State owned hotel needs to update furniture and pl
Service, location, breakfast
Central location of Continental is great and starting off with diverse and hearty breakfast buffet was excellent. The large room with twin beds and separate sitting area was sparse and cold. Tiny drops of water for shower made for spit bath. Elegant exterior promises what room, that I had, did not deliver.

History and modernity combined
Beautiful heritage hotel, central location, excellent staff
Brilliant French colonial hotel fully restored, right in the centre of Saigon. Our room was enormous and not expensive. Smart and attentive staff. Beautiful dining areas. Main restaurant (French) a little pricey, especially for Vietnam. But overall a must stay for anyone.

Beautiful facade and lobby but room needs work
beautiful building and entrance lobby, good for business meetings
The facade is of 4 star standard but the rooms will need some maintenance. Toilet puts down the entire room. Room size is very good in generous size. Staff goes by the book so everything is fair.

Come for the charm, not the WiFi
Location, huge rooms, historic charm
This review is for two stays at the Continental a week apart. First, the good. The hotel has historic charm located across from the Opera House. Convenient to most things in central District 1 and taxis are readily available. The rooms are HUGE (throwback to the old colonial days) w/high ceilings so no feeling cramped. Rooms are clean & reasonably furnished with comfortable beds. The breakfast buffet is good, with a good variety of items. Both Asian and Western dishes are available. Some rooms face the Opera House and have balconies. Other rooms have balconies overlooking an interior courtyard. Now the not so good. Although you can get the room A/C working to cool of your room, the hallways are open & non air-conditioned. The elevators can be extremely stuffy - I don't think there was any ventilation in them. As this is a "historic" hotel, one thing missing from the rooms is an abundance of electric outlets. They do provide a power strip in the closet, but modern travelers will miss having outlets everywhere. Finally, the hotel internet was spotty but acceptable on our first stay and almost non-existent on our second. The hotel uses a number of different WiFi routers with different access names - no central access point. Although we could see four different routers on our second stay, we got little or no actual internet access through them. We did get connected by taking the laptop to the lobby, but that was inconvenient. In addition, on our second stay, we had an interior balcony that overlooked the "Continental Patio". There was a corporate party there one night and it was lucky that we didn't need to sleep early. Music blared - there was little silencing in the room. If you are there when there is no event, it would be fine, but a corporate event or a wedding might be another story. So...a mixed bag. Good location, huge rooms, comfortable furnishings. Lousy wifi, few outlets and potentially distracting events.

French elegance with Vietnamese touch
Architecture, ambience, rooms.
Felt very pampered. Staff couldn't do enough for us. Beautifully restored hotel from a more elegant epoch. And affordable. Highly recommended.
