Two Vietnamese hotels in Condé Nast Traveler 2018 Gold List
Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi and Park Hyatt Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City, were placed on the 2018 Gold List of the best hotels worldwide by the US travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler.
Sofitel Legend Metropole, in the heart of Ha Noi since 1901, “captures old-world colonial charm,” the magazine said. "It's a peaceful refuge in a loud city."
“Not since the Viet Nam War have the outdoor café tables immortalised in Graham Greene's The Quiet American graced historic Lam Son Square. In 2015, Park Hyatt Saigon brought al fresco dining back to the neighborhood at Opera, one of two restaurants designed by Japan’s acclaimed Super Potato at the 259-room property,” the magazine described Park Hyatt Saigon.
This was the second time Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi has been named on the Gold List. The first was in 2016.
