Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris365 The hotel staff are excellent
We have stayed at the Sheraton towers every single time we visit Vietnam. Would not consider any other hotel when in Saigon. The staff are attentive, friendly and looked after all our needs, especially helpful as we were travelling with a 3 year old and 9 month old. Thank you

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gwangi This hotel have old fittings
When I check in the staff was helpful as I request for a higher floor room. After some checking she check me into a room which is not a SPG prefers room floor. I have request for a late check out on my check out time and she told me the hotel is full and she could only extend my check to 2pm which told her I am okay with it.
On reaching the room I found the carpet and fitting to be old. The chest drawers will not stay close and I my legs run into it a few time during the night as I was walking to the toilet.
On the first night I saw a few insert clawing up and down the walls. Not sure if it is the same one. I can't identify it as it run off as I get closer to have a look.
On check out another issue as the late check out was not indicated on the computer and they want to change me a half day fees. It was not a nice and easy check out. and it took more time to check out then to check in.
On the whole I did not really enjoy my stay there.

We visited SGN in April, then decided to go on the Mekong River Cruise so we opted to stay at the Sheraton again. We are senior leisure travelers, who enjoy touring, shopping and eating, but need a comfortable, clean and safe hotel. Sheraton Saigon met all our expectations and more. The staff is welcoming, helpful and friendly. The location is great, close to shopping areas, historical spots and many excellent restaurants. The breakfast buffet on the 2nd floor has a lavish spread and the Mojo Café provides refreshing drinks and snacks as you watch all the activity on Dong Khoi. Both the standard and tower rooms are comfortable with more luxury and amenities in the tower with an awesome club lounge. Our flight departure was very late but we were accommodated with a late check out and permitted to wait in the lounge after checking out. After 2 stays here, I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was perfectly situated in the center of town for walking down Dong Khoi to the river, visiting museums, and enjoying great restaruants. It was great to take a dip in the outdoor pool each night after a hard day of souvenir-hunting and walking. I have a question about the fragrance in the lobby - is it a particular flower or plant? Thought I smelled it around town, too. Thanks!

2nd visit to this property, great disappointment.
Bright side first:
Staffs are well trained. Very attentive, friendly and helpful. They really did whatever they can to make your stay more convenience and enjoyable.
The whole property is a bit aged but still properly maintained. Excellence location, trustworthy taxis always standing by outside the entrance.
Buffet breakfast on the 1/F is nice, not enough choices though.
The room is quite old, mattress a bit cave in, dirt found in the bath tub. Generally acceptable, but renovations suggested.
The dark side:
Although I'm a platinum member, I won't expect being treated like a king - well, plat members are everywhere anyway. Yet, the stinginess of the hotel management really makes me sick. Giving you a slightly bigger room (trust me,not much different) and call it a "best available upgrade". Guess I should kowtow for that.
Booked a club room for my travel companions and, guess what: The in-room internet is NOT complimentary even for club rooms. Wow. I should be glad that I'm a plat member again: I saved several pennies for that! So what's the point of getting a club room? Just because of that small lounge? Three pressings per stay? Come on.
If my loyalty are being rewarded this way in the property, the only thing I could say is the hotel management don't really treasure my patronage, while their staffs really did.
In terms of value for money, this property totally failed. Not bad for overnight stopovers, but don't expect too much.

