Bottom Line

Centrally located in Ho Chi Minh City's District 1 and within walking distance of most top sites -- Ben Thanh Market is just seven minutes away -- this three-pearl hotel offers clean and elegant rooms accompanied by a solid choice of amenities. The on-site restaurant serves breakfast (included in rates), lunch, and dinner, and there's a lovely rooftop pool with a sundeck. The fitness room is tiny and not well equipped, but guests have access to a sauna and steam room, as well as a spa and beauty salon. The 56 guest rooms come with flat-screen TVs, minibars, tea/coffee facilities, and free Wi-Fi -- but some lack windows. For larger and more charming rooms, check out Hotel Continental, housed in a 19th century colonial building.

Scene

Three-pearl hotel with pleasant interiors

Stepping into the lobby of the Alagon Saigon Hotel & Spa from the busy street outside, guests are met with a pleasant space clad in white. White tile floors and marble effect white walls are paired with white leather couches for a clean and calming effect. Though some of the details verge on gaudy, like the crystal chandeliers, it's an inviting space. Past the lobby, the hotel's restaurant features white furniture with gold embellishments and navy velvet upholstery on chairs. Further in, these are traded for wooden tables and chairs with lime green accents. Overall, it's a pleasant property that offers a solid set of mid-range features, attracting both tourists and business travelers drawn by the convenient central location. The property is part of a local hotel group, and guests should note that some of the facilities are shared.
