    Duxton hotel great location

    The Duxton is in a great location its is so central you don't need to take transport any where in district 1. We were able to walk to the war museum, post office and all the bars and cafes we needed to. Staff are friendly and the buffet breakfast is fresh with plenty of options.
    I'd say the only down fall would be the pool. Would be much better on the roof top.

    nice people that couldn't do enough for you. The language barrier was a problem but staff at the Duxton Hotel always found someone to solve the problem. They told us what to see, where to stay away from and how much it will cost. They organized travel, food, drink and points of interest. Ho Chi Min City is a very large city and I thank the staff for all their help. Thank you Gordon and Sandra

    Historical Traveler Reviews Duxton Hotel Saigon Ho Chi Minh City

    Enjoyed our stay

    from

    The location of the hotel is close to the shops, restuarants and markets. The food is good but expensive and the service friendly.

    The only area that was dissapponting is that the pool is small, shady and cold.

    Loved it at "Duk-ton Hotel"!!!

    from

    My colleague and I stayed here for nearly a month last year while on assignment. Couldn't have found a nicer, more professional staff. We were able to negotiate lower rates by calling the hotel directly and speaking to the manager since we stayed for an extended period. The free breakfast every morning was lovely. A great buffet of fresh fruits and Western-friendly staples like bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs in addition to traditional fare like Chao (rice porridge) and various soups from pho to Mi Quang.

    Opulent, gorgeous lobby. Free WIFI in downstairs lobby. Japanese restaurant upstairs. Comparable to a nice Hilton or Hyatt here in the U.S. And the location was absolutely ideal, well within walking distance to the chi-chi Dong Khoi district (Vietnam's version of Rodeo Drive) and Cho Ben Thanh. Also loved the Pho 24 open next door! Overall, great hotel (was nervous initially, but beyond happy with stay!) and will definitely book there on my next visit to Vietnam!

    Great location!

    from

    The location is great! It's within walking distance to many eating places (must try Pho24 that is right beside the hotel!), shopping centre and several places of interest including the Ben Thanh Market. The room is big and nice, and staff are friendly too. The quality of breakfast could be better, but overall it's fine.

    Very Good Hotel

    from

    This is a very good hotel by Asia standards, but there is a lot of building work going on directly opposite the front of the hotel, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. At this rate it will probably be finished in a couple of months.

    Perfectly fine hotel -- not a luxury property

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Duxton for 2 nights in February during a lengthy SE Asia trip. The hotel is a typical plain business hotel that was just fine, particularly given the rate we got (<$100) and the fact that other hotels in HCMC wanted well over $250 per night. It is luxurious only in the way that Holiday Inn is luxurious...if you want luxury, look elsewhere. We only ate breakfast at the hotel and the buffet was fair, nothing too special, but it gave us a good start for the day.

    The room was plain (we did not upgrade to the executive level for the free internet so I don't know if the views or amenities would have been different). We were on the 6th floor looking out over the front of the hotel. Presumably this is one of the better views as we could see the river and the larger hotels/towers of downtown. We also had a wonderful view of a massive construction site that seemed to work til late in the evening. Wasn't really loud, but it was definitely part of the landscape and looks like it will be for a good part of the year.

    The location was excellent so absolutely no problems on that front. If you can get a good rate, then this hotel is fine. But if money is not an issue, you will be disappointed if you spend a lot here.

    Excellent Hotel to relax

    from

    We stayed overnight at the Duxton Hotel after a 7hr bus-trip from Phnom Penh and it was such a relief to find a quiet & relaxing place as the Duxton. The staff are highly professional - our porter kindly explained all the features of the room, attentive service which was not found in any other hotel during our 3 week stay in Vietnam. The room was a good size with large windows overlooking the city. It was very clean & modern yet with a hint of Asian. There was cable TV & mini-fridge as can be expected. Breakfast was buffet-style & quite delicious. My husband was not well during this time & the Duxton kindly allowed us a late checkout at 2pm at no extra cost. Overall the Duxton was an excellent place to stay at, although it was a bit expensive at $88US for Vietnam standards.

    Peace amongst the madness

    from

    This was a reasonably priced hotel (we paid US$80 per night on the internet which included breakfast) in the hub of Saigon, the staff were exemplary, food excellent and the room spotless. We would have no hesitation in staying here again.

    Great hotel with an excellent location

    from

    Staying at the Duxton made our trip to Ho Chi Minh City great. The hotel is luxurious and pleasant; the staff is friendly and helpful in all aspects.

    The hotel is situated well - close to many of the city's attractions.

    Spacious rooms with nice furniture and comfortable beds. A tasty breakfast buffet with Western as well as Vietnamese dishes was complementary.

    The pool and gym are very small but better than nothing.

    Excellent value for money.

    HO CHI MINH CITY: The Duxton Hotel:

    We found the Duxton Hotel just great. Excellent rooms, service, food and the staff very helpful. Very good position and just around the corner is Anthony's Beauty Salon where manicures and pedicures are available for less then US$2.00 ea!!

    Would definitely return to the Duxton if we returned to Saigon.

    Great location

    from

    Very clean and comfortable hotel, right next to the Saigon river. The room was large with good air conditioning, tea/coffee and good mini bar. The food was brilliant, good choice of breakfast, served very professionally by very friendly staff. A great location to base a holiday Chu Chi tunnels are the highlight but everyone must try the tricycle ride around the city, 5 dollars an hour is great value.

    The pool is very small and in the shade from 2pm, it only has 3 loungers but no one else seemed to use the area.

    A very nice stay and would recommend.

    Last night after a very good dinner, all included in the tour, we ended up at the Rex Hotel, a very posh place. It was the favourite watering hole of the foreign correspondents during the Vietnam war. 7.50 for a glass of white wine, you wonder why so many newspapermen are alcoholics! The view from the bar deck was wonderful, see the pic of a …

    Up early, which wasn't as difficult as it might have been as we haven't yet adjusted our body clocks. Marvellous breakfast in the hotel.
    Set off in the coach and went to see the Cuchi tunnels. This is the largest tunnel network used by the Viet Cong in the war. Our guide had a very strong accent which meant I missed a lot of what he said. In …

    Landed a bit late, but as it was 11.30pm body time, 6.30 local time it was all a bit iffy. Went to see the Notre Dame cathedral, built by the French long ago. Impressive, but not as plush and high church as others we've seen. Then off to the Post Office designed by Eiffel of the tower fame. Impressive colonial building.

    It's a 3 hour ride back to Saigon, with a stop about 2/3 of the way for lunch. A passing truck clipped off our side view mirror, so we were able to witness the negotiations between our driver and the other driver; which ended with an exchange of dong to resolve the dispute. Back to the Duxton mid afternoon, so we can relax by the pool and then …

    Arrive Saigon mid afternoon. It is definitely hotter than it's been further north. After checking in to our hotel,which is a typical large city high rise, we take a taxi to the Hard Rock Saigon for Dave to find a new guitar pin and to share a pig sandwich.

    Then we sharpen our resolve to walk about 5 blocks to the Rex Hotel. The potholes …
