"This hotel has two parts....old and new. We stayed in the old and it was delightful. By booking through Agoda, our rate was excellent for the duration we stayed. Located in district 1, a stones throw from the Saigon river and in the business centre of Ho Chi Minh city, when you walk out the hotel door the vibrant activity of the Vietnamese hits you full on. The rooms are well appointed with a very firm mattress on the bed and plenty of space in the room. The cleaning service is up to scratch as one would expect. The staff were all delightful and very helpful attending to all our enquirers and needs. A special mention to 'Trainee 20' in the restaurant....his attention and friendliness was excellent! Facilities....swimming pool, gym and casino style club are available. The rooftop bar is a must attend and the various restaurants are excellent. "

"The hotel and rooms are very clean. The breakfast is very, very good with lots of Western and Eastern options. The quality of the food is exceptional. The location is right in the center of District 1. The A/C works great. The staff speak English and are very nice. I make note of the following issue with Caravelle. 1. The water pressure and hot water availability was exceptional. However, in our room, the shower head was kind of cheap and didn't allow for a nice spray pattern. The shower head really only had a narrow stream. It would be nice if they upgraded their shower heads to a higher-quality that allowed a better spray pattern/more spray pattern options. After all, we are talking about a 5-star hotel here - right. 2. My wife and I attempted to enter the Gambling area on the second floor. It should be noted that this area is restricted to foreign passport holders only. While I was able to freely walk in (as I'm Caucasian and clearly not a local), my wife, who is of Vietnamese descent, but is a US citizen, was restricted from entry. While we advised the manger of the gambling facility (inside the Caravalle) that she was a US citizen, she was still not allowed to enter. I can understand their foreign policy for admittance (as gambling is not legal for local residents), this experience came across as discriminatory. We submitted a copy of our Passports to the Front Desk. The manager of Gambling facility could made an effort to contact the Front Desk to cross-check our background - but - was unwilling to do so. This reflects negatively on the Caravelle Hotel. I complained about this to Caravelle management. We received what we feel was an unsympathetic apology. Our stay here was brief. If I had more time I would have escalated or taken more action on this. 3. The staff were nice, friendly and spoke English well. However, I think they fall a little short of 5-star. 4. All this aside, I would definitely stay at the Caravelle again. "

"The Rex Hotel has a lot of old Indochina charm and I'm glad we tried it . We booked the Rex Suite, since we like a spacious room. In the photo it showed a king bed only, which is what we wanted. What we got was a king bed plus another bed alongside. That left little space on one side of the bed and only one night table for one person. There is a partition in the room so that there is a small sitting area when you walk in the door with some,pretty stiff looking furniture. The bathroom is older decor, a little tired, and the "blackout" curtains had gaps at the sides and allowed light throughout, more like greyout curtains. The wood floors look good but creak when you walk on them. The breakfast is definitely the best we've had in our many stays in Saigon and the pool and health club were lovely. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Ran out of time to try the spa, which had a good menu and not bad prices for a five star hotel. The location is good, especially if you like high end shopping. Overall it was pleasant; we will continue to stay at a more secluded hotel in District 1 when we return"

"We stayed for a long weekend in November. The weather was mixed so it was nice to stay in a hotel in district 1, and that had great facilities. The breakfast I would highly recommend - a huge variety of different foods, very fresh and well presented (and served on the rooftop with a great view!) Out room was very comfortable, a huge bed, great shower and lots of nice thoughtful additions. We didn't have a view out of the windows but it didn't really make much difference to us as there are plenty of places within the hotel to get great views. The spa is good too, we had a fantastic massage. The pool is very small but in a lovely courtyard and is very relaxing to sit and relax by and have a dip to cool off. Very glad we chose the Majestic as it has a bit of quirky old world charm. Its been refurbished so all mod cons but with a colonial feel. I would definitely recommend the hotel for a stay in Ho Chi Minh City. But get in there quick...they are planning to redevelop the whole exterior to a modern facade so it will sadly no longer look like it did in 1925."

