We only had - sadly - one night in Hanoi, but LOVED this hotel. Marvelous room in old section of hotel; we enjoyed the bar on our first night (great jazz and cocktails). Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful

Room Tip: Rooms in old section are lovely.

We were lucky enough to be in Hanoi in August, and had a 2 night stay in the Old Wing of the Metropole, our room overlooking Dien Hong square to the North. We have stayed at the Metropole several times, and it is one of our favourite hotels in Asia.

The location of the hotel is great for exploring the central area of Hanoi around Hoan Kiem Lake, and is about a 15 minute walk from Hanoi Cathedral. The centre of Hanoi is easy to explore by foot once you learn how to cross the roads!

When the sightseeing’s too much for you, laze in or around the pool and wait for the mango sorbets to start doing the rounds. Perfect evenings are at the bar by the pool, with a book and a glass of wine.

We checked into the Sofitel Club and could not speak highly enough of the experience!

This hotel was quite expensive in local terms, but the staff and facilaties are first class, so if you want to go somewhere that is extremely good value and want to be treated like a king, this is your place!!

Well located with easy access to Banking sights, shopping and eating places.
Luxurious with excellent service. The concierge team is knowledgeable and very help full.
Rooms are comfortable though avoid those at the end of corridors as may be very noisy if next to service lifts.

Room Tip: Avoid end of corridors rooms as may be next to very noisy service lift. 301 is one of them

We stayed for 3 days en route from Frankfurt to Sydney. The architecture & style of the hotel is superb, the staff were exemplary. We stayed in the Opera Wing with access to the Sofitel Club floor. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We chose a limousine pick up at the airport and we waited for our room (we arrived early) in the Sofitel Club. During our stay we ate in all of the restaurants - the food was up to standard (as in a lot of Asia the wine was very expensive). We took the history tour of the hotel & the knowledgeable guide Mr Duc took us through the history of the hotel from its establishment in 1901 & various moments in history. At the conclusion of the tour we entered the air raid shelter just by the swimming pool which was rediscovered during some recent renovation - highly recommended.
We would definitely stay again but next time in one of the original rooms in the Metropole Wing. A very enjoyable stay.

This is the best hotel in central Hanoi. The location is great near Hoan Kiem Lake and a walk away from the old Hanoi. Breakfast is great. Service is great. Rooms are a little small for Asia, although wth a family we opted for a connecting room which was fab.

the manager and staff are also excellent. A must place to stay if your budget allows!

If you come to Hanoi stay in this hotel. It reminds the past, with a luxury service. Elegant, classy, quite. It's in the Centre, confortable for every excursion. It s upscale, so you don t find noisy and bad dressed tourists.
