Hotel Continental Saigon
Ranked #67 of 468 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Reviewed December 31, 2012

As mentioned by others, the hotel is charming.
We were pleased to get a room on the second floor that faced the inner courtyard, but for three evenings running, we have had the added "pleasure " of listening to very loud music from wedding parties going on literally below our windows. Even though Vietnamese wedding receptions/dinners only last about three hours, this is a bit much and no warnings have been given. With sound rehearsals etc several hours beforehand, we find this rather tiring, especially up to a New Years evening when we would have liked an afternoon nap.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing inner courtyard, go for traffic noise instead!

Lovely old, elegant and charming hotel in a great location (get room with balcony). Little dated,especially the bathrooms, but the location and elegance made up for it. Great breakfast choices. Would be better with a pool.Bit noisy due to the traffic around the square.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the front if you want a balcony overlooking the square and hustle and bustle. We ha...

We chose this hotel because of the history. High ceilings, old wooden furniture - this place had an atmosphere of decayed grandeur which really appealed - until we realized rats were included in the package and running around in the dining room as we ate our dinner. "Sorry about the mouse, it's because this hotel is old!" said the waitress, but they weren't mice, they were solid-looking rats, and that may have explained why most of the people who stay in this hotel seem to opt to dine elsewhere in the evening. Apart from that, the hotel was fine, but I strongly recommend to the hotel management that they get a vermin extermination program going quickly, because at the prices they charge, rats are simply not acceptable!

Room Tip: Ask for a garden room; it's quieter

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...

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.
