This hotel's rich history is emphasized in its colonial décor and warm, old-fashioned service.
For a taste of Old Saigon, two hotels sit at the top of the list: the Continental and the Majestic. Both hotels are centrally located, but the Hotel Majestic has the advantage of being right on the river. The hotel's French colonial architecture dates back to 1925, and despite modernization, the interior maintains a languid, Old World (if not a bit dated) mood, framed by hardwood floors and European-style furnishings.
Coffee and live piano music are a highlight at Catinat Lounge, and as for Breeze Sky Bar, drinks at this lively rooftop venue are a Ho Chi Minh City must. House facilities are varied, from a spa and pretty outdoor pool area to the Majestic Club Casino. The hotel is just a quick walk past the shops and cafés of Dong Khoi Street to the Opera House, and its riverfront location puts floating seafood restaurants at your doorstep.
