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.
How to Get There
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Park Hyatt and wish I could have stayed longer. The staff are friendly and provide very good service and the hotel is located close to nice restaurants and shopping areas.
This hotel was booked for us as part of an organised trip. It was excellent; the staff were so polite and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. It’s well situated for visiting the sights and the market. There is only one word to describe the breakfasts - amazing.
The only small criticism is that the pool was rather small.
My wife and I felt well take care of at Park Hyatt Saigon. From the moment we checked in, we were served with a welcome drink to being personally escorted and shown around our room. The room was huge and stocked with bananas, dried bananas and bottled water (exactly what we need for our HCM adventure). We were celebrating our anniversary and the staff took extra care to provide a dish of cream and berries as well as a personal note to congratulate us. These are not necessarily big perks but definitely nice touches to our experience at Park Hyatt Saigon. We definitely enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't mind returning when we do make our way back to HCM.
