The renowned Sofitel Metropole Hanoi hotel in Vietnam recently became the first hotel worldwide in the Sofitel portfolio to be branded under the French hotel group’s new signature brand - Legend.

Markland Blaiklock, Senior Vice President, Sofitel Asia Pacific, said, “The new Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi is the first in a collection of legendary addresses around the world that define our “living heritage” and palace hotels. These historical gems will each be the leading hotel in their respective destination, have rich décor and surroundings and truly outstanding service, such as Clefs d'Or concierges, butlers and personalized service throughout the hotel.”

The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi has undergone an extensive renovation and restoration process in order for it to achieve its place as the world’s first “Sofitel Legend”.

The hotel’s 364 rooms occupy the centenary Metropole Wing, whose 110 rooms and suites feature a harmonious blending between tradition and modernity, and the 254-room Opera Wing, renovated in true neo-classical elegance, with rooms and suites that integrate new technology and comfort.

The award-winning Le Beaulieu restaurant, which opened more than 100 years ago, continues today with its famous culinary legacy, serving the finest French cuisine. Spices Garden, with its pleasant location overlooking the hotel’s garden terrace, sets the trend for Vietnamese cuisine in the city. Meanwhile, a third, brand new restaurant, Angelina, serves contemporary Italian food in an up-to-the-minute setting and, with its resident DJ, is now firmly established as one the of the city’s hotspots.

Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s Club Bar for a taste of the finest wines with jazz music, the colourful and relaxing Bamboo Bar by the pool, or La Terrasse, which is designed to emulate Parisian cafés.

The brand new Le Spa du Metropole enjoys French colonial décor with seven individually designed spa suites. Treatments combine ancient beauty secrets and holistic rituals from the East, artfully blended with contemporary methods of the West, using Clarins and Ytsara spa products complemented by exclusive oil blends created by Laurent Severac, a French renowned perfumer.

The hotel’s SoFit gym offers the latest fitness equipment with welcome rituals and top class fitness amenities.
