World-class service, brilliant central location and great amenities, made for a very pleasant stay, thank you! Walking distance to many of the best spots in town, stable wifi and an amazing breakfast buffet. Gym and pool are lovely also. Reception staff could be a little more accommodating, otherwise perfect!

The lobby and common spaces are great and new. Everything seemed clean.

Rooms are dated and tired looking. Bathroom sink has dents in them, shower curtain is slightly yellow and the room generally smells damp.

Staff was mostly friendly and nice. One incident though which was off putting was when I asked the front desk for help to contact the spa that I'd be late, I had one person tell me that wasn't their responsibility...

Breakfast buffet had a lovely spread of Vietnamese, western and Japanese food.

Dear Noodlesnoodles,
Thank you for your constructive comments following your recent stay with us. I was glad to hear you appreciated our friendly and helpful colleagues and enjoyed our sumptuous breakfast. I would like to extend my sincere apologies for the inappropriate attitude of our colleague at reception, as this is not the type of service we expect our guests to receive at the Caravelle.. Please be rest assured that the issue has been well noted by our Director of Rooms to address with his team. It is also with great pleasure to share with you that we will be commencing a comprehensive room’s renovation project earlier next year, which will include new room’s interior design and new facilities, something to look forward on your next visit.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

From the Heart of Saigon,

Michael Robinson

It is in the heart of the tourist spot, business district, shopping centers, cultural landmarks and restaurants.

Just beside the Opera House and near the famous Saigon River. Transportation is easy and taxi is always available anytime of the day.

The only General Manager that is truly involved in the marketing, ads, promotion of the staff, hotel and other good places in HCMC.
Who "walk the talk". He has a weekly morning run with his staff and guests. He also has a Pho day to visit where the best place to eat Pho. Though, I do not have the opportunity to join. He is also one of the models of the hotel.

Staffs are kind, attentive, helpful and cheerful which is essential in hotel business. That makes me want to come back and visit HCMC. Checking in and out are efficient too.

Food is excellent and guests have many items to choose from. Tasted the delicious duck sausage which I think can be found only in this hotel. Great pastries. Croissant tasted so good that it is crispy on the outside and chewy in the inside. Pho/noodle soup is delicious too. They have food variations everyday so that you will be excited what is new. They have attentive staffs and Hieu was also cheerful and helpful.

Concierge also took care of our luggage and helped us booked to a tour.

Room is very clean, spacious with quality toiletries and nice view. Great architectural design of the building with fast elevators. They have an excellent gym with a very good equipment comparable to world class gym with superb view of the pool though I didn't have time to work out due to busy schedule.

Internet is fast and easy too in my room and other places of the hotel.

They also host great events for the guests and also have great singers.

OVERALL : GREAT EXPERIENCE! WOULD LOVE TO COMEBACK!

We ended our trip to Vietnam with four nights at the Caravelle. We had an Opera tower room with sweeping views of the City. The rooms are modern and clean. WiFi is free and excellent. Breakfast was included in our rate and it they had many types of cuisine of high quality. Service was top notch and the location was perfect. Longest walk was about 15-20 minutes to Ben Thanh market and taxis are always available for further journeys.

Room Tip: Saigon is a noisy city - better to be on a higher floor

We stayed here while APEC conference was in progress and although the hotel was busy with heightened security in place the service was excellent. Lovely pool and roof top bar. We had view of the Opera House. Caravelle is in central Saigon close to excellent shopping malls and restaurants.
