This was my first stay at Caravelle , been to HCM few times and decided to check it out fr myself. The roof top bar is very nice, live band .. Nice hang out, packed both nights I was there ( Sunday and Friday )
The pool area is nice but a bit chilly in Jan. Those caring fr a decent gym won't be disappointed. Breakfast buffet is really nice. Beds are comfortable - no complaints. In the heart of the area,walking distance to pretty much everything ... District 1 - everything is in walking area but if u take a taxi to THE NIGHT LIFE (duong bui Vien) area it's a few dollars -usd$ - taxis are cheap so don't fuss too much .. This is def must go too area fr those wanting a bit more local scene than district 1
However for those seeking cheaper accommodation but same area- there are many other hotels literally across the street that maybe cheaper IF U Care not fr gym - or pool or intending to spend much time in hotel. Continental is across the street ( literally) so is the Hyatt so are many other hotels across the street and 1-2 blocks away from caravelle ...if ur main concern is location & $$ BC the cost for bfast and drinks are based on standard us prices at caravelle- same goes fr Sheraton .. Bfast approx 20- 25 pp..
If ur concerned abt western comfort .. This is a good choice... I've stayed at Sheraton also in hcm( 2 blocks away) and same level I feel as caravelle .
On this trip I also stayed at The Majestic hotel which I will write a separate review ...
P.s there are many many rooftop bars in Hcm .. It's common so pls don't take the caravelle rooftop bar as a deciding factor fr choosing this hotel .. Lots of hotels have rooftop bar so keep searching . But it's a def stop in at caravelle roof top !
Hyatt has 50% off happy hour and bar appetizers from 5 pm to 8 pm - nice bar and a must go !!!!
