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.

I have been an IHG member and Ambassador for quite some time and I have spent a considerable amount of time in chain hotels. The Intercontinental Saigon was definitely an exceptional hotel by the group standards. On arrival in Ho Chi Minh airport we were met by hotel staff and quickly whisked to the hotel for check in. This was an additional service, but well worth it. Check in was smooth and rapid, although there was an apparent issue with my card which was rectified smoothly at a convenient time later. The room was comfortable, well appointed and excellent. The club was well equipped, delicious food offerings. Although the variable adherence to the footwear dress code requirement was a bit frustrating. The location was fantastic, walking distance to many sights. We took a stroll to some markets and the War Remnants museum (highly recommend) easily. No need for any crazy taxi experiences. I would recommend this hotel, and would stay again when I’m in Ho Chi Minh next time. Read less

I travel to HCMC about once a year and have been doing so for over a decade. This is the only hotel I stay.

The Intercontinental Saigon has beautifully appointed rooms - large, comfortable beds, attractive and large baths with shower and tub. As others have mentioned, the breakfast buffet is expansive and delicious - something for every cuisine interest. Service from the reception area staff was excellent. It is a busy place, but they work with friendly efficiency. We ate dinner twice at the hotel, but unfortunately the service by wait staff was inconsistent - good one night, not good the second. The price point seems a bit high for HCMC. With the higher price come higher expectations. I would like to encourage the hotel to start taking environmental issues more seriously. Despite the policy of hanging up towels so they are not replaced, our towels were replaced anyway. More importantly, the hotel is not addressing the use of plastics. Other hotels we stayed at in the region during this trip now provide metal water bottle containers and access to filtered water as an option for guests who would like to eliminate the use of small plastic water bottles. Similarly, other upscale hotels now provide large attractive containers for soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion to eliminate the use of disposable plastic containers for these items. Ear buds should have paper, not plastic stems. Plastic pollution is a serious issue. When I have the option, I will select places that are trying to do their part. I hope that the Intercontinental Saigon will start. Read less
