Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi: Top 500 Best Hotels

Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, the landmark heritage hotel in the Vietnamese capital, was named one of the “World’s 500 Best Hotels” by the influential U.S.-based travel magazine Travel + Leisure.

The prestigious honor, part of the magazine’s annual “World’s Best” awards, is among the most coveted distinctions in the global hospitality industry. Metropole Hanoi was one of just six luxury hotels in Vietnam to appear on this year’s list – and one of only two in Hanoi.

Travel + Leisure is one of the world’s leading authorities on excellence in hospitality. Their recognition is particularly meaningful this year as we open a new chapter in Metropole Hanoi’s 123-year history with the relaunch of our historic Heritage Wing following an extensive and inspired refurbishment,” General Manager George Koumendakos said.

The Metropole Heritage Wing, with 103 guest rooms and suites, was meticulously restored and renovated under a 21-month construction project before reopening to guests in December. The new interiors maintain their traditional aesthetic and feel, and incorporate select original fixtures, while also introducing a considerable measure of bespoke comfort, advanced technology and vibrant color.

The comprehensive reconstruction work was centered on the original wing of the hotel, which was established in 1901 and has played host over the decades to numerous heads of state and royalty, along with world-renowned actors, writers, musicians and others.

The iconic luxury hotel also announced this month a new dining series that brings together Metropole’s award-winning culinary team with some of the best chefs from around the world. The quarterly ‘Rendez-vous’ series, hosted in the hotel’s modern French fine-dining restaurant Le Beaulieu, will spotlight Michelin-star guest chefs working in tandem with Le Beaulieu’s Chef de Cuisine Charles Degrendele to produce one-of-a-kind gastronomic experiences.

The series kicks off May 17-18 with two exclusive dinners featuring French Chef Arnaud Sauthier, who holds 1 Michelin star for his acclaimed Maison Dunand in Bangkok.
