Historical Traveller Reviews of Sofitel Plaza Saigon Hotel
Nice 5-star hotel, but lacks a local flavour.from Wombatkev
We were on the 9th floor on the city side of the hotel, so had great views. Our room was modern, spacious, very clean and comfy with a nice big bathroom. Although the style of the decor did seem a bit dated, and there wasn't much 'character' about the place.
The pool is great with excellent views across the city. Staff seemed very friendly and always greeted us warmly (although check-in was quite slow - they seemed to be struggling to find our reservation for a while!).
Yes, the hotel is away from the downtown area, but there is a free shuttle to the market and taxis are so cheap it doesn't really matter. Also the fact that most of the guests are business travllers means the hotel itself is nice and quiet (the pool never seemed to be busy).
Overall a solid, pleasant stay - we would definitely return.
Excelent Hotel for business or leisurefrom geologist74
A solid choicefrom terravisum
At check-in, we were referred to the Club Lounge check-in on the 16? floor. We were offered drinks immediately upon entering the lounge while the check-in process was being made. 5 minutes later, we were given key card to our rooms. The room was bright and the furnishing was modern. The bed was comfortable and the down pillows was plush. The room was not huge but space design has made it very comfortable to move around. I would say it is the same size as the Renaissance that we stayed later on but much better in terms of space usage.
The walk-in bathroom is nice with all the usual amenities. One of the nicer bathroom that I have used in hotels. It rated favorably to the Sheraton and Hyatt just a bit behind in terms of amenities.
As we checked in a bit early, the welcome fruit plate was not in the room, however 10 minutes later we had the fruit plate delivered with flowers for both the bathroom and table delivered. The service was friendly and my mom rated it over the Sheraton, Hyatt and Renaissance. I would have rated the Sofitel service on par or just a tiny bit lower than the Sheraton but definitively above the Renaissance.
The best thing about the Sofitel aside from its lounge is the pool on top. Very nice pool with a very nice view of the city.
This hotel has good prepaid rates so that bumps its value up above the Renaissance. A good choice!!!!!

Fantastic hotelfrom Lilywhitejude
Don't be put off by the fact the hotel is supposedly in the business district of town. It's literally about a 5 minute walk or alternatively taxis are so incredibly cheap it would be easy to catch a cab across town. There's also a shuttle bus throughout the day to the main market.
Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel and would love to stay there again.
Needs to up its game in the face of competitionfrom MatthewRob
The rooms are spacious, but average and could use a bit of TLC. It seems that the Sofitel used to be the premier hotel by far in Saigon and became complacent. Consequently new hotels have caught up and the Sofitel is coming under pressure but has yet to react.
The hotel is a 10min walk from the Diamond Dept Store and Reunification Palace, but not much else nearby. Taxis in Saigon are pretty cheap though.
In summary, nice, but not much more than average with little character. Better suited for the business traveller.
At Home in the Plazafrom Peter Street
The best hotel in Saigon!from Fingolfin
My staying in Sofitel was perfect from the first to the last day: warm and helping staff, very nice hotel and room design. 2 thumbs up!!
Top Local Tips for Ho Chi Minh
War Remnants Museum The War Remnats Museum is not the "best attraction" in the city as some guidebooks infer and could be easily bypassed if you are short of time.
Day Trip to Cao Dao Temple and Cu Chi Tunnel. Interesting day trip for seeing the unque temple which combine different religions.The educational trip for children about the Vietnam War and how the Viet Cong survive by building under ground tunnels and the cruelty of war.
