During my stay in Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi Hotel, i was greatly impressed by the great art design of this luxury hotel located at the central of Hanoi Hoan Kiem District. The room is perfectly clean, staffs are nice and friendly, foods are marvellous, environment is greatly comfortable. It is worth to stay for few day trip in this hotel although it will be a little bit expensive compare with others. BUT, worth for money still.

The definition of elegance”

Customer service, food, location

Arriving in Hanoi at the ungodly hour of 430am from an overnight train from the verdant hills of Lao Cai in the north, I half expected the hotel I had chosen to stay in to make us wait for the official check-in time before we could settle in. How wrong I was. The Sofitel Legend Metropole is not just a hotel that defines elegance and sophistication, it takes care of its guests in the manner one would expect guests to be cared for in the truest sense of the word. Without any questions,my partner and I were checked in immediately and on top of that, when I requested a switch to my preferred location in the hotel -- the Old Wing -- the hotel staff quickly searched for available rooms and when one was found, we were given it and without additional cost. I have now stayed at the Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi a number of times and can attest to the undeniable fact that this is one of the best residences on the planet.

Quality, rooms, staff

Our experience at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi Hotel was wonderful. The attentive staff took care of everything, we're very friendly and ensured that we were always comfortable. It made traveling with our one year old that much easier. It was a very pleasant surprise to see that they had provided a bath time gift basket with rubber ducks for our baby. The hotel is beautiful and full of old world charm and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff were very accommodating in allowing us to check out much later due to a late flight and were nice enough to send out for take out from one of their favorite restaurants for a meal before our flight. Would definitely recommend this hotel for travelers looking for luxurious accommodations after long flights to recuperate.

Great service, beautiful room

Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi Hotel, conveniently located, is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The colonial architecture and tasteful decor make it an unique experience. The room was just fantastic and really spacious. It is so comfortable that it makes it very difficult to get out of the room. The staff was extremelely friendly, helpful and reactive. They helped us navigate around Hanoi and recommnended us a few eating places. Lastly the restaurants in the hotel are all amazingly attractive. It was too bad that we didn't have enough time to try them all. I would highly recommend this hotel (even for one night only) if you visit Hanoi!

Classic and luxurious”

Historic charm, location, and service

Stayed at the Sofitel Legend Metropole in June 2014, and was very, very happy. Initially had difficulty choosing between the historic (old) and opera (new) wings. Both were reported to be very good, with the historic wing just nominally more expensive. Chose the historic wing and my girlfriend and I were quite happy. The room historic and classic looking without feeling antiquated. The Metropole made us feel like we were in a great period-piece movie. The service was very attentive without being intrusive, which can be difficult. Getting all this historic charm and comfort for a remarkably reasonable price was quite a find. I highly recommend this hotel for those visiting Hanoi.

I never like to compare Hotels and neither do I write on Trip Adviser though I feel this time it it necessary .

Staff, Location, Food

Not first time in Viet Nam but first time in Hanoi for my short summer vacation was great with Sofitel Metropole Hanoi. All hotel staff were kind and well trained for this 5 star hotel. Stayed one night in the new building and the other night in the old building. The new one was modern and the old one was french styled classic one. I loved both. It is walking distance from Hoan Kiem Lake and Old Quarter, the swimming pool was small but nice and the breakfast was great. If I come back to Hanoi, I will come back for sure.

we arrived at the hotel via overnight train from sapa at around 7am, well before check-in time, but the hotel gave us a temporary room to shower and clean up. they also provided us with a local cell phone which they called us on when our room was ready. we stayed in the opera wing in a premium room, and it was absolutely gorgeous. the inner courtyard and pool area is also very nice, and is equipped with a very nice bar where the bartenders make excellent drinks. the staff was highly accomodative during our stay. the hotel location is conveniently located near hoan kiem lake, within walking distance of the old quarter and many other attractions. i highly recommend staying at the sofitel metropole if travelling to hanoi.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi Hotel for a total of 4 days and loved it. While it's certainly not a cheap hotel, it's one where you get your money's worth. The service and staff were impeccable and everything from the live jazz every evening in the hotel bar to the L'Occitane-branded toiletries made our stay pampered and looked-after. There were chocolate every night and a paper in the morning. We stayed in both the old and the new wings and I would recommend those who like those who like a huge bathtub to stay in the old wing as it was the biggest and nicest hotel bathtub I've ever been in!

