The perfect location while staying in the centre of Saigon.”
A world class hotel in charming Ho Chi Minh City at an affordable rate. We spent three days in Saigon recently after having lived there years ago. The Caravelle is situated on the square opposite the beautiful Opera House. It is convenient to any number of restaurants and shopping. We picked up a deal on Agoda that made the stay even more satisfying due to the discounted rate. The staff are friendly and enormously efficient. The room was light and elegantly furnished. The roof top bar transports you back to a more gentle time. The lobby bar and restaurant provide great afternoon tea and respite from the noise of the street. The food and drinks weren't cheap but not outrageous either. I really like this hotel!
Dear Richard, What great feedback as this is always the type of review we like to receive from our guests. Thank you for taking the time to pass on your positive review on every corner of our truly authentic hospitality following your recent stay with us. We are always delighted to learn from our guests and sincerely grateful for your show of appreciation. Your endorsement is not only a pleasure to receive, but also further motivates the whole team to keep providing outstanding service. Wishing you continued safe travels and look forward to welcoming you back soon. From the Heart of Saigon, The Caravelle Team
Very good value for money”
We decided to spend the weekend in Ho Chi Minh, not knowing exactly where to stay, and we booked our hotel via Agoda based on the photos on the hotel website and the overall rating given by people who have stayed there. We were pleasantly surprised to know that the hotel is right in the center of District 1, and was close to the shopping area, the Opera House, and to the Notre Dame Cathedral, which for us, Catholics, was a plus on a weekend. On entering our room, we knew that we would enjoy our stay at the Caravelle. The room is pretty and had a good view of the city. The breakfast buffet was excellent, and the dinner we had at Reflections, their fine dining restaurant, was superb and the ambience was perfect for our anniversary dinner. It was a memorable stay altogether.
Good Hotel in Ho Chi Minh”
Vietnam is fast-developing, and you can feel & see this in Ho Chi Minh. The city has many restuarants & shopping centers to keep any tourist happy- and while prices are trending up, Ho Chi Mimh is still relatively cheaper than most Asian cities - so take advantage while you still can! If history is your interest, Ho Chi Minh offers many historical sites & museums, both within & outside the city. Caravelle Hotel is a great jumping point to see many city attractions. Located just across the famous Opera house, many good restuarants & shopping districts are within walking distance. The hotel staff is very friendly, and are generally helpful & responsive to your needs. Internet was fast (and free), room service efficient and cleanliness generally acceptable. One not-so-good incident was a tiny red mark I found on my pillow case - looked like lipstick stain maybe? We had not used the bed yet that day, so I knew the stain was not caused by me or my wife. Having said that, as soon as I reported the incident to housekeeping, they were able to promptly change the pillow case and the entire bed sheet just to be safe. A minor irritant too are the sometimes slow elevators (not too bad). Bathrooms are adequate, though the one at a near-by hotel where we also stayed had a nicer, bigger bathroom. Caravelle's is decent & clean enough, so this is not a big deal. Finally, decent food choices and a fun bar on the 6th floor (I forgot the name) complete the hotel's attractions. Food and Services are priced on the high end (5-star rates), so check outside options if you're on a budget. For eg., the tour my wife and I took to the Cu Chi tunnel was 1/3 of the hotel rates. Of course, we ended up riding a decent, air-conditioned economy car vs. the E-Class Mercedes Benz the hotel would have provided. So research, and choose based on your preference. Overall, Caravelle still delivers. It should just make sure it keeps up with the newer, growing competition.
Best Hotel in Saigon”
Location, Service and quality!!! All you can ask for. Right in the center of district 1 Ho Chi Minh City, Caravelle Hotel is conveniently located, Next to Parkson Dept Store District 1, Next to Vincom Center and just opp the HCMC Opera house. Rooms are good quality and world standard, bright and neat. The room decor and facilities are one of the best with nothing much to complaint about. Good attentive service staff and this hotel serves one of the best Buffet in town!!!
World class hotel with excellent facilities”
From checkin to check out we were treated to a fantastic stay by all staff. The location of hotel provides a excellent base to explore the many sites of Saigon and Ho chi Minh city. Signature lounge was a pleasant experience with breakfast and complimentary drinks and canapes with a great view of district 1. The pool provided an oasis in the city to relax after a busy day site seeing. Will return, a bit on the expensive side compared to Australias accommodation level of pricing. Still a beautiful hotel with lovely decor and everything needed for our fantastic stay.

Fantastic Location and Lovely Hotel”
We both enjoyed the Caravelle Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City as It was centrally located in District 1 (The Only area to stay!!) directly opposite the Opera House and we could walk everwhere to Notre Dame Cathederal,The Post Office,The Big Market and Government House and The Museums. The Hotel itself is very well appointed and the staff are wonderful and friendly.Our deluxe room was very comfortable and had all that we wanted during our stay. We will be back
Best customer service hotel in superb location”
Outstanding customer service from Ms. Anh, one of the hotel reps in the Signature Lounge. She was super helpful in every way, arranged excellent show tickets for us for the AO performance in the Opera House which is conveniently just opposite the hotel, provided change for large denomination bills, and was generally willing to go out of her way to ensure our comfort and needs were met. The hotel is excellent in every way; we had a very comfortable and well-appointed room, the breakfast buffet is sumptuous and delicious, we enjoyed using both the swimming pool and gym, and there's even a Moet Chandon 'nook' within the lounge bar on the ground floor. The hotel's location is fantastic - we were able to walk to most places we wanted to visit - and there are excellent restaurants and shops nearby. The Caravelle definitely contributed to the pleasure of our stay in Ho Chi Minh city.

