The Hotel is perfectly located in District one for all the major tourist attractions many of which are within walking distance to the Hotel. The Staff at the Hotel were exceptionally helpful. The roof top bar was a great place to relax after taking in the sight of the city. The breakfast was very good and offered a good variety... More

As noted in many of the other reviews here on TA, there are many wonderful things about the Caravelle. The location is flawless and the views out on the Opera House are beautiful. The staff is excellent and extremely professional. The lobby is gorgeous and the Saigon Saigon bar is classic and a must visit. So much history at this... More

We had a great stay overall at this Saigon landmark (dating back to 1959 when it was the most modern, happening hotel in town). The location is perfect... right across from Opera House and a block from Ho Chi Minh Square. It's also at most five blocks to virtually all the tourist destinations in town (Notre Dame, Post Office, Reunification... More

I stayed here for 4 Nights and decided, when I booked, to pay for the privilege of staying on the Club Floor as I was hoping for a room that was not dated and tired. Unfortunately my room was just that ! The room smelt musty and stale and the bathroom was so out of date. Having said that Housekeeping... More

Located in city center within walking distance of 24 hr central Post Office, night market, Opera, Cathedral, Starbucks, Hard Rock. The bed gets an A+ for comfort even w/o our foam topper.

We spent three wonderful nights in this outstanding hotel. The hotel was spacious, with a number of facilities and restaurants along with good room sizes where we had a good view of the city and Saigon River glimpses from the 12th floor. We took 2 one day private tours arranged through the hotel. The tours were in a Mercedes E200.... More

Only stayed 2 nights but the place was spotless. A great location right in the middle of all the action. Arrived late in the evening so had the food from the tapa's bar which was superb. The buffet breakfast was good and although our stay was a short one, I would definitely come back.
