Hanoi's finest hotel is a slice of colonial history, with its restored French-colonial facade, mahogany-panelled reception rooms and haute cuisine. Rooms in the Heritage Wing offer unmatched colonial style and have hosted Charlie Chaplin and Graham Greene – the latter wrote The Quiet American while staying here. The modern Opera Wing has sumptuous levels of comfort, if not the same character.
Even if you’re not staying here, pop in for a poolside cocktail at the Bamboo Bar, which is surprisingly reasonably priced.
A historic luxury landmark since 1901, Sofitel Legend Metropole offers pampering spa services, 24-hour room service and a heated swimming pool. It is located in central Hanoi, near the Old Quarter. The 5-star Sofitel Legend Metropole is just 160 metres from the famous Hanoi Opera House. The scenic Hoan Kiem Lake is less than 500 metres from the hotel. Still retaining the hotel’s original grandness, rooms feature either an elegant neo-classical theme or classic French decor. Fully air-conditioned, each room is equipped with free internet and a flat-screen TV. Offering a blend of Eastern and Western therapies, guests can indulge with a massage and body treatment at Le Spa du Metropole. So Fit Fitness Centre is well-equipped and provides exercise classes. The hotel also provides a business centre and gift shop. Housing a private dining room and outdoor terrace, Spices Garden serves Asian and Vietnamese specialities. Other dining options include Angelina Italian Restaurant and Lounge and Le Beaulieu French Restaurant. Drinks can be enjoyed at any of the hotel's 3 bars.
