Built in 1901, the Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi, Vietnam lets you peel back the years with its complimentary in-house historical tour during stay, taking you through the historical Metropole Wing and the newer neo-classical Opera Wing, the latter a contemporary, sleek addition to the building.

Here in Hanoi, the hotel is a landmark in the city. It is situated at a prime location within the French quarter, and also lies in close proximity to Hanoi’s historical centre. Its charming French colonial architecture forms part of Hanoi’s most interesting cityscapes recalling its past, with the Hanoi Opera house, the scenic Hoan Kiem Lake and a collection of trendy restaurants and cafes, all of which you can take in over breakfast on the hotel’s Persian-styled terrace of La Terrasse.

The hotel has been sculptured and cultivated with a sophisticated grandness over the last century, yet all its 364 richly designed rooms and suites are equipped with modern facilities to meet the demands of the present. Celebrity personalities from yesteryear to present day have been continuously attracted to the character of the hotel and a stay in the Charlie Chaplin Suite (VND 65,906,843 (RM11,557.75) per night) can heighten the special time spent at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi.

Outside spiral staircases lead to a manicured rooftop garden that overlooks the lawns and heated pool. The hotel’s grounds act like a peaceful retreat from the hectic city, which can be enhanced with a pampering spa treatment combining Vietnamese and Western therapies.

You need not wander far to find traditional Vietnamese and Asian specialities. The hotel’s Spices Garden restaurant lays out a splendid gourmet spread for lunch, and for something truly unique, you can try Hanoi’s renowned Vietnamese Egg Coffee, which the Sofitel Legend Metropole are said to have innovated.
