Let's face it, Hanoi can be an assault on the senses, so if you're looking for a little bit of serenity, a bit of class and the chance to pretend you're Angelina Jolie ( and who doesn't want that last one?), the Metropole is the place you for!
Spend the afternoon sipping cocktails and nibbling ( and I mean nibbling- note to self: Don't come hungry!) on delicious treats and forget about the very steep bill you're accruing. The service is second to none, and the ambiance is incredible. There's a tour available of the hotel, which delves into its history and its famous former guests.
This is real slice of the old grandeur of Hanoi - don't miss it!
On the down side, had the afternoon tea, and were disappointed- one and a half finger sandwiches! Give that a miss!
