This was my first visit to the Grand – and I’ll be back.
The Grand is a great break from the cookie cutter chains I normally tend to patronise. The Grand has been an institution in Saigon since the thirties – but in the nineties it got a major makeover and the addition of a new ‘luxury’ wing. They have obviously kept investing in the décor – the feel of the hotel is classy, fresh, bright and airy throughout.
What a successful offering – a great blend of the traditional feel of a one-off hotel with the facilities of a 4-5 star hotel.
The rooms are spacious and well put together – with an excellent air conditioning system and all the mod cons.
The restaurants and bars are excellent (really great breakfast buffet!), and there’s lots of comfortable lounging space in and around the reception area. I was especially taken with the rooftop restaurant and bar with its 270 degree view of the city and the bay.
The staff couldn’t have been more friendly or more helpful.
Finally, the location couldn’t be better – located on Dong Khoi, right in the centre of District 1, you can walk out the door anytime of the day or night and be a 2 minute walk from the buzz of the city.
All in all I couldn’t recommend it more highly – for business or for a holiday break in Ho Chi Minh City.
