We lived in this hotel during 13-16 May, it's noisy due to reconstruction and redecoration.

We've been taking many countermeasures to limit noise affecting the room to ensure our guests have a pleasant stay.

Great experience ”
Great hotel in a great location right in the middle of all the action in District 1. Lovely breakfast and cocktails at the bar. Latin music and dancing on the 9th floor rooftop bar. Large rooms with pleasant atmosphere. Amazing cosy beds that you just want to sleep in all day. Great location for shopping, Takashimaya, Vincom etc all nearby walking distance. Hundreds of restaurants and cafes all around you. Perfect spot for couples or solo travellers like me. Will stay again for sure.

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.

Just stayed at Caravelle and got an excellent deal. Hotel is being renovated and construction works are right nearby but the noise wasn't disturbing. Breakfast was included and so was Happy Hour with canapes. Right next to opera House I went to 3 concerts over the weekend - no extra cost for transport to attend. Exceptional value for money in such a great location.

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.
Great location and great facilities ”
I had a room with access to the executive lounge. Well worth it. Good food , lovely staff, evening drinks. Rooftop bar was great. Highly recommend the Tamarind Margaritas! Big pool, lots of beds, not crowded at all, good poolside service. Took a private city tour organised by the hotel which was excellent.
Dear Judith, Thank you for your positive feedback on every corner of our truly authentic hospitality following your recent stay with us. We agree our Signature Experience is well worth the value and most guests enjoy our culinary offerings and attentive service in Signature Lounge. I trust you had an enjoyable time at our iconic Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar – One of the best entertainment venues in town, not to mention our swimming pool – a little oasis hidden from the hustle and bustle of Saigon. Wishing you continued safe travels and look forward to welcoming you back soon. From the Heart of Saigon, The Caravelle Team
Very comfortable hotel with convenient location”
This is a great hotel for travelers who want to be able to enjoy a great facility with historic significance. The Internet is lightning quick, and you don't even need to enter a password. This makes the hotel especially great for business travelers. The public meeting areas and lobbies are up to date, and the outdoor pool is a great place to relax. My only cautionary note is that the bathroom is in need of an upgrade. Most hotels of this stature no longer have bathtubs that you have to step up into to take a shower. There aren't even handles on the walls. In this sense our room seemed totally modern and first rate, but by 1990s, not 2018, standards.
Dear Chris, Thank you for your positive feedback on our internet speed and meeting spaces following your recent stay with us. It is with great pleasure to share with you that we will be commencing a comprehensive room’s refurbishment project shortly, which will include a new room’s interior design and new facilities, something to look forward on your next visit. 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, Michael Robinson General Manager
Overpriced underdelivered ”
Old and overly priced with little to offer to guest.
Dear Chew, Thank you for your feedback. Regarding the price, we are moderately priced compared to our competitors at other five star hotels in Saigon. It is with great pleasure to share with you that part of our newly refurbished rooms which include new interior design and new facilities were released by the end of April, something to look forward on your next visit. Wishing you continued safe travels and look forward to welcoming you back soon. From the Heart of Saigon, The Caravelle Team.
Very charming and beautiful hotel at the heart of Sai gon”
We always had a great experience staying at Caravelle Saigon. Last time, an upgrade to a suite room is really amazing and so nice. The hotel is located at the heart of Saigon. Beautiful designed, charming and luxurious ambience make the hotel the most valued money place to stay in Saigon. Definitely recommend.
Dear Rachel, What great feedback as this is always the type of review we love to receive from our valued guests. We are happy to hear you appreciated our positioning and were pleased with our small touches. Thank you for recommending us to other travellers as well.

We stayed here for there days and I have to say everything was great. We had a club room and the facilities were lovely. The staff are so friendly and the food was great. Cant fault anything! Well done Caravelle!