A gem in the centre of Saigon”
The Caravelle Saigon Hotel is an absolute gem. Situated in the heart of Saigon's District 1 it has maintained consistently high standards over many years. It is difficult to fault any of the departments within the hotel. The quality of service is outstanding. It also has a colourful history which may be of particular interest to Australian travellers. During the American war the Australian Embassy was located on the 7th floor of the historic wing of the Hotel. During that period the Saigon Saigon Bar, located on the roof of the historic wing of the Hotel, was also a favourite watering hole for many distinguished Australian journalists and their international counterparts. The Signature Lounge is outstanding. It is currently located in the historic Martini Bar whilst its usual location is being renovated and has not lost any of its ambiance. During my stay Ms Ngo and her team at the Martini Bar were welcoming and very professional.

We are happy to hear our team went the extra mile to bring you our truly authentic hospitality.

Recent Caravelle Saigon Stay”
The hotel and rooms are very clean. The breakfast is very, very good with lots of Western and Eastern options. The quality of the food is exceptional. The location is right in the center of District 1. The A/C works great. The staff speak English and are very nice. I make note of the following issue with Caravelle. 1. The water pressure and hot water availability was exceptional. However, in our room, the shower head was kind of cheap and didn't allow for a nice spray pattern. The shower head really only had a narrow stream. It would be nice if they upgraded their shower heads to a higher-quality that allowed a better spray pattern/more spray pattern options. After all, we are talking about a 5-star hotel here - right. 2. My wife and I attempted to enter the Gambling area on the second floor. It should be noted that this area is restricted to foreign passport holders only. While I was able to freely walk in (as I'm Caucasian and clearly not a local), my wife, who is of Vietnamese descent, but is a US citizen, was restricted from entry. While we advised the manger of the gambling facility (inside the Caravalle) that she was a US citizen, she was still not allowed to enter. I can understand their foreign policy for admittance (as gambling is not legal for local residents), this experience came across as discriminatory. We submitted a copy of our Passports to the Front Desk. The manager of Gambling facility could made an effort to contact the Front Desk to cross-check our background - but - was unwilling to do so. This reflects negatively on the Caravelle Hotel. I complained about this to Caravelle management. We received what we feel was an unsympathetic apology. Our stay here was brief. If I had more time I would have escalated or taken more action on this. 3. The staff were nice, friendly and spoke English well. However, I think they fall a little short of 5-star. 4. All this aside, I would definitely stay at the Caravelle again.
Excellent hotel with many repeaters ”
Standing at the best location in Ho Chi Minh City. Every feature is solid and reasonable as a 4-5 star hotel. Looking at nearby hotel options. Park Hyatt is very nice but too expensive, Sheraton is too big and does not have the nice and open atmosphere Caravelle offers. Continental could have great potential if renovated, at this point, it is left behind the history at this moment. REX is bad. Majestic is the one excellent for tourism and highly recommended, but not for business.
I always stay at Caravelle hotel while i am in Ho Chi Minh city, For who would like to watch a show at Saigon Opera House, Caravelle Hotel is just opposite of it, Door man and Front Desk are friendly, breakfast is great , Everything is fantastic.
Dear Roger, Thank you for your positive feedback on our central location, sumptuous breakfast along with our attentive and friendly colleagues following your recent stay with us. We are happy to be your destination of choice in Saigon. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. From the Heart of Saigon, Michael Robinson General Manager
Great relaxing ”
The Caravelle Hotel was a pleasant stay friendly staff and Spa was terrific. I would recommend the Caravelle Hotel to all travellers . Food particularly breakfast is a highlight. Walking distance to all the major attractions the Caravelle Hotel is a great place to stay. Rooms are clean and the bathrooms are exceptional. I will be staying at the Caravelle Hotel on my next stay to Ho Chi Minh.
Excellent choice in central Ho Chi Minh city”
we really enjoyed our stay. it was our first trip to vietnam - but won't be our last. we found the hotel very central and walked everywhere from the hotel - though taxis would also be very easy to pick up. ho chi minh is an interesting, bustling city - and returning to the hotel felt like an oasis of clam after hectic days out. we looked in some of the other premium hotels in the area, and decided we'd made the best choice picking the caravelle - we'd certainly stay there again.
Great Hotel - great service & great location!”
I stayed at both the Rex and Caravelle whilst in Ho Chi Minh city. Caravelle by far was the best option and I would definitenly reccomend it to all travellers visiting the city. Likewise I would stay again if I were to return. We stayed in a standard room which was really spacious, offered a free fruit plate and large bathroom.
Center of District 1”
We were only in the Caravelle one night, but very nice hotel, friendly English speaking staff, and close to lots of Ho Chi Minh City attractions. Walking distance to the local market, shopping, the Opera House, lots of restaurants, spas, to name a few. We upgraded for a late check out and executive level breakfast which was nice. Internet speed is good. Very nice view from hotel bar overlooking Ho Chi Minh City.
Caravelle Hotel, Ho Chi Minh”
I would definitely recommend Caravelle for either a family vacation, a couples vacation, or a business trip. The hotel is perfectly located in the center of Lam Son Square, which is surrounded by the best shopping, and has a wide variety of quaint specialty stores and delicious restaurants around the hotel to choose from. If I return to Ho Chi Minh, I will definately stay in Caravelle Hotel again.
Heart of Saigon”
I stayed at the Caravelle for the first time this week. The location is outstanding in the heart of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). A short walk brings you to many famous attractions and there are dozens of restaurants, bars and coffee shops within a block or two.
Dear David, Thank you for your positive feedback following your recent stay with us. We feel fortunate to be situated in such a central location, which as you mentioned is close to many of dining venues and Saigon’s key landmarks. I trust you had an enjoyable time at the Caravelle. Wishing you continued safe travels and look forward to welcoming you back soon. From the Heart of Saigon, The Caravelle Team.
