiling staff!)

Will Stay Here Again and Again

from HeadedOut
The Grand Hotel was perfect for recovering from our long journey from the US. We booked a deluxe suite, and it was everything we hoped for. The staff was amazingly prompt and friendly if we needed any little tiny thing. We felt our money was well-spent at this hotel, and after changing hotels and cities every two or three days for three weeks during our journey northward to Hanoi, we saw a great many hotels. But I think this one was our favorite. The lovely oldness of it. The staff. The beautiful rooms. Yes, we will stay here again.

Two negative comments: The pool was cold. And the massage was pretty much a hand-rub instead of real massage. Not really complaining about either, though. Just noting.

Fabulous olde world hotel experience

from arundel15
Excellent location for shops, restaurants and sightseeing. Fabulous old worlde wing - large rooms, high ceilings and well appointed. Great swimming pool to cool off in after walking around this busy city. Buffet breakfast okay with self service everything including cutlery, crockery, etc which is disappointing in a 4 star hotel. Reception pleasant, however, a little disorganised on occasions.

Great location, good value for money

from sgd73
A first time visitor to Vietnam, the Grand Hotel was our first hotel stop in a three week holiday starting in Ho Chi Minh City working our way up the coast to Hanoi. The Grand Hotel is located in a lovely part of Ho Chi Minh City; in a great spot for sightseeing and enjoying nice restaurants. The rooms are simple, but clean and bright, whilst the public areas are beautifully maintained. Staff are friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast is quite good (stick with the pho rather than western food). There is no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, however the room service staff were extremely expedient in bringing an urn with hot water, tea bags and a glass (!!) of milk with a straw:) The only minor problem we encountered was that there was building work going on outside our room which tended to go till fairly late at night and start quite early.. All in all though, a great hotel to base yourself and explore the city and the region. Also, make sure you go to the War Remnants museum and the Cu Chi Tunnels.. well worth the day trip!

Grand experience

from Jmillar
My friend and I travelled to Vietnam for the first time and stayed at the Grand Hotel. What a wonderful experience for our first time. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the breakfasts were very good and it was in such a great location. Our room was a home away from home for us, with water and fruit delivered every day. Loved the atmosphere of the hotel with all the beautiful chandeliers and the lovely old lift. Not being a swimmer I did not take advantage of the pool area, but that also was very nice. Not too much road noise either. I will certainly stay here next time I come to Vietnam.

Great location, Great experience

from dsw5
Our trip to The Grand was our first ever visit to Vietnam and we weren't disappointed. The staff make you feel really welcome, always cheerful and willing to help. The rooms are quite basic, particularly the bathrooms ... but they're clean and have everything you need - even bath robes! The location is superb, within walking distance of loads of great restaurants, shops and sights. We really liked the Belle Vue bar at the hotel for cocktails and a nice view of the area, although the down side was it closed at 10pm! As for the breakfast - superb! Really wide choice from eggs and bacon to fruit or dim sum and great strong coffee! Also, go to Underground Saigon on Dong Khoi - a touristy bar about 30 seconds from the hotel as the happy hour (more like a half day) provides plenty of cheap drinks and good service!
I would definitely go back to The Grand!

The Grand was grand!

from ariane123
I was not let down by the Grand over a four night stay. Cleanliness was exceptional, the air conditioning worked well and the staff were, in the main, very helpful. Breakfast was a bit 'samey', as a previous reviewer noted, but the pho was good and there were a number of choices as to what should go into it, which is important. I stayed in the new wing, overlooking the pool, and was perfectly satisfied with it. Yes there is some traffic noise but, frankly, that adds to the experience of Sai Gon and I confess that I've never yet braved a city centre hotel without earplugs, so I wasn't bothered in any way. Standard of service in the bar was good, money changing service charged reasonable rates, coffee shop was a nice haven in the afternoons. The location of the hotel is also good and, although I didn't use the pool or the massage service, both appeared to offer what was promised. I would certainly be happy to stay here again.

Would stay here again

from yoyouws
I was perfectly happy here and felt I got what I paid for; no more and no less. My room was in the old wing; clean, spacious and secure. I found the staff friendly and courteous at all times, and the location was perfect. Breakfast was fine, and I would certainly stay here again.

Grand is great for kids

from sjhinton
We had five nights at the Grand - in a two bedroom suite in the old section of the hotel - lovely (a little street noise, but what do you expect?) large two bedrooms, great for the kids, with the pool area down one flight of stairs. Worked brilliantly with small kids. Staff were helpful, polite. Breakfast is good. Couldn't fault it.


Top Local Tips for Ho Chi Minh

La Fourchette - fantastic food If staying in disrtict 1 and looking for top-notch bistro type French food, try La Fourchette. It's to be found on 9 Ngo Duc Ke street (across the road from the Grand Hotel). The staff is very well trained, food is excellent, the wine selection is good. The price is very reasonable for what you get. The owner, Jean-Luc, is a great guy and he knows his trade.

Beware of Taxi Drivers Twice we travelled to the Ben Thah markets, when the doorman called a taxi, it costs 20,000 dong but when we got a metered taxi back (the same distance) it was 96,000 dong - at first we paid it as he made quite a show of abusing us, the next time when they wouldnt accept 20,000 dong, we sat in the taxi and asked him to call the police, he couldnt get us out of the taxi quick enough - we were only a few blocks away but didnt want to walk in the heat, it costs us the same amount to get back to the airport a trip of around 30 minutes as it costs us to go a few blocks