Dear GRAHAM, Thank you for your kind comments on our comfortable room, along with our culinary offerings and attentive service following your recent stay with us. I trust you had a pleasant time at the Caravelle. Wishing you continued safe travels and look forward to welcoming you back soon. From the Heart of Saigon, Michael Robinson General Manager
Good Location and Quiet”
Decent facilities, generally good staff, though the law of having no guests after 11pm was rigidly enforced, ridiculous, but local laws. Good room, very comfortable, though it could have done with a bigger TV and a kettle that switched itself off, though I did ask! Good view, quiet, decent room service, nice pool and a really good location for bars and restaurants. I keep coming back, so the proof is in the pudding!
Dear Barry, Thank you for your kind comments on our central location, along with our comfortable room and attentive service following your recent stay with us. We are step by step switching to bigger TVs and will be accomplished for our total 335 rooms in the coming renovation. Seeking your understanding that we have to abide by local regulations on non-registered visitors, also because your safety is a matter of our concern, we recommend our guests to welcome friends in room from 8:00 to 22:00. Out of this period, we arrange meeting space with sofa in the lobby for your convenience. Wishing you continued safe travels and look forward to welcoming you back soon. From the Heart of Saigon, Michael Robinson General Manager
01. excellent location 02. all staffs are good. except for sales. if you are traveler then do not contact salespeople in this hotel. just make a deal from Agoda. the sales team in this hotel have no service mind. just money! money! money! 4. some mention about breakfast. not worth it. if you tried Majestic/ Grand or Lottel, then you would not say this hotel breakfast is good. to me, not worth it. 5. coffee for 10usd? i will pay this if staffs are getting the same salary as another country. staff salary for $250.00usd but coffee and other things are same as USA does not make sense to me. if you are going to charge the same price as USA then staffs in the hotel should also get the same salary as the USA. that's all. after all. good hotel to stay!
Dear charlie, Thank you for your positive feedback on our central location and attentive service following your recent stay with us. Regarding our sumptuous breakfast, we will try to cater for many nationalities as we can and we also understand that the tastes may vary from guests to guests. If there is a particular dish you would like to see, our Chef will be happy to tailor the menu on your next visit. Regarding the price, we consistently do a price comparison among the other 5 star competitors and continue to be placed competitively. Wishing you continued safe travels and look forward to welcoming you back soon. From the Heart of Saigon, Morgan Ulaganathan Director of Rooms
Best Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City”
Great value for money. There are cheaper options but this is World Class - a great pool, great service, a fantastic bar with historical importance and perfect location. This hotel in Singapore or Hong Kong would be 5 times the price. Take advantage and spoil yourself !
Dear matt, Thank you for your excellent feedback on our central location along with attentive service following your recent stay with us. We are delighted to receive such awesome comments, as they definitely motivate the whole team to keep providing outstanding service. We do look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back soon. From the Heart of Saigon, Michael Robinson General Manager
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 location, great service, older rooms”
Very good option in HCMC downtown Dist 1. Great service, great location but the rooms are a little outdated. That yellow wood look, however they are very clean and good size. Very clean. Housekeeping did a great job and the food was good in the hotel. Breakfast was nice and the service at the Breakfast buffet was awesome.
Dear Jake, Thank you for your positive feedback on our central location, along with our sumptuous breakfast and attentive service following your recent stay with us. I trust you had an enjoyable time at the Caravelle. It is with great pleasure to share with you that we will be commencing a comprehensive room’s refurbishment project later this year, which will add a new flair into our iconic hotel, something to look forward on your next visit. Wishing you continued safe travels and look forward to welcoming you back soon. From the Heart of Saigon, Michael Robinson General Manager
My go-to hotel in HCMC”
I travel a lot to HCMC for work and this is now my go-to business hotel. It is conveniently located on Dong Khoi and walking distance to many sites and restaurants. The rooms are clean, spacious and equipped with everything one needs for a short stay. The staff were always wonderful and warm, and the pool was a nice respite from the midday heat. The only criticism is I wish the breakfast were more reasonably-priced.
Great hotel in a central location”
This is my second time staying at Caravelle and will make this my go-to hotel whenever I come to HCMC. Centrally located on Dong Khoi, it is walking distance to many tourist sites, including Ben Thanh market (10-15 mins) and the war remnants museum (~25 mins) and restaurants. The room is spacious and the bed is comfortable. During the day when the sun was beating down, we enjoyed hanging out by the pool, which is large. Only complaint is the room rate (which is high by Vietnam standards) did not include breakfast.
