Hotel star rating:
Most of the international hotel chains can be pretty proud of the work they have done in Saigon. The city's roster of familiar names has boomed in recent times, and pretty much every one of the newcomers has lived up to expectations. The Intercon is no exception. There's no real mystery to why the hotel has proved such a hit with visitors. It has a nice, modern design that steers clear of the banality too often found in contemporary hotels that aim to please everyone and offend nobody. There's a lot to like about the rest of the hotel too. Its three restaurants are up there with the best top-end dining options in town, it has a fine selection of rooms – including 18 suites and one predictably fabulous Presidential Suite – while its central location makes it an ideal base for business visitors and tourists alike.
