When we were In Vietnam doing some traveling (abit on the luxurious side) we decided to check into the Sofitel Metropole but after hearing that they were full we decided the Hilton would be good which was right next door but they were also full. So after much disscusion wefound the Sheraton and decided to stay there. The Sheraton had a nice lagoon style pool overlooking the hanoi lake. infact the whole hotel was overlooking the lake and so there was a nice view.
The nice and up to date rooms make a good base for rather expensive travellers like us and they have very comfortable beds and armchairs and feature large windows looking over the pool and the lake below. Unfortunately it was winter and we always went out so we couldn't go to the inviting pool. There was a large lobby with bright colours and comfortable armchairs. Most of the large hotel was up to date although you wouldn't call the desighn modern. the international buffet proved to be tasty and comfortable.
Even though it was winter the hotel should definetly heat the pool and chill the pool when necessary all year so that every guest that stays here can experience the facilities this hotel has to offer like everyone else. the buffet was delicious but for an international deluxe 5 star hotel like the Sheraton it was a small selection. The restaurant was located rather strangly in the main lobby.
Even deluxe hotels arn't completely perfect and I accept that. This is a great hotel for businessmen and women and it is certainly very comfortable.
You should try visiting the Sofitel Metropole. It is housed in a grand old building that has been a hotel since it's opening day way back in 1901. The Hilton which is also in the old opera house is right next door.
