Located right next to the opera house (oh yes, be mindful of your 8am wake up on sundays by a band playing outside) centrally in District 1.

External activities to consider are the Vespa culture & food tour from 6.30pm - 10.30pm; the Heineken Story on level 60 of bitexco building for $250,000vnd, which gets you 20 minutes in the viewing level 49 and the 3 levels of the Heineken tour; the novel 11 tastes dining in complete darkness at noir then after dinner being shown via iPad the dishes you had; and the grasshopper tour 27km mountain bike ride to chu chi tunnels.
The buffet breakfast at Caravelle is worth considering in your room rate and won’t disappoint.
