Info : Majestic
The Hotel Majestic is a grand, historic hotel situated in an excellent location in Ho Chi Minh City. It is steps away from many of the cities main attractions, overlooking the Saigon River.
This quaint and charming hotel was designed in a French style and was initially established in 1925. It was renovated and upgraded in 1995 to feature 122 rooms as well as new facilities like swimming pool, gym, sauna and spa. Tastefully refurbished, the rooms still retain a colonial feel with polished teak wood floors and elegant, comfortable soft furnishings. Half of the rooms overlook the serene pool area and the others overlook the Saigon River.
The hotel boasts an excellent outdoor bar called Breeze Sky Bar. The bar has panoramic views of the city and the river and has an open air, decked area, a great place to relax with a cocktail in hand!
With colonial rooms starting from as little as Å70 per room per night, this hotel represents great value for its location and standard.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
We spent a lot of time with the local people on our tours and learnt so much about the country. We didn't feel like we were intruding and were advised how best to deal with each situation so as to fit in with local custom.
