Hotel Majestic- A journey through time.


Built in 1925, the Hotel Majestic is no doubt an iconic image of Saigon.  It is located at number 1 Dong Khoi St, formerly rue Catinat.  After 1975 it was renamed Mekong Hotel (Khách Sạn Cửu Long) and became a Government guest house. Having changed its name back again it is now owned by the state-owned Saigon Tourist.  I believe a 1.9 trillion VND expansion was announced mid last year to construct two towers of 24 and 27 storeys within 3 years.  I guess I will have to add another picture then of her ever changing face.
