Although very iconic, it had become extremely dated inside and most services just alright. It is located in the city center and is convenient to most popular sights, but there are many more choices now for lodging that are a much better value. So if you just want to stay in a historic place for nostalgia, and service quality isn't...

This hotel is really a charmer from the outside as well as the inside. There is an outdoor cafe where you can sit and watch the world go by. This hotel reminds me of Raffles Hotel in Singapore with its old charming structure. It also has a fantastic location right beside the Saigon Opera house and minutes to the City...

If you like old hotels this one will please you. Wide corridors, high ceilings, useable stairways. Nice big rooms, modern bathrooms, openable windows. Very attentive staff, great breakfast terrace. And of course the location is convenient to almost everything.

We loved the decor of the hotel and certainly it was beautiful. It is very 'posh' so if you like the finer things you will enjoy . I found that it was in the centre of town where all the more western high end shops are which is not really what my family or I are in to. We ended...

We didn't get the room we had booked which was supposed to have a street view with openable windows and shutters. We love light. We were offered an upgraded room which we didn't want even before we saw it. Ended up in an enormous silly suite with internal courtyard aspect (the breakfast area)....very dark. Luckily we were there for only...

Fantastic location for a few days in Saigon. Easy walk to the post office, Notre Dame, Ben Than market, and the Opera House. Great stroll down Dong Khoi to the river. The junior suite was well appointed and a great deal! Couldn't have picked a better location for a short visit to HCMV.

I love this old hotel. It has such spacious rooms and a fantastic location for shopping on Dong Khoi Street. They have also updated the bathrooms on the third floor. (Perhaps on other floors as well.) I had a room on the third floor which looked out on the Opera House. They serve a delicious buffet breakfast and you can...

This hotel is old and traditional.but clean, and the room we stayed at was quite spacious. What is disadvantageous was that the room was dark and had no window ( the window faces the corridor, so the curtain is always cloased). The location is excellent and close to everythiing. You can see Old Postoffice, Opera house and others that are...
