We chose to stay at the Caravelle Hotel on the basis of its fabulous central location (for touring), and the nice pool (for afternoon relaxation) and were not disappointed.
A number of key tourist sites in HCMC are within walking distance to the Caravelle (and there were an abundance of taxi for those hotter mornings/ afternoons), and the hotel can provide you with details of a suggested walking route.
We stayed in a Deluxe Premium room in the "new" tower which was incredibly spacious (there was still couch/ lounge space even after allowing for a king bed, single bed). These rooms are all designated non-smoking, plush, comfortable and very well looked after by Housekeeping.
This hotel is a favourite for business travellers, so expect all the nice touches that come with this (e.g. turn-down chocolates each night, luxury toiletries, a great variety of fresh food at the breakfast buffet, professional concierge tour booking and door people). Despite the business-based clientele, we also found it to be incredibly family- friendly, with Staff going out of their way to make our 5 year old son feel welcome each day. My husband thought the gym was well equipped, while our little guy just loved swimming in the pool after touring each day. The Caravelle is a great place to stay.
