Based upon: our book Hotel Metropole Hanoi

2012: We installed the Path of History® and overnight the corridor was turned into a museum – a hallway of information and entertainment. Furthermore it has become a public tribute to the achievements of the people of Vietnam, to the founders of the Hotel Metropole and to the people who – for over 110 years – have kept this legend of hospitality alive.

Touring the Path of History® (PoH): This permanent exhibition is open to all visitors of the Sofitel Legend Hotel Metropole Hanoi in Vietnam. Hotel residents enjoy daily tours which also include a visit of the bomb shelter of the hotel.

Guides: To guide visitors, we have trained a wonderful team of professionals to be the hotel’s Ambassadors of History.

    Well done. It already seems so far away but I will always look back at this with fondness.
