At the core of Ho Chi Minh’s business district on historic Le Duan Boulevard, the Sofitel blends très élégant Old World styling with Vietnamese hospitality and easy access to the area’s shopping, dining and nightlife. Rooms are clad in contemporary Southeast Asian décor, relying on a muted gray palette with splashes of tangerine and orchid. Two restaurants offer a choice of international fare, with brasserie L’Olivier serving up Provençal cuisine under the direction of Chef Sakal Phoeung. The full-service Rendez-Vous Natural Spa has a range of massage and body treatments, as well as a well-stocked fitness center, and the rooftop pool is an oasis overlooking the city.
In the Area
The Sofitel’s Le Duan District locale puts you in a prime spot for shopping, with Diamond Plaza and colorful Dong Khoi situated less than a half-mile away. Visit the Saigon Opera House in season for an unforgettable show, or visit Ho Chi Minh Museum or the Fine Arts Museum to browse prominent works of art from throughout the region’s history. Your concierge can also point you in the right direction for a self-guided walking tour of Ho Chi Minh City, including photo-worthy stops at Chinatown and the Reunification Palace.
How to Get There
Every need was met with courtesy. The staff just couldn’t do enough, making it a wonderful holiday. The room was very comfortable and absolutely spotless. Free use of the swimming pool added to the daily relaxation.
The location is great if, like us, you enjoy walking to discover a city.
On arrival, we were greeted warmly and escorted up to the Club Lounge, where we checked in. We were then taken to our room. After making an informal, off the cuff remark about outside noise, via an online welcome guest survey, management proved very proactive and immediately moved us to accommodation on the other side of the building. Things can go wrong at the best of establishments, but it's how these matters are dealt with that sets hotels apart. The suite we were given consisted of a lounge room and a large, comfortable bedroom. The bathroom featured a rainwater shower, double basins, an elegant, claw-foot bath tub and a television. There were great views of the city and surrounds.
As a platinum Le Club Accor member, I received a large fruit basket, sweet treats, drink vouchers, access to the Club Sofitel Lounge and a late check out until 6:00 PM.
Evening canapes in the Lounge, included all the usual offerings plus lovely, fresh Vietnamese spring rolls, sushi and specially prepared goodies brought to the table. There was also a free flow of beer, spirits and wine (including sparkling).
Breakfast at the restaurant was excellent, with an egg station, a choice of freshly made juices, bakery items, and Vietnamese specialities. They also had ice cream!
All members of staff we met from front of house and housekeeping to management and waitstaff in the lounge and restaurant were exemplary, being both friendly and efficient.
Pre-stay emails were answered promptly and helpful information provided.
