Le Méridien Saigon

Creative, curious and calculating minds alike find their way to Le Méridien Saigon, a new addition to HCMC’s 5-star-studded cityscape. The river flows nearby, and plays a big part in the hotel’s design and cultural outlook.

Sophisticated, somewhat artsy, and tech-friendly, this 350-room new Starwood property is geared towards travellers with a penchant for new places, new tastes and new cultures, be it for inspiration, business or leisure.

Opened in 2015, Le Méridien’s initial slow start has catapulted into an often fully-booked roster of international businessmen, artists and explorers. If you’re into hi-tech trendy-luxury accommodations with a cultural twist, keep reading.

Rooms & Amenities

We viewed the Club Classic (63 available in the hotel) room during our assessment of Le Méridien Saigon. It’s roomy, comfy, outfitted with HDMI, A/V plugs, VGA ports and other plugs for your devices, a 42-inch smart LED TV, stereo system and Wi-Fi.

The workstation is well integrated into the room and provides decent space to work on your laptop, with easily accessible plugs.

The wavy patterns you see around the hotel make their way into the rooms here, either via floor patterns, wall art, or both. Representing the strength of the flowing Saigon River, Le Méridien wants to make its cultural integration a strong point in its message to guests. In the room you’ll find a Discovery Envelope with more information on how and where to explore Saigon.

Room at Le Meridien Saigon

The defining feature in the room was the bed. Le Méridien custom-makes all their beds, with rigorous sleep tests done to ensure quality. The mattress is specially designed not to disturb one partner when the other moves. Great if you’re rooming with a troubled sleeper. The Club Classic we visited had a separate bathtub, chic ergonomic-type sofa and decent views of the river.


On the first floor you have Latitude 10, a transitory dining space that’s coffeehouse by day and cocktail lounge by night. Aromas of Illy Coffee waft around the plush seating and a modern, soft-lit design that’s quite suitable for Macbook work in the first half of the day. A sparkling wine menu and sake bar provide fuel for nighttime escapades.

Higher up there’s Bamboo Chic, Le Méridien Saigon’s wood-accented flagship restaurant. Bamboo Chic goes the route of clean, gorgeously presented Chinese-Japanese fusion dishes. The restaurant opens its doors only in the evening, looking all the better for this: the glow from the indoor LEDs and Saigon’s skyline play well with the overall ambiance. Panoramic views of District 1 and beyond are a nice touch, along with a wine cellar and sake cocktail bar.

Latest Recipe restaurant at Le Meridien Saigon


Le Méridien Saigon’s facilities keep in line with the style of the hotel, employing Vietnamese and International artists to create attractive contemporary environments that reflect the country. It’s nice to see a hotel incorporate the culture outside its walls, in one way or another, rather that sticking to a blatantly European approach to simulate luxury. This is especially true for Le Méridien Hub, a reimagining of the traditional lobby scene into a more contemporary and creative space.

Lobby at Le Meridien Saigon

The Le Méridien Club Lounge on the top floor gives Club Room and Suite guests access to a panoramic working and leisure space with business amenities and complimentary refreshments.

On a single floor you have Explore Spa, the saltwater-based pool and the well-equipped Fitness Centre. The indoor pool and gym overlook the Saigon River, and the spa includes a range of expert services ranging from aromatherapy massages to seawater facials.
