I am currently at the caravelle hotel and I am more than disappointed. This hotel is certainly not a 5 star hotel. It is maybe a 3 star. I would suggest staying elsewhere if you come to Saigon because you will be hugely disappointed if you stay here hoping for a true 5 star hotel. Giant stains all over the... More

Loved the hotel - room - view - gym - bar with a view was amazing.... The best was the staff - Someone that really stood out (always someone - either good or bad it seems) But this guy was EXCELLENT - a bellman that always greeted me and assisted me - don't remember his name but he had braces...

I wasn't sure what to expect as we booked the double deluxe room for $100 a night including breakfast. But we needn't have worried as the hotel was possibly one of the best we have ever stayed in - especially for the price we paid. The rooms are huge and well appointed and the bed was just luxe and comfortable.... More

We stayed at the Caravelle for almost a week while visiting the area for business and leisure. While a historic property located very centrally in Saigon, I'm not really sure what the value proposition of this property is versus other hotels in the area. The place is STILL under construction, making for a very awkward experience..you enter in through the... More

Fantastic hotel. Excellent facilities and very friendly staff. Breakfasts great, accommodation really good. Can't fault anything about this establishment. I would highly recommend it. Even eating in house was reasonable. They even have a pillow menu !!

Great intro if you've never been to Vietnam - I attended a conference at this hotel. We spent the first few days in a small boutique hotel in district 3 where we had acclimatised to street/small restaurants. There's no shortage of restaurants around this hotel, all varieties. Amenities including fitness centre and health spa are great; all staff very attentive... More

My husband and I stayed at the Caravelle Hotel for 4 nights in early June at the beginning of our Vietnam holiday. Everything about this hotel is 5 star worthy - the rooms, the staff, the pool and the spa etc, but it is its central location within the craziness of Ho Chi Minh that really stood out. The Caravelle... More

The Caravelle has a great history and I'm not surprised it has survived as long as it has. From the near perfect breakfast buffet to the soft beds and the welcome as you enter the hotel it is very professional. There is free fast WiFi throughout the hotel and the service from all staff is prompt and friendly although at... More

Excellent location within the Center of District One making all sightseeing locally easy. Mostly within walking distance. While there were some renovations taking place these didn't bother me at all. All requests I made regarding my room were fulfilled (no smoking, overlooking the pool for quiet, near the lift). Room was very clean and bathroom was nice. Staff were always... More