"the hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. one of the best hotels i've ever stayed in. rooms are fantastic and very well fitted out. all the little things are provided, hand towels, razer + shaving cream, cotton buds, etc.... doesnt sound like much but you'd be surprised how many 5 star hotels i've been to that are missing little things here and there. rooms are big and spacious. very clean and excellent value. our package also included access to the executive club on level 23 which provided snacks and unlimited drinks (alcohol included!) breakfast provided was a very big selection and was different every day. seemed to cater for the majority of people. very happy with meals. service is outstanding from moment we stepped out of taxi till the day we left. staff are very courteous and customer service is top notch. unfortunately for me i had my bag snatched on the streets but the hotel did everything they could to assist so i'm truly grateful for all their help! all in all i would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone in ho chi minh looking for a luxurious place to stay. we could have just just stayed at hotel and not stepped out. they provided everything! oh, and spa services are open till late and definitely one of the most relaxing massages i've ever had. one minor set back is although the hotel is in district 1 it is a couple of minutes away from all the main malls, cho ben thanh etc. for us it wasn't a big deal as they have taxis out front all the time. we never had to wait for a taxi and it only cost 50000dong (less than $2.50aud!) to get to the main part of district 1. ironically though after all those trips out by taxi my partner ended up buying the majority of her shoopping items from the mall next door. oh, and forgot to mention, if you haven't picked it up already theres a massive mall next door to the hotel which should provide all your basic essentials plus it has a few levels of excellent shopping + currency exchange + atm!

"Super trendy hotel in District 1. Rooms are so well designed and they have everything you could possibly want/need. Free minibar (not spirits/wine) is really nice touch. Loved the jacuzzi on the balcony. Great facilities, rooftop pool (get a bed early on a sunny day), good gym. Didn't eat there but food looked good, free afternoon tea, also a nice touch. Service super friendly and welcoming, speak extremely good English, always willing to help. Great location for exploring District 1. Would highly recommend this hotel. "

"I would consider this hotel as our number one choice when we are in Ho Chi Minh City. It is the best for the money considering its location and the size of the room. You cannot find another hotel in district 1 that will offer the room that large. The breakfast buffet is nice with variety of disks and are freshly cooked and prepared daily. My wife loves their Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) for breakfast. We also enjoy very much the privilege of the VIP lounge that offers happy hours every day from 5 to 7PM. With all of that, I also want to mention the staff that we are very happy with their service that include: Tran Thi Minh Ha, Nguyen Thi Hong Yen, Huynh Kim Vui, Nguyen Phuong Tram, Lam My Dung, Nguyen Ngoc My, Lam Thi Cam Van, Nguyen Phuoc Tung, Tran Du Hien, Vu Ngoc Huy and Le Duc tai. These guys are great. "

"Choosing Pullman Saigon was the best decision that I made on this trip. The room was immaculately clean and spacious. Being only a 6 months old hotel, the level of the staff's service was commendable. The swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi were great for relaxation after sightseeing tours and hearty meals. My family enjoyed our stay at the hotel thoroughly. The staff was very prompt and helpful when we needed it as my little boy was sick. We also like the location of the hotel as it is at the fringe of District 1 and not too far from the China town district. We would not hesitate to return to the hotel on our next visit to HCMC."

"I loved the Lotte Legend. I had the unfortunate experience of becoming ill alone in Saigon. The staff helped me find medical care in the middle of the night and the next morning sent up some ginger tea. That alone would get them five stars, but it's also a beautiful hotel where everything is effortless for you as a guest. The spa service is wonderful and elegant. I don't usually use the spa at a hotel because I like to go out, but the two hour evening massage my first night there was what I needed for my jet lag. My only three star item---I thought because the hotel was in district 1 it would be more convenient to walk to dining and tourist sights but that wasn't really the case as far as I could see, but it turned out okay because some days I got tours that picked me up.
