“historic hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stayed here for three nights recently en route to Siem Reap. The building is beautiful and its history interesting (the free tour including the bomb shelter is worth doing). Our room was in the newer Opera wing and although it was elegantly decorated it was small. The shower was over the bath so would be tricky to get into for many people. My husband had previously stayed in the old wing and said it was much more spacious. Our room rate included the breakfast buffet which was excellent. I would stay here again but would probably opt for the old wing.

Room Tip: New wing rooms are small.

The best part of our 6 day vacation in Hanoi and Ha Long Bay was the time we spent here.
Rich with history and a beautiful atmosphere.

We upgraded our stay to include massages every day and it was well worth it. Beautiful spa and very well staffed.

Even if you do not stay here, you should join the hotel tour.

Room Tip: Try to stay in the old section of the hotel and take the hotel tour.

We are on a return trip to Vietnam and could not resist to come back to this legendary hotel. There is little you can say that whilst the price is high, the people, the food the ambience and the history is worth the experience. Will come back again. The only disappointment were the other travellers, the staff were invisible to them and they are part off the experience. They beam if you greet them with a simple hello in Vietnamese and the our experience even better.

Stayed here for 3 nights on our way to Siem Reap. Stayed in the new wing and the room although not large was comfortable.The hotel is one of the more expensive in Hanoi , however the location and services are worth the extra. Our rate included free breakfast which was very good. The pool area is really nice and the bar at the pool is a welcome spot at the end of a day out. The gym is excellent and has good equipment, free water , fruit juice , fruit and Carman muesli bars if you need a snack after a workout.
We ate at the bar area one night and food was good,on the last night ate in the Club and enjoyed the jazz singer.
Ensure you do the hotel history which includes the air raid shelter, after visiting the "Hanoi Hilton" where American airmen where incarcerated it was interesting to see the view from a bomb shelter.
Really enjoyed my stay and will be back
Staff were excellent

The hotel lived up to its high reputation! From the moment you arrive till you checkout - it is quality all the way. The head concierge is truly professional. The breakfast was of very high standard and to be able to get the local taste of Vietnam was especially rewarding in a top rate hotel. The rooms were impeccable - we had interconnecting suites. Very well appointed. Amenities and housekeeping were of the highest international standard.
The bunker tour of the hotel was well crafted and most enjoyable. Expensive..........but value for money!