Great Service and facilities

Our stay at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel in Hanoi was very nice. They have very prompt service. I emailed the hotel directly after making my agoda booking, in order to organise an extra bed for the children, and an airport transfer. A very prompt response was received. Their staff were friendly, and organisation of a last minute babysitter on the Saturday evening, was not too much effort. Rooms were comfortable. Pool was great. Lovely restaurants also. The hotel is located in a prime position, being close to sights and shopping.

the sofitel legend metropole hotel was magnificent! everything about this hotel is outstanding from the pleasant manner of the staff to the facilities and cleanliness of the restaurant and rooms. the hotel was so close to the old quarter. the room we stayed in was grand premium king-opera wing. the room itself was exactly as described in the hotel advertising. it was spotlessly clean and daily housekeeping was to a very high standard. the evening turn down service was much more than i have experienced in other luxury hotels and then there was the chocolates left on our bedside table they were just delicious . evening cocktails in the club lounge were great with a good selection of drinks and buffet hors d'oeuvres. the best hotel we have ever stayed at!

Living history”

Stunning quality, colourful history and a luxurious experience.

We stayed (2 couples) at the Metropole for 2 nights to celebrate our engagement. Upon arrival the staff greeted my fiance with a beautiful bunch of red roses and there were delicious chocolates and a lovely note waiting for us in our room. It was a romantic and luxurious introduction to what turned out to be a must-have experience in one of the world's best hotels. The hotel is steeped in history. Many famous historical figures - from politics, the arts and entertainment - have stayed there over its 110+ year history. The staff reflect this pedigree with their always professional, attentive and polite manner. The hotel recently discovered a bomb shelter and there is a historical tour that lets you in on the life of the hotel. The rooms are very clean and comfortable (a bed like you'd have at home and a very stylish bathroom). The room is decorated tastefully and tended to well by the staff. The Bamboo Bar is the perfect way to spend the day or night lounging around watching the guests come and go through the main pool and gardens. It's pricier than most places you'll find in Hanoi, but coming from Australia we still found things to be cheaper or similar in price to home. There's plenty of high-end shopping to be done in the hotel if that is what you're after, and the hotel's own boutique is full of beautiful Vietnamese hand crafts. The whole experience of staying at the Metropole proves why this hotel was given Legend status, and you come away with the feeling that you participated in the exciting history of a great city.

Vintage hotel with great service and rooms”

Historic hotel, nice decor

we picked this hotel as it was a historic hotel and it also has the reputation of best hotel in vietnam. we were not disappointed. we stayed at the historical wing rather than the opera wing although we initially made a reservation for the opera wing. after visiting both wings, we decided on upgrading to the historic wing as the opera wing looked like any other modern hotel. the rooms in the historical wing was really beautiful and the bed was extremely soft and comfortable. you can also request for different pillows to suit your sleepin posture. location wise, sofitel metropole is about a 15 min walk to hoan kiem lake. there are also nice bakeries around this area. the luxury brands like lv, hermes, gucci are also located in this area if you are thinking of getting any luxury goods. however, i was a little disappointed when i was checking out as the reception did not have enough usd to offer me back my change. i had paid for my expenses using cash and paid in usd. i was expecting change of about 30 usd but the reception only had usd as change for me and they offered to pay me the remainder in vnd. i explained that i do not need vnd as i am leaving vietnam, but they said that they really did not have anymore usd. this really disappointed me as a hotel like sofitel did not even have 30 usd for change and it was only 11am in the morning on a working day.

First class hotel”

Great location, excellent service, relaxing experience and service with a smile.

Our friends that accompanied us to Hanoi said the only hotel to stay in was the Metropole Sofitel. As we arrived we were quickly taken to the club floor to check in and brought a wonderful cold drink. My husband and I had a wonderful corner room that was quite large and beautiful. We quite enjoyed the club floor with breakfast, afternoon tea and cocktails in the evening. We stayed for two nights and then went off to Halong Bay. When we returned we came back to the Metropole and asked if we could leave our luggage for a few hrs. until we had to go to the airport. They were very gracious and took care of our luggage. We went and had lunch by the pool and then were able to go back to the Old Quarter to a gallery and purchased a beautiful painting. Would return to the Metropole Sofitel in Hanoi.

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.
