Hotel Majestic

Our rating:
4.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

Dating back to 1925, the Majestic sits on what was once Rue Catinat (now Dong Khoi Street) and Quai de Belgique Street (now Ton Duc Thang Street) — an area both historic and very well suited for holiday-makers and shoppers alike.

Despite a series of renovations, and unlike the Rex, the Majestic remains a cohesive creation with a good deal of the original French colonial charm remaining. An L-shaped pool sits at the centre of the hotel in an atrium and ample seating makes this a fine spot to while away a few hours with a good book (Graham Greene perhaps). The rooms, all with high ceilings and parquetry floors, are atmospheric and with the streetside rooms boasting triple glazing, the traffic outside isn’t nearly as bad as you’d expect. A popular choice among Vietnam’s more illustrious visitors, both Graham Greene and Catherine Deneuve feature in the ledger. Rooms across the board are well-sized and have retained enough of their charm to make the Majestic close to a unique choice in Saigon. Price includes in-room WiFi. Other facilities include in-room safe, minibar, satellite TV and IDD telephones. We found the staff to be outstanding. Shop online for a competitive rate. Recommended.
