“Like going home, only better.”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

After six years we are once again experiencing the beauty and grace of the Sofitel legend a Metropole , and it is truly legendary.
We are staying on the executive floor in a delightfully stylish and spacious suite, and we couldn't be happier . I'm sure there are grander and more spacious rooms,but with the executive lounge for a quiet tea and the famous Bamboo lounge for a g and t...what else is needed really?
Since our last visit they have created a brilliant glass conservatory, expanded the Bamboo Bar, which has given the whole hotel a brand new smile.
Our greatest joy has come from the discovery of the air raid shelters left from the American War. A joy because with the fabulous Mr Duc, we were taken back in time to a war torn Hanoi, and learnt about the Vietnamese fight for freedom. It is the highlight of my visit, executed with dignity and grace by a gentleman who holds no malice and taught me much. This is a magical hotel with a huge heart. Thank you.

Room Tip: We have always stayed in the old wing, now staying in the Metropole wing is a contemporary delight...

The Metropole is what we needed to recover from a long flight. The rooms were comfortable , large wigh nice bathrooms. It is nicely located in the center of town and we could visit the old city and Keim lake. We tried their Vietnamese resturant in the hotel and it was excellent. Can't recommend this more.

stayed in their Club room (Opera Wing) and the room was fantastic with Hermes soaps n stuff. Funnily enough, there is no free Wifi throughout the hotel. Hotel is conveniently located - right between the old city and the rest of Hanoi. Rooms are average sized, bathroom all nice and marbly. U should arrange for a tour in the historic part of the hotel, its totally worth it.

We didn't stay at this hotel but we passed by while touring around the French quarter. So glad we stopped in because we noticed they had a Chocolate Buffet and High Tea in the afternoon and it was the BEST High Tea I've ever had! Amazing service and a huge selection of chocolate everything and high tea finger sandwiches including scones. It wasn't that expensive and worth every penny!!! Will come back for sure!

Just been once to Hanoi but this is the only hotel I would stay in. Good rooms, clean, new and refurnished. Good restaurant and an excellent bar overlooking the pool. The vietname restaurant is really tasty and original.

Stayed in the Metropole Sofitel for 2 nights. I have been staying in this hotel on and off for 2 years when I was working in Hanoi but never had the time to give my review.
This time around I brought my family for a short holiday. A luxurious hotel rich in history. This legendary hotel is very similar to the likes of Raffles in Singapore and the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok.
The hotel is very well maintained and charming with an old world feel and provides an Italian, French and Vietnamese restaurants options.
Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and well appointed. It provides luxurious amenities from Hermes.
The service is good and staff are attentive and helpful.
We signed up for the club benefits which include afternoon tea, cocktails with very good drinks and food selections. Highly recommended.
Breakfast buffet was good especially sitting outdoor with great cool weather in January. The whole ambiance was very delightful and relaxing.
The hotel is in a good location between the old quarters and the French quarters and close to Hoan Kiem lake. Old quarters has lots of great shopping and local restaurants and great street food if you are adventurous to try.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommended.

A wonderful experience. Immaculate room and service. The beds and linens were exceptionally comfortable. Several good restaurants also. They invite local salespeople/craftspeople to sell items on the grounds each day, which is nice for tourists. Famous people have stayed there from Charlie Chaplin to Brad Pitt. There are two sides to the hotel, we stayed in the original side not the new tower and it was beautiful. The staff was amazingly polite and accommodating and dressed in traditional "special occasion" dress. The location is ideal and walking distance to old town and parks where locals play bad mitten. Locals surround the hotel taking wedding pictures because of the picturesque setting. Crossing the street on foot, which is difficult in this city, is somewhat easier in this part of town.
