From the Park Hyatt to the InterContinental, Saigon boasts a neat cache of big-name, high-end stays, but if your budget requires something more modest and your taste craves something more singular, then we’ve got just the badger…
But a short taxi ride from commercial and retail centre District 1, The Alcove is housed in a mod edifice turned Indochine manse, complete with a lovely velvet sofa-lined library and terrace, plus modern all-American diner Roadhouse situated atop the hotel with view-tiful deck, jaw-bustin’ gourmet burgers and classic ‘tails.
The compact but chic rooms are elegantly appointed with minimalist cream walls, greige furnishings and dark wood fittings, plus LCD TV with 70 channels, AC, rainshower, customised bath accessories, WiFi, in-room refreshments, breakfast in bed, and a welcome drink at check-in. For surprisingly few dollars more, you can plump for top suite, the Grand Alcove, which also entails a large workspace and living room, as well as king-size bed. Grand, indeed.
