Breakfast at the Spring Hotel in Saigon (HCM City) is pure delight. There's good drip coffee and a nice array of standard Western offerings complemented by a plate of fresh local fruit. If eggs and bacon begin to bore you, ask for the 'order ahead' menu, which features a wide range of Vietnamese noodle soups and sweet rice dishes that can be 'ordered in' from a nearby restaurant. The hotel's cafe is spotless and service is flawlessly attentive.
For our 'standard' double room, we paid $47 per night, a good price for central Saigon.
The front desk and cleaning staff are also happy to help, as we found out when we decided that we must change our room. #803 had a dark carpet, damp under the desk -- possible place to harbor insects -- and after a bit of juggling we were moved to #105 for the rest of our week at the Spring Hotel. Both rooms were well appointed, with great lighting, but we preferred the arrangement and marble tiled floor of #105. Each room has a self-operated safe for guests' valuables.
There are no vent fans in the bathrooms; thus they are muggy after a hot shower.
The lobby of the hotel is quite pleasant in an over-the-top baroque sort of way.
The Spring is located on a leafy street near Saigon's city center. The area has many Japanese restaurants and bars, as well as long-term apartment hotel rental and other establishments catering primarily to expats. There's a famous live performance theater half a block down the street, the same place also shows international movies organized by Alliance Francais, the French cultural promotion orgnization.
