The Sofitel Legend Metropole
Hanoi

Top 10s logo 

The Sofitel Legend Metropole is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Lux City Hotels.

Built in 1901, the Metropole in the heart of the Old City, is one of Hanoi's treasures; where invading, liberating or civil armies created their HQs and raised their flags, where the first film was shown in Indochina, where Charlie Chaplin spent his honeymoon, where Jane Fonda and Joan Baez took cover in a bomb shelter and where heads of state and embassy officials resided for many years.

The award-winning colonial and neo-classical luxury hotel, now owned by Sofitel, underwent major renovation in 1992, the Opera Wing, which is a triumph, was added in 1994. The hotel has 364 rooms in total in the two separate wings, the Opera Wing and the Metropole Wing, and although the rooms in the new Opera Wing are very stylish and more comfortable than the old Metropole Wing, they don't have the same sense of history. Wi-fi is available in the hotel at a charge.  

The Metropole has a variety of wonderful restaurants to choose from: Le Beaulie Restaurant serves authentic French cuisine, Spice Garden Restaurant serves up regional Vietnamese delights and Angelina is a thematic restaurant, serving the very best from the Mediterranean. For those who would like to try their hand at a spot of recreating Vietnamese cuisine in their own home, The Sofitel Legend Metropole also offers excellent cooking classes. There are also three bars and seven function rooms. The hotel also comes equipped with a fitness centre (with a jacuzzi and sauna), a heavenly spa for post-sightseeing relaxation (Le Spa du Metropole) and two outdoor swimming pools, one heated and one non-heated.

There is also club access for guests on the 7th floor, where traditional afternoon tea, evening cocktails and breakfast are served separately from the rest of the hotel.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
Bill Bryson

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
