“Worth It”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

We stayed in the river view room and what caught our attention first was the huge bed that can accommodate 4 (or 3 maybe for Westerners) people. Another good touch is the free wifi, the complimentary apple in the elevator lobby and of course, the excellent service. Breakfast is sufficient and filling. Distance to main attraction like the Saigon Opera House is just about 5 minutes walk using the hotels city entrance.

The airport pick-up is expensive but is expected that the cost goes with the hotel's standard/star.

My only concern is the hotel rate from the time I booked the hotel and the present rate which is lower but this I understand must be raised to Bookings.com. But nevertheless, I raised the issue to the front desk.

Overall, this is an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Get the river view room for a more scenic view, especially at night

Absolutely fantastic service - second to none and beautiful rooms and service. Little touches like door men for the front and complimentary apples in the lift lobby! Clean, and not too far from Ben thanh markets.

Thouroughly enjoyed the stay at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. The decor in the room was slightly old but still in very good condition and the rooms were really clean. The main lobby / bar / restaurant area is really nice. The room we had was overlooking the river which made for excellent views and was quiet and peaceful which provided an excellent way to relax after spending time in such a busy city.

This is a very glitzy hotel in a pseudo Versace way if you like that kind of thing. If you are impressed by 12ft tall statues of rearing horses, versace-style furniture etc in the foyer, you will like this place.

It wasn't our taste, but that's not their fault.

The rooms were really well maintained and very clean. Seems to be an older style hotel from the early 90's; very mainstream once you are in the room.

Bathrooms were very well lit, stacks of hot water, nice deep bath.

We only stayed one night and were leaving the next night; asked for a late check out as we weren't being picked up till 6pm but they were at capacity and couldn't help.

Instead they offered us the use of luggage storage and the bathrooms at the fitness centre to freshen up in, which was great.

Location was quite good and the doorman gave us the number of our taxi on a slip to take with us each time we caught a cab, in case of problems which was a nice touch.

The pool is a bit ordinary, and I think the whole place could be ready for a makeover to freshen it up and update it.

I would stay elsewhere next time, only because the decor was not our cup of tea, we prefer less ostentatious / more boutique hotels.

Room Tip: We had a river view room on 8th floor, well above the traffic noise.

We would definitely stay at The Legend again and recommend to our friends. The room was large, comfortable, clean, quiet and had a great view of the Saigon River. The toilet even had a heated seat! The Executive Floor was good value and we appreciated the quiet lounge area available for breakfast and sunset cocktails. The view was absolutely wonderful, the staff very helpful and the rooms comfortable and very clean. The Legend exceeded our expectations and we lacked for nothing (except for a longer cord on the hair dryer).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Saigon River. The extra charge for a room on the Executive Floor...

Really nice place to relax and enjoy good meals after busy and terrible traffic of Saigon. The staff is very helpful to give you good advice what to do in city. Room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast is offering you many choices (fresh fruits, omelets, juices and so on...)

Room Tip: Nice view to Saigon river is better than view to backyard
