As Good As Vietnam Gets
Metropole Ranked No. 5 On CN Traveler Gold List 2016
Originally built in 1901, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi has remained a prominent fixture in the heart of Vietnam’s capital. Nestled in Hanoi’s Old Quarter, the Metropole takes visitors back in time with its architecture, design and history. Its Legendary Suites reference esteemed guests from back in the day — Graham Greene, Charlie Chaplin and Somerset Maugham.
Its historical significance has put the hotel in the No. 5 spot on Condé Nast’s ‘Hotels Where You Can Travel Back in Time: Gold List 2016.’ This is the sixth time since 2009 that the Metropole has made this prestigious list. Says Condé Nast: “The go-to gathering spot for Hanoi’s colonial society in the early 20th century and the official hotel for visiting VIPs following Vietnamese independence, this French-colonial landmark epitomizes Euro-Asian sophistication.”
