Great shopping and a variety of quality restaurants are close by and it's easy walking distance to the markets and Saigon Central. The complimentary buffet breakfast is superb and the staff are truly wonderful. The Supervisor Mr. Quyen is so...

On previous trips to the city we have stayed further out so we're delighted to be so close to everything. We made use of the spa which despite a problem with the booking which led to a delay, was very good. The downside was the powdered instant coffee at breakfast. We've travelled extensively and even in 2* establishments that has...

Across the street from the OPERA theater. Walked through many shopping areas and to the French Cathedral. There are many good restaurants along the streets and inside the hotel. Good choice for a central location hotel.

We were staying at the Hotel Continental Saigon for 2 nights and then another 1 night after an overnight trip to the Mekong Delta. Hotel Continental Saigon was built in 1880 and the first hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. I immediately fell in love with the hotel, with its beautiful architecture and history. This is an old colonial building...

If you want to experience an old colonial kind of stay, Hotel Continental Saigon is a place worth trying. The rooms are extremely spacious. You can choose to have the Opera View rooms for a nice view overlooking the Opera House. The breakfast is not bad. The location is central and am sure you will love the stay!

The Hotel Continental Saigon is not the most luxurious hotel I have visited, nor is it the most comfortable; but it may be the most characterful. It has a real old world French colonial charm. The Opera View Suite was quite beautiful and very spacious. The location of the hotel is excellent. Breakfast is pretty good, about standard for a...

By far the worst hotel we have stayed in Vietnam and also the most expensive. Hotel has lost it's charms, it seems that it is trying to trade off it's former glory and reputation that it no longer deserve. On top of that, you have staff that are unfriendly and a doorman that couldn't care less about opening the door....
