“A classic business property not ideally located”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014

We stayed there for three nights to visit Saigon at the end of our Vietnam trip.
The Sofitel Saigon is a very classical business hotel: big, clean, with excellent service, a very good spa.
The rooms were a little small even though we had Executive Rooms.
The location is not ideal for tourists as it is a little outside the animated Bar&Restaurant area.
Prices are high, as expected.
Breakfast was good.
The hotel offers a great pool at the 18th floor with a view on the city!

Room Tip: Ask for elevated rooms. Ideally above the 14th floor.

Thanks for having Chosen Sofitel for your stay in Saigon and for sharing your comments on Trip Advisor.

We are glad to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and the service extended to you. On the subject of the hotel not being ideally located for tourists, most of our leisure guests to actually disagree and find the location to be ideal, being close enough to attractions and restaurants and also on a quieter street with higher sense of safety. Not to mention the shuttle service that the hotel provides.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

With our best regards,

Recently had 2 short stays at This hotel and I think it was one of the best hotels I have stayed in anywhere.
From the front desk to all staff any where in the hotel.....excellent
The rooms.....excellent, spotlessly clean, fresh and inviting.
The food.....above excellent...we had room service, restaurant, breakfast. And all were wonderful...the variety, quality, and choice were top class.
Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone and will certainly return in the not too distant future....Carolyn

Room Tip: We had two different rooms...both excellent. Upgrade your room to have access to club lounge on lev...

I was goings to write amazing experience but "beautiful" is a much more accurate description of the experience of this hotel. The staff are gorgeous, and staying at this hotel is a joy. I could say how close you are to some of the major attractions, but you can look that up on a map, I could tell you how wonderful the food is but you need to try it for yourself, the attention to detail is unsurpassed, the flowers in the hotel moved me to taking photos of each and every vase,not something I normally do, it is truly a wonderful "experience". Everything at this hotel is truly lovely, the staff seem to enjoy what they do and that reflects in the service they provide.i would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 17 th floor but I believe any room would be great

Was only there for one night, but the service and breakfast were both superb. Amazing food selection, and staff were fantastic. Would recommend to all. Great location perfect for exploring the city. Nice gym

Spent a week in Saigon at the Sofitel, the room was clean and well appointed.
The food could not be faulted. Breakfast selection was amazing, and evening meal options just great.
Well located hotel, easy walk to most of the must see sights.
Roof top pool was clean and well organized.
Can't recommend enough.
A must stay for location, comfort and value for money.

Location is very convenient, short walk to the cathedral, zoo, war museum & shopping centers. Hotel staff were all more than helpful & accommodating. Truly a 5 star experience with the best breakfasts I have ever had, including choice of eggs, smoked fish, pho, sushi, all sorts of fruit at their peak of ripeness. Room was more than comfortable, although a little on the small side. Excellent bathroom with robes & just about anything you might need. Quite expensive, but you more than get what you pay for. I will certainly return look forward to staying there.
