A lovely historic place with big beautiful rooms. In spite of its state ownership staff is kind and attentive. Now, the fitness center. If you only want steppers or tread mills and really like a sauna like sweat experience you have no worries. One air con unit is broken, the other is inadequate and won’t turn on unless you summon housekeeping. No free weights. No water. No towels no exercise mats. Bring them from your room. One weight machine that is badly in need of cleaning, lubrication and adjustment. Dirty carpet. I liked the place for its history and beauty, but if you are planning on working out during your stay, beware.
We were here a few years back (earlier than 2019), and we were completely disappointed! This hotel is owned by the government mismanaged by the incapable hotel staff. They still have the mindset of the time before the country's economy was opened up around 1990. The old charm of the French architecture is a cover for the dilapidated interior and an extremely poor service to match. When we asked for new towels (be warned: the towel was not white and soft and should have been thrown away long ago), we were asked to bring the existing towels in the room for exchange! The staff seems to follow the hotel rules to account for the towels they give to the guests for fear of being stolen! The furnishings and especially linens are horrible too -- cheap, moldy and smelly. The next day, we moved to a privately owned hotel next door (Park Hyatt Saigon). It was more expensive, but it was worth it. We considered booking at Hotel Continental a mistake! In Vietnam, hotel and services run by the government are not as good as privately owned. I think part of it is because of corruption, poorly trained staff and don't-care attitude. Government workers belong to a "special privileged class" even at the lowest level and they typically keep the job for life. Stay away! One more thing, typically a 4-star rating for government owned hotel is barely (less than) an international 2-star.…
Historic hotel in the centre of Ho Chi Minh. A class act and old world nostalgia feeling. Rooms a wee bit dated but well appointed. Our AC wasn’t the best but they can and tweaked it and it worked fine. They offered for us to move rooms and left us a key but we were fine for our two nights there. Loved just walking around this property. Very centrally locates. No pool although there is a hot tub in the spa.
Great hotel with proud history. It is hard to imamgine better location in Ho Chi Minh City. We were traveling as a group and the hotel was booked by the travel agency. The travel happened during Covid-19 outbreak. First impression was temperature measurement, hand sanitizer application at the entrance. You can find hand sanitizer at every corner of the hotel. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfotable with great airconditiner. Good breakfast, restaurant and bar
Loved the ambiance and service at this hotel. We had a room on the second floor with a balcony with view to the opera. The room was big and the furniture suited the colonial architecture. We lost wi-fi one night, but that was promptly fixed by the hotel. Bathroom was nice, although could have been modernized a bit. Bathtub/shower that could be a challenge for people with a handicap. The breakfast buffet is very good, and served in fantastic surroundings. Do yourself a favor, and use some extra time for breakfast just to start the day relaxed before you go out into the chaotic and noisy city. Restaurant is also very good for dinner. We ate there two times. Service is very good. Good english skills and very professional. Location could not be better. 10 mins walk in either directions on Dong Khoi street, and you will arrive either at Notre Dame Cathedral og the riverside. 15 mins walk to the war museum. Lots of restaurants outside the doorstep. I recommend a drink on the roof top restaurant at either Majestic or Rex hotel. This hotel is warmly recommended.…
