Caravelle Hotel

19 Lam Son Sq.
Ho Chi Minh City , Vietnam
84 8 3823-4999

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2008, this slightly corporate feeling but exceedingly comfortable hotel on Lam Son Square is the runner-up to the Park Hyatt for the title of the city’s top hotel. And it certainly has history: among many other foreign correspondents, Walter Cronkite stayed here before delivering his famous “stalemate” broadcast in 1968. Now a favorite of tour groups and conventioneers, with an appropriately bustling lobby, the hotel is especially known for its ninth-floor bar, Saigon, Saigon. Its 175 guest rooms feature clean lines, the latest mod-cons, and city and Saigon River views.

Room to Book: Request a higher floor room (15th or above) to minimize clamor from the street.
