The five-star Mövenpick Hotel Saigon reappeared in Ho Chi Minh City on August 1 after a complete transformation over the past five months.


The renovation, which the hotel management said cost US$15 million, is for all guest rooms, public areas and restaurants.

“The overarching goal is to create a new benchmark in hospitality in Vietnam,” said Knuth Kiefer, general manager of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Vietnam. 


The hotel is located on Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street in Phu Nhuan District, within 10 minutes to drive to the airport.


Completely closed on March 8 this year, the Mövenpick continues to use the time to add key personnel and for staff education, with core training in hospitality essentials.


“I’m happy with our progress in attracting a great team and training them accordingly. The closure of the hotel was pivotal in the process, which will of course continue after we open on August 1,” Kiefer said.


The hotel houses 278 guestrooms and five restaurants. Kiefer said he was especially proud of the new bar on the 3rd floor that flanks the hotel’s swimming pool and spa.


In Vietnam, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts operates five-star hotels, one in Ho Chi Minh City and the other in Hanoi.


The international hotel group, with roots in Switzerland, is represented through over 90 hotels existing or under construction in 26 countries with a concentration in its core markets of Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
