HA NOI — Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi has made the Conde Nast Traveller’s list of the best hotels in the world for 2018.

Viet Nam’s highest hotel was hailed as number one in Ha Noi by the editors of the prestigious US travel publication.

Spanning six continents and 54 countries, the annual Conde Nast Traveler Gold List recognises hotels around the world that editors and contributors of the bestselling magazine visit time and time again..

The 2018 Gold List Awards were announced in the January issue of Conde Nast Traveller as well as on the publication’s official website.

"This year’s Gold List is a love letter to hotels, resorts, and cruises that stay with us long after we have returned home,” wrote editor-in-chief  Pilar Guzman. “We are interested in the way a place, in all of its ineffable complexity, beauty, and sometimes darkness, tugs at us and calls us back, much like human relationships do.”

William Haandrikman, manager of  the winning hotel, said that being able to stay remembered among prominent hotels in established destinations shows that the Metropole is a trusted choice.

In October, the hotel emerged from the voting of more than 300,000 Conde Nast Traveler readers as the 21st best hotel in Asia. (Readers’ Choice Awards, RCA).

The magazine hailed the hotel for its spacious and richly appointed rooms, as a peaceful refuge and for service that goes above and beyond.

The magazine’s Gold Awards are more selective than the RCA. While eight hotels and resorts in Viet Nam were recognised in the RCAs, only two hotels in the country won placement on the Gold List – the Metropole and Park Hyatt Saigon. — VNS
