Gleaming, colonial-inspired grande dame in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City
This imposing 244-room beauty radiates French Colonial elegance, and offerings like proper afternoon tea and a swank martini bar expand on the Indochine theme. Rising nine stories above Lam Son Square in busy District 1, the hotel is ideally situated to take advantage of historical sites and Saigon’s best shopping streets. The property also acts as an urban oasis guests may not want to leave, thanks to a pool set in tropical gardens and tended by attentive staff, and a smorgasbord of dining options – from the upscale Italian restaurant Opera, overlooking the opera house, to Vietnamese-oriented Square One, or The Lounge, with its posh afternoon tea ritual. The Xuan spa, meanwhile, showcases distinctly southeast Asian treatments, from an apricot blossom massage to a lymphatic treatment using bamboo suction cups.
In the Area
Just steps from the hotel are the magnificent 800-seat Opera House, built in 1897 by French architect Ferret Eugene, and the Neo-Romanesque basilica Notre Dame. See the thoroughly modern capitalist side of Vietnam at one of its glitzy malls: both Vincom Center and Diamond Plaza offer plenty of high-end ways to part with cash. Then dive back into raucous old Saigon at the Binh Tay Market, the largest Chinatown in Vietnam, set on the banks of the Saigon River, where you can do everything from slurp noodles to haggle for Chinese spices.
