Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi

As the oldest continuously operating hotel in Vietnam, Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi is special. History meets the present day in a very respectful and contemporary way. Would you think that this is the place where the first movie ever shown in Indo-China played in 1916? Twice daily there is a Path of History tour organised for guests if you would like to learn more. It even takes you to the hotel’s underground bomb shelter.

Overall, there is lots of attention to detail in the design. Even vintage phones work, they are not the only decor and there are fresh flowers. Service is exceptional, from reception to bartenders. Read further and learn why this is a top-notch choice.
