Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta

A travel blog entry by delmhirst


After a short plane ride (on a jet) we landed in Saigon, otherwise known Ho Chi Minh City. We checked into the Hotel Continental, a very famous gathering place for writers, war correspondents and authors like Graham Greene. It showed its age but had great character and great service. We had a lovely room overlooking the street and the Saigon Opera …

Good Morning England. This is DJ Gaz on Viet Cong FM. Itís about 92 degrees in downtown Saigon and right now very humid. And we have an important message for all you GIís living off-base.

The war was being run by a bunch of 4-star clowns who were going to end up giving the circus away. A couple of cut-throat mercenaries were called in to …

Vietnam - a paradise

A travel blog entry by jojotravels


What is is about the letter H? Seems like all the fascinating places in Vietnam begin with an H - well, at least those Helen and I have visited in the last two and a half weeks as we have travelled from the north to the south of this amazing country; Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An and Ho Chi Min (Saigon), and not forgetting Mai Chau and the Mekong Delta …

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

A travel blog entry by zsimmons


The most memorable activity of Vietnam had to be in Ho Chi Minh (AKA Saigon) at the War Remnants Museum. This was original formerly called the American War Crimes Museum). I wasn't really sure how to feel when I walked in. Nervous, maybe a little embarrassed? It was certainly a powerful set of exhibits to see. Exhibits included graphic photographs …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Continental Ho Chi Minh City

    Amusing attempt at colonial chic


    We stayed at the Continental in Saigon for one night in January in a Junior Suite booked directly with the hotel for approximately $120 + 15%tax etc (which makes it expensive for Saigon)

    Ubicación Perfecta


    Cosas buenas:

    La ubicación es perfecta - en la parte más bonita de Ho Chi Min.

    Las habitaciones son grandes y ventiladas y teníamos unas preciosas vistas sobre la plaza.

    Cosas malas:

    Se celebró una boda durante las dos noches que estuvimos en el hotel -una terrible música de karaoke subia a través del suelo y el personal del hotel parecía reacio a ayudarnos.

    El Centro de Negocios- encontrarás a la mujer más desagradable que trabaja allí - No puede ser más brusca o menos cooperadora, ¡y te cobran 1$ por minuto de internet!


    Aburrido y falto de imaginación.

    Perfect Location


    Good Things

    Location is perfect - its in the nicest part of Ho Chi Min.

    The rooms are large and airy and we had a beautiful view overlooking the square.

    Bad Things

    A Wedding was being held at the hotel on both of the nights we stayed - dreadful kareoke style music came pounding through the floor and the hotel staff seemed reluctant to help.

    Business Centre - met THE Most unpleasent women who worked in here - she could not have been ruder or more unhelpful AND they charged $1 a minute for the internet !!


    Boring and unimaginative.

    Perfetta ubicazione


    Lati positivi

    L'ubicazione è perfetta; si trova nel punto più bello di Ho Chi Minh.

    Le camere sono grandi e ariose e godono di una vista meravigliosa sulla piazza.

    Lati negativi

    Siamo rimasti due notti e entrambe le volte c'era un matrimonio: attraverso il pavimento potevamo sentire il suono martellante di questa orrenda musica tipo karaoke e il personale dell'hotel sembrava restio ad aiutarci.

    Business Centre: lì ci lavora una donna INCREDIBILMENTE scortese che non avrebbe potuto essere più maleducata o scostante. INOLTRE fanno pagare $1 al minuto per l'uso di internet.


    Noiosa e scialba.

    Großartige Lage


    Nun ja, das Continental hat seinen Zweck erfüllt...ein Ort zum Duschen und Schlafen!! Die Einrichtung der Zimmer war sehr altmodisch. Stühle mit übertriebenen Verziehrungen, glänzende Satinbettwäsche...nicht, dass das irgendwie wichtig wäre. Auf dem Tisch lag eine Liste auf der stand, was man alles dort "kaufen" konnte, inklusive der Kopfkissen, Bettwäsche, Stühle usw. Sehr witzig! Es müssen dort in der Vergangenheit viele der Gäste etwas als "Andenken" mitgenommen haben! Wir hatten einen Tag kein heißes Wasser und nachdem wir angerufen hatten erschien eine Frau mit einer Thermoskanne!! Nachdem wir das Problem ihr dann vor Ort erklärt haben, kam ein Mann mit einer Leiter und ein anderer Mann samt der ersten Frau in unser Bad. Es wurde dann sehr viel und laut diskutiert! Sie sind 10 Minuten später dann wieder gegangen und sagten uns, dass nun alles wieder okay sei. Wir können also sagen, dass der Service gut war!! Es war zwar kein lautes Hotel, trotzdem konnte man Leute, die spät auf ihre Zimmer zurückkehrten, auf den Korridoren hören. Das Hotel erinnerte uns an ein altmodisches Krankenhaus. Es gab sogar auf jeder Etage eines diese Fensterbüros, das wie eine Triage aussah!! Das Frühstück war okay, es dauerte aber oft sehr lange, bis sie wieder neues Besteck brachten, wenn dieses mal aus war. Das Personal an der Rezeption war sehr effizient und die Portiere waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit mit dem Gepäck und beim Rufen von Taxis. Die Lage ist exzellent, gleich neben der Oper. Zum Markt geht man 10 Minuten zu Fuß und in die andere Richtung sind es auch nur 10 Minuten zum War Remnants Museum.

    Perfekte Lage


    Wir waren von dem Moment an als wir unser Zimmer betraten vom Hotel begeistert. Vier Fenster und Fenstertüren zum Balkon haben dem Zimmer eine luftige Atmosphäre verliehen. Uns wurde vorher gesagt, dass es sich nur um ein 3-Sterne-Hotel handelt, aber wir fanden es viel besser als das Rex, das 4 Sterne hat. Die Zimmer im Continental waren viel geräumiger und schöner. Okay, der Rezeptionsbereich war nicht gerade prachtvoll, aber ich glaube, dass das Zimmer wichtiger ist. Der im Freien liegende Innenhof war fantastisch und das Frühstück hatte alles, was man sich wünschen konnte. Die Lage ist großartig - man kann zum Fluss und den Bin-Tanh-Märkten laufen. Auch Geschäfte sind nicht weit. Ich war vom Hotel sehr beeindruckt.

    Great location


    Well the Continental served it's purpose....a place to shower and sleep!!

    Perfect location.


    We loved this hotel from the moment we walked into our very spacious room...4 windows and french doors opening onto a balcony gave it a very airy feeling..we had been told that this was only a 3 star hotel but found it much superior to the Rex which is classed as 4 star...the rooms in the Continental are far more spacious and it just has a nice feel to it.. Ok the reception area isn't as grand but I think a nice room is more important.

    The outside courtyard is fantastic and the breakfast is all you could possibly wish for. The location is great- within walking distance of the river and the Bin Tanh markets.

    Shopping at your doorstep..I was really impressed with this hotel.

    Lovely historical place, well situated


    - The hotel shows the nostalgy of the old days. They tried to keep it it as best as possible, although the business center behind glass windows on the right hand side is somewhat anacronic.

    The Good and the Bad of Vietnam


    While the rooms were lovely and the hotel had a lot of atmosphere there were a couple of problems. One is that a bar somewhere close, could be the hotel's own nightclub, had loud music with that annoying bass thumping that went on until midnight each night we were there. We didn't complain as we were too tired and the incessant honking from outside would have been another noise to contend with, so we weren't getting any quiet.
