We booked the Majestic for the last 2 nights of our 40-day visit to Vietnam. I wanted one 5-star experience after several backpacker-level nights. The Majestic was perfect -- even though it was a splurge for us, there were great summer rates available on the internet. The location right on the river was super -- I think much better than the locations of the Caravelle, Rex or other 5-star options. The lobby was splendid with chandeliers and opulence -- again much more pleasant for me than the modern glass and chrome lobby of the Caravelle. The staff greeted us warmly and helped us arrange tours and airport transfers. We had a colonial room with a pool view, which was quite nice with all the right touches. The marble bathroom was awesome and I was particularly happy to see a bathroom scale was included! The turn down service each night included 2 pieces of chocolate!! A real luxury -- since chocolate seems to be pretty rare in Vietnam. The breakfast buffet was bountiful - great made to order eggs, french pastries, lots of fruit. We enjoyed drinks at the roof top bar overlooking the river. The location was great for taking a dinner cruise and for walking to all of the sights in District 1. The perfect end for our trip!
