Striking, modern, 5 star hotel tower complex, directly oppostite the French Consolate and nearby the site of the historic former US Embassy - now the Consulate.. It's well located with modern interiors, spacious rooms and excellent facilities. Intercontinental Saigon Residences offer luxury serviced apartments in the same complex.

Review

The Intercontinental Asiana may be as close as Saigon gets to a modern design luxury hotel. Among the newest of the city's deluxe properties, it still feels fresh too.

Rooms offer plenty of space and natural light with decor in warm colors. While there's no avoiding some of the "corporate" hotel character, this is definitely a place you can relax in too.

The 20 metre pool is perfect for laps though the pool area itself is less inviting. The gym and spa are well set up as you'd expect.

If you're staying longer or prefer or more homely feel, Intercontinental Saigon Residences offer luxury serviced apartments in a different wing in the same complex.

Staff are trained to Intercon standards so things work - but they still seem able to show some natural Vietnamese friendliness as well.


Brief
Spa, 20 metre pool, wifi / internet.
