Smack in the heart of Hoh Chi Minh City, the 305-room InterContinental offers easy access to the spoils of Old World Saigon. Rooms and suites have a minimalist Asian flavor with the usual luxury trimmings you’ve come to expect from a five-star property—flat panel LCD, iPod docking station and rainfall showerhead. Of the three restaurants, Yu Chu is a standout with Cantonese and Peking fare, including hand-pulled noodles and dim sum. Even buffet venue Market 39 is a departure from the ordinary, with seven interactive kitchens and locally sourced International fare. Visit the onsite spa for a signature massage, and don’t skip the rooftop pool, with its marvelous glass walls and infinity-edge.
In the Area
The centrally located InterContinental gives easy access to an array of attractions in Ho Chi Minh City. Close to the hotel, neo-Romanesque Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica is an iconic photo-op, with ample shops and retailers at nearby Diamond Plaza. Grab the family and cool off at Dam Sen Water Park, which offers pools, slides and a lazy river; or visit the venerable Saigon Zoo and Botanical Garden, among the oldest zoos in the world and home to a variety of animals and plant life. And for a prime example of the city’s French-colonial architecture—and a memorable show—hit up the Saigon Opera House in season.
How to Get There
The staff doesn’t speak English and the don’t help at all!
The lady in the reception lie to us and was very rude !
We ask for the manager but never show up!
She didn’t answer any question, we went to the closest hotel to ask for help !
They were way nicer!
The breakfast was so so , the staff in the restaurant was much better , do.
Never stay here again !
252 GBP per night and my Spire Ambassador level was not honoured. No room upgrade. No welcome drink. No pay TV film. Did get some fruit but no choice.
Expensive waste of time. Next trip stay in Caravelle
Right from the warm welcome to the property, the friendly staff efficiently moved through formalities and showed me to my apartment that would be home for the next 5 days.
The room was spacious and comfortable in every respect. One half comprises a well-equipped kitchen with electric cooking hob, large Euro-laundry cupboard with washer/dryer, ironing board and iron, a wicker laundry basket, and a clothes horse for air-drying freshly laundered clothes. This half of the apartment also accommodates a 6-seater dining table and large living space that opens onto the balcony.
In the second half of the unit, guests will find a spacious bedroom housing a luxuriant bed and work desk, with plenty of storage and a second flat screen television and security safe box, all of which can be hidden with a series of sliding doors. Separate toilet cubicle and a roomy ensuite bathroom containing a separate tub with hand shower, and shower cubicle equipped with hand shower head and a massive rain shower head that is sure to provide guests with a deluge therapeutic effect second-to-none.
The apartment is air-conditioned throughout.
Superb dining options abound within the InterContinental complex, but the Basilico Restaurant Italian-themed menu is difficult to pass up. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, but be aware that the outdoor tables and benches also cater for smokers.
Staff throughout the property are absolutely amazing. You just have to ask, and there would be someone to answer your questions, offer recommendations, or just to have a quick, friendly chat to understand more about Vietnamese culture, cuisine, and community.
Reluctantly, my stay came to an end all too quickly, but this wonderful experience has me already thinking about planning my next visit.
Stayed here with family for several nights as tourists. It seems a few people have griped about trivial things. Yes there are two sides, the IC and the IC Residences. The residences where we stayed gives you amenities to live somewhat; a fridge, washing machine, kitchen, and so on. The two hotels are connected by a walkway with some goo eating options (nice budget restaurants, the Hard Rock cafe Saigon, and a minimart too). The staff were great. Admittedly there was one bad thing about our stay, 10 days or so before we arrived they notified me our 2 room apartment was not available, annoying as id booked for a family stay. They rectified this and sorted us which was fine. The rooms themselves are very clean and well appointed. As noted, in a hot place like HCMC, its nice to have a washing machine (they provide powder too) and clothes rack to hang stuff up. The bathroom is large, separate toilet. The bed is comfortable. being many stories up noise is not normally top bad but on New Years it was obscenely loud - not the hotels fault, its New Years! the balcony doors have good locks on them for kids. I was very happy with the staff, who helped with taxis, recommendations on where to buy artwork and so on. The buffet breakfast is done via the intercontinental (I think normally 26US). it was very very comprehensive, one of the best my family and I have had. Western or Vietnamese dishes, great service but get ni before about 730 or a bit hectic. The hotel itself is nicely located in district 1 and 20mm to Notre Dame and the post office as a starting point for tourists. The taxi form the airport was only about 15 dollars (200,000VND). Remember you can book a fixed price taxi before you leave the airport at the doors just before the exit in case you dont want to deal with many people (the fixed price was only marginally - dollars - more than the return ride I sorted myself with a taxi. Ultimately very happy we chose this for a family stay even though there was a booking error. Would stay again most certainly.
We love the Intercontinental Hotel. No matter where you stay in the world, service and attention to details is always first class.
The Saigon Residence did not disappoint. We are traveling with the girls and got a two bedroom and two bath room. It has a fill kitchen, giant living room, and spacious rooms.
The restaurants, staff, and location are perfect. I used the spa twice, the relaxation massage and hot stone massage was awesome. My two girls got facials and they loved it as well.
It’s centrally locates and we walked to many places. We didn’t get time to use the pool. Now we are heading to Da Nang after a very enjoyable stay at the a Intercontinental.
Thank you so much for all your hospitality.
