Empress Hotel conveniently locates right in the middle of HCMC's district 1. The hotel is managed by HK group including GM who ran several 5 stars properties in the island. According to mgmt, the hotel is going through multiphase renovation and just completed its latest phase. Fortunately, they have not yet raised their star rating nor their price. So you... More

The price is reasonable for a very clean and well maitained hotel. Located 5 mins drive and 15 mins walk from the hotel to the famous Ban Thai Market & Saigon Square. The hotel also closely located near the infamous red lights shops.

I found this hotel to be very good in the rooms. They were clean and well appointed. Not huge, but sufficient. My view was only of a cement building side next door, but at least the traffic noise was not bad that way. My only question when registering would be the status of their construction. They are redoing the entire... More

A real nice, small,comfortable, accommodating hotel in District 1 HCMC. Close to everything and a nice restaurant as well. Rooms are smallish but comfortable and air conditioned. Staff is very helpful and I would definitely stay here again on my next visit. Over last 10 years I have probably spent about 25 nights in this hotel--2 thumbs up.

A lovely hotel in a great, central location. The staff were most helpful & the room was good. Although we had breakfast as part of our stay, the street filled up with vendors early in the morning & I got breakfast out there. I highly recommend getting up early to do this as they are usually all gone by 8am.

Thank Suzanne K
