This is my second visit to Liberty Central which is a lovely hotel in the heart of HCMC. Excellent location right next to the markets. Lovely pool on the roof to escape the heat of the city. Value for money I rate this hotel very highly. The staff at reception are very friendly and attentive. They organised a taxi at a moments notice, stored our bags after checkout and allowed us to return to the hotel for a shower before our flight home. Breakfast is sensational as well. Can't fault it.
I have stayed that this A&EM before and my review is based on the previous stay. I booked this hotel for my latest trip and after arriving found that there was a major renovation underway. Due to the noise and dust I requested to be moved to the A&EM just around the corner. They were happy to do the change for me and helped carry my bag around the corner. Great people, safe hotel chain located in a very good area.
Hotel excellent however on a down side we asked the hotel to obtain train tickets to Nha trang. We requested soft seats. Tickets
Were obtained however when we arrived at the train rather than soft seats we were in a 4 berthcabin. The two top bunks were our actual seats. As we are in our 70s climbing up was an impossibility. When we checked the prices we were charged over 600000 dong each, that was twice the price. An englishspeaking lady in our cabin suggested we had been charged extra for the obtaining and delivering the tickets to the hotel. Not a word of that extra was mentioned to us.
I sent an email to the hotel speeking clarification, to date some 5 days later , not a whisper.
Not a good finish to our stay in Saigon and not good administration from a top hotel.
