Intercontinental Hotel Saigon Aug 05, 2011
I stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel Saigon during my trip to Vietnam.
The room looked exactly as pictured. It was really cozy and clean and nice. But the white lazy chair is not very nice to sit on. I had a backache from sitting at that position! I think it just compliment the whole modern contemporary look of the room.
The bathroom were really nice as well. You can't really see but at the right hand side of the bathroom is where the modern bathtub is located and the glass door on the left is towards the shower area. Toiletries were adequate and bathroom were really modern and clean. Free bottled water included!
This is the lawn at the swimming pool level of the hotel. So breathtakingly beautiful! To the left is the services apartment that Intercontinental offers. I believe it might be for long term rental? I'm not sure.
Anyway, the price is a little on the high side. I believe it was around USD150 per night at that time but it's so worth it.
Buffet breakfast was included in the room price. Overall, it's standard hotel breakfast. Nothing spectacular but it's alright.
And the best part is, Hard Rock Cafe is located at the ground floor of the same building. Talking about convenience!

5 Star Luxury in Great Location Mar 15, 2010
We recently spent a couple nights at one of Saigon's newest luxury hotels, located right in the heart of District 1 and most of the important tourist attractions.
As one would expect from a 5 star hotel - the service, staff, food, room, and amenities were top notch. The pool is not a high rooftop like many of the others in town, but certainly nice with a view of the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Recommend paying the $30 extra a night if you can for the club access. Includes breakfast, canapes, cocktail hour, refreshments throughout the day, etc. The club level entitles you to higher floor rooms (obviously with better views) and free Internet (which was pretty pricey otherwise).
The room price was actually significantly less than some of the more known hotels in the area and even less than our usual pick - the Sofitel.
The hotel gym is state of the art with weight stations and more machines than I have seen in some regular gyms!
The hotel restaurants are good - we ate at the main Market 39 one for about $25 pp for the lunch buffet, which included local foods, sushi, fresh oysters, grilling stations, and a dessert selection that was my downfall.
There is also a Chinese restaurant on site with pretty good dim sum offerings, and a brunch on the weekend. For $10 more, unlimited wine, beer, and sodas are served.
Room service menus pull from the main restaurant menus and I did not notice a significant price jump like many hotels do.
The concierge is helpful and can arrange a variety of group or private tours, along with restaurant recommendations.
There is a lot of shopping options near by, along with major tourist attractions like the Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Reunification Palace, City Hall, The Opera House, War Remnants Museum, etc. This is key to getting an early start before the heat of the day does you in (some museums open at 7:30 am and since they seem to be lacking in ac, I recommend getting there at opening time).
