Hotel Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
Splurge if you can: Outstanding!
What we say:
If you love to travel in comfort and luxury, and have the money to pay for it, you don't need to shop around: this is the place. Dating back to 1901, the Hanoi Metropole is without doubt Hanoi's colonial classic, with a grandeur and timeless charm unmatched in the city, or elsewhere in the region. Somerset Maugham, Graham Greene and even Jane Fonda have padded their way through the hotel's polished wooden corridors and lounged in the lovely, atmospheric rooms. The hotel built a new second building in 1996 and although you may be tempted towards the Historical Wing, correctly expecting the rooms to offer old world charm, the rooms in the Opera Wing are also stunning and will suit those looking for more modern yet still classic styling. There are seven types of rooms and if you can afford it, it's worth upgrading to the Grand Luxury or Grand Premium rooms -- the latter of which comes with Club Metropole privileges, including butler service. Of course, if you have more than $2,000 a night to spend you could stop over in one of the Legendary Suites or the Grand Prestige Suite, home to many a visiting dignitary. Be warned that not all rooms include breakfast or internet. If you get the chance, try out their Sunday brunch buffet -- it's world class. The cherry on top is the location, a short walk from Hoan Kiem and the Old Quarter and a stone's throw from the Opera House. Excellent for a romantic getaway, long sleep-in and breakfast in bed. Very knowledgeable and well-trained staff. Highly recommended.

Stayed for three nights on a trip for our 20th wedding anniversary. Had told the hotel in advance that it was our anniversry. Booked for the historical wing and were upgraded to the next category of room. At check in wife was presented with a bunch of long stem roses and bed was laid out with rose petals in a heart shape with a box of choclates in the middle! All complimentary. Must try the choclate buffet. Is great value. Only downside was that internet computer was hard to find (the business centre was in an adjoining building) and they charged us$5.00 per hour.