Just ok for a 5 Star ”
There is good an bad about this place in my opinion. First I will say the good things. The bed is extremely comfortable. The room is clean. Nice view from the window. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is decent next to the opera house. OK, now here is the bad. The toilet seat did not stay up on it's own (please note I would not complain if this was 3 star place, but for 5 stars I expect better). The temperature would not go below 23c, and I like it to be cold at night. The breakfast was $25 USD per person, so it cost $50 per day. That is way to high for this area and there are no restaurants close to the hotel that I could find for breakfast. In summary, hotel was ok, bed was nice, but there are 4 star places in the area that are just as nice or nicer for 1/2 the price with breakfast included.
Great location, Friendly Staff, 5 Star Service”
We are well impressed with the quality of the service provided by the staff. All of them speak fluent English, courteous and helpful. Rooms are big and clean with an unbeatable location. Will definitely visit again!
My new favourite hotel, so well looked after I felt like my mother was there, the staff were warm, friendly and professional and a special mention for one of the pool staff "Thu" a lovely girl that not only made sure I get my beer quick and cold but made sure I had something to eat as well, it was that little bit of extra care
A beautiful hotel with history.”
The Caravelle is a great hotel with amazing facilities and a great history to the building but the rooms in the new wing are a bit dated which stings a bit when you look at the price for a room. That being said, the pool is great for relaxing and the spa is a wonderful retreat. Also, the all you can eat buffet including sushi, seafood and all you can drink alcohol is definitely worth one night (and possibly a morning in bed with headache).
Wonderful stay for five nights”
It is a wonderful hotel in a wonderful location. We were impressed by the professionalism of the reception area staff, security staff and the staff in the gym. Each time I went to the gym the staff member on duty was very helpful in showing me how to use the equipment correctly. They made my visits to the gym very positive as I felt I was using the equipment properly and adjusted to my height and ability to handle weights for each machine. They were very encouraging and warm. **Note: Please add in a category for does not apply as we did not have any meals at the Caravelle so are being forced to rate food services we did not have.
An oasis ”
Great stay at the Caravelle, the rooftop bar is a good way to start the evening with its relaxing atmosphere and the fact that they sell cider! Handy for getting to the post office, cathedral and other attractions that you might want to visit.
Exceptional hotel in the perfect location, with great attention to satisfy clients. Would recommend this hotel to everyone, although slightly higher cost than others, well worth the money. Nice pool and the staff were excellent. Rooms clean and bed was very comfortable. Thank you to the extremely hospitable staff!
classic beauty; excellent service; ambient locatio”
this is probably the top hotel in HCMC. It has the best service with girls wearing ao dai opening doors everywhere. The maids service the rooms twice a day, not just once. A word to the wise. Much better is to pay the extra which includes a high floor, a king bed, breakfast and nibbles/drinks on level 9 from 5.30 to 7.30. You can do it on check in if you forget to do it on Agoda.
Home Away from home in HCMC”
a great stay as usual at the hotel. staff are always fantastic especially Tommy in concierge - they always there to help. Room is quite classic old style 5 star but well maintained and good size. Poolside Great as well as roof top bar
Excellent hotel, staff and facilities”
I've been to HCM many times but never stayed at Caravelle before, this turned out to be a great success. From checking in to checking out the staff was very friendly and helpful, they have a major renovation project but it seems they did all they could to make the stay comfortable. I can't think how stressful this renovation must be for the hotel staff, but their professionalism and friendliness despite this is just magnificent. Will definitely stay here again, looking forward to the smiles in Saigon Saigon and the will to fix problems (me not bringing trousers and having lounge access which they solved perfectly). Thanks for a great stay!
