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.

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.

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.

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

First off, we were welcomed at the airport and guided to a waiting Mercedes. From the beginning the staff was on point. Wow what a beautiful suite. The folks in the club room and the concierge staff couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful.

First off, we were welcomed at the airport and guided to a waiting Mercedes. From the beginning the staff was on point. Wow what a beautiful suite. The folks in the club room and the concierge staff couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful. It's hard to single anyone out, but without asking, Ms Hoai Phuong Pham wrote out a list of best places to go in Hanoi since she knew we were going there next. Get a club room its worth it. Awesome breakfast and enough evening drinks and canapes that we hardly need dinner after. The location is perfect. Easy walk to the Palace or the War Museum. Lots of restaurants and bars close by. Loved the Heart of Darkness brewery on the next block, be sure to go there. Certainly one of the best IHG hotels I've ever visited. Read less

We spent three nights and four days here. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with such smiles and a warm welcomes of Xin Chao! The hotel itself couldn’t be located any better. It was walking distance to so many famous and historic places such as the Notre Dame, the Post Office, the Theater, and much more (Starbucks and Hardrock Cafe was right next door!). Their staff were well trained and very professional. From explaining everything for us and even wishing myself a happy birthday on check in, to organizing two cakes for our celebration! Also, their Housekeeping had no flaws as our room was spotless and very nicely kept. Our room had a very nice view overlooking Ho Chi Minh District 1 and you could see their historic landmarks. Our room was so spacious and modern. Breakfast was located on the first floor with many choices to select. Fresh and delicious! The staff there was also very attentive and helpful. I highly recommend the Library for evening drinks. I recommend their Gin and Tonic selection - so many options and premium quality as well. Overall, if you want to enjoy this beautiful and historic city, I recommend InterContinental Saigon. You won’t regret it! Read less

Arrived expecting 2 accessible rooms however only 1 room accessible. The Team did their best to improvise. Beds ridiculously high for someone in a wheelchair. Overall they tried. Loved the breakfast buffet, enjoyed the Asian restaurant & loved the canapés & cocktails.
