Welcoming ambassadors, heads of state, celebrities and legendary writers for over a century, the hotel’s 364 rooms are situated in 2 wings. Guests can choose from the historical grandeur of the 110-room centenary Metropole wing, or experience the neoclassical elegance of the 254-room Opera wing.

Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi offers guests 6 restaurants and bars, helmed by head chef Andre Bosia, for relaxing and socializing. The elegant Le Beauleau restaurant serves the finest French cuisine in Hanoi and is renowned for its evening dinners and sunday brunches, while Spices Garden restaurant features the exotic and indigenous flavours of the region. The Italian steak house and bar Angelina is the Vietnamese capital’s newest culinary address, where the “who’s who” of Hanoi gather. Other dining venues at the hotel include the Bamboo Bar, La Terrasse du Metropole and Le Club.


For relaxation, the new Le Spa du Metropole features French colonial-style decor. 7 spa suites allow guests to indulge in treatments blending the rituals of the East with contemporary methods from the West. The spa uses products from Clarins and Ytsara, complemented by oil blends created exclusively for the hotel by French perfumer Laurent Severac. There is also an outdoor swimming pool and the SoFit gym offering the latest equipment and fitness amenities.


The Sofitel Legend portfolio is set to grow further with upcoming properties such as Cartagena Santa Clara, The Old Cataract, The Winter Palace and Cecil Alexandria in Egypt, the Moroccan palace Fes Palais Jamai and Amsterdam’s The Grand, which hosted the wedding of Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands in 1966.
