David and I went to breakfast in the Saigon Club in the hotel. The breakfast buffet was unbelievable with an omelet station, breads, fruits, Asian food, etc. We ordered cappuccinos and enjoyed a great breakfast. David left before I did as he as meeting some of the men to go to a sports bar in town to watch the …

We woke up at 4:05am and took our carry bags to breakfast at Furama hotel in Da Nang (China Beach). Our bus left after breakfast (5:15am) for the Danang airport for our flight to Ho Chi Minh City. Our flight departed at 6:35am. It was about an hour flight. After arriving at 7:50am to Saigon, we collected …
Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) was the next place for our trip... and we had a few ups and downs in our travels. The ups being the city, and the downs being with David spending an evening in hospital attached to drips getting medication... but thankfully he is all right! Starting on the positive side, we did two tours in Ho Chi Minh on the back …
I intended on going to the war remnants museum today, but initially I thought that it opened at 1 in the afternoon after which point Ellen and I would go to get our hair done at her local place. But After she left and we had made plans I checked and it didn't open until 1:30. So I'll just go on Sunday. Whatever, the cats and the computer enjoyed my …
What a magical 2 weeks, I can't even believe all of the wonderful things we have done and seen, Amy, Cliff, Wendy and I did such a nice job traveling together and believe it or not we were all really sad to leave each other. I think mom would have been very proud of Wendy and I for all the love, willingness and sense of adventure we had for each …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Nice hotel but work was being done during the day in the Towers where we were staying so it was loud. The rooms were spacious and clean and the bathrooms were beautiful.

We loved this hotel
We stayed in Ho Chi Minh for 4 days and our stay in this Sheraton was excelllent. We stay 100 nights a year away and Sheraton and Asia seems an excellent combination.
The rooms were wonderful, the service exceptionally attentive, the pick up from Airport was excellent (even meeting you before security/customs and taking you through separate queues)
We were upgraded to a wonderful suite and I have to say the attentiveness to detail was wonderful
If I ever stay in Ho Chi Minh again, this will always be my first choice
Having stayed at way too many non-budget hotels around the world, especially Sheratons, this was a solid and very fairly priced choice.
First Class In Vietnam
The Sheraton Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City is a very nice place to stay! It is very clean and the room we had, was big and we had clean and convenient bathroom. Our view was just amazing! If you have a nice room, you can see the French town hall and the reunifiaction-palace as well. On the 23th level there is a cool bar, where you can dance too. Forget the pool, use the spa treatments for relaxing.
The food is superb! The Chinese restaurant "LI BAI" is one of the best Chinese restaurants, which I have ever tasted (even in China)!
All in all is it a good hotel, clearly the number one in Saigon. In my opinion far better than the Caravelle. But watch out for Park Hyatt!
Try it but don't expect a top notch hotel.
On one level, a typical, modern, five star Asian hotel, lots of marble floors and chandeliers. But an excellent example of how such a hotel should be.
Stayed at this hotel for over a week in March and loved it. The rooms were very spacious and the shower was particularly nice with the dual-stream water jets. The breakfast buffet was very good, lots of variety with everything from Pho, to curry to omelets and Japanese soba noodles. Unless you recieve the breakfast as part of a package however, I would not recommend paying for this breakfast as there are so many wonderful places to eat nearby. The next great thing about this hotel is it's central location. You are within wandering distance to all the nearby eateries and shopping. I would recommend going to the "night market" or wandering up the street at night to the park where families congregate to enjoy the evenings. For internet needs there is an internet cafe directly across the street from the hotel, the owners are nice and you will only pay a fraction of what you would pay in the hotel's business center.
Nice hotel with Saigon river's view
It's a beautiful hotel. Very friendly staffs. Foods & services are expensive inside the hotel. With a few steps outside, one can get anything for much cheaper price. Level-23 is a hot club with live Western music every night. Nice live local music band playing at the lobby about 6 PM. I'm a SPG member & would recommend anyone with a reasonable budget staying at this hotel.
uWe visited this hotel as part of our honeymoon and were very pleased with the standard.
This is the first Sheraton that I have truly enjoyed my stay at. The staff was much more polite than I've encountered at any of the other Sheraton hotels, and the vietnamese people in general are incredibly friendly. There is live music every evening in the lobby, and the 23rd floor features a glass-walled lounge with a spectacular view of Saigon proper and the Saigon River. The room, as always, was nice, and despite their astronomical laundering fees, I managed to receive everything back the way I requested it (This is somewhat of a feat to me, as I've never had my clothes properly laundered at any other Sheraton). The appetizers that I tried were very tastey, but the hotel is surrounded by so many lovely, cheap restaurants with GREAT food that I would suggest getting out and about. Saigon is the most pleasant city I've ever visited. My only caution is to watch out for all the scooters, motorcycles and mopeds that clog the streets. As one of the locals that I met told me, "Don't run, don't stop and don't look back. Just walk slowly and pray."
Best hotel in Saigon
I am a frequent traveler, for business and pleasure, to Vietnam. I also travel frequently in the US and in Europe and stay in many fine hotels. The Sheraton Saigon is an excellent hotel. The hotel is a new high rise (backing onto to older Caravelle) with state-of-the-art facilities, a beautiful pool, health club and tennis court and extremely nice rooms and suites with great views of the city and the river. The hotel is in the best location in Saigon. I do not consider staying in any other hotel when in Saigon, and I refer all of my friends and colleagues to this hotel.

North American standards, excellent room design, outstanding service.
Well worth the price and would definitely return.
Five Star Rating on all aspects of the hotel.
