Right in the heart of HCM City the Continental is ideally situated for most of the sights and good eating and drinking are close by.
Service in the hotel was first class, but then again, service in Vietnam tends to very good all round from my experience. We arrived off an early train at 5.30 a.m. a full 8 hours before check in time and we were immediately shown to our room at no extra charge! Very impressed indeed at that!
The 'Executive' suite we had overlooked the opera house so the view was pretty good too. The room was beautifully fitted, faultlessly clean and very comfortable. There was a little traffic noise from street level, but if that is problem, then you probably shouldn't be in Saigon!
Eating and drinking in the hotel is very pricey - at least on a par with UK prices, but there are so many good eating/drinking houses nearby it is not really an issue.
Room charges are at pretty much European levels, so it isn't exactly a bargain. It is very good though and I would recommend it.More
