Frances and Rosie are here to help give you the inside track.

The original building retains some of its old charm, with wooden floors and high ceilings, while a new wing was added in 2003. Facilities include a swimming pool in the inner courtyard area, a gym, and a spa offering massages, sauna and steambath. There is also a beauty salon, a tailor's shop and a helpful concierge service. Dining options include a café on the ground floor, a restaurant serving good Vietnamese and international cuisine, a pool bar, and 24-hour room service. The rooftop Breeze Sky Bar has great views over the river and the city.

Why we love it

Hotel Des Arts Saigon

Hotel Des Arts is a 5-star boutique hotel that invites guests to take a journey back in time to French colonial Vietnam. The building is a modern work of art itself and, true to its name, the inside is just as much an art gallery as it is a hotel since the walls are lined with the owner’s personal collections.
