"The Hotel Metropole is an award-winning French colonial-style hotel lying in the heart of Hanoi."
Boasting a classical white façade, green shutters, original wrought iron detail, wood panelling and a lush courtyard lawn, the hotel is one of the region’s few remaining hotels of its era.
Built in 1901 by two private French investors, the hotel quickly became the rendezvous point for colonial society in the first half of the century. Following Vietnamese independence in the 1950s, the new national government opted to maintain it as the official hotel for visiting VIPs. The hotel enjoys a central location, near Hoan Kiem Lake and the magnificent Opera House.
The Metropole wing was inspired by classic French architecture with a hint of local Vietnamese style: parquet floors, Louvre windows, timeless ceiling fans, century old wood fittings and porcelain light fixtures. The more contemporary Opera wing owes it names to its location, right outside the famous Opera House. The wing has been renovated to create a harmonious blend between the historical and modern elements of the hotels. Great care was taken to respect the rich heritage of the site while installing the start of the art technology.
Guests staying at the Metropole Hanoi enjoy a full range of five star luxury hotel services and facilities. Delve into the heritage of the city at the hotel's very own miniature museum in the form of its 'Path of History', which culminates in a genuine bomb shelter within the hotel. The Metropole's leisure facilities perfectly complement a thoroughly relaxed sojourn - Le Spa du Metropole offers a wonderful sanctuary of calm with a bounty of treatments on offer; the heated outdoor pool allows for inner-city swimming and the state of the art fitness centre is one of the finest luxury gyms in Vietnam.

The three Metropole restaurants are all famous dining venues, each offering a different and exotic experience: the traditional Beaulieu, the best of France on the far side of the world, the authentic Spices Garden, the ultimate in Vietnamese gastronomy, and Angelina, the Italian wine bar, the capital’s latest hotspot.
Hanoi enjoys the typical weather experienced in Northern Vietnam, with a hot season from April through to October, and cooler winter weather from then on. The wet season mirrors the hot season, producing humid months with an average temperature of around 30°C. The weather is very changeable however, so don't be surprised to see temperatures, rainfall and sun hours vary from day to day. Generally the best time of year to visit is during April and May, with comfortable temperatures and still relatively low rainfall.
