We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. Our room was amazing and looked out over the opera house. This was billed as a 4 star and definitely lived up to this - the room was more like a suite with a good balcony we could both sit out on with a separate dining area, dressing gowns, slippers, fruit, water and tea/coffee provided. The hotel is situated in a quieter part of District 1 but only around 10 minutes walk from all the hussle and bussle. In fact, we were able to walk to all the attractions from here. Breakfast was served in quite a grand dining room with an outside courtyard in case you value sunshine over style! There was a good choice of food every day for breakfast and this varied each day, with different food geared to different tastes. We found there was plenty that geared to English tastes and there was enough to satisfy a vegan too. The staff were very helpful and very eager to please and we did not find this to be about tipping which is quite refreshing. All in all, I would definitely stay at the Continental again and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone visiting Saigon.

We spend 4 days/3 nights in Saigon at the end of a 2.5 week trip down through Vietnam. This hotel was a charming place to stay in our last few days. The location is fantastic, an easy walk from the markets, shopping centres, with plenty of good local restaurants and street vendors close by. Rooms are spacious and clean. We were in a room located on the first floor above the facilities room, so we did hear a little background noise from AC units, but due to the age of the hotel and their AC system, I woud think there would be noise from this in most areas (certianly the internal courtyard area did have the constant noise from this or other machinery being operated). Staff were excellent, on every contact point with customers. The restaurants were well presented and the range for breakfast was amazing!

Unfortunately we only spent 2 nights here - I would love to have spent more time. The rooms were wonderful and atmospheric, with lots of old dark wood and fabulous details such as letterboxes into the rooms. Of course there are the historic connections of this lovely old hotel. The only real minus for me was the fact there was no real bar, and what there was closed down at 10 - in fact the whole place was pretty closed up by that time.

Room Tip: Opera view room was lovely

Dear Martinmjgh,

2 nights was really short time, but please don't worry, you'll have more chance to come back and our pleasure to welcome you. There are some bar nearby close later but going to bead at 10:00 is good for health isn't it. We also think about open our bar longer and your review is an encourage for us.

Thanks for your review and thanks for giving us a chance to serve you.

The Hotel Continental Saigon is a historical hotel in one of the fastest emerging economic powers in Asia. Ho Chi Minh City has experienced a meteoric economy in the last ten years, and five star hotels can be found throughout the city. Mega-Hotels are evident in District 1, but the hotel that maintains its charm, it's historical identity as the oldest hotel in Vietnam, and a reputation for excellence is the Continental Saigon. I have stayed in the Continental on every trip to Vietnam in the last twenty years, and every time the experience gets better and the staff is second to none. The breakfast buffet is beyond description, and Mr. Quyen and Mr Nha will guarantee your every need is met in the charming open-air dining facility. In the smaller bistro, Le Bourgeois, Ms Truc and the staff will delight you with everything from banana splits to fine dining. Visiting Ho Chi Minh City during the Lunar New Year TET celebrations can be rather chaotic with hundreds of thousand of people in the central city to celebrate. An island of calm in this sea of celebration is the Continental. You can choose larger, more modern hotels, but the charm of the hotel and personal attention you receive is second to none. For a trip back into time and an unforgettable experience go with the Opera Wing Suites.
