My partner and I stayed at the Metropole for four nights at the end of our Vietnam trip. I was considering staying at the Opera Hilton and was so glad I decided against it . It probably made a difference that we booked a Club room. The staff were unfailingly courteous from the minute we were met at the front door, the bamboo bar is terrific and the welcome drinks on Friday night were delightful. Breakfast in the Bailleau were always a terrific start to the day. I wouldn't eat at the Spices Garden restaurant- it was a bit of let down when you can eat at other Hanoi favourites like Bobby Chins, Wild Lotus or Green Tangerine. Make sure you get the concierge at the hotel to book your table and you will get good service on arrival at any restaurant- the hotel has quite a deal of cachet in the city.
We decided to stay in the modern wing of the hotel and the room was absolutely beautiful- very lux. The thing I liked most about the hotel was the palpable sense of history (you could imagine Somerset Maugham lounging around) teamed with stylish up-to-date luxury and peerless service. Hanoi is a delightfully chaotic city and the hotel was a very real haven for us. As I mentioned we ended our trip in this wonderful old hotel because I like to end a holiday on a high note- The Metropole was all I could of hoped for. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
