Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi

The Sofitel Metropole, a French colonial building, as stood proudly in the heart of Hanoi since 1901. With 364 rooms and suites spread over two wings, the hotel houses three stylish restaurants offering a French style brasserie to Vietnamese specialties and cocktail bars with rustic food along side huge collections of whisky's and traditional teas.

Sit by the courtyard pool and enjoy a light lunch, taking a welcome rest from exploring Vietnam's vibrant capital city.

Why we like it

For its fluttering ceiling fans and colonial style steamer chairs, the Sofitel Metropole it is just the spot to sip a Gin Fizz and watch the fascinating city of Hanoi pass by.


Explore the city using the Metropole as your base. Just a stone’s throw from the main sites of the Opera House and traditional Old Quarter makes this legendary hotel the perfect spot for exploring exciting Hanoi. For some down time sit by the pool or take advantage of the spa.


  • Unwind by the peaceful pool
  • Treat yourself to Sunday brunch at Le Beaulieu or pastries at La Terrasse
  • Listen to jazz at the Le Club Bar
  • Upgrade to an Opera Wing suite with club benefits


The Sofitel Metrople is centrally located, close to Hanoi's French Quarter and just a 20-minute stroll to Hoan Kiem Lake.
