A good Hotel, nicely located in the heart of Saigon with an excellent breakfast buffet......but an even better dinner buffet. Attended this on a Sun night, the restaurant was packed (reservation is highly recommended) and the quality of food, both sea and meat, is simply outstanding. The reasonable flat rate includes red and white wines beside beers and soft drinks.

The location of the Caravelle Hotel is perfect - in the heart of District 1 in the square that has the Opera House. There is some construction in front of the hotel currently (which doesn't impact the hotel interior) and the reality is, in cities like this there will always be construction. They are putting in a train line under...

It is slightly dated but standard being kept extremely well and consistent over the years. We would return here for our next trip to SE Asia. Thanks to all staff for excellent service, especially to the Nineteen buffet restaurant and the Opera cafe.

We have visited the Caravelle before for meals or coffee but not stayed. This was a short stop but a real treat with a beautiful comfortable room, great service and good facilities. Located in District One makes it close to most places you want to visit for work or leisure.

Had been to the Caravelle before for the Saigon Saigon bar but this was the first time we had booked a room. The location is perfect as it is in the heart of HCMC - easy to walk to the sites or a shot cab ride. The staff is top notch as we were well taken care of. We ate...

We only stayed for one night at The Caravelle Saigon. Everything with our stay was fine. Our room was well appointed, the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a good meal in the fine dining French restaurant in the hotel. It was a good restaurant with good views.

The Caravelle is winning with its location & food & beverage outlets. I like their Cafe where offers easy breakfast buffet for me, i.e. nice bakery, great local tastes, lots of cold cuts serving for our choice. The room rate is absolutely value for money. It's located at the center of district 1... I really appreciate it!

The hotel is very old and needs refurbishment especially the rooms and bathrooms. It's expensive given the quality of the hotel compared to Other hotels in the area. The drinks are very expensive unless you do the happy hours which they have in different places at different times. It needs a happy hour in the pool bar as it is...
