Hotel Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi Review

A classic Asian colonial-era hotel in the same league as the Peninsula in Hong Kong and Singapore's Raffles Hotel, the Metropole is Hanoi's most storied accommodation, offering world-class service in a historic building nestled in the French Quarter across from the Hanoi Opera House. The hotel's Metropole Wing preserves the original French colonial aesthetic, which is contrasted by the Opera Wing's neoclassical decor. Guests in both wings have easy access to the picture-perfect street-side café, one of Hanoi's most inviting swimming pools, and even daily tours to the hotel's wartime bomb shelter, where you can learn about the city's history. Artifacts, including room keys dating back to 1901, are on display in the lobby.

    Old World Hotel Charm

    We stayed at the Sofitel Metropole for 3 nights prior to our Vietnam and Cambodia trip booked through, which was fab and great location, our room was club room grand premium which gave us complimentary high tea and evening drinks in the Club lounge. We found the room to be spotless with excellent amenities. Location great - few minutes walk to the lake and to the old town. You'll find all the restaurants you need around the lake, and it's quite safe to walk around at night. We really enjoyed the central location as we were able to walk to the Old Quarter for shopping and get some very good authentic Vietnamese meals.
