Yes…it’s a Novotel. A business-focussed hotel in the heart of the financial district of Saigon. So why are we featuring it? Simply because there is no denying a great hotel, regardless of its intended market, and in this instance Novotel have created a property which is convenient on a sightseeing itinerary, packed with high-end amenities and is also comfortable and stylish. All available at an excellent rate – some would say 5* facilities for a 4* price.
According to the literature, the 247 contemporary rooms have been designed with your “ergonomic comfort” in mind, with stylish decoration and packed with modern appliances. Beds are supremely comfy. There is access to the ‘In Balance‘ gymnasium, spa, sauna as well as an indoor/outdoor hotel swimming pool. ‘The Square‘ is their international buffet restaurant, serving decent Asian and Western fare from an interactive kitchen space and ‘167 Faubourg Bar‘ has an outside terrace, ideal for (business) people-watching. The extensive buffet breakfasts are exceptional.
Novotel Saigon Centre is located in the corner of Hai Ba Trung and Nguyen Dinh Chieu street, close to the airport and only a short distance from the heart of District 1 – everything is within easy reach. Some of Saigon’s best shopping and street food is on your doorstep, as are a plethora of cafes and restaurants. It is possible to walk to Dong Khoi Street – perhaps a 30 minute stroll – or you could simply jump in one of a million taxis for a £1.50 fare to anywhere of interest in the city.
