Probably the best hotel in Hanoi, the luxurious and colonial Sofitel Metropole located right in the heart of the city is perfect if you like exploring a little on foot as well. The rooms and suites are set over three different wings, but all classically and stylishly designed. This is real colonial style luxury at its best.
Rooms and suites are divided between the original Metropole wing and the new Opera wing. The elegant Spices Garden Restaurant offers superb Asian cuisine with a local flavour while Le Beaulieu, a long-time favourite venue for fine dining in the capital, serves up the best of French cuisine and fine wines. Le Club Bar is the perfect venue for drinks and its afternoon chocolate buffet has become a Hanoi tradition.
