Local Attractions

Set within the magnificent French Quarter of Hanoi, Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi allows visitors to become quickly immersed in a world that celebrates Vietnam's notable history. Steps from the hotel's front doors, travelers can delight in visits to numerous museums, monuments, sites celebrating natural splendor, and the various districts that Hanoi offers up for exploration. The French Quarter takes its name from a disparaging period within the 19th century, when French citizens occupied the city and destroyed Hanoi's most storied structures, replacing them with lavish fixtures that celebrated French architecture. Today, the province features an array of the city's top dining outlets, shops, and attractions, however, the structures serve as a memory of Hanoi's immense struggle as a community throughout its reign.

Within the eclectic city of Hanoi, travelers can explore the French Quarter and the districts beyond during a stay at Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi.
