We stayed there at the beginning of a month long trip around South East Asia in order to treat ourselves a little, and what a treat it was. After being picked up from the airport, we arrived at the hotel during the evening and were struck at how beautiful the hotel and surrounding grounds were. Realising that we had struck gold we were welcomed with a refreshing drink and shown to our room. The room was fantastic, with a view overlooking the Saigon river, with complimentary hand made chocolates awaiting our arrival. Breakfast the next morning was one of the best I have ever had, with asian and western dishes on offer, we were informed by Yega, the hotel manager, that we could have more than one, and that we did. Eggs benedict and french toast, some local asian delights, the names escape me, and a latte or two. As you can imagine all of the dishes that we had were top notch, we did even worry that we'd set the bar too high and that the rest of the food in Vietnam would be a dissapointment, luckily, fantastic cooking is more than common in Vietnam.
Having been struck by the architecture of the building we spoke to Yega about its history, I assumed it was a hundred years old and was shocked to be told that the Spanish built the building in 2006 and it was to act as their Consulate to be used to entertain foreign dignitaries and the like, only to then be sold as a result of the economic crisis.
All of the staff are helpful and always bringing ice cold water and offering drinks when lounging around the pool and they also know the local restaurants very well and gave some great recommendations, make sure you go to The Deck for dinner, take the hotel's personal boat for a little early evening treat. All in all, the service, food, and hotel are all fantastic and you certainly wouldn't regret staying for a night or two at the Villa Song Saigon.
