The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi opened in 1901 after being designed and built by two French investors. Resistant to the test of time, the hotel is recognized as the legendary monument of Hanoi for its contribution to the heritage of the city.
The Hotel Metropolitan Hanoi has a long tradition as a luxury venue for prestigious events and as a popular meeting place for business and leisure travelers. The hotel has hosted many famous authors, actors, ambassadors, statesmen and royal family members such as Charlie Chaplin (English comic actor), Graham Greene (English writer) and Somerset Maugham (Theater Composer and English Writer).
This legendary establishment puts the customers intimate contact with the opulence of another era. Behind its classic white facade, green shutters, original details of wrought iron and majestic wood paneling, resemble more than a century of history.
