Located right next to the Opera House and surround by other high-end hotels. Very comfortable rooms, with superb spa and swimming pool. Very good shopping and a nice place to walk at night. The breakfast buffet is exceptional, even by Vietnamese standards, so make sure you include this option in your room rate. After a couple of days the staff...

Located centrally in District 1, I'd recommend the Caravelle to anyone coming to Saigon, whether for business or pleasure. The service is exceptional. The breakfast buffet was the best I had in Viietnam, on par with any hotel in the West. The rooms are comfortable and the open air pool is a great place to rewind at the end of...

We stayed at the Caravelle for two nights as part of a two week tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. We were delighted to find that we had been allocated a Signature room which had the additional benefit of a dedicated check in and access to business lounge facilities. The suite itself in the Heritage wing was fantastic with large lounge/dining...

The Caravelle is located perfectly in central Saigon within walking distance of most of the major attractions of this busy modern city. You can be in the famous Opera House within 90 seconds of leaving the main door! Everything is done very well here and whilst not cheap, it is good value for money. However it does feel more like...

whilst I didn't stay at the Caravelle, we did frequent it as it has one of the best cocktail bars in the city. The prices are reasonable for a city centre quality hotel and the views from the roof terrace were excellent.

The staff were great, the location is excellent, but the building and the rooms are a little dated. The corridors are bare and doing something to upgrade the carpets and furnishings might make a big difference to the overall feel. Reception is nice and the staff are so welcoming and helpful.
