The Caravelle is an outstanding city centre hotel. The rooms are large, well appointed and equipped (including one of the easiest to use wi-fis around) and cleaned perfectly. The breakfast and dinner buffets are stunning to all the senses. And you can walk straight from the hotel to the city centre attractions - over the Chinese New Year, these included the amazing flower displays, as well as street dancers and performers. Yes, it costs to stay there, but a real five star experience.

We stayed the first two nights of our honeymoon here in Vietnam. The room was huge, clean and we were given a honeymoon cake on arrival in the room. Bathrooms are a tad dated but fine and the hotel location could not be beaten.
The Saigon bar on the roof of the old part of the hotel should not be missed especially when there's live music.

Room Tip: Go for a high room and back of hotel is quieter than front.

This is a fine hotel in a great location. I paid around $140 for a city view room (stunning view especially at night) which included breakfast. The rooftop pool is a good place to escape the chaos of HCMC and the adjacent gym is first rate. The breakfast buffet is something else and is enough reason alone to stay here - the choice of food is overwhelming but the quality is excellent. The bar on the 9th floor is a bit cheesy but worth a look to enjoy the colonial style and the views of the city. All the staff I encountered were great and overall the service and experience was faultless.

A true 5 star hotel that caters for everyone's needs. Superb experience and right in the heart of all that is happening in Saigon.

The best rooftop bar in the city and all the other facilities excellent.

Staff were great and the hotel car pick up at the airport the best way to arrive into a city that is a sprawling mass of motorcycles and cars.

Unbelievable value for money we will be back staying there again on our next visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Opera House

We stayed here for 2 nights in January before a week long cruise along Mekong River. It was very clean, we had a large bedroom with 2 (almost) double beds. Great views over cathedral . Breakfast was included in our rate and was first class with everything you could imagine in the buffet. We ate in one evening, again starter was buffet with loads of really fresh seafood - so fresh the crabs were still alive! Good rooftop bar that had a lively atmosphere . Also worth a visit is Rex hotel bar just down the road. Both hotels have a history.

Room Tip: We were on 17th floor and had good views. Lifts were good.

Great room great service. Stayed on executive floor free drinks and food early evening well worth the extra money. Great staff and service.

Restaurant op class and the bar on the rooftop (Saigon,Saigon) is a lot of fun with live music.

Room Tip: Stay on the executive floor if funds allow
