“An excellent experience”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

This hotel exceeds even the high expectations one has from a hotel in the Sofitel chain. Everything about this hotel was very good, its location, the room (we stayed in the Opera Wing) the amenities, the restaurants. But the friendliness of the staff is something that perhaps warrants special mention. Overall, an excellent place to retreat after a day out in the "chaos" of Hanoi.

Great historical hotel in a very well located part of Hanoi. Only things that lowered my opinion of it were that they were fixing the roof of the historical wing we stayed in, making it slightly noisy during the day, and that I had just recently come from Raffles in Siem Reap, Cambodia, which I enjoyed more. Overall though, a wonderful experience to stay where so many famous names have stayed and so much history has been made before. We took the free bomb shelter tour whilst we were there, which we enjoyed very much.

I stayed 2 nights at the Metropole, and loved every minute of it! The hotel is beautifully renovated, the rooms are tastefully decorated and well appointed, the service is impeccable, the food is delicious. Truly a world class 5 star experience. Special mention to Beaulieu, the French restaurant where we had dinner twice. All the courses we tried, including the ones offered on the Mediterranean promotion, were outstanding and worth a Michelin star in my humble opinion.

We stay at this hotel for 3 nights and couldn’t complain about anything. Everything was fabulous. You leave the bustling city behind you once you walk through the door to the hotel. I love the little lovely pool and the garden area- we actually were lucky enough to have a room overlooking this.
The staff is friendly and efficient. Wow, they even remembered my name (because I checked in too late!?) so whenever they saw me, they smiled and say hello with my name
The thing that surprised me is that they are ranked No.19 on Trip advisor. Can’t believe it is so low.

This hotel is classic and elegant. It reminds me of Hotel Peninsula in Hong Kong. We stayed 4 nights at the Opera Wing.,Club floor. We had breakfast and evening cocktails everyday at the Club Lounge which was sophisticated and impressive, food and drinks quality is very good. Head Butler and Supervisor of the lounge is very friendly and helpful and professional. Gym is good size with good equipment but pool is a bit small. This is a hotel that we would love to come back again.

Room Tip: Quiet rooms that is not facing the busy streets.

We stayed in this magnificent hotel for two nights in September. It was a a great experience.
The Metropole is steeped in history as it is one of the oldest hotels in Hanoi. Walking around the hotel you can feel the history.
Staying there is amazing. The rooms are wonderful with such style and the beds very comfortable.
The service is more than first class.
The breakfast buffets were very good.
An essential experience is to have a Charlie Chaplin Cocktail in the Bamboo Bar - quiet wonderful.
If you want style and class the Metropole is the place to stay in Hanoi.

This hotel was absolutely marvelous - it is well maintained and the history makes it that much more interesting. One of the most interesting parts was the tour of the bomb shelter that was used for the hotel patrons during the Vietnam War - this was incredibly interesting and offered for free by the hotel - sign up when you get there, though, because there are limited spots. There are so many influential people who have stayed here and it's great to hear about that during the tour, too. The rooms were adorable and the bathrooms were very nice. The bed was extremely comfortable - we got a very good night sleep! The food at the restaurant was great and the breakfast had everything you could possibly desire and more. They also recommended a great local spot for us to grab some Vietnamese food - the staff were very helpful. We loved every second of our stay here!
