We were staying at the Hotel Continental Saigon for 2 nights and then another 1 night after an overnight trip to the Mekong Delta. Hotel Continental Saigon was built in 1880 and the first hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. I immediately fell in love with the hotel, with its beautiful architecture and history. This is an old colonial building...

If you want to experience an old colonial kind of stay, Hotel Continental Saigon is a place worth trying. The rooms are extremely spacious. You can choose to have the Opera View rooms for a nice view overlooking the Opera House. The breakfast is not bad. The location is central and am sure you will love the stay!

The Hotel Continental Saigon is not the most luxurious hotel I have visited, nor is it the most comfortable; but it may be the most characterful. It has a real old world French colonial charm. The Opera View Suite was quite beautiful and very spacious. The location of the hotel is excellent. Breakfast is pretty good, about standard for a...

By far the worst hotel we have stayed in Vietnam and also the most expensive. Hotel has lost it's charms, it seems that it is trying to trade off it's former glory and reputation that it no longer deserve. On top of that, you have staff that are unfriendly and a doorman that couldn't care less about opening the door....

I stayed at the Hotel Continental with my wife and teenage daughter for our first time in April 2017. We chose this hotel as we were looking for something with old world, local charm rather than the standard cookie-cutter hotel that looks the same no matter what city it is placed in. We made a great choice; the Continental exudes...

We wanted a quality hotel where we could meet our son who lives in Vietnam. The Continental was just what we wanted, historic, large luxurious rooms, excellent bathroom and one of the best buffet breakfasts I have had. Would have been a five star review except for one negative. We flew in to Saigon early and arrived at the hotel...

I think the hotel has been able to keep some of the old charm. If you like modern then this isn't for you. We didn't go for an upgrade on the room but we had a standard which overlooked the courtyard. The room was large and tastefully done. The breakfast was good but nothing special although it was very nice...

“Rooms overlooking the opera are further away from traffic noise from Dong Khoi boulevard.”
  • No, there isn't a separate shower. But very clean.
  • Part of the bedroom - fancy sheets removed from bed.
