Opened in 1925 as the city’s finest hotel, the Majestic has gone through several incarnations over the years, changes that reflect the tumultuous history of Vietnam. During World War II, the Japanese Imperial Army used this French-Colonial structure as a military barracks. During the Vietnam War, it was frequented by foreign correspondents and espionage agents. Today, it remains a hotel of tradition, hospitality, and elegance. Hotel Majestic is located within walking distance of the beautiful Opera House, Reunification Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral, Ben Thanh Markets, reflexology boutiques and other related therapy boutiques, as well as most major commercial office buildings.
