My girlfriend and I booked this hotel for the first two nights in Saigon. The excellent staff, relaxing room and roof top spa helps us get over the jet lag very quickly. Good location to the major tourist attractions too.
The Norfolk Hotel is well placed in District 1 to allow easy walking to many historical sites. Although the hotel was built in the early 90's, the room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast and coffee was excellent and the staff were friendly and superb in their service
The upscale, commercial heart of the city, Dong Khoi is one of the most famous streets in the city. Along with high end boutiques and restaurants, wonderful specimens of French Colonial architecture are to be found on it. After visiting the Opera house, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Central Post Office, which was designed by Gustav Eiffel, experience Vietnamese café culture at trendy Café L'usine.
