We have just come back from a four night stay at the Caravelle in Ho Chi Minh City (or, Saigon as the locals prefer). This is truly a wonderful hotel, the location is brilliant and the staff are amazing. I have to say the staff all seem to genuinely love their jobs, have pride in their hotel and want you to have an amazing trip.
The only downside (and its very small) is, the Air Con could be better in the corridors/ main areas (although its brilliant in the rooms).
The Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar is a must, the staff are so attentive and friendly- you get used to the humidity after the first drink or three! Also, you get some grate insider tips on where to go and what to see in Saigon.
The pool & bar area is lovely, with cold face towels and complimentary fruit on arrival a nice touch- order the organge juice, its delicious.
We ate and had coffee, watching the world go by in the ground floor cafe, again the staff are amazing and you can watch the crazy Saigon traffic in style! Food is delicious too with everything from a phenomonal burger to delicious asian food on offer.
All in all, a wonderful hotel, right in the centre of Saigon so close to everything. We will be back.
