Continental Saigon Hotel

The Continental, credited as the first hotel in Vietnam, is among the city’s most famous 19th-century architectural treasures. Like the Opera House (the former National Assembly), the City Post Office and the Notre Dame Cathedral, it sends shivers down your spine with its evocative 1880 colonial façade. It’s in room 214 that Graham Greene wrote part of The Quiet American, and the Continental features in both the book and the film.

ADD:132 – 134 Dong Khoi St., Dist 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

It also played a vital part in the Oscar-winning romance Indochine. But behind the imposing façade, the interior struggles to retain its star quality and charm and only parts of the decor are open to literary and cinematic nostalgia. As for the scandalous Continental Shelf bar, where spies, politicians and journalists alike used to casually mingle over a drink, it is now history. But take a seat in one of the front pavement tables of the Dolce Vita Cafe across the street from the Opera House, and nothing stops you from recreating times-gone-by.
