A reference point in HCMC with its room's vintage charme and the Saigon Saigon bar. Good service, flexibility in the late check out and a great breakfast with nice staff. Péay attention : it is a NON smoking hotel therefore you will not get nor matches neither lighter when you want a cigarette! Last but not least the blackout curtain... More

Only an overnight stay, but would highly recommend this hotel. Central location, right across from Opera. Large room with lovely view of the city. Pool large enough to swim laps. But best of all was excellent service. Front desk, concierge and business office all very helpful. Also were provided with amazing breakfast to go due to early departure.

This hotel was opened in 1959 and it is located in the city center, near many restaurants and shopping mall. We stayed in a “Deluxe Double” that is a very large and comfortable room. The hotel has a ROOFTOP BAR with perfect view and live music performances.

The hotel was great. Fabulous property. Service throughout the hotel was exceptional with the exception of restaurant 19. The maître d' was very unaccommodating. And I would never to come back and stay at the property but just avoid that restaurant. The casino is pretty nice and the tapas restaurant on the ground floor was excellent.

We visited the Nineteen Restaurant at the Caravelle, Saigon for dinner where they offer a buffet. We have never seen such a spread of seafood ever before... Lobster, scallops, oysters, mussels, various fish dishes, every type of meat, salads, vegetables, fruits, and much more. Everything is prepared fresh to your own taste. Absolutely superb.

Whilst there are more modern hotels to stay in in Ho Chi Minh City, The Caravelle has amazing service, and a brilliant warm feeling about it. It's the kind of hotel you will want to return to.
