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
Two night stay,
Kudos to this property, it runs smoothly,the staff is professional, knowledgeable & quite presentable.
Great room experience, top cleanliness and amazing set up & views.
If you are looking for a more quiet enviroment,not overcrowed,this is your place to be.
Good gym facilities and great center location.
I do give 4 stars due to my late arrival I was assigned a room facing a contruction side which was still working at midnight with continiously machinery drilling.
Maybe a better room assigment?
Overall great property,looking forward to be back in the future.
Thank you to all the staff at the Intercon Hotel & Residence for making our stay memorable. What excellent service! The 2-bedroom apartments at the residence side are very spacious with a lovely kitchen and bathtub (which is always good when travelling with a little one). We were 5 adults and one one-year old. The roll away beds are lovely, not the small flimsy beds you normally get. The wooden cot had bumpers which is great if you have a baby that sleeps a bit all over the place. Go for the buffet on the hotel side, great food options and baby chairs are available. Don’t forget to try the Vietnamese drip coffee. It’s a bit strong but a must try. Our little one enjoyed the food (especially the chicken nuggets) and they even made her favourite oats! Grab your umbrellas from the room as they don’t provide it downstairs. Great locations and walkable to the post office and church.
A special Thank you Linh and Dang at the front desk for your excellent service!
Just finished a 4 night stay using my points - IHG Platinum Elite member since 1998 (back then Priority club). Hotel was elegant and modern. Suited for the region. Overall, nice hotel, great location.
Now for the skinny.
Entered through the hotel by mistake and not the apt entrance. Upon telling the front desk receptionist I have a reservation. She looked it up and told me I was at the wrong desk and asked me to go to the Residence desk. I felt unrecognized as an IHG Platinum member. However, she did call a concierge staff to guide us there. So no complaints really.
At the Residence front desk:
As everyone reading this knows, “points” are hard earned and well deserved. Some even purchase “points”. Hence, to me, points are valid currency in the IHG world. However, more often than not, I hear “since you are using points, you can NOT...”.
The first receptionist was not as accommodating as an IHG Platinum member would expect. After I asked what can an IHG Platinum member enjoy at this hotel. No lounge - no breakfast- no upgrade at the apts.
second receptionist tried and was able to accommodate my request. She asked we wait an hour and she could get us a nice room with a view. She was concerned this was an inconvenience to us. Good job to the front desk for their “heads up” attention.
Finally, got a great residence. Probably one of the best views in Saigon. We enjoyed the apt. One of the nicest I’ve ever stayed at in 50+ countries.
Great location! Central to many place. Usually a VND 30K drive to major attractions. Actors the Intercon hotel is Book street which takes you to Post office and Notre Dame.
Well worth paying a small extra fee to include brekkie afternoon tea early evening cocktails with lots of goodies to eat, so good hubby and i never left the hotel in the evenings,,, staff extremely helpful,,,would highly recommend ...
Our family of 4 stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. It was huge, very modern décor and very very clean. The only downside to the room was that the blinds in the master toilet did not provide much cover from the morning sun, which lighted up the whole master bedroom at 6 in the morning, as the partition between the bedroom and the bathroom was glass.
The service was very good. The reception was able to answer all our queries and help with all our requests … with a smile. The hotel is also very close to good shopping and nice eateries, although most of the time, we took a cab as the weather was very hot and the roads of Sai Gon are very crowded. A wonderful 2-night stay in Sai Gon. Highly recommend.
