‘World’s Best’ Hotels Here in Vietnam
Last month, more than 17,000 readers of the US’s leading travel mag Travel + Leisure voted three hotels in Vietnam onto their authoritative ‘World’s Best’ list. The grand Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi ranked 66th in Top 100 Hotels Overall and a sparkling 7th in Top City Hotels in Asia. Park Hyatt Saigon also landed a position in Top City Hotels in Asia — coming in at number 24. Meanwhile The Nam Hai in Hoi An rose up two spots from last year, to take 10th place in the category Top Resorts in Asia. The rankings are based on readers’ ratings of rooms, facilities, location, service, food and value.
