Fodor's Review

Renovations in 2014 have freshed up this iconic hotel, which opened to the public on Christmas Eve 1959 and has entertained VIPs from around the globe throughout its storied history. When Saigon was the capital of South Vietnam in the 1960s, the Caravelle was filled with embassy staff and journalists, many of whom would gather at the hotel's famed Saigon Saigon Bar to share information and rumors. Today the Caravelle's original 10-story building has been joined by a newer 24-story building.
