Intercontinental Saigon

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The hotel

Rooting you right in Ho Chi Minh City, InterContinental Saigon is moments from big-name sights like Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Saigon Post Office. It may sit amid HCMC’s history, but it still keeps up with this very modern metropolis – thanks to its contemporary guestrooms, five star service, health club and spa (with everything from a rooftop pool to Yoga Under the Sky classes), and a coveted spot attached to the mPlaza retail and dining hub. This luxury InterContinental pad has its own dining delights of course, including a trattoria-style Italian, a sophisticated cocktail bar, the Cantonese and Peking dishes of Yu Chu, and the seven kitchens of Market 39.

Stayed here for three nights on our recent tour of Vietnam. A five star modern hotel, we usually prefer character style properties over more corporate style but the staff here were so professional, courteous and helpful it more than made up for it.

Stayed here for three nights on our recent tour of Vietnam. A five star modern hotel, we usually prefer character style properties over more corporate style but the staff here were so professional, courteous and helpful it more than made up for it. I can’t have blood taken from one of my arms after cancer treatment and one of the guys on the front desk translated a note to this effect into Vietnamese as I was worried in case we were quarantined due to Covid and wouldn’t be able to relate this. We were also upgraded on arrival to a Deluxe room. The view from our room was awesome. Everything was starting to shut down prior to lockdown when we were there and one of the restaurants was closed in the evening. We ate in the Basilico Italian restaurant and it was very good. We also had lunches in the Library Lounge and Bar. The hotel is centrally located for all the sights. There is a small mall attached with shops and restaurants which is handy, We have very fond memories of our stay here and would definitely return. Read less

Arrived at the airport and our hotel pickup was waiting for us. A short drive to the hotel and we were taken straight up to the club lounge for check in as we had booked a club room for four nights. Our room was excellent with all the amenities you would expect. The club lounge is beautifully decorated and staff were excellent. Breakfast was excellent with buffet offerings as well as a la carte. Afternoon tea and evening cocktails were great also with the usual buffet offerings and some a la carte although I think we would have preferred it if everything was buffet and you didn't have to keep ordering food off a menu. Hotel location is excellent within walking distance of most attractions although you have to get used to the nightmare traffic and take your life in your hands to cross the roads. We eventually got used to this. There are plenty of taxis waiting if you wish to drive. It is also within walking distance of loads of excellent restaurants and bars. A great place to stay. Read less

*A much delayed review, as i stayed during Jan 2018. The hotel is centrally located not far from the city and quite walkable to the city center and some malls nearby. This hotel is connected to an office tower and mall, so its easy to get some traveling supplies while staying here. Online booking of taxis are also easy to book, when moving around the city. There's a busy Starbucks located next to the lobby of the hotel. Room was well decorated, very clean and spacious. Bedding was comfortable as well. I didn't dine at the hotel as there are many wonderful eateries and restaurants in the city. Will return for sure when visiting Saigon again. Read less

We don’t opt for the Intercontinental when we vacation so I was skeptical at first. We were on the club level, we are platinum with other hotel chains and always prefer the club levels. The hotel was beautiful, nicely furnished and very clean. The hotel is in the epicenter of everything and you can walk anywhere and see absorb the culture. The club lounge was my favorite part. The staff was absolutely fantastic. When visiting lounges in big cities it’s always run as a restaurant but this lounge was also a place for relaxation and socializing with other guests. I absolutely loved the staff who treated us with kindness and a level of customer service that is second to none. Thank you Trong for the great conversation and teaching us about your culture. The food in the lounge is also top notch. I have been to many lounges in many cities an this was my favorite. I loved spending time in there. The staff was stellar. Housekeeping is also top notch and so very friendly. This was my first visit to Vietnam and I was very impressed with their friendly attitude and beautiful culture. I fell in love with this country and have to come back. Thank you “The Intercontinental” staff for making this a wonderful vacation. Read less

As a gold Hilton and Marriott member, I usually try and stay at one of these hotels whenever I travel on business. I have to say though that this hotel, and particularly the staff will definitely make me change this going forward. What an absolute gem of a find. Was due to stay at Le Meridian for a couple of nights at the end of a two week trip to Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam, it thought I’d check out the Intercontinental Saigon instead. With the Coronavirus starting to affect things in Vietnam, the hotel was pretty quiet. I booked a club room and have to say that this was an inspired choice. The room was perfect, spacious and luxurious. I was busy whilst in Saigon, so only managed to have afternoon tea on one afternoon, but it was lovely and service by the team so genuine and attentive. Thanks to all of you. One of the ladies in the breakfast room very kindly helped by giving me some information about sights to see, but with me being busy, I didn’t get to have too much of a look around. I also met Russell who was one of the hotel management. Great guy, and very welcoming and accommodating to the request for late checkout. I’ll definitely be back and look forward to seeing you all again soon (hopefully). Read less
