I changed to Continental from an other 4 star hotel on the main boulevard after paying $300 for 2 nights stay in a small and aged room with a small tv, an on-off AC and broken Internet. In comparison the Continental is superb. I got an Oriental Suite for a promotional price of $149 a night and for me it... More

We splashed out for some comfort but the things it did have, such as a lounge- you didn't really need. The things you wanted like a pool- the hotel didn't have! Most other hcmc high end hotels offer this- which is very desirable after a long day in the sweltering heat. There is an element of grandeur but it all... More

Unfortunately, I think this hotel is like most of the top hotels in Ho Chi Minh. For 70-100 US dollars, this would have been an acceptable three star in Hungary but for $150 a night, there was dodgy a/c, the beds were made of iron as were the pillows, covered in poly-mix sheets, the bathrooms were last updated during the...

On an earlier visit to HMC we stayed at the Caravelle Hotel. Nice corporate style hotel, not great, and fairly sterile. Small restaurant for breakfast and tiny reception foyer. On our next trip we decided to stay at the Continental which is just across the square. It's old, but it was fantastic. We booked a room that overlooked the Opera... More

As practically every other reviewer has stated, the great pluses of this hotel are its comparatively reasonable price and its excellent location in the heart of Saigon with, for example, any number of good restaurants within walking distance. The hotel seems very impersonal though this may be a function of its size. The rooms, although large, lack any charm, and... More

A friend who's a HCMC local recommended this hotel - primarily for the location. Pluses: - she was right - location, location, location right next to the opera house smack bang in the centre of town (even the motorcycles go to bed late at night) - the BIG rooms (stayed 2x2 nights in deluxe rooms 306 and 305) - clean...

I visited the Saigon for business visit and my associates in Saigon suggested me to stay here. I was glad that I accepted their decision to book me at Continental. The great thing about hotel is the location which is in heart of city centre. Its located next to opera and in evenings, you can just sit on steps and... More

The room had a seperate sitting area and huge windows which looked out onto the street below. The breakfast at the hotel was absolutely delicious and the outdoor courtyard just added to the breakfast exerience. The staff... More

Absolutely perfect location, nice colonial style hotel. Rooms oldfashioned in the cool way. Not so friendly staff, though. Excellent breakfast buffet. Historical touch (as Graham Greene's "The Quiet American" lead character goes there).
