Saigon morin

In this article we present Saigon Morin to you, formerly known as Grand Hôtel Guérin de Hué (built in 1901!) Thanks to the Morin hotel’s location in the centre, facing Huong River and Truong Tien Bridge, it was very popular.

Even Charlie Chaplin stayed here on his honeymoon! However it suffered throughout the turbulent Vietnamese history too- the building was continuously ruined by the weather and war, no renovation at all. Just after a massive renovation in 1995-7, the hotel reopened under a new name and now has 180 guest rooms and 4 restaurants. Peek in with Hanoi Voyages.


A piece of history nicely reconstructed and well-situated

Wide halls, large rooms, a spacious courtyard, wooden floors, French-style shutters
