We booked this hotel literally minutes before turning up (due to a mix up at our original hotel) so our reservation wasn't even on the system, but the staff checking us in were still very polite and professional. We had a room on the 19th floor with wonderful views over HCM. The rooms are gorgeous, beautifully decorated with plenty of...

Very impressive centrally located hotel ideal for sight seeing. Hotel staff are very welcoming on arrival, opening doors for you, smiling and attentive at all times. Swift check in, shown to our modern room 910. Didn't upgrade to a Signature room as only stayed 3 nights and didn't consider would benefit overall from the price we paid. Room large, spotlessly...

We enjoyed four lovely nights at the Caravelle in April 2014 - a fab hotel in an excellent location and easy walking to everything. We took the 'Signature Lounge' option and it's certainly worth it. Breakfast and pre-dinner canapes/drinks (excellent food & wine) on 9th floor are outstanding & makes this option excellent value. Reception/check-in was smooth with a very...

I stayed at this hotel in April. The staff were friendly and helpful, room large, clean and overlooked the river. The hotel is in a very good area of the city.

We were fortunate to have had this hotel selected by my travel agent. Our original request had been for the Grand and it did not have any rooms left. The welcome was very warm and inviting. Everyone was friendly, our first real encounter with the cordiality of the Vietnamese in general. We were shown up to our opulent room with...

Third time I have stayed in the Caravelle, and it keeps getting better all the time. Besides the large, comfortable and luxury rooms, the hotel has one of the best fitness centers of any hotel you can find. Overlooking the beautiful pool area while doing your morning treadmill.
