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

How to Get There
We found our room out dated
No lights in Main area Windows had been forced closed so we could not open
Walls are paper thin so we could hear everything from the next room
$40 Aust per head for Breakfast way over the top
Found general staff ok
Not much for our little one,but roof top pool was a winner but drink prices from bar also over the top
Great place for the oldies,the place was fill of them
Stayed here as part of a package arrangement. Check in seamless with staff member escort to room & no messing about at desks. Had a drink in longe bar and it was a wonderful Christmas cocktail made by Mong Ai - she made it great and we really enjoyed it - Sofi Mistletoe it was called - just for December
We enjoyed our stay in Sofitel Saigon. Despite arriving early, they let us have the room. We appreciated it very much as my husband had a meeting in the early afternoon, and he would like to go to the room to take a shower and change clothes. Staff in Sofitel Saigon were very helpful and accommodating. The check-in was efficient. We had an elegant room with comfortable bed and pillows. There were enough sockets in the room for laptop and iPhone etc.. The room also had very good bedside reading lamps so that we could read before going to sleep. Bathroom had all the quality toiletries you would expect. The negative is that the sink was a bit worn out but clean. Most important is that we slept well in this hotel. The hotel is near most of the attractions and good restaurants in the city. We will come back if we visit Ho Chi Minh City next time.
Stayed for 4 nights and we are platinum Accor members.
We were treated liked royalty - lovely room upgrade, superb service in the club lounge and genuine warm and personal attention throughout our entire stay.
Hotel is in lovely location - easy walk to cathedral, old post office and local attractions. There is a courtesy shuttle to the market, quite easy to walk back (pick up a map from concierge)
The rooftop pool was one of the best I’ve visited in Vietnam. Plenty of sunshades too and although it got busy late afternoon the pool team were brilliant. (A bottle got blown off a tray at one point and the health and safety of the cleanup was amazing - with a supervisor actually going over the pool deck with his fingertips to ensure no shards!!)
It's an old hotel, with really outdated facilities in the room. The lobby is updated, but the hallways and rooms are stinky and dirty. The room has no double glazed window or any protection for noise. It's hard to get a comfortable night sleep.
The housekeeping didn't really clean the room, we got dirty towels and no new daily amenities like shampoo.
I tried more than 5 different hotels in Saigon and never had such a poor service and experience. I'm an accor club member and never seen such basic problems from accor group.
The highlight was that hotel charged me 3 times for a restaurant bill. They said their device didn't work, but it worked and money was deducted 3 times from my bank. I did tell the hotel 4 times, but they couldn't manage to settle a simple bill.
The gym is outdated as well.
So location is not that ideal, so I really recommend against this.
