Hotel Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
Established in 1901, the grand dame of Hanoi’s hotel scene has an energy all its own and a location that cannot be beat. It has played host to politicians, dignitaries, celebrities, and just about every other VIP that has spent time in the “Paris of the East.”
We recommend rooms in the Old Wing, with its beautiful hardwood floors and lovely period decor. The hotel offers expertly prepared and delicious French-Vietnamese cuisine, cooking classes, and a swimming pool. The best part of the hotel, though, is its location: it’s just steps from gourmet restaurants, prestigious art galleries, upscale craft shops, and, of course, endless cafes.
