Hotel Continental is known for being the first hotel in Saigon. It is a beautiful colonial building leftover from the old times. Come here to soak up some of the old world charm. This historic place is famous for where many scenes in Graham Greene’s The Quiet American is set. Greene actually lived in the hotel as he wrote the novel. Surrounded by the new Ho Chi Minh City but in a well-heeled area of town, the hotel isn’t too expensive to stay in, considering its history – from just US$90 a night. When we were there, we relaxed in their café, drinking coffees and teas for a ridiculous sum, imagining we were living in the Saigon of decades ago.

The Continental Saigon is a famous hotel that has been around since the French colonial era. The hotel has been meticulously restored to capture that time period. It's a cool place where you can easily picture Graham Greene writing his famous novel, "The Quiet American." In fact, they shot the movie version at this hotel.

The historic Continental Saigon hotel is an architectural gem, but as a hotel, it is/was terrible. I had bugs crawling on my pillow and bedspread, and with that I threw in the towel and left the hotel for the Park Hyatt Saigon.

Awesome Colonial architecture and great location. A good hotel if you want to save a little money and be in the heart of Saigon. The place hasn't been refurbished in a while, but it has huge rooms and good service. If you need a pool, you will want to stay elsewhere.
