We are currently in residence in the Metropole and are enjoying every thing about the experience. Our trip to Hanoi was to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday so we were looking for something special in hotel to enhance the occassion. On looking at previous reviews on TA there was no other choice but the Sofitel so a booking was made 6 months ago to take advantage of lower rates offered.

From the moment we stepped in we were in love with the place, when we were taken to our room that was upgraded to a Suite, 278, we thought we had died and gone to heaven. A very attentive Customer Services Manager, Matte, provided us with a rundown on all the services and restaurants available. Our room in the Opera Wing is one of the best we have ever experienced in the world, great bed, separate lounge area with flat screen TV, Bose Ipod dock complete with Ipod loaded with loads of great music, it is just great to come home to a nice piece of French music to keep you in the mood that place generates. As you move thoughout the hotel the ever attentive staff greet you with a friendly, Bonjour, and at times it is hard to believe that you are in Vietnam.
We have eaten at two restaurants, the Spice Garden where we had a special Valentines Day dinner that was excellent and the French Le Beaulieu where we enjoyed the special Le Grand Cheese Buffet experience that was stunning,.
The pool area is nice but the weather currently is not warm enough for us to go in but the surrounding Le Club bar and Orangerie are very comfortable to have a quick snack and drink.
Business Centre was very helpful in sourcing a Vietnam sim card for my Iphone and even provided me with all the instructions to make cheap calls available on Vietnam's cheap network system. In room internet via cord connection is free and stable.

We have looked long and hard to find one flaw and we did, the inroom fridge was not able to maintain drinks at what I would call cold, which seems to be common in Vietnam. Only a minor point cured by an ice bucket.

Check in & welcome: We arrived at 3am in the morning and were transfered to the reception of the new wing (small minus!), but check in went very smooth and welcome was very warm and friendly
Breakfast: You can have your breakfast in 3 different restaurants! Breakfast was excellent, wide variety of food and drinks, very friendly, helpful and attentive staff
Massage: Best massage in Asia ever!
Gym: Not too big, but good enough, modern equipment, it is a little bit too cool in there
Business Center: Good equipment, very supportive staff
Bamboo Bar at the pool: Enjoyed very good drinks in a beautiful, picturesque and romantic setting
Dinner at Spices Restaurant: Very delicious and recommendable!
Deli: Yummy macarons!
Service level: My husband got sick and the staff cared about him in a perfect way - they brought medicine, tea and cookies, etc. without invoicing anything. This was really the most perfect service level!

Don't be fooled if you somehow end up on the wrong side of this two-faced hotel: one modern, one Old World. We arrived at the hotel late at night -- our first in Vietnam -- and were disappointed to walk into a cold modern hotel lobby that looked like every contemporary boutique hotel in any city in the U.S. But when we were led to our rooms, we were led through a hallway and then courtyard into another era, the much lauded historic French wing of the hotel. Our room was pretty but quite small with lots of Asian influences.

This is a great hotel in many ways,perfect location half a block from Hoan Kiem Lake, is a real plus right in the heart of old Hanoi within easy walking distance of all the major tourist attractions.superb service, good breakfast and a very cosy atmosphere.the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and I got the feeling they really cared about the hotel.we only stayed for two nights and got upgraded to an executive club room,Our room was well equipped and you can just imagine some of the history of the place when you relax on the chaise,with fantastic with free cocktails and posh breakfast in the club room. We would definitely stay there again.

We kicked off our Vietnam vacation with the Sofitel Metropole. Our very first night we realized that we would be spoiled for the rest of our trip. Our room in the main building of the hotel was lovingly decorated with period touches, including pencil sketches of daily life in 19th century Vietnam. Our bathroom included a rain shower, whirlpool tub, and L'occitane amenities.

The managers of this hotel deserve credit for getting all of their staff on board with providing excellent service. Although some of the staff had limited English, they all sought to go above and beyond their duties to ensure that we were comfortable.

We didn't see as much as Hanoi as planned as we fell in love with the Bamboo Bar and ended up dining in and staying for a night cap.

This hotel is a destination in itself. My fiancee and I are planning another trip to Vietnam just so that we can stay here again.
