5-star hotel with great bar and casino
In September I spent 4 nights at the Caravelle in Ho Chi Minh City. I was there for work but also stayed the weekend before, so was looking for a hotel that was a good mix of business and pleasure.
The Caravelle really fit the bill with everything you need of a business hotel plus a 24-hour casino and a couple bars to relax in. My favorite was the rooftop bar and there was even a live band a couple nights.
I stayed in a deluxe room which was really spacious with a nice view of the city all lit up at night. There was a good selection of English channels and even some movies plus a comfy chair to stretch out in. WiFi is included in the room rate (no extra charges for that). I got a good discount because I was staying 4 nights.
The location is good too right next to the opera house. You can walk around the neighborhood or taxis are pretty cheap (remember to negotiate with them).
