Hotel for standard tourist
location, price, cleaniness
This hotel has more than 120 years history. But the interior is still old. The price includes the breakfast biking, so for standard foreign tourist, this place is acceptable. There are many French and Russian tourists. As for the business use, there are different "de luxe" type hotels and cheaper and clean enough hotels. So for the next stay, I might doubt to choose this.

The only place to stay in Saigon
The history, the atmosphere and the service
I have been staying at the Continental for quite some time, and it remains timeless, one of the truly great hotels in Asia, it stands comfortably alongside the Strand in Rangoon, the Raffles in Singapore and the Oriental in Bangkok. Personally, I hope the Continental never changes any further, in fact, I would prefer it stayed exactly as it is: some people say there are aspects which could be improved on - trivial things like the carpet, for instance - but the essential soul of the hotel, and the atmosphere depend on not turning this grand, historic hotel into some kind of chain-hotel blandness. Me, I don't mind the aged carpet, the grand, wide staircase to the rooms, and the wonderful old-world nature of the rooms themselves, which are more like suites. To watch the 1958 film 'The Quiet American' and see the Continental Palace as it was is something else, I just wish the 'Continental Shelf' was still there, to have been able to sit ourside in those wicker-cane chairs beneath slowly rotating ceiling fans would have suited me just fine, a cold 33 bier and simply watching across Lam Son Square would have been all I could have hoped for. Here's to the next visit in April, I can't wait.

Located in the heart of HCMC
Location, comfy bed, big room
The hotel is average. Early check in charge 26 usd without any notice or informed. I travelled 16 countries and none of then charge for early check in if the room is available. Receiptionist is ignorance. Staff performance needs to be improve. Noisy if there is a party in the garden. Found cockroach in my bathroom

Attitude
location
Carpets need disinfection. Wifi needs to be secure so that people on the street won't disrupt connections to piggyback. Needs retraining of staff most of which are basically arrogant. Take care of your heritage.
