What can you say about an amazing hotel like this? Well run, solid service, great rooms, amazing history, charming.
Wonderful hotel! Recommended to anyone who wants a classy, well run experience.
Would certainly book again and really enjoyed the experience, but here are my comments (a bit of constructive criticism for the high price tag, and for the good of the hotel):
- Hotel staff should diplomatically ask parents of (Western) teenagers jumping and screaming in central pool for 45 minutes non-stop at dusk to quiet it down just a little bit for the other guests sitting around the pool in the famous outdoor bar. We were all paying at least $300 a night for our rooms (in Vietnam) and would like to enjoy the atmosphere without being splashed and hearing screaming for 30 minutes... while trying to enjoy a romantic cocktail. Kids should be allowed to have fun, but the Metropole isn't really Disneyworld.
- The legendary breakfast is excellent, but the quality/variety of the Vietnamese food offered is below par for such a talented kitchen. The Vietnamese coffee there was not as good as in street cafes! It tasted like Western espresso with condensed milk - not proper chocolaty Vietnamese coffee. Perhaps more than pho should be on the breakfast menu -- how much can it cost compared to the imported European meets?
Thank you for such a lovely stay.
