Caravelle Hotel

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The hotel

Part of the fabric of Ho Chi Minh City, Caravelle Saigon oozes history. Its District 1 setting, by Lam Son Square and Dong Khoi Street, could make you think it’s all about location, but the iconic Caravelle comes stocked with many other treats. Its pool’s the ultimate urban hangout, with daybeds, a sunken seating area, and a bar at its edge. Its spa and several of its elegant rooms have Lam Son Square views. And its eight dining and drinking venues include legendary bars like Martini Bar, home of CBS News Bureau in the 60s, and a rooftop bar which was the city’s highest point that decade, and a popular haunt of journalists. Since then, a Champagne Corner has been added downstairs, serving bubbles paired with oysters, caviar and truffles.

Great Staff that are extremely proactive in providing 5 star service Renovation is fantastic and location is right in the center of town. Breakfast covers both Western and Asian. We selected limo pick up. Although expensive compared to a taxi well worth it
