Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
With a rich history and a host of famous guests including Graham Greene and Charlie Chaplin, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi is in our opinion the Capital's finest heritage hotel. Situated in the heart of the city, on the south-east corner of Hoan Kiem Lake, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi is the perfect base to enjoy historic Hanoi and to return to for great food, seamless service and exceptional facilities.
Built in 1901, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi boasts 364 rooms and suites split between the original grandeur of the Historical Wing and the new neo-classical Opera Wing. Décor throughout is French Indochine: polished hardwood floors offset by cream walls and splashes of rich colour from Vietnamese silk cushions, tailored carpets and oil paintings of Vietnam. A Club Floor with breakfast, afternoon tea, evening cocktails and butler service is also available for those looking for that extra level of privacy and service.
The Metropole has three excellent restaurants: the avant-garde Angelina restaurant serving a modern international menu, Spice’s Garden with its exotic Vietnamese flavours and the best French restaurant in town, Beaulieu, perfectly complemented by the hotel’s fantastic wine cellar. There is also a stunning outdoor heated pool in the courtyard garden and a lavish three-level spa where guests can enjoy a wide range of relaxing treatments.
