Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Majestic

1 Dong Khoi St., Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

On the waterfront overlooking the Saigon River, this is one of Vietnam's truly great colonial hotels, steeped with nostalgia and old-world charm that has been accumulating since 1925. Rooms, with their high ceilings, art deco touches, and marble bathrooms, strike a delicate balance between airy and intimate, while the pool offers a great vantage point to lie back and soak in the tropical colonial vibe. Be sure to sip a drink at the rooftop bar at night when the city lights sparkle below.

PROS

  • great central location

CONS

  • the fact that the government owns this hotel does occasionally peek through the usually professional service standards
