On our last night in Saigon we decided to stay at one of the original hotels in Saigon (built around 1924). Good location within working distance to restaurants, shops, night market.
On check-in, Fleur upgraded our room to a room over looking the river with a balcony (Level 3, in the old section). The size of the room was grand, plenty of suitcase room, bed/pilows amazing, small table/chair setting,fresh fruit awaiting - lovely layout. Air-conditioning worked well, bathroom great size and well appointed.
The pool area was well kept, spotless infact. The pool staff so friendly and made you feel very very welcome. Served amazing Mojito's. The pool area only has sun between 10am - 2pm which is enough and it was nice to get into a refreshing cold pool (as most others during out trip had been like a warm bath).
Breakfast selection was good and plentiful but not amazing (maybe I had expected too much). Staff very friendly.
Rooftop Bar - we went up on the Friday night around 10pm and the atmosphere was lovely with a view of the river and a band playing. Service was great and I liked the fact that we only had casual clothes on and was still welcomed by the staff.
Overall it was definitely worth the experience to stay in the beautiful Hotel, staff service from check-in to check-out was of high quality.