Saigon Pearl in the centre of town”
Only spent one night but felt longer. Room was great space..like a suite and two toilets actually a bonus. Staff were fantastic and after checking we got super late check out for no extra cost...really appreciated. The location is right in the heart of Ho Chi Minh city (HCMC) so central to shops and food and entertainment..all within easy walking. Club lounge was a nice place...good set up and very good food and drinks on offer for the happy hour or free club lounge canape and drinks time. To conclude our evening we headed up to the rooftop bar for a couple of quiet drinks... They had a Cuban band and girl singers doing their thing...it was fun and a good space to wind down from the day. I would certainly return to this place if going to HCMC again...
Great hotel in great location”
Excellent stay in Signature Club Room on 22nd floor. The lobby area is under renovation - this did not impact our stay in any negative way ; we benefitted as the hotel was possibly less busy than normal. Lovely location opposite Opera House. Short walk to the river and in the centre of shopping district.
Lovely stay in a historic hotel”
My husband & I had a lovely stay at the Caravelle. Unfortunately, the hotel is under renovation and on our first morning room service was mistakenly delivered to our room. Aside from that, great location, good room service selection and fast & free internet.
Centrally Located for Business and Brief Sight See”
Room was clean and staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel centrally located around major sight seeing locations that are generally within walking distance 5-15 mins. Else a short cab ride will generally gets you around. Good eateries around the hotel as well. Room rates are on the high side though.
This is my 3rd time staying in this hotel. Very easily accessible. 10mins walk to the Benh Tanh martket. Nearby shopping malls and eateries. Very clean environment. Will stay at the same hotel for my future visits.
Solid hotel in a very good location”
My stay at the Caravalle was fine. The hotel is in the heart of Q1 and rooms are fine (if unspectacular), staff are friendly and there is a good gym. Only issue is the pool which is stuck between two high rise buildings so there is only a little sunshine available!
This is a superb hotel. It is well located adjacent to Oera House. It has excellent service with girls in traditional dress opening doors. Fast internet. Room cleaned twice daily. Fresh fruit in room daily. flowers changed in room daily.
Hotel staffs are attentive and speak good English. Room is large, well furnished and clean. The good thing is the location, centrally located. Value for money. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Short taxi rides to Ben Thanh market. There are a lot of restaurant nearby the hotel. Breakfast was nice, a good variety of food was offered at breakfast. Overall, it was a pleasant stay. I'll definitely stay at the hotel again for my next trip to Saigon.
Awesome Hotel & Will surely return”
I truly enjoy my stay in this hotel. It's closed to many good restaurants. We are very thankful to Mr. Trung, front desk, who gave us many informations about the town & what he recommended us are very insightful.
As always another great stay at the Caravelle Hotel. This is a hotel that I would always recommend to anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh city. It is perfectly located. Reasonably close to the airport. Great access to shopping, restaurants and night life in Ho Chi Minh city. Rooma are a great size and if you are fortunate to be on the Club Floor, the executive lounge is great.
Pricey but worth it”
Awesome stay. It sure was on the very high end price wise but it was worth it. Great staff, fabulous fluffy beds, enormous room size. Moreover the location is just perfectly central! And to top it off, the gym is great. Recommend this hotel.
Awesome hotel in the middle of the city”
Awesome stay. It sure was on the very high end price wise but it was worth it. Great staff, fabulous fluffy beds, enormous room size. Moreover the location is just perfectly central! And to top it off, the gym is great. Recommend this hotel.
Need to stay here at least once”
Best historic-becoming hotel in HCMC. Have stayed here several times over the last 10 years and still like to come back. From classic Siagon-Saigan bar on rooftop, all the way down to the ground floor luxury this hotel has class. Nice to see renovations are in progress, but for Asia maintenance standards, this place has been kept up exceptionally well. Good job management and staff!
staff in signature lounge are impolite”
I was disappointed with the staff in signature lounge 9th floor. We took 1 hour to check in because theres misunderstanding with the rooms. We are total of 17 persons and 6 were children. I get 3 standard rooms and a 2-bedroom suite room. I told her just put extra beds for the rooms and i'm willing to pay to extra charges. They are talking in their language that I could not undrestand but the gesture you will know that like they dont trust you. In the signature lounge, they dont have bottled water. If you ask for one they will told you to sit down and they will give you a glass of water. I paid for access in the lounge including complimentary beverages and drinks. You can't go inside the lounge if you are wearing shorts but most of us brought shorts (no pants). Better they indicate the rules before I bought lounge access. Cause its a waste of money, we can't avail the lounge access just because we are wearing shorts. places like saigon for vacation usually foreigner wears shorts because its comfortable and travels light...
