“This hotel has been an institution since its inception in 1901. There is no place like it for old world charm, glamour and gossip! An oasis of cool and calm in this bustling city, the large central courtyard holds a pool and leafy gardens. Rooms are split between the French colonial Historical Wing and the neoclassical Opera Wing. For the authentic experience we would suggest you go for the Luxury Rooms and Grand Luxury Rooms in the Historic Wing, with high ceilings and original features. The many restaurants and bars will not fail to please with everything from classic French to contemporary Vietnamese fusion. Start your evening with a poolside cocktail at the The Bamboo Bar, this is a place to see and be seen so dress to impress!”
"It captures old-world colonial charm."
