“Wonderful start to holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

This was my first time in Vietnam & my holiday got off to a great start at the Duxton. The staff were very friendly & couldn't have been more helpful. Rooms were very comfortable & very clean - restaurant was good too. There is a lovely little piano bar which is very relaxing & as I was on my own the first night I ordered food from the restaurant which was brought to me in the bar (where I was comfortably ensconced enjoying the music). The hotel desk also exchanges currency so I didn't have to look for somewhere to do that. They also provided me with a map & directions to go exploring the city. Would stay again.

A good hotel with a great location for exploring the city. walking distance to the river and the city centre, friendly courteous staff, large clean bedroom with good views of the city. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice for everyone.

This hotel is very nice - clean, rooms are lovely & get cleaned very often (at least twice a day). Breakfast was fabulous (although I found the breakfast staff to be very cold, bordering on rude), but the food and selection was great! All other staff were fantastic - the cleaning staff were the most friendly! Barman was great, front desk staff good too.

Room service food was tasty & came quickly.

The pool was a big let down. Not a very nice area, and past 1pm doesn't get any sun.

Hotel location is a big plus! Near the action & near some great restaurants, the river, cheap (but nice) massage place next door.

This is a lovely hotel, nothing wrong with it, but nothing to make it stand out either.

Stayed here for 3 nights in May 2013. The hotel is situated near the riverfront, about a 2 minute walk. Modern building, with outside swimming pool, a gym and a spa. Nice bar near the lobby, drinks reasonably priced.

Originally booked a deluxe room but, as I was celebrating my 50th birthday my husband asked to upgrade to a club room at a slight surcharge but, it was worth it. The rooms were well equipped with a view towards the riverfront. As we were in club rooms you had the added bonus of having afternoon tea each day, my god the food they give you was lovely far too much for 2 people but, we managed to work our through it. You could also access this club room throughout the day for hot or cold drinks and snacks. Well worth the upgrade.

The staff here were very pleasant and efficient and met any queries we had.

Room Tip: Club rooms, higher floors and extra benefits, access to club lounge all through the day, afternoon t...

Nice, hotel, wonderful staff (except the check in lady who left in the middle of checking us in to serve someone else...)
Nice clean rooms, decent enough size, FREEZING aircon though, we struggled to get the room at a nice temperature.
Breakfast was a nice mix of Asian and Western style food, and there was a nice bar in the lobby. the lobby bar had a pianist which was nice entertainment but stopped at 9pm, ourselves and other guests commented that they had returned to the bar for a quiet drink and to listen to the music before bed, perhaps even continuing until 10pm would make a difference.
Pool was nothing special, but was nice and clean and good for a little dip after wandering around Saigon.

Location is fantastic, 5 mins from river, and lots of good restaurants around. La Nicoise we took from other recommendations on tripadvisor was fantastic, the Italian restaurant we were not so impressed with.

Would stay here again.

We stayed two nights here up on the 7th floor. Room was a typical corporate room but to a good standard and appreciated in the busy, chaotic city of Saigon. Interestingly the locals seem to prefer to call the place Saigon rather than Ho Chi Min City as it is called after the Saigon river and the name has been in use for a couple of hundred years.

Breakfast is good and the staff attentive and speak good English.

Only minor point is that they insist on playing music over the speakers in the hallways which can be heard inside the room. The first night we asked for it to be turned off, which it was but next morning it came back. This time we waited to see what happened and when we came back after a night out it had stopped.
Lots to see in Saigon, the CIA building where the Americans finally baled out, the War Remnants Museum and the Cu Chi tunnels are well worth the visit.
