We stayed for 7 nights on the executive floor in the Opera Wing and it was beautiful. The room was luxurious and so comfortable with everything well thought out. Service in the lounge for breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails was welcoming and efficient. All the staff and butlers were friendly but the one that stood out for us was Wee/Wi (not sure of the spelling). He went beyond what was expected.
We ate in the Vietnamese restaurant and also the Bamboo Bar, both were good. The jazz singer, Laura, at the bar was fantastic. Not normally keen on jazz but her voice was incredible. Only thing we thought let the hotel down was the pool, we didn't use it as it was right beside the bar and fairly small. We did the bomb shelter tour and it was incredibly moving, the guide was enthusiastic and very interesting. The older part of the hotel was gorgeous, old wooden reception desk etc, You can imagine it being like this years ago.
Our first visit to Hanoi and it certainly won't be our last. It was a great city, lots within walking distance of the hotel too. Fantastic museums (Hanoi Hilton prison, Womens and War were our favourites) galleries and shops plus very friendly people and excellent food. We did a morning cooking class through The Basil Cooking Club, a 15 minute drive away in a private home. Would recommend this for sure as you get to see how a Vietnamese family live and the market visit was different to others we've been to. Such a lovely family too.
We will return and the Sofitel Legend Metropole will be our top choice of hotel. Can't recommend it enough.
