If you haven’t been to the Metropole, you haven’t been to Vietnam!
“The Metropole is one of the last grand hotels of the exotic East. I have returend to the Metropole many times. While researching its history I have - childishly - fallen in love with many elements of its past. I think you feel it when you read my book. But no period has been more fascinating than the past 15 years, when the hotel developed again into an international grand hotel. That is great hotelkeeping at its best. I congratulate the managers and the owners, who have created an island in this city.”
Bill Clinton arrived on 13 November 2010. General Manager Kai Speth presents the history book of the hotel. Click the image to see the original large photograph with many members of the hotel’s staff.
