What we say: 4 stars

In 1900, when Ho Chi Minh was living in a small hut on the outskirts of town, a French entrepreneur was building this massive, luxury hotel on the Perfume River. Of course, by the mid-1950s the French were no longer welcome to spend the night here, and Uncle Ho and his friends had the joint all to themselves. Luckily for us, they didn't have it in their hearts to raze this striking vestige of colonial rule to the ground, and the US never saw fit to bomb it to smithereens, so it remains today, a unique monument to history and architecture alike. The interior has been well-maintained, while keeping much of the original intact. A third floor was added a few years back, which fits seamlessly with the existing design. The rooms here are gorgeous, furnished in a classic French style -- and though the open-plan bathrooms are modern and new, they don't intrude on the old world aesthetic. The rooms are arranged around one of the most beautiful interior courtyards we've ever seen, filled nightly with dining and entertainment. There's also a small pool. But who comes here for the pool? Come here to feast on history with a side of irony, in a four-star luxury hotel owned and run by a communist government. Recommended.
