Beautiful hotel in the best part of Saigon. It is just across the Opera House. Nice and easy walk to every main sight in the city. The rooms are very spacious but no doubt they need some more attention. The carpet was old and a bit musty. The housekeepers were extremely noisy from 6AM, chatting loudly and slamming the doors....

If you're after the old french colonial style, try the Continental Saigon hotel. Prices are reasonable for a palace (you can get a room for around 80$ breakfast included). It's like time stopped for at least 70 years. Rooms are very big with large windows. Breakfast is served in a veranda. The hotel also have a spa with sauna and... More

I booked the Continental mainly for nostalgia; we last visited Ho Chi Minh in 2001 and although we didn't stay there then, we sat outside in the cafe watching the world go by. I wish we had done the same this time too! The hotel was obviously a very grand affair in its day and was use by various correspondents... More

We booked a three day Premium Room package which included round trip transportation to and from the hotel as well as a "premium suite". On arrival at the airport, we waited 30 minutes for the hotel's car to arrive to pick us up. Unfortunately, the hotel car never came. My reaction at the time was this was not a major... More

Absolutely beautiful hotel, the beds were very hard but that is my only fault. It was very clean and oriental so you get a taste of the Vietnamese culture. The buffet breakfast was delicious with a lot of variety. It was in a very good location - it was only a very short walk into the hustle and bustle of... More

Legendary hotel, probably one of the best location in Saigon not to say the best. Nevertheless the rooms seriously need to be refurbished. The one were I stayed was really not suitable, definitely not a room when you travel for business. The desk was uncomfortable and connection uneasy. The potential of this hotel is enourmous, if it was refurbished it... More

The staff were really helpful and polite during our stay. We had a double room with a huge bed and a family suite with room for 3. They were both of great cleanliness and size. Breakfast was of good variety and you could sit in or outside. We would definitely return!
