Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi: Offering 364 rooms, the historic Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi is filled with French colonial charm.
Reception: Formerly the residence of the French Governor of Tonkin (the historic name of northern Vietnam), it opened to guests in 1901.
Famous guests: Visiting dignitaries and celebrities -- including Charlie Chaplin and writer Graham Greene -- frequented the hotel. That glitzy aura faded during the Vietnam War, when the property fell into disuse and subsequent disrepair.
