    I was a little disappointed this stay”

    I chose one night at Hotel Continental Saigon again because I was so impressed last time I stayed. Their breakfast buffet coffee machine made the best capuccino I had anywhere in Vietnam! Well now there is a machine that only makes expresso and Americano - disappointing! BUT ... they have got rid of the polyester table napkins and now have nice cotton/linen ones! When I checked into my room around 7:00pm the bell-boy told me the extremely loud music fro the wedding reception below would end at 9:00pm! It got louder, and louder with the mc yelling at the top of his voice over the mike - by 8:50pm my head was spinning - I phoned reception to complain and the music and yelling stopped 15 minutes later. I would have expected a hotel of this standing could at least have checked me into a room away from the wedding racket! I was very impressed with the courteous care from the staff especially the staff who firmly took my arm and assisted me up the front steps and elevator steps - thank you

    Slice of History”

    Superb location. I originally booked the Hotel Continental mainly because of the historical connections (Graham Greene, The Quiet American). Whilst not let down by this aspect, I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and the lovely view overlooking the Opera House from the second floor balcony. I liked the fact that the hotel maintains an old world charm without being dated or dilapidated. It combines that and the modern quite well. The breakfast buffet was of very good quality and variety and the dining room, garden, courtyard setting was very spacious and charming. They could serve breakfast a bit later than 9:30am, most hotels I have stayed in do so at least until 10am, if not later. The hotel staff in general are very friendly, efficient and helpful. The other ammenities, such as the gym and the free steamroom and sauna facilities are are quite good, if not quite outstanding. Would definitely stay there again.

    If you love historic hotels...”

    If you love historic hotels and value for money, this is your place. Excellently maintained, with gorgeous wooden floors and sturdy Vietnamese furniture. I was lucky to be upgraded to an enormous balcony room overlooking the Opera House. The breakfast buffet opening onto the garden patio was a treat, and was happy to be offered a welcome fruit basket, too. You won't find many electrical plugs (none near the bed), the WiFi is spotty in the room, the gym is unwelcoming, and there's no pool. But if you don't mind going back in time, there's no more lovely place to do it. With so much more competition in town, the prices here have dropped, making it one of the best bargains of all the similar historic hotels in the world. Definitely grab the chance to stay here if you can.

    Fabulous Historical Property ”

    The Hotel Continental Saigon is a sumptuous property that takes you back to the era of travelling with steamer trunks! Wonderfully proportioned rooms with lots of carved wood furniture and details. Bathrooms are large and have been updated - you do need to specify if you prefer a walk-in shower or tub. Fabulous location, helpful staff, and many great little restaurants and shops nearby. Highly recommend this property! Room tip: Higher floors away from the main street quieter, but do have to watch out for outside events taking place in the central courtyard.

    If you dream of the Colonial styled Vietnam like the movie the Lover..”

    There were many many choices of hotels in Ho Chi Minh. We choose this hotel by the simple criteria. What kind of Vietnam do we expect to be ? Obviously the Vietnam that we saw in the movie the Lover. Never been there before but as if I have a nostalgia of Vietnam in 20s. This hotel was perfectly nostalgic. We stayed in one of the biggest room. All the furnitures, decorations and even some dust in the room made the start of the trip perfect.

    I quite liked the historical continental suite and will definitely stay there again.The room and bed were comfortable and the view to the Opera House was nice. The Location is superb. However the bathroom needs maintenance in that the hand basin sink didn’t drain well and the exhaust fan smelt like there had been an electrical short/fire.

    Heritage Hotel”

    This is really indeed an heritage hotel, convenient location walking distance to most points of attractions or malls. But, could use a little renovation on the interiors. Colonial furnishings was quite awe but staff wasn't too friendly when we checked in. Could use another option to this.

    Faded elegance in a historic city”

    The Continental is in a perfect position to experience Saigon's most iconic area in the 21st century. With the Opera opposite and restaurants, bars and shops only minutes away it was ideally placed. Our room was in the old wing and smelt musty and we have really appreciated a swimming pool and outside bar.

    A classy hotel”

    No hotel can't be any classier than this one. The decor and elevator may be out of date, but no money can buy its flair of history. The room is spacious. The arched corridors, the stairways, the interior and the restaurants are all very impressive. There's a concierge on each floor although it's unmanned most of time. But you hardly see anything like this any more in newly built hotels, even the five-starred ones. Staff is super efficient, friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. They had banh mi too! The hotel is currently undergoing some renovation. Some rooms in the lower floors smell paint. I alerted to front desk, and was given a room on the third floor. Agoda should display this information on the hotel information page. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there, and will definitely come back.

    Loved My Stay at the Saigon Continental Hotel”

    I stayed 2 nights in a huge room with a sitting room area and a balcony overlooking the Saigon Opera House. I neglected to request a room with walk-in shower as I have difficulties bending my knees to get into the bath, hotel staff were kind enough to move me to a room with separate shower. I loved the French colonial furnishings, impeccable courtesy of the staff and the ambience in the hotel. My favourite was the great buffet breakfast - everything I could wish for. I will definitely be back to stay there again!
