Opened in 1901, Sofitel Legend Hotel Metropole is one of the old colonial hotels of south-east Asia offering travellers the warmth of Vietnamese hospitality whilst staying in the heart of Hanoi’s former French Quarter.
This Grand Dame of a hotel features 364 rooms including 22 suites which showcase richly cultured interior design, while the premium rooms come with bright interiors and elegantly furnished timber floors. Think dazzling white bed linen, dark hardwoods, ceiling fans and shades of white and grey on the walls. Some offer a small terrace opening into a garden feature.
The property plays host to several bars and restaurants, including an Italian steakhouse, a Vietnamese restaurant, Le Beaulieu and Le Club which hosts live jazz nightly. After a day of exploring, relax in Le Spa du Metropole with treatments that blend Eastern holistic rituals with Western contemporary methods. There’s also a heated outdoor swimming pool.

"This is a beautiful old colonial-style property that has an exemplary reputation; celebrated authors, actors, ambassadors and heads of state have all stayed here. It’s very well located within walking distance of the Opera House, Hoan Kiem Lake and the busy streets of the old town, and the facilities are second to none. Don't miss the garden balcony, Le Balcon, which forms a welcome green oasis from the hustle and bustle."
