Hotel Continental Saigon
9 expert reviews
“A classic Saigon landmark, the Continental provided the backdrop for much of the action in Graham Greene’s novel The Quiet American.”
– Lonely Planet
"Famed-but-faded gem... However, there are mitigating factors: a central location... a helpful front desk—and a history that begs for a private-sector makeover."
Request third-floor deluxe rooms overlooking the Municipal Theater, which have terrific views from the narrow, New Orleansstyle wrought iron balconies.
"The antithesis of Ho Chi Minh City’s slick and modern downtown hotels, the charming, historic Continental has a to-die-for location."
"The grandly carpeted staircases, marbled floors and dark-wood doors of this venerable address’s halls and corridors convey a colonial splendour that doesn’t quite extend to its rooms."
"One of the most atmospheric hotels in Vietnam, the Continental Hotel is a sight in its own right, featuring classic French-colonial architecture, with arched windows and terraces."
