When my taxi was approaching the Caravelle, I was somewhat disappointed not being booked at one of the hotels in the neighbourhood located in great looking buildings, whereas the Caravelle is in a modern, but somewhat faceless one. But my concerns where dispelled when entering the lobby. The ambience is elegant and modern. Check-in was very quick (check-out too, collecting your credit card signature on iPads). The rooms are big, nicely decorated, and well appointed.
They have a nice rooftop bar, with happy hour from 5-7:00 pm. The breakfast buffet is huge and the quality of the food good.
To sum it up, the Caravelle is a good choice when staying in Saigon, even for a discerning traveller.
