We were booked into the famous Historic Caravelle Hotel. We were told that this hotel played an important part in Vietnam's history as many journalists and others were staying here at the time of the US war-The hotel is in the heart of downtown or District 1 and is near the main French built Opera house and other high end shops- The entrance is beautiful and from the moment you step out of your car / cab you feel a warm welcome into the main hotel.
An efficient staff is at the reception and you are checked in without much waiting-a bell boy is ready to take your bags to your rooms
The rooms are spacious and clean and the beds, they are so COMFORTABLE THAT ONE DOES NOT LIKE TO WAKE UP BUT JUST KEEP SNUGGLING IN.....THE LAST TIME WE ENJOYED THIS KIND OF COMFORT WAS IN MELBOURNE AT THE MARRIOT.BTW the beds are super King size! WiFi is free, Bottles of drinking water given daily with the room
We had breakfast included and the spread that was laid out was just EXCELLENT-The variety of cold cuts, Asian fare , Western fare . various delicious pastries. fruits and a whole lot more! If one sat there for 2 hours one need not have had dinner ! Alas! we just kept to our light breakfast but for someone who is real Hungry it would satisfy the worst kind of hunger , with a lot left over! for others-The attendants were vigilant and ever ready in case the guest needed anything-
We would rate this hotel a full 6stars
Unfortunately we did not take any pictures of the hotel!
