“Character in good position”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Great sized rooms, beds a little hard and the showers just good enough in a dated bathroom.
But the position is great, easy walk to the markets, plenty of choices for food and the staff were helpful. The pool is good for swimming but not for relaxing as the indoor/outdoor area just doesn't invite lazing around.

Room Tip: Hope for a soft bed

The location is excellent. Walking distance to all the tourist attractions and near lots of great bars and restaurants. The rooms are large and the bed is comfortable but the rooms are dated. The bathroom is where the upgrade is needed the most. The shower was not good as the shower head needed changing as not that much water came out. Wasn't that impressed with breakfast either.

THis hotel in the heart of Saigon city center was just great. The room was large and very comfort. The breakfast was very good. The hotel is near the opera and the main city atractions. THe main market was very near, and so all the camera shops . ( I need them very much for few spare parts for my photo equipment.) All the best restaurants and coffi houses where few steps from the hotel .

Be advised of Scams that steal money from hotel room safes. We and our friends had money stolen from our room safes in The Palace Hotel in Saigon in Jan 2014. The thieves left just enough money to let us believe all was well and left it until our last night to take it. The safe was locked again afterwards so we were unaware that it had been opened. Check every night!!! Also, don’t expect items left behind in your room to be returned. This happened to us in this same hotel. Although a nice looking hotel, it appears they employ some very dishonest staff!!! The hotel was un-responsive to our e-mails.

Stayed a couple of nights here while in Saigon.

The room I had was big, but dark due to the only window looking into a tight multi-story atrium. The positive side to this is that there was zero street noise (no view except for another window a couple of meters away)

Negatives--
Although clean, the room was a little worn.
The bed was asian hard.
The bathroom was small, and the water had a yellow tint when first turned on.

Positives--
The air conditioning worked fine
wifi worked well
the flat screen TV had a decent station selection.
Their breakfast buffet was not bad and the dining room was surprisingly better than the room.
We were allowed an extra hour to check out
Clean rooms.

If you get a great rate, and you plan on being out exploring the city... it is a fine choice.

Have visited here on many occasions over the past year and never a problem. Khoa in the Royal Cafe speaks first class English and ensures that food, drink, and service are the best! Try the Long Island Iced Tea (made with diet coke) - you will be delighted!
