Metropole (Sofitel Legends)


‘La Terrasse’

If you haven’t been to the Metropole, you haven’t been to Vietnam!

“The Metropole is one of the last grand hotels of the exotic East. I have returend to the Metropole many times. While researching its history I have - childishly - fallen in love with many elements of its past. I think you feel it when you read my book. But no period has been more fascinating than the past 15 years, when the hotel developed again into an international grand hotel. That is great hotelkeeping at its best. I congratulate the managers and the owners, who have created an island in this city.”

Andreas Augustin

Charlie Chaplin enjoyed it, Graham Green visited it as a war correspondent and Jane Fonda found shelter here, togehter with singer Joan Baez, who sang in the hotel’s bunker during air raids.
