First of all, I thought the rate for a five-star hotel was great! (about $180/night). I was impressed by the Caravelle and would say it's much better than The Majestic (another 5-star option where we stayed a night on this same trip). The Caravelle is right in front of the Opera House in district 1, so the location can't be beat. I was also impressed by the service - a cab driver ripped us off on the ride from the airport and the Caravelle actually followed up with the cab company repeatedly. The detail that I liked best, however, was that since we were going to miss breakfast (early flight), they packed it to go for us! A nice touch.
Oh, a word about the included buffet breakfast: WOW. Amazing! sushi, vietnamese cuisine, chinese dim sum, also western fare (lots of pastries, eggs, fresh fruit). It was much nicer than the Majestic's spread, and all very high quality!!!
