“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed September 2, 2010

First time in vietnam and in HCMC, I stayed a couple of days in the Lgend. this hotel is very well kept, lobby is elegant, a fusion of "Old Europe" and Asia, rooms are spacious and clean, with a nice, elegantly minimalist set-up, and first class amenities. Hotel staff is working discretely and efficiently and is very hospitable.
Restaurants are varied but well above average, with an interesting wine list and french touch on the pastries.
didn't have time to check Gym and swimming pool or spa services, so no opinion here.
View from the room was not so good, as there are a lot of building in construction nearby, but it was not an important criteria for me for this trip.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 week at the top floor in an executive room. This was my 25th visit to HCM but the first time in this hotel.

The location is really good, just a few minutes walk from the downtown centre. Use the exit beside the pool.
The rooms are not too modern but they offer a lot of comfort. They are very clean the staff is very friendly.

The pool outside is very nice and they offer a good service while staying at the pool.

Don’t expect too much from the gym and sauna. For this kind of hotel it is beneath the standard but if you want to, you can do some exercises.

The restaurant is great. Breakfast was crowded but good. They offer lots of choices at both the breakfast and the dinner buffet. In the weekend there are a lot of locals who visit the restaurant for dinner.

Selected the hotel as it was within easy walking distance to a number of tourist attractions.
Fair priced restaurants for all tastes are a short 5 min walk away as are a number of Western style shopping malls with well patronised food courts popular with the Vietnamese. Good shopping nearby at Saigon Court ( fixed priced markets)
A large and very filling buffet breakfast was included in the room rate covering all tastes.
Check in /check out handled quickly & professionally all the staff we encountered were very friendly and spoke good english.
Two 750 ml bottles of bottled water are provided free each day per room but found that with the heat and humidity we had to buy more from local shops
However found out later that if you used the gym you could refill you water bottles from the large water cooler installed there.
Free fruit was available daily on our floor just outside the elevators, mainly consisting of apples
The only minor criticism was despite booking a non smoking room ( which we received ) that other guests on the same floor we obviously smokers and the airconditioning in our room sucked in some of that smoke.
Free wireless internet in the room was easy to access and fast

We have travelled extensivly and this hotel was amongst the best value for monay that we have stayed in. The location may be a bit off centre however there is a back entrance that you can use to walk to the city centre in a no time at all. It is a tranqil oasis in a hectic city, staff very friendly and helpful. There is a free shuttle service to main attractions, however taxi's are so cheap that the location was not a problem. The buffet was amazing and catered for everyone with beer and wine included, one of the best buffets we have ever seen. There are lots of small restaraunts nearby, however we were not aware that there were so many until our last day. Thank you Legend Hotel for making our stay very enjpyable.

This was the first hotel we encountered on our honeymoon to Vietnam and in all honesty probably our favourite hotel in the whole trip. We booked the Honeymoon package and service was absolutely first class. We could not fault the staff, the room, the view or the location at all. We also booked a tour through the hotel and had a great time with our guide and driver.

The buffet dinner featured the most spectacular food and long after our holiday we have remembered just how good the food was - being able to pick your own meat / seafood and having it bbq'd right in front of you. The sashimi was the best we have ever tasted. We found out afterwards that the buffet dinner was actually quite well known around Vietnam as the best buffet dinner in Ho Chi Minh!!

Unfortunately the pool wasnt operational when we were there but there was so much else to do in Saigon that we didnt have time to lay around anyway. The location is really close to everything. If we go back - The Legend is on our must stay places!! We cant wait to go there again!!

We treated ourselves to 2 nights at the Legend in an Executive room and weren’t disappointed. Excellent check in service and generally treated like royalty wherever we went. The breakfast was absolutely amazing – I can’t think of anything you couldn’t get.

The bed was truly the most comfortable bed I’ve ever used but unfortunately we still didn’t sleep well – the temperature of the aircon in the room doesn’t seem to alter much whichever number you choose and the duvet on the bed is quite heavy and hot, so basically – we cooked! I asked that for the second night, they could remove the duvet and just put on a top sheet but they took no heed so we had a second hot and sweaty night. Apart from this, we honestly couldn’t fault the place. I’m surprised to read on my return other reviews for the Legend who say that the hotel is dated. This I can’t understand as everywhere we went within the hotel was new, modern and contemporary.
