Have stayed here twice in the last few years and the hotel is spacious, cool and welcoming. Breakfast in the courtyard is wonderful and was one of the best we experienced in Vietnam. We were upgraded to suites with great views over to the Opera House. The rooms are huge and while the hotel may be old the fittings and beautiful woodwork create a lovely atmosphere. Staff are reserved but very helpful with suggestions for dinner and directions. The hotel is central to everything and provides a cool oasis during the very humid days.

Room Tip: Pick a room looking over towards the Opera House - they are large and surprisingly not noisy from t...

A historic property to stay in Saigon, we just loved it, takes you back in time...

located in the heart of magical Saigon. The best shopping areas, malls, restaurants

to modern standards.All in all our best stay in Vietnam.

Room Tip: Facing the opera house.

This hotel was built in the late 1800 and they have kept this design going with modern rooms to todays standards. The wood work of the doors and furniture is very pleasing to the eye and heavy to the touch (mahogany). There are even some carved ceilings and the decor is to match. Located in mid town and walking distance to shops hotels and makets.

Room Tip: We had inside room very quiet. Outside room some had balcony facing the street looked very interesti...

My husband and I simply loved the Hotel Continental Saigon. This is an historic hotel in the heart of the most posh part of Ho Chi Minh City -- central to the best sites and the best shopping in the city. Our room was so lovely, and it had a balcony that looked out on to the Opera...we spent a lot of time on the balcony. The bathroom was great with a tub that was small in stature, but so well designed that I used it 3 separate times for long soaks. We stayed here at the end of a 3-week trip, and it was our favorite hotel...also the best breakfast. Not only was the breakfast selection great, but you have your choice to sit inside or outside in the courtyard. I can understand why this hotel wouldn't work for everyone: if you need to have a pool, it won't work for you. But, if you love staying in historic hotels, this is a not-to-be-missed property. My only disappointment was that the hotel didn't have any information on its history -- we would have purchased a book on the hotel had one been available.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony! Also, they are refurbishing the rooms, but we actually liked the "o...

The colonial charm of this hotel is essential. From the white architectural design to the wooden fornitures of the rooms, everything reminds the colonial period, of course only talking of the romantic idea of that period!
Rooms are huge and clean and with all the comfort.
The batrooms are a little bit old: ceramics and fittings suffer the passing of time. But the water is hot, the shower works and you can find all what uou need.
Breakfast is great and you can take it in the wonderful garden in a classical colonial.
