In more detail

Unquestionably the finest hotel in Vietnam’s capital, the Sofitel Legend Metropole is an oasis of tranquillity, style and timeless grace in the French Quarter of the city, just a stone’s throw from Hanoi’s Opera House, the Old Quarter, Hoan Kiem Lake and many other must see attractions. The deluxe rooms and suites of this French-Colonial style hotel are divided into two wings – the historic Metropole Wing and the elegant neo-classical Opera Wing – and feature high ceilings, plush Vietnamese silks, rich wooden furnishings and lavish ensuite bathrooms in which to luxuriate. The superb Legendary Suites which include 24 hour butler service speak of a bygone era and are named after greats including Charlie Chaplin and Graham Greene. There are three wonderful restaurants to choose from: visit La Beaulieu for exquisite French cuisine, enjoy exceptional Italian fare at Angelina Restaurant & Lounge, or try the Spices Garden, which combines the best of Vietnamese culinary tradition with a splash of continental flair. Sumptuous cocktails named after famous guests can be sipped in the poolside Bamboo Bar and the irresistible chocolate buffet, served in the elegant Club Bar each day between 3:00 and 6:00pm, is a highlight of any stay. Other facilities include several well-stocked bars, a wonderful outdoor pool, large fitness centre and the Le Spa du Metropole: a refined sanctuary with massage rooms, a sauna and hammam.
