On our last night in Hanoi we decided to splash out and stay at the Metropole in Hanoi. It was perfect. Situated in the centre of Hanoi, this place is full of history and made the perfect end to the holiday. As a platinum Accor member I was able to get a free upgrade to the Club Opera room in the new wing and a late checkout at 4pm which was perfect for our evening flight.
We dined at the Le Beaulieu, the french restaurant in the hotel that apparently has some of the finest Vietnamese inspired French food around, and although pricey, was by far the best I've ever had!

One of the purposes of my travel to Hanoi was to stay at Metropole and to find out if the spirit of the Age of Travel is still alive there. Now I know - it is true, It's like to go back in the past when travel was really travel full of new discoveries, new impressions, when usual pleasures suddenly recieved new spice. Thank you! I would like to wish you never lose those treasures which are so rare in our hi-tech life.

This is a wonderful hotel. Stayed for 3 days and enjoyed the atmosphere, cocktails and ambience of the hotel. Expensive compared to other hotels but worth every penny as a special treat. A great pool to relax and have a snack. Recommendations: Club de L'Oriental for dinner (is a 2 min walk) and 69 Restaurant on Ma May Street for dinner (is a 15 min walk but leave early as in the shopping Old Quarter area so great to browse at the amazing shopping streets).
We had breakfast at a café on the side of the Hoan Kiem Lake (a 5 min walk) that does all kinds of drinks and coffees and cooked breakfasts with a great menu and service and so reasonable. You can't miss it as it is open air by the side of the lake as walk from hotel (less than 5 mins walk). Visited and walked everywhere and very safe: Temple of Literature, Fine Arts Museum, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Museum next to One Pillar Pagoda and try and find the stunning Ba Da Pagoda with gold gilt Buddha's (down a narrow doorway on a busy street) but not to be missed. That is a great day of activities. Hanoi is a lovely city and very safe but wear a money belt with your phone in at the night market and have nothing in your pockets.

An absolute spoil , unpretentious luxury ,superb service , friendly giving staff and a wonderful atmosphere -would stay there again tomorrow . Very central and a great place to explore from. Very spacious and comfortable rooms , a variety of restaurants and as you would expect exceptional Vietnamese / French fusion food . In my limited experience easily the best hotel I have ever stayed in.

we had two nights in this awesome Hotel. You will recognize, it is not only charming, it has a beautiful sense of flair. Breakfast and lots of cake during tea time was included. We loved both bars, inside and outside. Take some moments to enjoy those during the evening.

Room Tip: We loved the older part of the Hotel complex.
