Caravelle Hotel

One of Saigon's top hotels

Save to my Account

Like the Hotel Continental, the Caravelle Hotel acts as a book-end to the Opera House in Lam Son Square and has long been considered the residence of choice for well-heeled visitors to the city. Though it’s not as old as the Hotel Continental, having been built in 1958, it has still seen many changes in its lifetime, including the drama of a bomb explosion in room 514 in 1964, when nobody was killed though many were injured.

Initially a ten-storey tower, the hotel has now added a 24-storey newer wing to accommodate guests, and despite fierce competition from established five-star hotel chains in the city, the Caravelle continues to set the benchmark for top-notch facilities and service. Its best known feature is the Saigon Saigon Bar on the roof of the old building, popularized by journalists in the ‘American War’ and a great place to enjoy a sundowner while taking in views across the city.
