On our first visit to Vietnam we wanted location and history and we got all we hoped for at the Continental, we had a junior suite with a balcony overlooking the Opera House and only a short walk to other attractions -the rooms were large and well appointed and the bath was that large and deep you need a ladder...

We wanted a quality hotel where we could meet our son who lives in Vietnam. The Continental was just what we wanted, historic, large luxurious rooms, excellent bathroom and one of the best buffet breakfasts I have had. Would have been a five star review except for one negative. We flew in to Saigon early and arrived at the hotel...

I think the hotel has been able to keep some of the old charm. If you like modern then this isn't for you. We didn't go for an upgrade on the room but we had a standard which overlooked the courtyard. The room was large and tastefully done. The breakfast was good but nothing special although it was very nice...

I have stayed at the Continental a few times and have always enjoyed it - the older style of hotel offers large rooms - mine this time had superb view of the opera house (and, less fortunately, a nice loud reception of the 0800 Sunday concert on the opera house steps), a spacious sitting / work area and plenty of...

Grahams Greens noted haunt.elegance swooning with somewhat dated decore but extremely acceptable. Fantastic front of house personal. Step back in time and enjoy. Cocktails their speciality. Never came across any boutique beers though. Meals pleasant but nothing to rave over.Western prices for everything. Not bargain basement, but, to be expected Actually became our default afternoon location for its serenity.

This is a beautiful hotel, in fact, the first in Saigon. We spent four nights here. We booked an Opera Suite Room, and were thrilled to receive an upgrade to one of their Heritage rooms (not normally advertised). We spent our time in Room 214 made famous by Graham Greene, who wrote the novel, 'The Quiet American', whilst staying in...

One of, if not the oldest, grand hotels in Saigon, the Hôtel Continental was one of the first to be renovated by the "new" regime in the late 1980s, when foreign capital and tourism finally seemed like a good idea. For this you'll get an 1880s French colonial building with some features like lifts/elevator from the 1980s and a bathroom...

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The breakfast room and patio are beautiful. The selection of food was one of the best we had in our month in SE Asia. The rooms were clean and basic. The location was great. We loved that it was right across from the Opera House, as we went to a show there.

Very olde world hotel in the centre of the city. Fast efficient check in and a huge room facing the opera house on the 3rd floor. Comfortable bed and a spotlessly clean room.

The exterior looks promising but as soon as you enter your room this illusion is removed. Completely bland, they must have spent many years ripping out any character. Added to that an unpleasant, musty smell. Breakfast, adequate at best. All in all over priced and disappointing.
