The Continental is an historic building and makes a great base in Saigon. It doesn't offer 5 Star luxury but it is charming, comfortable, right in the centre and a delightful place to hang out for a few days. Pluses: great location; old world feel; very pleasant staff in general; breakfast pretty good (although bread/pastries disappointing); very large rooms and ensuites; pleasant having a drink at the street-side tables outside the hotel. Drawbacks: somewhat worn at the edges - 4 star not 5; the lift is very slow so take the stairs if you are in a hurry; disappointingly the rather characterless restaurant only serves western cuisine although you can order a few Asian dishes via room service; no bar as such. Concierge/room service generally very helpful (although command of English can be limited at times) and happy to bring you an iron/ironing board etc. Note that the room has a handy 4 x multiplug in the wardrobe. Free wifi which was acceptable for email etc. Small gym has a few cardio machines and multi-weight stations. I was attending a conference at the Park Hyatt (next door) - whilst the (new) Hyatt was very smart the Continental was about a third of the price and evoked the charm of an earlier era.
