Reviewed 27 August 2014

I was goings to write amazing experience but "beautiful" is a much more accurate description of the experience of this hotel. The staff are gorgeous, and staying at this hotel is a joy. I could say how close you are to some of the major attractions, but you can look that up on a map, I could tell you how wonderful the food is but you need to try it for yourself, the attention to detail is unsurpassed, the flowers in the hotel moved me to taking photos of each and every vase,not something I normally do, it is truly a wonderful "experience". Everything at this hotel is truly lovely, the staff seem to enjoy what they do and that reflects in the service they provide.i would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 17 th floor but I believe any room would be great

Was only there for one night, but the service and breakfast were both superb. Amazing food selection, and staff were fantastic. Would recommend to all. Great location perfect for exploring the city. Nice gym

Spent a week in Saigon at the Sofitel, the room was clean and well appointed.
The food could not be faulted. Breakfast selection was amazing, and evening meal options just great.
Well located hotel, easy walk to most of the must see sights.
Roof top pool was clean and well organized.
Can't recommend enough.
A must stay for location, comfort and value for money.

Location is very convenient, short walk to the cathedral, zoo, war museum & shopping centers. Hotel staff were all more than helpful & accommodating. Truly a 5 star experience with the best breakfasts I have ever had, including choice of eggs, smoked fish, pho, sushi, all sorts of fruit at their peak of ripeness. Room was more than comfortable, although a little on the small side. Excellent bathroom with robes & just about anything you might need. Quite expensive, but you more than get what you pay for. I will certainly return look forward to staying there.

Before choosing this hotel when I was planning some days in Saigon, I was impressed by the fact that the management was looking so attentive in replying to the reviews.
This is a point to which I always pay attention because it is a clear sign of caring towards the clients.
The good impression has been confirmed.
First of all, the position, just in front of the American Consulate, is perfect because all the main attractions are in a short walking range.
The entrance of the hotel is stunning, with a delicious perfume of jasmines.
When I arrived, at around 20.00 in the evening, I noticed one of the manager that was discretly in the hall taking a look to everything around.
I have years of experiences in hotels around the whole world and this is a thing that deserves a bonus point.
Our room was a superior, that is to say a standard one with a better name, but it was wide, with a beautiful bathroom and all the amenities that you can need, included toothbrushes with Colgate toothpaste and Lanvin products.
The furniture is nicely modern with touches of violet, black, grey and white.
Tv has a wide choice of international channels and there is also the DVD reader.
Complimentary bottles of water are added every day.
Breakfast is sumptuos. You can find really everything, included every kind of fresh juices. Waiters are incredibly attentive, asking you every minute if you need something and changing cutlery at every use.
Some other confirmation of excellence: we had a problem with the bathtub and the reception sent the plumber in charge in literally five minutes.
The day of the check out we asked for a late one and they immediately accorded us an extension at 14.00. As it was not fitting with our needings, they gave us the use of the Gym facilities before leaving at 15.30.
Now some thumb down.
As written also in other reviews, wifi is not the best one. It is often slow and, above all, you need to write the password every couple of minutes of not browsing. Moreover you are allowed to connect only two devices at a time per room.
At the evening turndown, the little macarons (always appreciated in other Sofitel hotels) have been brought only the first evening (why?). On the other side, few minutes after the arrival, the housekeeping knocked at our door with a nice teddy bear gift for my kid of 6 (a deep touch of class).
There aren't umbrellas in the room (and in Saigon is often raining) and you need to ask for those at the reception desk everytime.
Last, the light system in the room is well working and of clear use (and everyone that use to stay in hotels like this one knows that sometimes they are really a riddle) but is inexplicable and bothersome that the control panel is only in one side of the bed so you have to surf in the bed to the other side to manage it if you stay at the opposite edge.
In brief, it is almost the perfection, with very few steps to check to cut away the "almost".

Thanks for having chosen Sofitel for your stay in Saigon and for sharing your comments on Trip Advisor.

We are pleased that, as a seasonned traveller, you and your family enjoyed your stay with us and our care towards our guests. We have also taken good notes of your few 'thumb down' comments.

We offer internet speed of 1 MB per second, which is one of the highest available in hotels in town and indeed it allows 2 devices per room. We will investigate the issue of unstable logging as this should not happen, unless you had more than two devices in use at the same time.

In order to avoid monotony, we provide macarons on the first turndown service and change the amenity on the following nights.

We are working on the other points you mentioned to improve our guests' experience.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you and your family back on your next trip to Vietnam.

With our best regards,

Bertrand Courtois
General Manager

Sofitel Saigon Plaza is located on a tree-lined Boulevard, within walking distance to shopping malls, different kinds of restaurants and cafés. Their service is on an expert level, rooms are large and comfortable. We experienced a friendly service by the staff at all levels and services.

We stayed here on a recent family holiday of Vietnam. The hotel is in a great location, with just a short walk to many of the sights of Ho Chi Minh City. The staff of the hotel were lovely and friendly and very helpful. The room was extremely clean, although on the slightly smaller side in terms of size compared to other rooms we have had in Vietnam. We didn't dine in any of the restaurants but did sample the scrumptious delights of the 'Pink' Afternoon Tea, definitely worth a peek though if you'd rather not give your body a sugar overload! All in all, a wonderful stay. Thank You Sofitel.
