We spent a week at the Caravelle as a mix of holiday and business. The location is excellent and I cannot imagine better as it is right in the heart of Saigon. We had a city-view room and had a superb view across the opera house to the famous Hotel Continental (Quiet American fame). We were on the 12th floor which was high enough to be quiet, but close enought so see all that was happening below.
Apart from the nuissance of slow lifts (a nine month update process) the hotel functioned well. We particularly enjoyed the delicious buffet breakfast and the pool
My only other complaint was that our towels were replaced at least daily and sometimes more, despite the hotels green credentials. I did mention it to the hotel and they were quick to assure me that the issue would be addressed. I suspect that the problem was that staff were too keen to keep everything in order and I have every reason to believe that management took my comments seriously.
I am more than happy to recommend it.
