Oozes historical class

Service, furnishings, style
This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The hotel oozes class, elegance and refinement from the bedroom to all the restaurants, bars and swimming pool. Top marks goes to the housekeeping as well. In short this hotel is impeccable and is well located for walking around central Hanoi. Tip: if you want to take the tour of the cellars available to guests, book early since the tours fill up quickly.

Luggage storage, heritage hotel and helpful staff.
Super comfy mattress topper bed after a hard days sight seeing. Rooms clean and overall hotel is of a high standard. Cannot comment on food as we did not eat there.

Absolutely Wonderful

Elegance, tranquility, comfort
This was an absolutely wonderful way to finish up our 2+ week visit to Vietnam. Hanoi is an amazing city and the Old Quarter is so exciting to wander around in (or more realistically - get lost in!) and the Metropole was a welcome oasis. It lived up to its reputation in every regard. We stayed in this Historic Wing - utterly beautiful, with many charming details. Very luxurious. Completely enjoyed lounging by the pool with a cocktail. We ate a light dinner in the Bamboo Lounge which was perfect. The location of the hotel is fantastic - just a short walk from Hoan Kiem Lake and the Old Quarter. Be sure to walk around early in the morning to see residents partaking in many different forms of exercise to start the day. Also, definitely do the bunker tour - very interesting to hear about the history. Beautiful hotel - well worth the splurge.

Beautiful Colonial Hotel

The colonial architecture - especially in the historical wing, the French food in the new restaurant, the bedding
It's a great colonial hotel with excellent service. One of my favorite hotels in Asia. There is a historical wing and a newer opera wing. If you like old dark woods and true colonial architecture then choose the historical wing. If you like lighter, brighter, more feminine styles then the opera wing is better.
