We stopped in for a croissant and later lunch. First of all, absolutely 5 star service here. Servers are attentive and polite. We received complimentary macaroons because we waited quite some time for our meals. The bar is tucked away behind the pool. A very serene environment great for popping in for a pre-dinner drink. A nice break from the... More

Whenever I travel in Asia I always try to find a bar/restaurant that will give you the colonial experience. Hanoi is a wonderful city, and the street food and traditional bars are great places to sit and watch the world go by. But if you are looking for just one night where you are prepared to dress up a little... More

Although we didn't stay at this lovely hotel, we did take the time to experience the poolside Bamboo Bar. We only stayed for 1 drink but it was great to experience the history of the Sofitel Legend Metropole. The Graham Green cocktail is yummy! We didn't order food, but the staff brought us some complimentary nuts / nibblies. We then... More

We visited during our stay at the Sofitel hotel. Great drink options, food is okay - quite overpriced especially given you can get MUCH better food in town for a tenth of the price. Note: Don't sit by the pool with your food unless you like pool-water in your food. The signs that say 'No Diving' mean nothing apparently.

We ended a busy day here, away from the bustle of the streets. They made us very welcome, and served delicious drinks!

We had a light lunch of Vietnamese spring rolls which were delicious. This is a lovely bar overlooking the swimming pool and a great place to have a relaxing break from the busy Hanoi scene.

This lounge offers light snacks and a variety of drinks. It's easy to carry on a conversation because it is quiet.

This has to be one of the best looking bars in the world. Its stunning. We sat just outside on the terrace, but the pool on a balmy evening last week. My wife is an interior designer and she was completely knocked out. Its not cheap by local standards, but for the calibre of hotel (real *****) that this is... More

Great bar in this old colonial style hotel. Masses of history. Good place to relax. Definitely worth a visit.