Centrally located ”
Was greeted very warmly as return guest after seven years with a very efficient check IN and upgrade at my request, the business floor is well worth the upgrade. Disappointed in the staff performance at the small coffee lounge, either short staffed and NO interest in serving guests. Enjoyed the Saigon Saigon bar. The Signature lounge is well worth the additional cost of an upgrade, attentive staff and very comfortable. I joined the membership program as shall certainly return thanks to the amazing check IN staff who were also very helpful on check OUT
a few historic tour spot, not bad”
everthing is good with little higher price but the restuarant is small and full easily. room is medium size and little old, but comfortable and clean. many shopping malls, resturants and supermarket close around. You can enjoy shopping and meal easily.
Very Classy Hotel”
We stayed here for the start of our honeymoon, very well managed hotel of international standards, great room with city view. Card from Manager welcoming us to the hotel for our honeymoon and decorated cake waiting for us in the room as we arrived - nice touch and great start to three really good days. I have stayed here before and will come back again. Casino was great fun. But, the real star was the head Concierge "Thung", I asked for restaurant recommendations and three local night clubs all were just what we had asked for, brilliant. During our stay my wifes diamond engagement ring had a problem, again the concierge arranged a jeweller 5 minutes away by taxi - and they fixed it for free - great example of a quality hotel were the staff are always prepared to go the extra mile to make your stay perfect,
Good stay in Caravelle Hotel”
What strikes me is the level of good and attentive service by all staff. All of them are ready and willing to serve all guests. They are polite , friendly and attentive to small details. Breakfast is good . Good location . Nice views on the Opera House. The only disadvantage is they should come up with better designs and wall paintings and create a more refined ambience like Park Hyatt Saigon.
nice good hotel, centrally located”
The stay was nice and pleasant. The location is superb, you can walk around the town for shopping, dinning, sight seeing and night market, thus you need not to take taxi and face communication problem sometime. Everything you need to do is within reach. Surrounding is safe as it is tourist area thus the police is trying to keep it safe for tourist to walk about at night. Walking around the place at about 11 pm is still very alive.
good location, comfortable room ”
it was a comfortable stay with attentive staff. only downside was during the weekend i was there the lobby had a very bad smell which the hotel probably tried to mask with air freshners once in a while. it was very odd as the washrooms on the same floor did smell better than the lobby. other than that we enjoyed the stay!
Great Location for City Sightseeing ”
Great Hotel centrally located in District 1 of Saigon. The hotel is close to major tourist attractions as well as plenty of good quality restaurants and great shipping. Walking distance to many great areas of Saigon including the main market. Rooms are of a decent size and free Wi-Fi is fast. Taxi's are readily availiable at all hours for any trips out. Travel time is around 30mins to the airport during no-peak hours.
Valued for money.”
The breakfast was excellent, it was once of the best breakfast I ever had in so many hotels that I have stayed. The central location in Dist 1 is also the main reason for me to choose this hotel, within walking distance to many restaurant, shopping and entertainment outlet.
Luxury hotel in centre of Saigon”
we stayed here last year had a wonderful stay again, recommend signature lounge for the extra cost but for Australias standards of 5 star hotel its over priced. On holidays for our last fews nights we splurged on the accommodation. Very nice stay again. Pool was getting renovated the morning of our last day , lots of loud noise of drilling and we couldnt use the pool. Would of been nice to be informed when we booked. Would stay again.
I was able to get a excellent rate and the staff very helpful The only disappointment was the pool was under repair and I couldn't go they did give me a complimentary drink But I might have booked into somewhere else with a pool if I had of known
It's always a pleasure to stay at the caravelle. Great location, comfortable room and for the business traveller, the signature lounge is quiet enough to do work and meetings. Recommended stay for business and city holiday.
