Recognised by TripAdvisor as one of the top destinations in the world, Hanoi, Vietnam is home to the award-winning Sofitel Legend Hotel Metropole and its ultra-luxurious Hotel Metropole Hanoi Club Floor. Built in 1901, the stately Hotel Metropole Hanoi has long been the hotel of choice for diplomats and celebrities including Presidents of the United States, Charlie Chaplin, Jane Fonda, and Sir Roger Moore. And if it is good enough for a 007, it is good enough for Luxe Travel Family.
With 364 rooms and suites, you can stay in the historical Metropole Wing, the newer and more contemporary Opera Wing, or on the exclusive Hotel Metropole Hanoi Club Floor – a hotel within a hotel and our home base during our vacation in Hanoi.
Although the Club Floor privileges come with a price, here is why I believe the Hotel Metropole Hanoi Club Floor offers excellent value for travelling families.
Access to the Club Metropole Lounge
Sofitel Legend Hotel Metropole Hanoi Club Floor guests enjoy complimentary all-day access to the spacious Club Metropole Lounge with drinks, international newspapers, tables for card games, book nooks for reading, WiFi, and a dedicated concierge.
Club Floor guests can also go to the Club Metropole Lounge for a buffet-style breakfast, traditional high tea, and an evening cocktail event. And once you pay to stay in a Club Floor room or suite, there is no additional charge for the food and drinks. The evening cocktail event features live piano music, a variety of canapes and desserts, as well as an impressive drink menu including wines, champagne cocktails, and martinis – the perfect ending to a day exploring Hanoi.
Convenient access to high-quality food, drinks, and the living room-like Club Metropole Lounge space throughout the day is a sanity-saving option for many travelling families. And if you use the Club Metropole Lounge for breakfast, afternoon tea, as well as evening cocktails and canapes, a stay on the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi Club Floor offers excellent value.
Sofitel Legend Hotel Metropole Hanoi Club Floor Guest Rooms
The over 500 square foot Club Floor guest rooms are larger than the standard guest rooms and feature light-filled tile bathrooms, dark wooden floors, and luxury amenities including Hermes bath products. We viewed rooms on and off of the Hotel Metropole Hanoi Club Floor and preferred the spacious and more luxurious Club Floor accommodation.
Luxe Travel Family’s Travel Tips
- The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, located walking distance to Hoan Kiem Lake, the Old Quarter, and the Opera House, is well situated for exploring many parts of the city on foot. If you need a taxi, there are plenty outside the Hotel Metropole Hanoi.
- Visit the Sofitel Legend Hotel Metropole Hanoi website to learn more about the property and the Hotel Metropole Hanoi Club Floor. We paid approximately $200 CDN/night extra for a family of four to stay on the Club Floor.
- If you are travelling as a family, be sure to ask about the Magnifique Family offer that includes 50% a second room for the children.
- Apart from the Club Floor amenities, we enjoyed the lush courtyard, heated outdoor pool, and numerous bars and restaurants scattered throughout the Hotel Metropole Hanoi.
