Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Combining the classical charm of French Indochina with a sense of timeless chic, this city centre hotel provides a stylish and unique retreat, just moments away from the Notre Dame Cathedral. As the name might suggest, the hotel is as much an art gallery as a 5-star boutique hotel with walls adorned with artwork from the owners own personal collection.
The rooms are elegantly designed in a neutral palette, the floor to ceiling windows affording spectacular city views. Even better are the views from the famous rooftop pool bar, the city's highest. The pool is reserved for in-house guests only, however the bar is a popular hangout in the evenings, open to all. The hotel’s Saigon Kitchen Restaurant, inspired by an Asian Street Food Market, serves delicious Vietnamese cuisine and afternoon tea is popular in the sophisticated Café des Beaux-Arts, accompanied by the grand piano.