Decent hotel in fantastic location”
Hotel is in a great location with nearly all sights in walking distance and easy to come back for some rest inbetween. Rooms are spacious though urgently need some updates; they are nowhere near a 5 star standard.
Hotel is conveniently located, nice view. The room size was relatively good. All the furniture was new and comfortable. Carefully choices of amenities from Thann. Breakfast and services was really good. Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple
Beautiful hotel in a convenient location”
I love Caravelle and will definitely stay there again. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are helpful and friendly. The room is spacious and the bed is so comfy that my husband and I had a hard time getting out of bed. Free WIFI and it works great. The hotel is located in the shopping district and other sightseeing spots (i.e. the opera house).
Always a pleasant stay”
Central location, eatries and cafes available nearby. Nothing negative about this hotel - rooms are clean, bed and pillows comfortable, hotel staff are helful and friendly. i've returned to stay at this hotel for 3years now and it has always been a pleasant stay.
located next to opera house in the old center close to all the activities.. the hotel is luxurious with beautiful rooms. we were upgrade to suite room with small additional fee.. the highlight was the evening coctail and canape session which turned out to be delightful French cuisine with the likes of oysters and rabbit stew and a range of French cheeses and crispy baguette all combined with plentiful wine & champagne.. the variety and quantity definitely come back
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.
Wonderful Hotel, Great Room and Friendly Staff ”
It is my first visit to Ho Chi Minh City and I was recommended to stay in this hotel from my friend whom stayed here before. The Location of this hotel was amazing and it is within walking distance to few tourist spot. Also, there a lot of bars, restaurants, spa and shops around the hotel vicinity. I would definitely come back and stay in Caravelle Hotel if I come back to Ho Chi Minh.
great service, worth the money”
It was great from time of arrival, all questions answered. The staff were wonderfully. Facilities at the hotel make you at home. Internet is for free which everyone needs. The rooster were spacious, clean, and comfortable.
Great location in the heart of HCMC”
My room was on the 20th floor which meant that traffic noise was fairly minimal. I had room service a few times and every meal was fantastic. Also tried the foot massage at the spa, very good. This hotel is close to all the main streets for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing in HCM.
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.
Central location ”
Great location to stay in hcmc, close to cafes restaurants, sights and less than 10mins taxi to Ben than market. Comfortable bed and fluffy pillows, so ensured of a good night rest. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Good selection for breakfast. A recommended stay in hcmc.
It is not the first time I go there and not the last for sure ! It is a great hotel very well located and with a good service . You have everything you need around the hotel at a walking distance . The casino is great too !
a great hotel! nice location. very centrally located at downtown Saigon. lots of restaurant, cafes, bars and shopping his just great. also a nice park opposite the hotel. the rooms are clean and looks nice. staffs are friendly. the lounge is also nice, with nice finger food and cocktails. the coffee house serves great buffet breakfast.
Great location but a bit expensive”
actually, the location is quite good. it locates the center of ho chi minh city. besides, the service is quite good too. however, the price seems to be higher than the others near hotel...or compare to the ho chi minh living standard, is seems to be quite high. moreover, there are so many hotel options you can choose with the lower cost. if you have a budget, it's definitely is a good hotel. if you don't, there are still so many of choices you can choose.
Good Location, Good Hotel and Good Service”
The hotel was right smack in the middle of the city. We welcomed the New Year in this hotel and the street party was near the hotel. The service was excellent and the rooms were very comfortable. They were very thoughtful to give us an adjoining room as we were a family of 4. I will definitely stay in this hotel again when i go to Ho Chi Minh.
Great hotel in fantastic location”
Stayed for two nights with a friend during Viet Nam's Liberation Day celebration. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the hotel on account of it being in a brilliant location that demands you get out and explore the city, but for the time we did spend in the rooms/hotel, it exceeding expectations. The beds are fantastic, the view was great and the hotel bar was rocking. A great time altogether.
