Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)
Originally opened in 1925 the Majestic is the Grand Dame of the colonial hotels in Saigon. Overlooking the Saigon River with some of the best shopping in the city just round the corner, the Majestic's location unmatched; enjoy views of the river while eating breakfast on the 5th floor out door veranda. Seamless additions have been made to the original Majestic hotel and the rooms are generously sized, with high ceilings, many original art deco motifs and walk out balconies. Some of the plumbing feels like it might be circa 1925 however the charm and faded colonial splendour more than make up for it.
