Superb hotel with impeccable service. The breakfast buffet was out of this world. The management was very attentive in resolving any concerns we had. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful hotel. Very busy, but wonderful. It has everything - beauty, amenities, excellent food, very attentive staff who even remember your name! There wasn't anything I didn't like.

Iconic property with great history and excellent location. I was clear about our desire for a quiet room at check in, away from street noise, and was still given a room street side across from a construction zone. Not sure I understand why. Issue resolved on subsequent night and remainder of nights were above expectations. No real apology and no explanation of initial room assignment. No courtesies - drink, discount, etc - offered.

Beautiful old hotel with tons of character. Everything is in perfect condition from the antique light fixtures to the ornate crown molding. But the nicest aspect of staying here is the hotel staff and their great customer service.

If you absolutely need to live in a 5-star bubble when you are traveling internationally then the Metropole is the likely, though unadventurous and clichéd choice for you! Hanoi has many, many wonderful small lux boutique hotels that will give you a much better feel for the local culture and people. I stayed at the Metropole on my recent visit to Hanoi and found staff more focused on money than on service -- every interaction started with my room number and the charge for this or that. As an example, the daily breakfast buffet is $32 US. When my timid traveling friends left Hanoi and I stayed on, I moved to a boutique hotel in the Old French Quarters -- my room was bigger, my bathroom was enormous and the buffet breakfast was just $8.00. At the boutique hotel, the staff knew me by name from the first day on and every afternoon when I came back I truly felt at home and welcomed. At the Metropole, I felt like my wallet was the most interesting thing about me. PS, the airport transfer at the Metropole cost more than a night's stay at most of the high end boutique hotels.

This is the classic hotel in Hanoi. No where else would one want to stay.

great hotel word class every thing was perfect Great location food is wonderful staff could not do enough enough to in help us

As a hotel connoisseur, my stay at the Sofitel Legend Metropole was specifically to see how they stacked up against other hotels in the area. Hands down, Sofitel exceeded my expectations. Everything was perfect. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. They took the time to show me two different room choices, a regular room and a superior room with lounge access. Of course, I went for the upgrade and it was absolutely worth it. I highly recommend going for an upgraded room with access to VIP lounge. If I'm ever in Hanoi again, this is the only place I would stay. Also, don't miss out on the amazing mixologists at Angelina's. Having a drink there is a very unique experience, #1 in my book.

By Western standards, this is not a luxury hotel and is not worth the money. Hanoi is not exactly brimming with luxury boutique hotels, so I think they get away charging what they do because they are the only game in town. If you want a totally Western experience and are scared to branch out into the unknown, then stay here. The pool is nice except when kids ruin your sunny day. The prices for food and drinks are not at all competitive. Expect to pay Western prices. Service was fine, but I would not stay here again.

everyting was perfect, the service, the food, the spa, is the best hotel in Hanoi by far

Thanks to Sofitel, I had a great holiday in Hanoi. Every staffs has kind and attentive attitude to the customers, and the room condition was really good.
