Hotel Continental Saigon
Ranked #70 of 458 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Had everything that we wanted - a feel of the colonial era in a courtyard facing room that was clean and recently refurbished while keeping the wood-paneled style. Great service and buffet breakfast under the frangipani trees. No noise from the road but a central location that meant we could walk to everywhere. Comfortable beds and room WiFi without any login hassles.

Stayed in a junior suite with a balcony overlooking the old opera house. Our room was fully renovated just a few days before our arrival. (they are renovating all the rooms on the 1st floor (actual 2nd floor)). So we had brand new carpet, paint and a completely refurbished bathroom. Of course all the original wood work remained and was nicely cleaned. The room was huge.

It overlooked the street which presented memorable views, but it came with the cost of traffic noise (the ice cream trucks parked near the opera house was the worst). I guess this is all part of staying in the heart of Saigon. The noise would die down around 10 pm and would not pick back up until around 9 am, so sleeping was not a problem.

Breakfast was incredible. The dining room was beautiful and the morning weather perfect for having breakfast in an open patio. Lots and lots of selections, unlimited coffee, and made to order omelets.

The area around the hotel is somewhat touristy, with the typical name brand overpriced fashion stores. With that you have overpriced restaurants. So, each evening we would walk 2 - 3 blocks and we found some really good authentic restaurants.

We posted a video of the hotel on our photography travel website quickadventures.net

Room Tip: With most of Vietnam hotels being so cheap, pay the extra money while in Saigon and get a suite with...

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
