A city centre deluxe hotel with a stunning pool area, several different style restaurants. Live music in the bar/ restaurant. Buffet breakfast plentiful and excellent. We particularly liked the SPice Graden restaurant but it is pricey.

First stop on tour of Vietnam and it truly is an oasis in a city teeming with motorbikes and people. Room was in old section and incredibly elegant and roomy. Food and bar service hard to beat and location central for touring.

We fell in love with Vietnam and stayed at many lovely hotels during our two-week stay there, but the Metropole is by far our favorite! It combines historic elegance with warm, personal service; a comfortable room with Asian decor and modern amenities; an excellent (and pricey) Vietnam Restaurant across the courtyard; and a spectacular daily breakfast buffet with both Asian...

Just went for a drink and snack at the Bsmboo Bar. Had beers and a few bits to eat. Good range of food and generous portions. Nice place with lots of of history. Charlie Chaplin spent his honeymoon at this place for Gods sake. Loved it. Worth a visit even if you are not staying.

The rooms/suites are beautiful, with flowers and water bottles in silk bags waiting for us. The "Do Not Disturb" sign for the rooms is a beautiful inscribed... More

I have been traveling for 3 weeks and this is the first hotel that understood if I was allergic to feather pillows, then I needed the feather comforter changed too. Staff greeted you with French such as, "Bonjour, Madame." They were eager to please their guests. Rooms were spacious and grounds were being decorated for Christmas. There are choices of... More

This hotel is exceptional on so many levels. From the bell service and greeting at the door to the room quality and additional services offered to guests who leave the hotel for single or multi-night tours to Halong Bay, Sapa etc. Occupying its own triagular block in old town Hanoi, you have the choice of the new or old wing....

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on our arrival in Hanoi. The hotel is perfectly situated for the centre of the city without being noisy. It is built to resemble the French colonial style and is really impressive. We were greeted warmly by all the staff over the 2 night stay. They were all very... More
