In an ever changing city, The Hotel Majestic is a real step back in time to the old French colonial days of Saigon. Located on the banks of the Saigon River the hotel was opened in 1925 and boasted one of the city’s most exclusive addresses.
The hotel has under-gone several reincarnations over the years, changes that reflect the stormy history of Vietnam. The Majestic also has an incredible and somewhat chequered history. During World War II, the Japanese Imperial Army used this French colonial structure as a military barracks and during the Second Indochina War (Vietnam War) it was frequented by foreign correspondents and even the odd espionage agent. The Majestic of today, however, is a totally different affair with warm, welcoming staff and 175 lovingly renovated, airy rooms.
The open-air M Bar and Breeze Sky Bar offer unparalleled panoramic views of the city and the Saigon River and are the perfect place to unwind after a hard days sightseeing.
If you’d like to stay in a hotel that oozes history and still offers one of the best locations in the city then The Majestic is the place for you.
