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.
How to Get There
The staff at this hotel provides wonderful service from the concierge, maids, waiters, to the chauffeur. I particularly enjoyed their cooking class which included a visit to the local market. The restaurants at the hotel have varied cuisine and delicious food.
The resorts and hotels around the world are becoming more and more alike. This hotel is an exquisit exception from this rule!
Already the exterior whispers century old charm and entering is like travelling 100 years back in time.
The staff is super-attentive, the service is flawless and the atmosphere is unbeatable! The rooms as well as public spaces are decorated in the most authentic way, immediately throwing you into a mood of harmony and relaxation.
Talking about that, this time I visited ‘Le Spa’ within the compound and ended up getting the very best treatment. Actually, because of that I booked a treatment the following day as well.
Not to be missed - the Bamboo Bar - a study in how to create an environment you really never want to leave. Fantastic!
I truly recommend this hotel for couples, singles, business or just popping in for a drink or dinner! ????
This hotel was great, service, response time and their spa is amazing. Rooms are very desirable and comfortable. Nicely located for easy access to different areas. Most important is the staff are helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel and I would go back.
