Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This colossal European architecture is a reminder of Saigon's colonial legacy. Although renamed to Ho Chi Minh City after its fall to the communists in 1975, the former city hall still serves as government building. Unfortunately it is not open to public.

Wow what a stunning building! We only saw it during the day but it was specular, and all around and in the square opposite were perfectly manicured trees and plants adding to its splendour appearance

The building looks fantastic in the evening. Many people in the square. Good to take photos. The walking street in front of the committee building is worth walking and exploring. Sometimes there are street performers.

Never been inside the Complex but have seen this building in war and peace. Peace is better. I mentioned that this building was behind the statue of Ho Chi Minh and the Rex Hotel. It is still impressive day or night.

The decisions made inside this building has led to millions of ruined lives. A good sight from outside but pure bad decisions made inside

Very nice colonial building located in a central area surrounded by shops and eating places. Combine the visit with Ho Chi Minh Squares and the Opera House. Best visited in the evening and at night when the weather is more agreeable.

This is another of the more attractive colonial buildings to admire whilst in HCMC. Located at one end of Nguyen Hue street it looks particularly good when all lit up at night. Not possible to go inside. Visited in March 2020.
