“Excellent location and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

Really cannot find anything to criticise about this hotel. Location is perfect, about one block from the Opera House, and on the main shopping street. It is billed as a 3 star. That may be accurate given the rather old-fashioned look (which has it's own charm), which is not to say that the rooms are shabby. Hardwood floors, a gigantic double bed, cornices and decoration, including calming and atmospheric pale yellow tones. That said, the TV is an old (but totally functional) CRT unit, the desk information set is charmingly mixed in content, and the shower is over the bath. But to score a bath in a giant room for about $70 a night including breakfast is an absolute steal.
Reception was efficient and charming - no deposit charged at all, just pay on checkout.
My room had a small balcony overlooking the main street, but with double-glazing so pretty quiet.
There is a small swimming pool on the 8th floor which seemed not much used, but was quite adequate.
My only small complaint is the absence of much western style breakfast food. Fine if you are happy with an Asian breakfast, or a good selection of fruits and toast. Not so good if you need eggs to start your day. And if you do, just Google Annam Foodstore which is two blocks away and has a 1st floor cafe serving massive French breakfasts (and great lunch too).
Taxi from the airport is about $10. There are multiple ATM's of major banks within a block of the hotel.
A great stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony if you want to avoid one of the interior viw rooms

Stayed here for one night after being bumped off Bong Sen Hotel Saigon just on the other side of the road due to overbooking. It was my company receptionist's fault, can't really blame the hotel. Actually i felt a bit disappointed at first when i arrived in this hotel because with the same price i paid with the other hotel it seemed like a downgrade for me. But soon enough it's just ok because the wifi is a lot better. The staff is much more accommodating and service oriented. I had a buffet on the rooftop where i get to try traditional food and barbecue. It's not a lot of choices but because the price isn't that much plus the it's in the rooftop. I think i paid 300,000 something VND for a buffet and a beer. The room i had is a bit old and no good views on the windows. Good location.

Huong Sen Hotel in District 1 HCMC was a delightful Hotel to arrive at for the start of a Vietnam adventure.
It was clean. King bedroom was generous in size. Staff were friendly and very helpful.
Wifi internet was fast enough and there was also access on the computer near reception.
The location of the Huong Sen was brilliant. We could walk to Notre Dame Cathedral, Postoffice, City Square and Bin Than Markets.
Generous choice at Breakfast buffet.

Couldn't fault the Huong Sen Hotel.

This is a fantastic hotel in the centre of HCM City, with lots of cafes and restaurants close by. Our room was huge and very, very clean, staff very friendly and attentive. Hotel massage great too! The bed was very firm, but we were to discover this is a common theme in Viet Nam. Shower over bath tub, could be difficult to get in and out of if you have any mobility issues. Breakfast buffet worth the investment, wonderful fresh bread and rolls + all the usual suspects. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent location and staff. Felt safe and w we lcome. Had a great time. Love the various vietnamese soup, bread and pate at the breakfast buffet. Great place for street view and to see new year firecracker. Pay little more for the big room with balcony. It's totally worth every penny. Will deffinitely be back.

Good location, walking distance to main attractions such as Ben Thanh Market, Opera House, Notre Dame Cathedral and Post Office etc...Train station is also nearby (about 20 mins by taxi). Lovely staff and very helpful. We stayed 2 nights in room 209 in January 14, decent size and clean. Breakfast on rooftop had good varieties. The swimming pool was very small though about 10 m x 3 m. The gym equipment did not work however. Street traffic and noise from air con be a bit of problem for lignt sleepers. We needed to catch an early train and our breakfast was packed ready to go in the morning. Overall, a nice hotel with good service.
