One of the top 100 luxury hotels in the world
What we say:
Voted one of the top 100 luxury hotels in the world by the Robb Report, the Caravelle Hotel, set on Lam Son Square opposite the Saigon Opera House, is one of the top properties in Saigon. The original Caravelle was home to the offices of AP, CBS, NBC, The New York Times and the Washington Post and it was from the hotel's infamous rooftop bar that war correspondents boasted they could cover the action without leaving their bar stools. Refurbished in 1988, the glitzy 24-floor tower boasts five-star standard rooms and the views are spectacular. Rooms are very spacious, though if you can afford an upgrade to a premium deluxe go for it. Other facilities include a large pool, gym and a range of restaurants. If the Caravelle is out of your budget, be sure to drop by the bar for a drink. Shop around for a competitive internet rate.

This hotel is luxurious but honestly, nothing extraordinary. It's beautiful centrally located, and the staff is very nice and helpful. But for the cost (especially in Vietnam, where everything else is inexpensive), I expected more amenities included. The pool is nice, and a gym is included as well. Standard bathroom items and breakfast isn't included in most of the room rates. Internet access was also not included in the room rate and after paying $15 a day for access, it cut out all the time. All in all, it's a nice hotel but a bit overrated.
