Park Hyatt Saigon, Luxury Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City

Monica Tindall

Ask a local what is the best hotel in Ho Chi Minh City and without hesitation, Park Hyatt Saigon is at the top of the list. The sophisticated French colonial-style property offers elegance in design and modernity in comforts. Located in the heart of District 1, next to the Opera House and major shopping and lifestyle streets, the hotel is an icon in the city.

Maintaining old-world charm by no means signifies a walk back in time. Benefitting from recent refurbishments, the Park Hyatt Saigon is in tip-top form matching classical refinement to contemporary travellers.

Tasteful heritage rooms combine graceful interior design with the latest in technology. Upholstered headboards with wooden trimming frame the king-size bed covered in white. Tall windows shaded by white shutters overlook the central courtyard and floral-print carpet overlays polished wooden floorboards. Vietnamese artworks are thoughtfully placed giving the feeling of a home rather than a hotel room.

Individually controlled air-conditioning and a ceiling fan are much appreciated (I’ve spent too many hours chilled to the bone in hotel rooms with central air-con). Quality sound system, TV, espresso machine and mini I-pad further increase the comfort level along with lush bath products and a daily fruit basket. The bathroom makes good use of a compact space and does well to include both a rain shower and separate bathtub. Anything else I need is at the touch of a button and each time I make a special request someone has attended to my room within minutes.

While the location couldn’t better (minutes’ walking distance from tourist sites, entertainment, shopping and dining) Park Hyatt Saigon has plenty to stay in for.

The third floor is literally an oasis of green. Home to the hotel’s spa, fitness room and pool, relaxation in whatever your desired form is found here. The recently renovated pool is entered via a garden of tropical trees, shrubs and flowers, with garden chairs and tables placed in the shade offering quiet sanctuary. The pool, lined with stylish white umbrellas and sun chairs is serviced by a friendly team offering drinks and poolside snacks.

Being an early riser, I’m always grateful for a fitness Centre that can be accessed 24 hours and Park Hyatt Saigon’s facilities are not only accessible 24-7 but also roundly furnished with an extensive range of cardio machines, free weights and strength equipment. Kettle balls, mats and so on ensure variety in our workouts and no excuses for not burning off the daily dose of pho and bánh mì we’ve been enthusiastically indulging in. Water, towels, fruit and headphones are all at the ready and the screens on the treadmills and other electronic trainers are fully functioning. Along with uninterrupted connection to international channels, they are also connected to the Internet and all of its features such as email and YouTube.

  1. Quintessentially Hyatt – a class above most!

  2. I am glad that the name SAIGON has been retained…………it will always be SAIGON
    to me.
    I bet it has kept a true French flavour about it.
    I shall do some Googling on this establishment.
    Thanks for the links.
    Oh by the way when you are returning to Australia……….Terrigal awaits for “OLD TIME”

    • It’s a beautiful property Colin. Many places have retained the use of Saigon and it seems to be used interchangeably by locals and visitors. The property has benefited from recent refurbishments so is looking in tip-top condition.

    This hotel is so classic and elegant – no wonder it’s an icon in Vietnam!

  4. So beautiful! I really love that lobby.

  5. Very classy indeed! That last photo with all that ooozzy yolks is really getting to me!

  6. I think i’ve walked past the place before, very strategic location I must say

  7. Used to go to HCMC for work quite a bit some 10 years ago, unfortunately there were no hotels of this calibre back then.

  8. I enjoyed my stay in Ho Chi Minh City a couple of years ago, but I certainly didn’t have anything like this luxury. I stayed at a small, locally run hotel which was very acceptable and the whole area was surrounded by restaurants where excellent food could be obtained at very reasonable prices.

  9. Lovely view of the swimming pool from above!

  10. Hello, this hotel does look elegant and the location sounds convenient. Great review, thanks for sharing. Have a happy day!

  11. It looks a delightful place and so elegant. I like the controlled air con. I hate freezing in a place where you are unable to control it. Having had pneumonia 3 times the Dr’s have told me to keep away from it!! Like this post. Cheers Diane

  12. Sounds really interesting! As usual great post)
