“The plushest hotel in Saigon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

I stayed at the Legend for for four days and was throughly impressed. Everything about it, with one small exception, was five star plus. The breakfast was a sprawling array of local and traditional foods. It was actually more of a brunch spread then a traditional breakfast because here was always a selection of curries, stews, and other brunch style items on the serving tables.
One of the hotel’s best features is the free wifi throughout the hotel and pool area. There is no signing in or logging on to use it. The other five star hotels charge you an additional fee to use wifi after having gouged you on the cost of the room. I am glad to see that the Lotte Legend does not do this.
Other great features of the hotel are a huge pool which is just the right temperature, Japanese Star Trek style toilets with a control panel giving you a heated seat and warm water streams, a beautiful river view from my room, and unending service from the staff.
I have stayed at all the other five star hotels in Saigon and can say with authority that the Legend is finer than any of them at less then one half the cost.
The only drawback to the Legend compared to the Sheraton or Hyatt is that it is about a 8 minute walk down a side street to the center of everything i.e. the Opera House. The other hotels I mentioned are right there on the main street but they cost at least twice as much as the Legend and are not as nice.
I would highly recommend the Legend over any of the other hotels in Saigon.

we stayed at the legend hotel for four nights and in my thirty years of travelling this is my favourite hotel hands down. The staff here we're wonderful, friendly, helpful and good English, a bonus to compliment my complete lack of Vietnamese. The room is spotlessly clean and tidy, the reception staff exceptional and the breakfast staff made breakfast a most enjoyable experience, the food was good but the staff were more so. A highlight for us was our evening chats with Jacky in the pool bar, for an understanding of life as a young Vietnamese nothing can compare to a few quiet beers at the pool bar and a chat with Jacky, be quick though as his English skills and performance may demand a promotional position within the company.
Our stay at the Legend was fantastic, because the staff are fantastic, while the hotel is full of charm, it's staff are charming.

Room Tip: ask for a high room, vie over the city is great and sunset is cool.

I spent a night there in Lotte Legend hotel.

The room and facilities were nice. There were apple in front of elevator for each floors. I thought that was quite nice. The bed and blanket was soft and I had terrific sleep. However, in my room, the wifi signal wasn't that strong but it was ok for me to play and finish my jobs.

The food for breakfast was great. There were many kinds of food. bread, Pho and other good stuff that worth a 5-star hotel.

Did I mention that the room with the river view was great and it is very close to the city central, maybe not as close as other hotels but it is close enough.

Overall, a nice stay and definitely would love to come back again.

Room Tip: Room number xx15 and more will get a river view. Room xx01-xx14 will probably get a city view.

I am currently at the hotel with my adult son. I can't really add much that hasn't already been said. Beautiful hotel, great location, outstanding service.

Just one thing that nobody seems to mention. A very cool (actually it's warm) toilet with heated seat and electric bidet with settings for both men and woman.

I would love that heated seat back in Canada during the winter months!

We were extremely impressed with this hotel. We arranged to be picked up in the hotel car from the airport and from that moment it was smooth sailing. We stayed here for 4 nights and would definitely stay there again. The food was amazing, the buffet dinner was delicious with free flowing beer & wine and a massive selection of western & asian food. We had a great view from the room of the river and it was in close walking distance of just about everywhere we wanted to go.

Well located on the river, Lotte provided excellent service, a bright clean room with excellent amenities. The shower was particularly outstanding. Amazing water pressure! They have a shuttle that takes you to the sites and picks you up again. Just remember to book it in advance. We didn't and without hesitation they offered to take us to the market in the hotels private car. Good service.
