Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
Sofitel Legend Hotel: Old-World Vietnamese Charm
"I love the old-world colonial feel of this hotel,” says Yotam Ottolenghi, chef at his eponymous London restaurant. “Everyone has stayed here, from Somerset Maugham and Graham Greene to Jane Fonda and François Mitterrand.” Bell boys in pillbox hats welcome guests to this grand dame, which dates to 1901. Located in the French Quarter of Old Hanoi, it’s the perfect respite from the scooter traffic and sensory overload of the nearby food markets. Choose from three restaurants: Spices Garden for traditional Vietnamese cuisine; Le Beaulieu for fine French dining; and a new Italian restaurant, Angelina.
