Hotel Continental Saigon
Ranked #67 of 468 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I have read many reviews about this hotel. Yes it is an older hotel. However, it is a must visit as there's also the Historical side to it (built in 1865). They try to keep all the original fixtures to keep its charm. Staff are friendly and helpful. Price / value is excellent. I would recommend to treat yourself a few days at this hotel. It is a bit noisy as windows are not well insulated. It is part of the experience to be right in action and next to the Opera House.

Try taking the stairs instead of the elevator. It is a beautiful staircase to take a nice pictures. The garden is charming, so do take time to enjoy your morning coffee!

I have been to Ho Chi Minh several times before and this time we only had 1 night. So I wanted to be close to everything and have a view. The Continental is perfect for that. Right next to the Opera House, a walk to the department stores and a lovely view. The rooms are old style but that is part of the nostalgia. For the price it is excellent value and we were able to get everything done in the 12 hours we were in Ho Chi Minh

Room Tip: Ask to have a room looking out to the Opera House

Fantastic location right next to the Opera and opposite Caravel Hotel with the Bar Saigon Saigon.

The rooms have the old Vietnamese feel and very royal.

No doubt a wonderful stay and service is excellent.

The breakfast choice is good and restaurant is very spacious.

Room Tip: Deluxe Rooms are large and nice

For old-fashioned colonial charm you can't beat this hotel. The fixtures and woodwork are beautiful, and the open hallways are breezy and light. The rooms were a bit dated - we stayed in 309 - but very clean and the beds were comfortable. And we enjoyed the balcony overlooking the opera house. Our friends had to switch rooms because the first one smelled intensely of cigarette smoke. But for any sort of consistent customer service, forget it. We had trouble checking in as they wanted to charge us for our rooms even though we booked and paid online. Then we had to carry our bags to our room. No big deal, but not what I would expect here. Our tub wouldn't drain and we repeatedly asked them to fix it, too no avail. Gross. The front desk often acted like it was their first day on the job and the doorman was usually nowhere to be found. All in all would not recommend this hotel.

stayed here thrice last year during my business trip to Vietnam. The building is beautiful and is centrally located. Rooms are huge and very clean. Two things will take me back again to this hotel, Service & Breakfast. The staff is very helpful and ever smiling.

the hotel is a beautiful building and rooms are very clean and spacious. Breakfast was the best we had in Vietnam and the courtyard is a lovely place to have it. Location is perfect as it is close to all the nice bars and restaurants and historic buildings.


The staff were very helpful and Mr Quyen in particular was very friendly. We spent 3 nights there at the beginning of our trip and chose to go back there for a night on the way back as well. Tariff was very reasonable.

Room Tip: pick one facing the street rather than facing internally.

We arrived on 16 May 2014 around 9am and we had a smooth check in!
Our room is very spacious, beautiful, very clean and everything is in perfect order.
The staff were all very approachable, accommodating and professional. You can also change currency at the hotel reception and their rate is indeed competitive. Their breakfast at the garden is very relaxing. The food is all delectable and the coffee is a must try! Service is just awesome! The staff will make sure you're well attended, i mean it's self service but they will all go out of their way to ask if you need anything. Location wise- it's definitely perfect! Infront is the Opera House, on the other side is the Vincom Centre- lots of shops and restaurants. Behind is another shopping mall -Parksons.. Oh gosh.. i can go on and on and on. Across the hotel beside the Louis Vuitton Shop is the Tourist Saigon office where you can check out or book the tours you want. I like this hotel, I truly enjoyed my stay here.
