Despite the renovations it did not affect us much. The staff could not have been more attentive or helpful. My husband hurt his foot while away and when we returned Management offered us late check out, fruit basket and any other things we needed to make things easier for us. Breakfast was wonderful as it changed a little every day....

This hotel was a wonderful - great location and absolutely beautiful. Staff were incredible and the room/suite far exceeded our expectation with regard to size and luxury. We were able to walk wherever we needed to go, and the main historical landmarks and museums were all nearby.

If it is location you are after, this is the hotel for you. We walked everywhere- an easy ten minutes to the reunification palace, war remnants museum and local restaurants. We were disappointed about the renovations going on, considering the price paid. The lobby, breakfast and reception are all in make shift function rooms on the third floor. This is...

Beautiful hotel, located in the heart of downtown Ho Chi Minh City. Literally steps away from great shopping, sightseeing and restaurants. The breakfast buffet, served every morning, was outstanding. Combining a mix of Asian and Western breakfast staples, there's something for everyone. Highly recommend the Caravelle to people traveling for both business and pleasure.

We couldn't have asked for more during our stay at the Caravelle!
