Founded in 1958, the Forbes Travel Guide (formally called Mobil Travel Guide) is the oldest travel handbook in the US, and the first organization offered a 5-star rating system for the hotel. In the ranking list of five star hotels in 2020 voted by Forbes Travel Guide, there are five hotels in Vietnam. Two Vietnam hotels are given the appellation of five-star hotels (the highest class) in the list, including Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi and The Nam Hải Hội An. In addition, there are three hotels rated as four-star hotels, including Intercontinental DaNang Sun Peninsula, The Reverie Saigon and Park Hyatt Saigon.
Forbes Travel Guide highly appreciated Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi: “Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi with 364 rooms which are elegantly decorated, creating the glamour of old French architecture mixed with elegant oriental motifs.
At any location in the hotel, tourists can have great shots, save unforgettable memories of their trips.” Besides room structures, convenience and modern infrastructure, Forbes Travel Guide also highly recommended the quality of the hotel’s service. The hotel owns well experienced, devoted, tidy staff with the hotel’s profession, which makes Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi pass other competitors.
Forbes Travel Guide also praised the legendary hotel with a tour of Path of History (and bunker), as well as experiences of “Must try” when visiting Hanoi like enjoy afternoon tea at Le Club, sipping coffee at La Terrasse, or enjoy amazing cocktails at Bamboo Bar.
Moreover, Le Spa du Metropole is dubbed as “a peaceful oasis”. When going through the door of Le Spa, you seem to get lost in a relaxing atmosphere. You will be welcomed by friendly staff, soft melodies and seductive scent.
To have independent rating reviews, specialists of Forbes Travel Guide made reservations secretly and stayed for two nights at each hotel as normal guests. Ratings depend on perfect facilities and service quality of the hotels, restaurants and spas.
The Forbes Travel Guide identifies itself as the only global independent assessment organization in the hotel business. Only 20% of hotels rated by this organization are rated 5 stars.
The Forbes Travel Guide's 5-star ranking is the gold standard in the hospitality industry and only honors the "superior service facilities, state-of-the-art facilities and impeccable service quality." It is rated as one of the most prestigious, being the gold standard in the hotel industry. Tourists to Vietnam can trust hotels ranked by Forbes Travel Guide as the best hotels.
