High glass but guests dont feel the hanoi heat. It gives a very airy feel. Food choices is very extensive. The korean section is quite popular for breakfast. I noticed the selection does not change much for the 3 days i stayed here. Juices are varied. On the 3rd day, we saw someone that looked like vietnamese ice coffee. When... More

Reasonable chain hotel. They do try and give a local feel, but it feels more like window dressing then a real embracing of their locale. My friend stayed here and I joined him. Not the place's fault but it is a very long schlep from the city. Food was average but with great service. Not really much to add, it's... More

Great atmosphere and design of the restaurant. Surrounded by floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gardens and artificial lake. Food is of very high standard. Korean food is absolutely delicious on the buffet same as the rest of the food. A nice place to relax on a Sunday.

By the numbers. Nothing really bad, but not much spark. The view from the windows though is spectacular, the eggs cooked right. Tables and chairs need some redoing, a bit wobbly, and a light musty smell.

Am I right to say that 90% of the tables have a window view? Yeah, I like the huge amount of natural light, and overlooking the lake. The spread is truly sumptuous. To my delight, they even have Korean Jigae (kimchi soup served in hotpot) for breakfast. The Japanese spread is just as excellent. You gotta come with a big... More
