Hanoi French Quarter charmer with a spa, three restaurants and fin-de-siècle flavor

The Lowdown

Steps from the Hanoi Opera House in the city’s French Quarter, the 364-room Sofitel blends neoclassical architecture with Southeast Asian service. Sumptuous colonial-style rooms have hardwood floors and garnet accents and are stocked with standard five-star perks, like flat-panel TVs and minibars, while the hotel’s outdoor heated pool offers an alternative place to kick back amid the city clamor. Of the six restaurants and bars, Le Beaulieu is a standout, thanks to authentic haute French cuisine and brasserie-style digs, while the sidewalk café-inspired La Terrasse offers abundant people watching and live sax music on weekends. Make time for serious pampering at Le Spa du Metropole, where you can sample from a menu of custom perfumer products.

In the Area

Head to nearby Hanoi Opera House for a performance and an up-close look at the neighborhood’s elaborate French-colonial architecture, or visit Thang Long Water Puppetry Theatre for a family-friendly taste of traditional Vietnamese performance arts. For killer photo-ops, head to Hoan Kiem Lake, known as the Lake of the Restored Sword and revered for its views, and to the Buddhist temple known as One Pillar Pagoda, an icon of Hanoi. Don’t miss the chance to explore scenic Ha Long Bay in the Gulf of Tonkin; your concierge can recommend a boat cruise through the 1,600-island archipelago and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Historic hotel

Amazing hotel with so much history too. A real 5* experience with the staff and amenities really living up to the hype.

THE place to stay if you are visiting Hanoi. It’s also superbly located as it’s close to the old quarter.

Undoubtedly of the best hotels in the world

We stayed 2 nights in the Historical Wing and 2 nights in the Opera Wing
The service is flawless and as other reviewers have noted 'it is an oasis of calm and style in the chaos of Hanoi Old Quarters'

Walking distance to the main attractions of Hanoi ...you can even walk to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in half an hour and excellent and pricey restaurants ( but hey you are at the Metropole !)

Very nice hotel !
Reviewed 4 days ago

Stayed for about 6 days at the metropole. It’s super well located and surrounded with some high end designer boutiques. It’s a safe and friendly neighborhood in which you can walk around day and night. Service was excellent. The spa was also excellent ! Had a wonderful deep tissue massage. Property is beautiful. I had breakfast on the 7th floor where it’s more private but they have a nice buffet in the lobby restaurant. They have the most beautiful flowers all the time ! It’s a great place to stay ... a bit pricey but worth it. Try the Vietnamese coffee ! Delicious !!!

Best Hotel I've Stayed in

We stayed two nights here after our river cruise. The hotel is just stunning and the service is flawless. The uniforms for the staff are beautiful and everyone takes great care of the guests. The breakfast buffet was very good. Also took the bomb shelter tour which was quite interesting. I would highly recommend this hotel. Location was perfect, walking distance to the Old Quarter, lake, etc.

The old beauty within the heart of Hanoi

I have been to this hotel countless times and I still can't get over it. It is one of the best hotels that I have ever been to. The service is tremendously good, the food is exceptionally great, and the scenery is just wonderful. Even though the rooms need a little of refurbishments otherwise the hotel is just perfect.
