From the hotel

Opened in 1925 as the city’s finest abode, the Majestic has gone through several reincarnations over the years, changes that reflect the tumultuous history of Vietnam. Extended and renovated in 2003, the hotel has played host to such dignitaries as President Francois Mitterrand of France.

From Hanuman

Arguably the most famous of the colonial-era hotels in Saigon, the Majestic has been fully restored and again offers some of the finest accommodation in the city. Romantics with an interest in the past should choose to stay here, although when it comes to pure comfort the Park Hyatt and Sheraton are ahead.
