Our Vietnam tour was completed with a five day four night stay at the Grand Hotel, located in district one on Dong Khoi Street.
We were accommodated in the antique luxury wing overlooking the swimming pool. The room had a good layout, with all the normal requirements, clean and fresh, however was a little dark, probably due to the old theme of the wing.
Breakfast catered for many national tastes in a lovely colonial style room, a great way to start the day.
Roof top bar was excellent for viewing the river and surrounding city. A pleasant river breeze and great outdoor setting. Don’t miss the happy hour.
Being in district one meant that we were close to many attractions, bars of all shapes, sizes and tastes, restaurants (in particular the Jaspas directly across the road), coffee houses and shops.
A short walk down Dong Khoi Street will bring you to the Notre Dame Cathedral, Opera House, Reunification Palace and surrounding parks. Take your walk in the opposite direction and you will find you are just five minutes from the river and dinner cruise boats.
Five minute cab drive to International Medical Centre in Dong Khoi Street and a ten minute cab ride to well-known Ben Thanh markets.
Cab drive to international airport approximately 160 000 Dong and almost without exception you will find the cabbies excellent, courteous, polite, chatty (if you wish) and almost insistent that they handle your luggage of all sizes.
The Grand Hotel was good value and we would certainly stay there when next in Ho Chi Min City (have already had friends change their accommodation to move to the Grand).
