Pullman’s expansion in Vietnam, with its resort on Bac My An's idyllic beaches and its two addresses in the country’s business hubs of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, reflects the brand’s 'Work & Play' spirit that reconciles business and pleasure.
A strategic location in Vietnam’s economic heart
The Pullman Saigon Centre boasts a strategic location in the heart of District 1, close to Ben Thanh Market and the major tourist attractions with stunning views of the city. Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon, is located east of the Mekong Delta in southern part of Vietnam. It is Vietnam’s largest city and economic hub, known for its vibrant cultural scene and business activity.
The 306-room Pullman Saigon Centre features a contemporary design, a wide range of technological facilities, four bars and restaurants and five meeting venues. Like the brand’s two other properties in the country, it redefines the standards of international upscale hotels in Vietnam.
