Historic Hotel in the heart of District 1

Pros: Historical hotel, amazing service!
Cons: Ice machines. Ice is so hard to come by. Having access to clean ice would have been very nice. Onsite ATM would also be convenient.
Location: Do check out the souvenir shops right across the street! You can find a lot of things marked cheaper than you can haggle in the markets!
The hotel is very clean, rooms were spacious, staff was incredibly friendly. Walking distance to just about everything district one has to offer. Many great restaurants right in the hotel, beautiful rooftop bar. Careful of the cyclone drivers outside, while a great way to explore the area, make sure and agree on a price and pay up front.

Best Location Downtown, Historical value - Facilities can be perfect

Pros: Close restaurants
We stopped at HCM city, stayed at Caravlle hotel for 4 nights during the Tet festival of 2012. The surrounding city blocks are beautifully, cheerfully, and yes artfully decorated for the event. Caravelle hotel as a class by itself does not bother at all dressed up from the outside. You have to walk in the lobby to see the huge Mai tree, the Vietnamese traditional Tet plant. That's all there is for the festive mood. The lobby, the lounge may need the better eyes of tasteful interior designers. There is a lack of sophistication at the reception areas, the ground floor. Not a hint of French flair as one would have expected. First impression is found by looking through the windows towards the city opera palace, the historic Lam Son Square. Caravelle hotel is at the best of the best locations. Everything is within 10-15 minutes casual walk, including the 100+ year-old Cathedral; Post Office; City Hall, Ben Thanh Market, numerous cafes; restaurants, shops A part from deadly street crossings, we feel safe. We waked up, joggling early to beat the heat, humid; consistently sunny 90+ F, and the crowd. It is a very pleasant experience, added by contacts with friendly, respectful, helpful locals and mindful tourists. We stayed at the deluxe double view room on the 20th of the 23 floors new tower wing. The view is awesome, the room is a bit small but bedding, bathroom are perfect. Very clean, excellent services twice a day. Staffs are disciplined, services are prompt impeccable. We had 3 AM wonderful snacks of seafood congee, spring rolls. We also ate at the Sai Gon bar on the 7th floor. We used the nice swimming pool every day and share experience with satisfactory hosts like us.

Comfortable with a caring staff

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, helpful staff
Stayed four nights over a period of a week. Can't say enough about the staff, very helpful and friendly. Good food at breakfast and good, but pricey, evening buffet. Fresh fruit in the room was replenished daily, nice touch. There is some kind of theater across the street that played music outdoors at night that disturbed my wife's sleep, it did not bother me and not the hotel's fault. Overall, a wonderful place to stay in the center of Saigon shopping and restaurants.

Excellent hotel in the heart of the city!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Though somewhat unimpressive as you enter the lobby, this hotel provides excellent accommodations and value for your money. The Caravelle is situated in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City within walking distance of many major attractions. It also provides a quiet respite when the bustle of the city becomes overwhelming. The rooms are large by many standards and immaculate.

Vietnamese-American Favorite Hotel in Saigon

The hotel I stayed in during my second business trip in HCM. Its great location and friendly - but professional - staffs have exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended for up to one week stay. Saigon Bar on roof-top has easy atmostphere and the night sights of the surroundings are just awesome! Highly recommended.

Perfect Location

A Night Across the Opera

Located in the heart of the city's tourist center, the Caravelle hotel poses as an elegant yet fun lodging - all with the security in the league of Fort Knox. Whether you wish to explore the historic city center with its myriad of restaurants, cafes and locally owned shops or just want to enjoy the stunning view of the city from the rooftop while sipping a refreshing drink accompanied by live music, the Caravelle is a good a starting point as can be. The only downside is that its ambiente is missing the local flavor; it could be located anywhere.
