The hotel is in the center, so it's super easy to access good street food area or enjoy the lake view which is quite beautiful and noisy. The service is totally amazing, staffs are nice and supportive.

Superb hotel for a stay in Hanoi

Pankaj M TripAdvisor review

Beautiful property in the heart of Hanoi. Fell in love with its gracious old world charm. It is fabulously furnished and the old wing is even better than the new one. Excellent & attentive staff. It has several restaurants and we went twice to its bar Angelina. Highly recommended. Great music, nice crowd and very tastefully done up. Not to be missed. Breakfast in the morning was a treat and the variety of food made for very difficult choices in the morning! A very nice luxury hotel and I would definitely stay here again if I visited Hanoi.

A hotel full of history…

139anned Couples - TripAdvisor review

We loved our few days’ stay at this historic Hanoi hotel. Lovely room, nice pool area with bar, and a good breakfast. We joined the history/bunker tour which they run each day at 6:00 pm and it was fascinating to hear tales of the hotel’s wartime role led by an employee whose relatives had been involved in the war. Great cocktail bar in the old part of the building and the Angelina bar too with its Happy Hour was well worth a visit. A great start to our holiday!

Dear 139anned, We are glad to learn that your travel experience in Vietnam was enhanced by your stay at Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi. We appreciate also the nice word about the variety of food at breakfast, the “ attentive service” of our Ambassadors and the nice atmosphere at angelina restaurant. The support of our guests is extremely rewarding for our team. We will certainly share your comment with our Ambassadors at all levels. We look forward to another opportunity to host you at our Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, and once again, thank you for your nice recommendation! Warm regards, William Haandrikman General Manager Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi

Jane P Couples - TripAdvisor review

This was our favourite hotel during our tour of Vietnam - we absolutely loved it! The history tour of the hotel is definitely worth doing - just book it up when you check-in as it does get booked up quite quickly. Our bedroom was quite large for a city hotel although the bathroom was relatively small and only had a shower over a steep-sided bath. The hotel lobby was always busy but with such a lovely vibe, I could have sat there all day watching the guests coming and going! Breakfast was amazing, one morning we sat at one of the outside tables by the pool in the sun and it was glorious. We ate in the conservatory style restaurant one evening and the menu and setting was perfect. We just wanted a casual, relaxed meal but there were other guests there dressed fairly formally - it seemed to cater admirably for all. The concierge service was very friendly and extremely helpful. A very memorable hotel steeped in history - Would happily return to Hanoi just to stay here again!

Dear Jane P, Thank you very much for sharing your wonderful feedback, we are flattered to read know that you had an overall great experience. We are humbled by your kind words about our breakfast, our restaurant and the excellent service of our Concierge team , rest assured that we will share to the team for the purpose of inspiring them to continuously strive hard in achieving excellence. However, we truly regret that the Premium room did not meet your expectation. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. We will share with our owner to consider for our future renovation. Thank you again and we are looking forward to be at your service again on your next Magnifique journey Kind regards, William J. Haandrikman General Manager Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi

Yves W Families - TripAdvisor review

Unfortunately we arrived late in the evening. No rooming, did not make us feel special. Executive lounge was somewhat ok. Pastries below par for a French hotel brand. Bar was ok, nice decor yet staff speaking loudly. Overall not impressed , not living up to a (past?) reputation and expectations, expensive for what it is.

Dear Yves W, Thank you for choosing to stay with us recently, however, I regret to read your review about a few shortcomings here. Please accept my apology for disappointing you and rest assured that I have related your valuable feedback to our team. We certainly do not want to leave any of our guests with a negative impression. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back for a return visit to Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi in the future and perhaps have the opportunity to regain your trust. Please feel free to contact us via when you have any plan to come back Hanoi. Warm regards, William Haandrikman General Manager Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
