Checking out from the Sofitel Metropole as I'm writing this. I had heard excellent reviews and recommendations for years and finally got about to try it out.. and it is just as describe, beautiful interior and architecture, delicious food, but most of all the staff commitment to excellent service is what marked me during this short stay. Bell boys and doormen accompanying each guest around the hotel grounds to make sure you don't get lost, servers tending to your every need at dinner, housekeepers happily greeting you in the hallway asking if you how your stay is going... An extra thank you to Ms. Hoa in Front Office team for her visit to the underground shelter and sharing about her experience working in this establishment for many years, sincerely asking for feedback about my stay to make sure they always improve. I highly recommend anyone to take the time when in Hanoi, to stay overnight at Sofitel Metropole and experiencing their true hospitality excellency.

The service and accommodations are naturally of the highest order here, truly a gracious pleasure to visit. As a history nerd I knew I had to stay here and I was not disappointed. The review of artifacts and the bunker tour with Miss Zao was fantastic. I also enjoyed all the vintage photographs and the little hall of history. Having done a bit of research and chatting with a friend who once worked for Sofitel I learned a bit about the legend designation. There are just a handful of legend hotels around the world, with a remit that emphasizes preserving history along with Sofitel’s first class standards, and after experiencing this one I find myself wishing to visit them all. The staff were outstanding. I loved my room. I don’t usually look and say a silent goodbye to a hotel, but I did this time. Thank you Sofitel for the perfect ending to my visit to Hanoi.

We had a most unfortunate experience at a different hotel leading us to move to the Metropol. The team, in particular Hien Anh, were absolutely superb. Nothing was too much effort and she went out of her way to recover the disappointment from the other hotel, which was no easy feat. Can only say thank you for the outstanding recovery. Would highly recommend this property for service excellence.

Alfred Cunningham, a British visitor in 1901, was one of Metropole's first ever guests and as a fellow Britisher I have been one of the most recent visitors to the hotel.Our experiences "bookend" the history of this fabulous hotel. Alfred wrote, "The most important hotel in Hanoi is the Hotel Metropole. It is a splendid building, elegantly furnished and the general accommodation leaves nothing to be desired". All of Alfred's observations from almost 120 years ago ring true today. The welcome was first class and we really felt the warm of hospitality throughout our stay. The food and beverage was first class, the hotel was really comfortable with all of the necessary modern amenities while retaining the authenticity and heritage for which it is so highly regarded. Well worth a visit .....

This hotel is full of charm, but also comfortable and classy. Colonial building with all you would expect from a 5-6 stars hotel. Service is over the top and outstanding, they think of evrything to make you feel like home. Would never go elsewhere in Hanoi. Good job team!
