My wife and I returned to this hotel after staying several days in March this year. We arrived tired after a long overnight flight and were delighted to find our room was ready and the staff allowed us to use it from our arrival time at10am. This makes a huge difference when you need to sleep.
We were allocated a 10th floor room overlooking the river and were very happy with it throughout our 6 day stay. Wi-fi is free as for most hotels in Vietnam these days.
The staff are brilliant, especially on reception where they were cheerful and helpful, without exception.
Breakfast is excellent and a good variety of Western and Asian choices are available. The only other venue we ate at was the lobby bar, where the food is very good though quite pricy. We tried a room service meal but it was only average.
We like the location. There are plenty of very good local places to eat at and to enjoy a great massage. We would recommend Bernies, just a few hundred metres up the street at the rear of the hotel – best hamburgers we’ve ever had. For a massage try Yuan or Yume on Le Thanh Ton Street, just a 5 minute walk from the hotel, also Miss My’s on Thi Sach Street near Le Thanh Street.
We are regular visitors to Vietnam, we used to stay at the Majestic but prefer the Legend and we look forward to returning again early in 2013.
