Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, Hanoi, Vietnam

This feels like a small corner of France in Asia, thanks to the hotel’s Côte d’Azur-style façade and glass canopies, Parisian-style cafés serving fine wines, cheese and pastries, and even Hermès in-room beauty products!

Vietnam’s legendarily-luxurious hotel is now effectively two buildings working as one: the Metropole wing retains all the original colonial charm and allure, while the new Opera wing is altogether more dramatic, with subtle lighting, bold wallpapers and rich fabrics.

​Club Level rooms have 24-hour butler service, and the expansion has also added an excellent new spa with themed treatment suites, a Hammam and Finnish sauna.

A couple of must-do's are the hotel's cookery class including a trip to the local market followed by lunch or a shopping expedition in the hotel's 1953 Citroën with one of their 'in-the-know' personal shoppers – once they've found what you're looking for, they'll even haggle for you!
