My partner and I have previously stayed at the Hotel Continental Saigon in March 2016. When we booked our second visit to Ho Chi Minh there was no question for us, we would book again. We love this hotel. It's a beautiful grand old hotel; it has seen its share of hard times, and they continue their efforts to restore...

The hotel is an 1880 built french /colonial era hotel, sits on a busy corner opposite the Opera House. We had a suite overlooking the square with a smallish balcony. Room plenty big enough, nice bathroom with plenty of towels and hot water, bed was very comfy slept like a log every night, maybe that was the alcahol? The room...

I have asked to get the best view during check-in but I got the worst view. Unbelievable! Ohhh my God! The room number is 129 with the view of AC's exhausts (some photos are attached). Hope this review will help you to choose or to ask when you stay in this hotel. Good luck!

Lovely hotel, beautifully laid out and maintained. But it does trades on the fact it's the oldest hotel in Saigon. It's proud of its history but could do with modernising in some ways (i.e. there's no swimming pool). We wanted to buy a souvenir from the hotel, a mug, but they wanted $25 which is very expensive. The breakfast leaves...

This hotel is very good, it is in a good location and has very friendly staff. I have wanted to stay here for a while, they have a lot of foreign guests which is good and can speak very good english. The food is excellent, you must try their pastries.

If you like historic hotels with character, this property is an excellent choice. While it does not have all of the bells and whistles of the nearby luxury hotels, the reasonable price and prime location in the heart of the old town are big offsetting factors. Great base for exploring Saigon with many sites within fairly easy access. Good buffet...

We stayed one night at Continental on our way back to Europe and we wanted a classic hotel. It is impressive with its old fashion rooms and still well maintained. Perfectly situated in District 1 with walking distance to the Malin attractions.

What a disappointment with this hotel. I chose this hotel for its history and I knew that it would not be offering something equivalent to the modern hotels in Saigon (Hyatt, Nikko, Sofitel, etc.) However, I was not ready for such a terrible experience. Service was awful from beginning to the end. We were welcomed by a door man who...

This hotel is in a great location, the staff is friendly and accommodating, and it is full of charm. The courtyard for breakfast was lovely and the food was good. The room was large and clean.
