Smashing 5 star hotel with a history. Great pool and comfortable beds. Great breakfast. Rooms might be just getting a little tired but they're perfectly lovely with big windows and good views. Best of all is the sublime service and hospitality.

2 night stay in this luxurious hotel in central HCM city. The room was excellent and massive - possibly the largest we've ever had anywhere. Reception service while very friendly was somewhat disordered. Breakfast was a tad disappointing compared with the very high quality of others we had on this trip (Cruiseco Mekong cruise) but the room and location was... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights with a group. I was a little disappointed with the hotel. Its location is very good. However, it is a very old hotel and currently undergoing renovation. From TripAdvisor reviews I understand that the renovation has been going on for quite some time. The lobby is very small and I don't think... More

It is a good hotel but, looking at picures, we thought it was a luxury hotel. They do not turn ac on in hallways to save money. In 90F, does not make sense. Rooms are like a typical business hotel. Location is great.

Although we did not stay at this hotel, we popped in to see if they served afternoon tea. To our relief they did. The experience was wonderful, from the service and friendliness of the staff (especially the Japanese manager) to the choice of both savoury and sweet delights. It was lovely to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle... More

We stayed here twice for two days in time in November. The hotel is in District 1 which appears to be where the majority of hotels are. Our room was large with a king size bed, couch and work table. The bathroom had all the emeritus needed including razor, comb, toothbrush, etc. the breakfast buffet was exceptional with western dishes... More

Just returned home from 8 days in Vietnam including a three night stay at the Caravelle. Yes, there is construction going on but it doesn't detract from the beauty of the hotel at all and is mostly confined to the lower perimeter. We were on the 19th floor with an amazing view of the river and enjoyed watching the sun... More

Just back from a super quick business trip to Sth East Asia and the top hotel experience for me was at the Caravelle in Ho Chi Minh City.

We stayed here for 3 days as part of a Scenic Tours trip. We could not have asked for anything better. Our room was large, spotlessly clean and most comfortable. We were right in the middle of everything and had only a short walk to see the sights. The staff were most friendly and helpful.My wife took photos of all... More

Located right next door to the Opera House in HCMC's District 1 the Caravelle Hotel is very handy to restaurants with a heady range of cuisines and must-see sights (eg view of the city at sunset and nightfall from Bitexco Tower, the Fine Arts Museum). It's a great base for your very own walking tours of the city as well... More
