An ideal and indulgent base for exploring the vibrant Vietnamese city at InterContinental Saigon Hotel & Residences.
FOR GUESTS LOOKING TO STAY in luxury at the heart of Ho Chi Minh City’s rich cultural hub, District One, there’s no better choice than InterContinental Saigon Hotel & Residences. Found inside mPlaza Saigon, the hotel is just 25 minutes from Tan Son Nhat International Airport and provides an ideal and indulgent base for exploring the vibrant Vietnamese city.
Business travellers arriving in the city will love InterContinental Saigon’s easy connectivity to a number of corporate headquarters, foreign consulates, and commercial buildings. But — as we all know — work must be balanced by play, and missing out on Ho Chi Minh City’s fine dining, craft beer scene and exciting nightlife is out of the question.
Urbane and Cultured
The InterContinental Saigon is perfectly positioned for cultural discovery of the city, with the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral and popular Nguyen Hue Walking Street just steps away. Turn a few more corners and find the Saigon Opera House, Reunification Palace and — a true reader’s paradise and InterContinental Saigon recommendation — Nguyen Van Binh Book Street.
The 100-meter street is lined with artfully designed bookshops specializing in every niche imaginable. Consider it a one-stop destination for all things literary. Book Street has also become a hub where writers and artists congregate, share new works, and socialise in the area’s stylish cafes, bars, and bistros.
A Suite of Rooms
InterContinental Saigon Hotel has 305 spacious and inviting guest rooms and suites. Each share a restrained yet refined aesthetic, with finishes in velvety natural tones and textures that encourage maximum cosiness.
From the classic room to the finest suite, each choice features floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the spaces in golden afternoon light. Guests gazing through the glass can glimpse dramatic, wide-angle views of a skyline that blends French colonial architecture with glistening skyscrapers.
Along with the chic design and glorious views, suites at the InterContinental Saigon Hotel include a living room, bedroom, and oversized bathroom with an indulgent tub. Suite guests also have a standing — and complimentary — invitation to breakfast, afternoon tea, and evening cocktails at the InterContinental Saigon’s club lounge.
For those staying longer in the city, the InterContinental Saigon Residences offer 260 apartments with one, two, or three-bed layouts.
Designed for business travellers, the stylish pieds-à-terres have everything modern professionals need to work, rest and entertain. The residences also provide a 24-hour gym, swimming pool, and professional trainers on hand to help you stay fit.
The quality of the cocktails and cuisine at the InterContinental Saigon is unmatched. With three signature restaurants, guests will have difficulty deciding between the expansive buffets at Market 39, expertly prepared all-you-can-eat dim sum at Yu Chu, and the Italian flavours of Basilico.
For aperitifs, nightcaps and everything in between, The Library specialises in ingenious cocktails, fine wines and beers, and artisan coffees.
Spa InterContinental is where it’s at for anyone who takes their relaxing seriously. Spa clients are rejuvenated after spending a few hours indulging in a wide selection of treatments, therapies, and massages administered by experts.
Across the hall from the spa is the hotel’s gym. Featuring 100 square metres of workout equipment, InterContinental Saigon is the first five-star hotel to provide electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) training alongside the latest cardiovascular equipment, free weights, and machines.
