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.

Great hotel - little noisier than expected

Staff, bed, ambience
A delightful stay and we would return but select our room more carefully. The noise from the rooms around in the new section of the hotel was noticeable during the night and early morning. The early Sunday morning drilling woke us but this may have been the building works next to the hotel, we couldn't tell.

Beyond Excellence!

The Social History through the ages, The Professional Friendliness Of The Staff, The VIP treatment from the concierge to the GM
I would rate The Sofitel Metropole as the best Hotel I have ever stayed in - no stranger to Luxury brand hotels I write this review while I am at Raffles enjoying a cocktail and staying here for 10 days .. I never like to compare Hotels and neither do I write on Trip Adviser though I feel this time it it necessary . The Sofitel Legend Metropole wins hands down and has been the icing on the cake "magnifiique" my stay in Hanoi was even more memorable because of our 3 day stay at The Metropole - will I return "ABSOLUTELY"
