Ho Chi Minh, in some ways may not be what you expect of Vietnam. It is a very modern city, in many ways as a lot of it was destroyed during the war. Now there are new multi story buildings housing offices, serviced appartments, and hotels in Saigon, mixed in with some of the smaller Chinese style shop houses. It is more compact than Hanoi, and again choosing a hotel by location is not really a concern. It has much more of a night life than Hanoi, with bars and discos scattered all over the city.

Caravelle Hotel - - Great location, probably the best in Ho Chi Minh, as this hotel is practically on top of everything, and just opposite the Opera house. They have a lovely bar on the 10 floor, which offers lovely views while listening to a live band. The hotel only opened 1998 so everything is new, and in good condition. The rooms are bright, with all amenities that you would expect. The Caravelle Hotel won a Premier Travel Award for Excellence in 1999 and also continued its success in 2000. See pictures of this award wining luxury hotel with special rates and online reservations.

Equatorial - - A Beautiful hotel well appointed and sized rooms, and a great swimming pool. This hotel has some very special deals. A good choice. Special rates pictures and online reservations.

Hotel Sofitel Saigon - - One of the latest additions to the hotel scene this hotel is very well appointed, and is everything that you would expect from a 5 star hotel. See pictures of this hotel with special hotel rates and online reservations

Omni Saigon - - This is a majestic hotel, and is managed by Marco Polo Hotels. Beautiful property that serves an excellent lunch buffet. Its' downside however is the location, this is the second closest hotel to the airport, and because of that unless you have business in the near vicinity you would be much better off, downtown. Although even in rush hour it will never take more than thirty minutes to travel downtown by taxi. See pictures of this hotel and special rates.  

The Renaisssance Riverside Saigon Hotel - - The most recently opened hotel in Saigon. Offering guests views over the Saigon river. The rooms are very well appointed,  and with three excellent quality restaurants/lounges, an excellent gymnasium, and a swimming pool commanding excellent views from the 22nd floor, what more could you need for a successful business trip or enjoyable holiday. 1999 and 2000 Premier Travel Award Winner for Excellence.

New World Saigon - - This is presently the biggest hotel in HCM, and serves many dignitaries on their visits. It has one of the best executive floors in Asia and serves around four food presentations a day there. The rooms are nothing extraordinary, but just what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. 

Novotel Garden Plaza - - Another new property. This hotel is the closest to the airport about 5 minutes from the Omni above, and because of this does offer some very special rates. Again though if you do not have to be in that vicinity then you are much better off downtown at one of the other properties. See pictures, special rates and online reservations.

Windsor Saigon Hotel - Review to come - See pictures, special rates and online reservations

Saigon Prince - - This hotel is part of Duxton hotels and is very popular for some reason with the Japanese clientele. They do have a Japanese restaurant, but it may have more to do with the very extensive and professional massage centre that they have. All above board (I believe), the girls pummel away, with acute expertise. Great little boutique hotel.

The Majestic - - You will be relieved to know that this, as its name suggests is not a new property. It is a beautiful majestic hotel. The food and beverage outlets are reasonable, the pool is relatively small, and you will have to move around it to follow the sun, the gym is adequate (for me-one dumbbell normally leaves me exhausted !) but the rooms are great. This is a hotel that has character, true it is not the Raffles of Singapore, nor does it have the same level of service, but it is a hotel that can take you back in time. The rooms are large, and some of the suites, have Jacuzzi and separate shower. This is a great hotel if you want to know that you have been in HCM rather than collect points from a chain frequent guest programme.
