Great location. Reception staff were friendly and tried hard but were very undertrained in service. Room was tiny with no external window. However there was a window from our room to the corridor outside our door. This allowed a lot of noise. And we were often woken around 5am to the noise of staff banging doors and talking loudly. The...

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in a family room. The room I got was in the 9th floor and towards the back of the hotel. The hotel has 10 floors,the elevator only goes up to the 8th floor. However, it isn't difficult to climb the stairs at all, so didn't mind it. The elevator drops you off straight...

As there are three Dragon Palace Hotels, be careful which one you book. We arrived by bus and walked to the hotel from the bus terminal. It is also an easy walk (apart from the HCMC traffic, which is NUTS) in the opposite direction to the markets, which are fantastic for shopping. The hotel has a side entrance off a...

Although surrounding environment is not ideal situated at the backpackers area with lots of shops and pubs nearby, the hotel is centrally located with public transport access and not far from airport. The room area is average but not noisy, facilities and furnishing are modern design, presented to be new and clean. Buffet breakfast is tasty with a variety of...

Where to start? At one point we were sitting in the lobby, waiting for our tour pick up and the boy was on Facebook watching real excecution movies on a big computerscreen. We saw about ten men get shot in the head. When we told him how inapropriate this is he just laughed at us with his collegues. Furthermore the...

The hotel is located in one of the main entertainment areas of Ho Chi Minh City. While the lobby does not look very exciting, the spacious rooms are very clean and well lit, have laminated floors and solid wooden modern and good quality furniture. There is free WIFI. The bathrooms are bright, new and clean, but the towels could be...

There are 3 Dragon Palace hotels. We stayed in the one at 173 Pham Ngu Lao. After checking in we were shown to our room 303. It is a good size for a couple staying for a few days. The room was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed and more. The reception staff were polite and helpful....

This hotel is sruffy and I would advise you to choose another. We arrived to find the tour desk in the lobby littered with beer cans and the staff having a drinking session. The corridor had bags of recycling and rubbish piled up. The room (suite 2) was ok so we left our bags and went out for a meal....

Dragon Palace Hotel, is a great find for those who don't want to pay over the top prices to stay in Saigon, but still want clean, comfortable lodgings. I stayed in the Executive suite on the 9th floor which was only a few dollars more than the standard room. It was very spacious and well equipped. Traffic noise did not...
