During and after the war years, it became a base for press and diplomats.
Heavily styled with French architecture, Sofitel Legend Metropole pleases the eye with classical white façade and green shutters. The most iconic place of the hotel must be La Terrasse café and restaurant set on a stone pavement on the first floor, outside of the building. With 364 rooms and suites, the hotel also aims to give the best price along with the best room quality. Extra facilities are various and interesting including La Boutique Du Metropole – the gift shop, L’Epicerie Du Metropole – the grocery store, Metropole Cooking Class, and luxury Limousine Service.
