Caravelle Hotel

Saigon, Vietnam

Originally opened on Christmas Eve 1959, The Caravelle was then and is still now, one of the premier hotels in the city.

While the Caravelle played its part in Vietnam's war history and is still very atmospheric, after a complete overhaul in 1998 the only reminders of that time are pictures that decorate the hotel interior. The renovation included the addition of a new 24 storey tower and the hotel now has 335 elegant guest rooms, an outdoor free form swimming pool and all the facilities you would expect from a modern hotel.

Overlooking the historical Opera House and Lam Son Square on Dong Khoi Street, which is the heart of Saigon's shopping and nightlife area, it also has one of the best locations in the city. There are two restaurants offering contemporary fine dining, as well as the iconic Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar, with views overlooking the fast changing city skyline.
