We did not stay in the hotel but had breakfast at the hotel’s poolside restaurant. The breakfast was delicious and the team really made us feel like VIPs. One waiting staff that really stood out was Chien. He is attentive, friendly, and made us feel...very welcomed. We will definitely look at staying in this hotel the next time we are back in Hanoi.More

Shame on your Metropole as you should be cocktail destination being thee 5 star heritage hotel off Hanoi. Sadly last night (Friday evening) we ordered two rounds of cocktails 6 drinks in total. Glasses were half filled and you could not taste any alcohol. No...effort on presentation and our garnish was just a slice of lemon. Sadly in a very empty bar service was also very lacking. Total cost was 2,100 dong or £72 for nothing memorable. My advice to customers is head to old quarter and get double the volume of cocktail for a quarter of the price. My advice to Metrolpole management is shake up your bar staff. Due to poor experience I’m no longer taking my family to the French restaurant so that poor service you’ve lost a fortune.More

This is a great little outdoor, poolside bar. Excellently designed for comfort and style with top quality drinks and staff. Even more interesting is that it captures the `al fresco' vibe whilst being smack bang in the middle of the hotel. It can get a...little cold in winter but blankets are available to keep out the chill. Great place to grab lunch or after dinner drinks.More

This wooden historical bar with reasonably priced cocktails, smooth and friendly service and laid back atmosphere offers an immediate refuge from hustle and bustle of Hanoi. If you are looking for a place to recharge while exploring the Old Quarter, the Bamboo Bar is THE...place! It’s great for crowd watching and just relaxing by the pool with a book or a newspaper, which you can borrow right at the bar.More

At anytime, "Bamboo Bar" may be the right choice! An elegant venue by the pool side of "Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel". "Bamboo Bar" is perfect for a light meal, coffee, tea, snacks or a smart cocktail. It is busy and cosmopolitan, reflecting the magic atmosphere...of this legendary hotel in Hanoi. Being a guest, or not, "Bamboo Bar" should not be missed. Prices on the luxury side, as expected. But you certainly won't regret! Bon Appétite!More

During my stay at the Metropole I had some time on my hands late morning and decided to head down to the Bamboo Bar Bar for a signature egg coffee and a read of my book. The Bamboo Bar is located in the epicentre of...the hotel and it's a great place to "people watch" and just watch the world go by. The seating is especially comfortable and the service was very attentive and professional. The weather in this autumn morning in Hanoi was perfect with a mild breeze and it was lovely to be outside. I'll be sure to return on my next visit to the Metropole but this time it will be for happy hour cocktails with friends.More

Tucked away, inside the Sofitel Legend Metropole, adjacent to the pool is this, secluded, full-service bar. An ideal spot for a quiet afternoon or evening refreshment. All drinks come with "nibbles". Not cheap, but quiet and peaceful.

Although we did not stay at the Sofitel, we were curious to visit this iconic hotel so we went twice for lunch to the bamboo bar. Service is very upmarket and the personnel is kind and friendly. I can highly recommend the salade niçoise and...the beef pho. Beautifully presented and both delicious. On our second visit, we ordered burgers and got the wrong ones. They offered to replace them, but we decided to eat the ones we had been served which were a bit bland, so they probably needed the foie gras or cheese to be more tasty. Our coffee was then offered in compensation which was a classy gesture. It’s a lovely place to spend time on a sunny afternoon and the objects in the glass case in the hall are very interesting, underlining the varying fortunes and misfortunes of the hotels past.More

We cannot say enough about how wonderful the Bamboo Bar is. Situated by the pool and surrounded with greenery, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The staff treated us so well, we ate there everyday. The mushroom soup with smoked duck is not to be...missed. We ate virtually everything on the menu; always served with grace and a smile. Mr. Tuan taught me how to say 'thank you' in Vietnamese--a phrase that carried me well around the city. Ms. Tu was exceptional in helping me adjust and feel comfortable.More

Went to the Bamboo bar at the Metropole hotel. Went to read about the history and that lead us to the bar. Had the "Charlie Chaplin" drink (!!) We had read about the bomb shelters under the bar, but you have to be a hotel...guest to go down in it. It was a slow night and waitress probably felt sorry for a couple of "old" ladies, and took us down there. What a treat! It made our trip! Thank you so much. Go and try the Charlie, 1 isn't enough.More

The Bamboo Bar is one of my favorite spots in Hanoi, especially wonderful after a long day in the heat and bustle and in need of silence and fresh air this is the place to go. The ambiance is amazing, the drinks are delicious, the...menu is wide and varied, but most importantly the wait staff are attentive and thoughtful, particularly Quy who was always extra kind. When I return to Hanoi I will definitely go back to the Bamboo Bar.More
