Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   One of the best and historical buildings in Hanoi. Very friendly staffs full of smiles. Take a short time to see the lobby at both sides, and have a moment to carefully see the old photos. Read the famous persons who have stayed in the Legendary Hotel. The room was comfort, clean, and the hotel provides free bottled water more than two.

Review:   Awesome hotel with excellent service and great food! We arrived really early on the train and needed to get some breakfast - the staff were super accommodating and held all our luggage while we had the breakfast buffet, which was excellent. Great coffee, and a lovely outdoor eating area surrounded by greenery and enclosed by the gorgeous architecture of this charming colonial building.

Review:   Very plush and posh hotel. Food here is delicious and has high standards. No need for reservations if it's not busy. Free wifi available too. Location is great for wandering around the old quarter of Hanoi. A must stay or visit for tourists. Near by is the lake and park and be sure to see these at night when locals and lights turn it all so lively. Such a charming city!