OF THE THREE ROOMS I USED, ONE WAS USED BY MY AGING MOTHER-IN-LAW. WHEN I WENT TO CHECK ON HER COMFORT, I COULD SMELL A MOLDY / MUSTY ODOR IN THE ROOM WHICH GREATLY DISTURBED AND DISAPPOINTED ME. MY MOTHER-IN-LAW TOLD ME NOT TO MAKE A FUSS ABOUT IT SO I LET IT GO FOR HER SAKE AND PEACE OF MIND. NOTWITHSTANDING, MAINTENANCE HAD USED A IONIZER TO CLEAR THE AIR WHICH WAS INEFFECTIVE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sljo888 Couldn't have been more helpful on our special day
From the beginning (arrival at HCMC airport) and the beaming, professional and helpful welcome by the concierge through to the post wedding reception in our room and check out, NOTHING was too difficult or too much trouble.
The bookings had been changed (by me) a number of times but all were as requested on arrival, and upgrades gratefully rec'd despite full occupancy on some days.
The buffet breakfast is expansive, and our pre-wedding Chinese banquet was spot-on. Drinks on 23rd floor wine bar and the Tower lounge small eats and drinks were all attentively served and excellent value.
The SPA treatments were superb (if not exactly cheap) and put us all in the right mood.
Even the transport was there every time, exactly as expected (except once, totally outside the drivers control, when he wasn't allowed to park outside the Embassy).
The pool is small, but we didn't need it, so who cares!!
But special thanks to ALL the concierge staff - the ever-smiling, ever-helpful guest facing impression setters are a credit to the hotel. "Need some camera batteries? I'll nip out a couple of blocks and get them and bring them up to your room"!! Other hotels should learn from this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ConditionOne Great SPG property in Saigon!
I stayed here twice over the past week, and this is a great hotel in Saigon. Taxi fare to the hotel from the airport is approximately 140,000VND.
On my first stay, I saw that I was pre-upgraded to an Executive Suite. Upon checking my reservation a few hours prior to checking in, I saw I was downgraded to a Club Studio room (they must have given away my room to a guest that checked in earlier), which is pretty much an oversized junior suite. When checking in, I saw on my registration form that I was booked in an Executive Suite. When asked about my room actually given, I was told that my Club Studio was just as good as an Executive Suite. Uhh, right…but my room was fairly spacious and had a kitchenette with a stove, microwave, dishes, and eating utensils. Was given a Club Studio on my second stay, even though Executive Suites were available.
Three years ago, I stayed in the Towers. I believe the only difference between my room in the main hotel and the Tower rooms, is that the main rooms are your standard Sheraton style room, while the Towers rooms are more modern. The executive lounge in the Towers is light years better than the standard lounge, which only serves drinks and snacks from 5pm-7:30pm. The standard lounge doesn’t serve afternoon tea or snacks, but soft drinks are available throughout the day. They served sushi, various appetizers, dessert, and two hot selections (fried spring rolls, and fried shrimp).
The gym is spacious, has lots of machines aerobic machines and weights.
As a platinum, you can eat breakfast in the Executive Lounge, or in Café Saigon, in addition to your 500 point amenity. The restaurant downstairs has a very impressive spread. Everything from beef rendang to ice cream. Eat in the restaurant; it’s a no brainer. As a bonus, the food is slightly different every day.
As a side note, there’s a small casino on the first floor of the hotel. It’s mostly slot machines, Blackjack (US$20 minimum bet), roulette, and baccarat. No craps. Darn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by chribui Exellent stay, small hiccup not spoil
I had 2 excellent stays here. The room is super spacious, bed extremely comfortable, even though my 7 months old baby also enjoyed the bed :-). Food are excellent for both breakfast and dinner.
Staffs are helpful and polite. Whatever you need for a stay, they are there. I love the water system in the bath room. Just so much enjoyed it.
A small suggestion, hotel maybe should provide the comb in the room, not upon request. I think every one needs a comb.
Everything was pleasure until check out. But the taxi driver had spoiled our last minute til flight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wing Staff must follow guest choices
1) I follow hotel indication to put my towels on rack (will re-use) in order to save water.
However, the housekeeping staff changed my towels every day. It's good for hotel to be environmental conscious, but it means nothing if staff do not follow.
2) Suggest hotel to stop having 'Saigon tourist' taxi to service guests as the taxi team is thief! We had encountered 4 bad experiences. (Don't say we don't give them a chance.)They still trick people even if serving the hotel guests.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sak005 April business trip
On arrival great to get an upgrade and accommodation for an extra night which I had thought I had booked but it was my error which they accommodated and that was great. Main areas of disappointment is being charged for bringing a guest into the Grand Tower Lounge which I have to say is ridiculous as their is no extra charge if your a couple and my stays at other hotels has never incurred this additional cost. Main reason for booking club privileges is so as you can invite clients for a meeting and sometimes what a better way than over a breakfast or evening Horse d'oeuvre s. in addition for an upmarket club suite the room had an issue with small bugs which even after being sprayed reappeared a day later. In addition the waiters in the Grand Tower Lounge are very in your space and tend to watch each and every movement making the experience very uncomfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jonesy68 Fitness center
This is by far the best fitness center I have experienced that was located within the confines of the hotel. Serious weight lifters are often disappointed when the average hotel has a bow flex and a couple of cardio machines at best. The Sheraton had a good selection of dumbells, lifestyle machines, and even an adjustable flat bench complete with an Olympic barbell, and plenty of weights, it also has a great cable machine. Rounding out your experience is an option to purchase a protein shake afterwards. Outstanding for a short stay at a hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Taci Overall above comparable hotels in the area.
I stayed here for three nights for New Year, And also two other hotels in the same price range and area.
Sheraton has larger room, both standing and a bath tube while the other has only one type. I like that Sheraton has a girl in traditional dress open the lobby door instead of three to four guys cluster together at the lobby door. Front desk service is excellent, Sheraton is in the mid range, not as new as some but newer than some. But it has the tall view that some new hotels can't offer.
I would stay at Sheraton again for the view, lobby lively atmosphere, traditional music in the evening, large room and the overall service from the staff.
Side note: Sheraton bathroom door is a Japanese style sliding door, which can be counter-intuitive. On my first arrival, my wife push it open instead of slide it and the wood board on top falls off and left a bruise on her upper arm.
