  • Life is Magnifique

    by NEClausen on 2019-02-15 02:45 am

    A perfect one-week stay at this superb hotel. From pickup in the airport, welcome drinks and wifi in the Limo, welcome in the hotel, the room, the club, the restaurants are simply perfect. And when you also have a very professional, friendly and helpful staff, you are really in for a treat. If you love attention to details, this is the place to stay. Perfectly situated near the Opera, the Old Town and the lakes in the centre of Hanoi. Highly recommended and look forward to stay with you again in October 25th.

  • Beautiful, Well Appointed Hotel

    by DougJ25 on 2019-02-13 00:29 am

    The Sofitel Metropole is a beautiful, French colonial hotel in downtown Hanoi. It is well situated just east of the Hoan Kiem Lake, which is a charming small lake perfect for strolls.

    In the hotel, you must stay in the original building which is historic and will remind you of Vietnam of an earlier, slower time when the French ruled.

    Tip: Make a reservation to visit the hotel's bomb shelter from the Vietnam War, that is physically underneath the outdoor Bamboo Bar and was only discovered about 7 years ago during renovations.

    My only complaints:

    -The hotel lobby is small, and there is a lot of activity with hotel guests coming and going. It detracts immensely from the special atmosphere being created.

    - While the service was excellent, I felt it was a bit unrefined with the locals and think it could be improved.

  • The place to stay in Hanoi

    Our two night visit was during the Tet (New Year) festival so Hanoi was quiet. Joke. If that was quiet I'd hate to think what normal was. The hotel is an oasis amid the mayhem and the gardens and pool area quite a surprise when you consider the city centre location. Interesting how the hotel is split into two distinct entrances either side of a city block.
    We stayed in the Opera Wing which doesn't have such an impressive lobby and the historical elements of the other wing but both wings join in the middle and quests can use all the facilities of either wing. We had breakfast in the restaurant adjacent to the pool area and it was magnificent- we can recommend the hotel for the breakfast alone.
    We were originally offered a room at the front of the hotel facing the street but on the advice of other TA contributors asked to be relocated to the back where we had a first floor room and direct access to a small semi private garden. In the short time we were in it the front facing room did not appear noisy though and was probably double or triple glazed. So no problem if you don't secure our "garden" room.

    Only negative in the Opera Wing was slow lifts. We found the back stairs to compensate.

    Hanoi, being in the north of Vietnam is noticeably cooler than Saigon but with pleasant temperatures whilst we were there.

  • Wonderful Experience

    by Harriet P on 2019-02-12 06:31 pm

    We totally enjoyed our visit to Viet Nam, and the Metropole is a big reason why. The history, the location, the class, the charm, the variety of eateries, the shops, the accommodations, and the staff most of all made the experience wonderful. You walk to historical sites, the market, and museums. Additional American top-notch cuisine is nearby, if you're missing home (western fare).

  • Perfect

    The staff were outstanding. They were the ones that created the atmosphere of welcome, comfort and excellent service.

    Thank you for looking after me and my niece during our 2 night stay. The history and luxury of this hotel is spot on.

    I hope to stay again in the future.
