i stayed in room 221 (Junior Suite), a few doors down from 214, which was the room used by the British writer Graham Greene in the 1960s. The property is pretty from the outside, with large ceilings. The lift is horrendously slow, and the rooms are old fashioned. To be fair it is run by state-owned tourist company, so expectations should adjust. The showers were a bit temperamental (probably old pipes/low pressure) and the room safe needed a bit of magic to work. The welcome fruits were sour. ... Read more

This is a hotel with old charm and style. The reception service is very professional with staff speaking excellent English. I found the staff throughout the hotel friendly and helpful. The very well-appointed and comfortable restaurant provided excellent service. The bedroom air conditioning was effective and quiet (as aircon goes!) If you want a nice change from modern hotels this one is for you!

We stayed in Hotel Continental Saigon for 2 night for a short visit to Vietnam. The hotel was built in the late 1800's and has maintained the old-school charm to perfection. The hotel itself is stunning in how well they have kept up the original structure, décor and overall interior styling. You will NOT believe the luxuriousness of the rooms - incredible. The doormen are extremely pleasant. I would like to make special mention of the concierge/tour advisor, Phoebe. She is an angel and attended... Read more

The room was very spacious and comfortable, free internet although not always a strong signal, A/C worked great. Location was very central to many shops, restaurants and tourist sites.

We returned to HCMC early after 4 weeks travelling around Vietnam, had stayed at another hotel but thought we would try here, after all it has a bit of history. We had a room with balcony overlooking Opera House, not noisy at all, big rooms but god awful decoration. The room was actually on a slope from door to window. A lot of wooden frames and a sigh saying if anything taken from room how much each item cost? I know people take sovereigns but 'pillow case" the huge lounger, plates. and also ... Read more

Well I think its the nicest hotel in HCMC. Its classy with historical rooms, that date back to 1880. The services are very modern of course. The breakfast is divine in their open air interior yard (noiseless). Their street café is very chic. The theme is very French, dating back to those days. Highly recommended

Stayed here 3 nights. Terrific location, right in the heart of Saigon and full of French colonial charm. Room on the top floor was clean, spacious and recently updated. Lovely courtyard with a very good breakfast selection. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend staying here or the Rex when in Saigon if you want to experience the echoes of a bygone era when France reigned supreme. Don't expect 5-star, but do expect character, charm and a cracking location.

I stayed here because of the hotel's history and superb location. I was ecstatic to find myself in the very room where Graham Greene wrote The Quiet American (although the Metropole in Hanoi claims the same but no doubt he wrote bits of it all over the place) but was rather disappointed and will not stay here again. First the good: Unbeatable location in the very center of Saigon overlooking the opera house. Large, clean rooms (although mine had 2 columns in the middle) with a comfortable be... Read more

Stayed two nights and travelled on business. Was very nice. It's an old colonial type of hotel. The breakfast was good and loved the restaurant atmosphere. The staff was always serving with a smile. The rooms although had a smell of smoke. That was the only downside.

Was in Ho Chi Minh City last weekend to attend a wedding. Groom recommended this hotel as he used to stay here before. It is a very old hotel but got maintained well. It is also close to many attractions, such as Opera (next door), Independent Palace, Notre Dame, and War Remnants Museum. The breakfast buffet offers a good variety of food selection.

A fine stylish building built in 1880 its architecture is typical of the time - designed to withstand tropical heat but with the grace and elegance of a top class hotel. The design is still relevant, with a glorious courtyard which is used for breakfast and old world common areas which have a calming affect when arriving from the hustle and bustle and heat of the streets outside. Opposite the Opera House and in a prime location near many restaurants, cocktail bars, shops and places of interest, ... Read more

The Continental is an historic building and makes a great base in Saigon. It doesn't offer 5 Star luxury but it is charming, comfortable, right in the centre and a delightful place to hang out for a few days. Pluses: great location; old world feel; very pleasant staff in general; breakfast pretty good (although bread/pastries disappointing); very large rooms and ensuites; pleasant having a drink at the street-side tables outside the hotel. Drawbacks: somewhat worn at the edges - 4 star not 5; th... Read more

I found the continental to hit a nice balance between historically inspiring while still offering comfort. My room interior had great style with lots of fine carved woodwork and plenty of space. I was just over the main entrance on the second floor which offers great people watching and a fine view of the opera house. The buffet breakfast was also a highlight offering a nice selection of food just off of their historic courtyard. Since it's state run you won't get quite the spoiling you migh... Read more

The Continental has been around for a long time and is quite stunning. Could not be in a better location for getting around Ho Chi Minh City. I was upgraded upon arrival to a corner deluxe suite which was simply amazingly large (2 large rooms), filled with gorgeous Indochine antique furniture, and with glorious views of the Opera House across the street. The beds and lines were very comfortable. Unfortunately, the carpet does need upgrading... But I am happy to report that as we were checki... Read more

We were impressed by this old French built centrally placed hotel. It is close to central city and surrounded by a couple of quality shopping malls with good food outlets.

I stayed in the Hotel Continental over a weekend, and highly recommend this hotel if its within your budget. The hotel is like stepping back into history. Built in 1880 and also where a significant number of journalist stayed during the Vietnam War. The hotel public space and rooms are beautifully preserved. Bathrooms are clean and modern. The staff were incredibly helpful with recommending places in the area. The breakfast buffet was also great too! One thing to be aware of is that some of th... Read more

This is a grand old hotel built in 1880, and run by Saigon Tourist state agency. We stayed in a junior suite which was huge, well furnished in a classic style, and well appointed. Each room has individual wifi which is a big plus compared to those hotels that advertise wifi, but the router is way down the corridor, and you can't reach it! Buffet breakfast is excellent, and staff are helpful and courteous. Hotel restaurants are fine dining and a bit pricey, and not well patronised. Not ideal for ... Read more

The breakfast spead was good too and the staff friendly. Two things I was not happy about.

My wife and I stayed here for 12 days. We were here for a family wedding. The hotel combines old world elegance with modern convenience. The rooms are very large and the beds were comfortable. The wifi is strong and the air conditioning a lifesaver in July. The included breakfast had many eastern and western options. The staff took service to the highest level. We enjoyed sitting outside and drinking coffee. We will be back.

Legendary hotel, probably one of the best location in Saigon not to say the best. Nevertheless the rooms seriously need to be refurbished.

I wish we had done the same this time too! The hotel was obviously a very grand affair in its day and was use by various correspondents and writers during the conflicts.

If you're after the old french colonial style, try the Continental Saigon hotel. Prices are reasonable for a palace (you can get a room for around 80$ breakfast included). It's like time stopped for at least 70 years. Rooms are very big with large windows. Breakfast is served in a veranda. The hotel also have a spa with sauna and steam room. Location is very central in disctrict 1 facing the national opera house.

Beautiful hotel in the best part of Saigon. It is just across the Opera House. Nice and easy walk to every main sight in the city. The rooms are very spacious but no doubt they need some more attention. The carpet was old and a bit musty. The housekeepers were extremely noisy from 6AM, chatting loudly and slamming the doors. It would be great if they could have more consideration and be a bit more quiet, as I guess a lot of people still want to sleep longer.

The Hotel Continental Saigon is my third stop on a tour of around a dozen hotels across Asia that comprise the hotels still operating that were part of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century "grand tour". It includes stops at the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok and the E&O in Penang, to name a few. So my prime reason for staying at the hotel was from an historical perspective. Having said that, the hotel was quite reasonably priced for the standard offered. The constraints of keeping the... Read more
