    Massively Overpriced ”

    Charging almost $400 for 1 night in a room around 32m square. Tried this hotel based purely on never having stopped in a a sofitel before. The room was small, dated, and lacking in facilities. No iron, shower was tatty and old,bathroom was very average. Staff are good and helpful but feel false. No way is this hotel worth the price. Hotel feels claustrophobic and not aired very well. Most likely due to low ceilings Only upside is the breakfast which is great. Overall in my opinion its massively overpriced and runs purely on its name and location. After 1 night we moved to hotel Melia which was not to far away. Will leave a review separately for melia as i dont want to make it look like its a biased review bigging up the melia whilst trying to belittle sofeitel

    Classy, but expensive for the area”

    Great hotel, top service, really interesting history, awesome room service - but it’s quite expensive relative to other nice hotels in the city , and a long walk from the old quarter and restaurants (everything around it is western food).

    Best Hotel, Excellency in service”

    Sofitel Metropole is the best hotel in Hanoi and the service from staff is impeccable. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Hotel and will definitely be coming to stay here again and recommend our friends to stay here. I just loved the attentiveness of the service staff to the level that they even knew which tea I liked in the morning and which tea I liked in the evening and which drinks I liked to drink. The Majordome service was the best I have received and the housekeeping was excellent. Love it. Keep up the great job and hope to be back soon.

    Lovely hotel, impeccable service”

    A bit pricey, but hey, this is the finest hotel in Hanoi. Is it worth the price? I think so. My stay there was immensely enjoyable - the opera wing queen bed room, though not very big, was very clean and comfortable. The hotel was classy, exquisite but not snotty. What made the hotel stand out the most, I think, was the very hospitable and sincere staff all around, from reception to restaurant, travel desk and bellhop, who all made me feel genuinely welcome. I’d stay here again if I were to revisit Hanoi (hopefully be able to stay in the larger king bed room!)

    Chic and elegant with a unique atmosphere”

    Probably one of the best if not literally the best Hotel in Hanoi. The staff is absolutely excellent, remembering guests' names, preferences and managing to create a real "empathy" while not being too invasive. The room itself in the "Opera" wing was very comfortable but not outstanding for a 5 star hotel (rooms in the historical wing are much fancier), but the facilities (hotel garden, pool, spa, bar, restaurants, ...) had a genuinely unique and chic atmosphere, food both at breakfast and drinks at the bamboo bar at night were affordable (by international hotel standards) and absolutely delicious. Service was top notch and the staff knew exactly how to make each guest feel special and treat each guest in a courteous and consistent but individualized manner at the same time. You can feel that the hotel is extremely tightly and professionally managed so that this old historical building in the heart of Hanoi remains world-leading class, both in terms of facilities and service

    Love the Sofitel in Hanoi. Location is great, rooms are full of character, pool is lovely and the staff are very attentive. Only complaint is the cost of the food! But you're never more than a 15 minute walk away from delicious street food eats at a fraction of the cost. Highly recommend.

    Quite enjoyable”

    This is quite the establishment. I've stayed at two of hotels in the area and they don't compare. Price to quality ratio does match up. You do get what you pay for. This establishment offer plenty of facilities such as spa, fitness, restaurants and bars to choose from. My favorite of the bunch has to be the bed and beddings. We slept good! Also note, breakfast is not free but for the price you have a buffet style brunch with a lot of selection. I also opted for late check out (to 4pm) with limousine service (BMW) to the airport. All are extra costs. Aside from paying for the night, you do have to pay for any extra service. All in all, I would stay again for more than a night, maybe two days max ;) .

We had a great historic tour around the building. The hotel itself had so much character from the French colonial style. All in all probably the best hotel I have stayed in.

    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.

    was great. I will not suggest the tour guides from the hotel. way overpriced for the service. Not so knowledgeable and I could have myself done a better job on my own, especially food tour for half day. guy was too busy taking personal calls. The restaurant waiters were a bit rude if you changed tour option from full breakfast to continental. Overall the hotel reception and other room service was outstanding.
