Ok hotel but beware there are rooms without windows

The location is fantastic and overall the hotel is reasonable. But beware, there are rooms on an inside corridor that have no windows to the outside, and I got one of those. There are windows in the room, but they look out onto an inside corridor that has an entertainment venue on the other side (I could see a room with a pool table inside and neon signs). So basically you have to keep the blinds completely drawn and it can get depressing. Fortunately the ceilings are quite high, and the room overall was roomy, so it wasn't too claustrophic, but if you are the type of person who does not handle closed spaces well, it is strongly recommended that you confirm with the hotel what room you will get before booking.

Bath room are very large with shower and bath tube. Nice. Fruit basket and chocolate for guest everyday. Wonderful breakfast Buffet, inside and out door. The supervisor , Mr. Quyen is very friendly and always making sure his staffs taking good care of guests at the breakfast tables. Good location , short walk to most restaurants.

Hotel Continental

It was a great hotel for the price we paid. Very good value. We were comfortable. It was strategically located in the middle of everything especially shopping, hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast buffet was sumptuous. I would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends.

A Bit of Old Saigon

The Continental is no longer one of the very top hotels in HCMC, but it still has a touch of class that makes staying here worth while. Rooms are very large and well furnished. The breakfast room is elegant with a full buffet breakfast to suit any taste. And nothing beats sitting at an outdoor cafe table sipping a drink with the old opera across the street.

Outside more than inside

Nice building but missing the old atmosphere inside. It is too expensive for the value they deliver.

Excellant hotel in ho Chi minh, close enough to walk to all the tourism attractions in the city. Rooms very spacious and clean. Breakfast buffet very good and staff very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

A Time Capsule Hotel

Continental Hotel Saigon hasn't changed too much in forty years, and that is a good thing. My wife and I stayed there while exploring HCMC for a weekend, and the historic hotel and its great location really rounded out our experience. We loved the old colonial elegance of the place with tall, breezy corridors and breakfast in the courtyard. Fine classical accents in wood and plaster plus the double-height ceiling of our room made us feel like we had come to Vietnam on a steamship. The sandy ashtrays in the corridors and the radio built into our bedside table made us feel like war correspondents swapping gossip in halls. All that old-style character did not prevent the hotel from providing modern comforts. We slept comfortably in firm twin beds and never worried about insufficient air conditioning or hot water. The deep retro bathtub, complete with foam and salts, was a big plus for my wife, a connoisseur of baths. Unexpected pleasantries included an easy-to-use wifi connection and a bowl of tropical fruits, lovely green bananas, a pomelo and a dragonfruit. We were awakened early by an 8:00 AM concert on the steps of the theater across the street, but we stepped out onto the room's balcony to listen a bit and spied local attendees parking their motor scooters beneath the stairs to watch from their bike seats. After that it was time for a good breakfast with plenty of sweet coffee. Once fed we could walk from the hotel to just about anyplace on the tourist trail. We saw the War Remnants Museum and Reunification Palace, but we came back to the area around the hotel for shopping and food in the evening. The Continental added a nice sense of time to our exploration of a fascinating city space.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Check out L'Usine on Dong Khoi Street nearby for chic nibbles in a great renovated space. Look for their signboard hanging above a sheltered alleyway just past the garish Louis Vuitton shop on the corner. Go into the lane and up the stairs on the right. The very chic cafe has yummy sandwiches, coffees, and impeccable teas from Mariage Freres Paris. A friendly sunny hideaway.
