We enjoyed a very pleasant check-in process. Our names were on a board welcoming us to the hotel - we felt very special. The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite spacious and we had a view of a busy cross section of traffic. Ho Chi Minh City is well known for its traffic - organised chaos. From the hotel, we could walk to the backpackers area which was brilliant for really cheap meals and drinks. From there we could also organise tours and use money exchanges. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Not to forget what colonial style means! Being back in time and feel what luxury life was meaning at that time. Everything is of good level and room of high comfort. Service, as it is often in Asia is perfect and everybody pay attention to your comfort. We tried traditional massage in our room. As soon as finished we felt in a deep sleep till morning the day after. This is the best way to travel in a friendly manner.

I stayed in the 'new wing'. Most beautiful room ever! Gym was busy and a bit too small, pool was crowded but lovely.

We stayed two nights at the Metropole after adding reviews on TA. Chose a suite
In the Opera wing. Awesome choice. Deep ball and claw bath, super comfy feather downpillows,
Very elegantly appointed. The staff are ALL very attentive showcasing the best customer
Service Vietnam has to offer. Breakfast in the club room on level 7 is a gastronomic delight, as is
High tea in the afternoon in the same place. It is fairly excy for Vietnam, but not by Western
Standards. Give yourself a treat and stay here for a few nights to escape the heat
And humidity of a days shopping in the old quarter.

Room Tip: Club level in the Opera wing is nice, thisis the newer side of the hotel. But the traditional side i...
