This is one of the top hotels in Ho Chi Minh so I will try not to repeat what other travellers have already said. The main thing for me was that I was allowed to check in at 10 am, which I really appreciated since I'd got up at 6 to fly from Da Nang, and also offered a late check-out at 3 pm the following day as I was catching the evening flight back to London.
My room was non-descript but OK, with a big bathroom and all the expected comforts -plus some of the unexpected ones like a heated loo seat (!). The breakfast buffet is a real feast and has a great choice of food -particularly if you like Japanese- but I would have appreciated a wider variety of fruit, muesli rather than sugary corn flakes, and brown bread.
The Legend seems quite popular with families, which is fine if you are travelling with children yourself but not so wonderful if you are not -there were kids screaming and running around the pool area most of the time I was there, and a very noisy birthday party in the restaurant on Sunday afternoon. Other than that, very pleasant hotel with attentive staff, close to Dong Khoi and the Opera. Good value compared to other 4-5 star hotels I checked prior to booking.
