ISO Photos of the President Hotel in Saigon


Fay Torresyap, a photo researcher for French magazine GEO   is working on an article about a hotel in Saigon, which, she says, which was “built in the 1960s for the American army, ” and “known as the ‘President Hotel’  at 727 Tran Hung Dao near Cholon district.”

The hotel, she says, “was at least 12 floors tall with a dancing hall and a swimming pool on the roof.  Our understanding is that this building was used by the Military Assistance Command Vietnam and perhaps also the Post Engineer’s Compound #1.”

The magazine is looking for photos of the building “inside and out, showing its life and history during the Vietnam War period.” If you have one you’d like to share, call  212-463-8711 or email
