Stayed here for one night at the end of a Mekong River tour as part of the tour. Rooms are huge although a bit dated. I had a room which faced the courtyard and heard absolutely no noise all night. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great. See my other reviews for Ho Chi Min City.

I chose this hotel because I'm a Graham Greene fan, and I stayed in room 217, right around the corner from Greene's room. It was a lovely room, huge and elegant. Room service was quick and pretty tasty, though a little pricey. The towel rack in my room did not want to stay attached to the wall. The spa was... More

I wish I head read the reviews before staying here. The noise is unacceptable. It is an historic building, roomas are a large and clean. Breakfast is only mediocre. While we there a wedding was booked in the central courtyard and the rooms are not soundproof. The noise prevented rest or sleep. I would not stay in this hotel again.... More

We stayed with friends at the Historic Hotel Continental for a four night stay prior to flying home from our Far Eastern adventure. We chose this hotel because of its historical past, built in 1880 it still has all the feel of its french colonial past. Our room was large and well maintained, a little old fashioned in decor but...

Great location and spacious room but this is the noisiest hotel I have been to. It faces on of the busiest streets in Saigon with traffic all night as well as a bar right next to the Opera house with loud (and I mean LOUD) music all night. Seriously, unser no circumstances would I recommend staying here to anyone.

To be honest, our experience started off poorly. We booked a Jr Suite for 3 nights and on their site it stated that our suite would include a welcome drink, fresh fruit, and fresh flowers (among other things). Well, we didn't receive any. When we went down to the lobby to ask, the staff made us wait for close to... More

My credit card was charged one day before my arrival date. Not sure if this hotel is safe for usage of credit card. Please beware of this hotel for any booking and stay at your own risk. When i called the hotel staff ( Mr Pham) and the Duty manager...they are so rude and not wanting to answer the question

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our stay in HCMC and we would definitely go back there. It was not worth the price we paid. Big rooms but that's where the positives end.

Amazing location, no doubt. I wanted to stay here because of its historic status, and that definitely felt special. The complimentary breakfast spread was the best I've seen in Vietnam and exhaustive! However, it's not excellent value for money (which rest of Vietnam is). At first we were given a room with no daylight, which was musty and positively depressing.... More
