Quite simply Saigon’s best hotel
Quite simply, the Park Hyatt is one of Saigon's best hotels, the creme de la creme.
Opened in 2005, everything is tip top, from the palatial entrance with chandeliers dripping in crystals to the buttoned-up service to the classic French colonial architecture. The hotel is also only nine-storeys, a relatively low-rise L-shape flanking the outdoor swimming pool.
Rooms are unapologetically classic and French feminine: scrolled furniture, French doors and windows, decorative carpeting, soft shades punctuated by cherry wood bed frame and side tables. All room categories have a white marble bathroom with both a rain shower and bath, as well as all the expected services and amenities of a luxury hotel: minibar, desk, capsule coffee maker, tea, fresh fruit, toiletries and safety box.
Deluxe rooms on the 3rd floor enjoy a walk out terrace to the swimming pool. The pool is a true city oasis surrounded by leafy tropical landscaping.
The location is outstanding. Park Hyatt Saigon is in the heart of downtown Ho Chi Minh City, a block from Dong Khoi St, Saigon Opera House, several high end shops, department stores and restaurants, and walking distance to Nguyen Hue walking street. The hotel has a spa, gym, several food and beverage outlets including a lobby cafe/tea room/bar with piano and jazz and a business centre.
It’s a professional hospitality experience of international standard. If this price tag is within your realm, don’t think twice about staying here. Do check online hotel sites for discounted rates off those listed here.
