Caravelle was an absolute pleasure to stay at. The location is just right, you can access all parts of the City and all the major restaurants / bars / shopping centres etc by foot which is an extra bonus. The hotel is truly 5* and besides the extra-long wait to check-in everything else was great. The gym is also very...

The bedrooms are good at this hotel but are becoming a bit worn now, considering the prices they charge. Good central location. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff efficient and friendly.

The hotel is well-located and with full facilities which you can enjoy the different ways you want to spend on your vacation especially when the weather is too hot to be out. The staff is very friendly and is willing to provide the flexibility to the customers as they can.

Fantastic hotel with very nice staff! I was only one night here, but got for only 50$ upgraded to a room on 23.floor with breakfast and late check out (6 PM), so I could go directly to the airport... Also free canapés and drinks in the lounge - so much food that I did not have to go to restaurant...

I visited Saigon for work, so my review is from that perspective, but should also be relevant for tourists. First, the hotel's location is excellent. It is right next to the Opera House and within walking distance of the downtown places to see and restaurants. The Caravelle was well known during the Viet Nam War as correspondents used to broadcast...

Great value for such a reputable hotel, especially if you have breakfast included. Wonderful staff, and a relaxing pool area make this hotel a good choice when staying downtown. Drinks are pricey up in the bar, but that's what you expect at a 5 star establishment. All in all, a great stay and we will return.

We stayed here for 3-nights and booked a two-bedroom suite which was perfect for our family. Although the rooms are dated, they are well appointed - I note they are due to be renovated soon which will make a big difference. The food and service we found to be of a very high standard. We enjoyed in particular the various...
