What a brilliant hotel!! Few other hotels in the world can have the heritage of this place. You can feel the history oozing from this place. Also perfect service and style. Hard to beat. Perfect location in the middle of the old French quarter.

Very nice architecture with the new wings blending in nicely into the historic side. Very close to the lake and the buzzing centre of Hanoi and still feels like a tranquil haven once inside. Beautiful inner court yard to relax at the pool, have a predinner drink or even enjoy a meal.
Nice rooms. Different restaurant options all with good breakfast buffets. Teh concierge and his team can arrange most excursions. We enjoyed it and surely would return on our next visit to hanoi.

Room Tip: try to stay in rooms overlooking inner court

Great hotel, with an old and new wing (later one I heard is very charming). French influence which is fitting for the country. Feels like a trip back in time. Great and varied breakfast. Very nice experience.

Whoa I must say this hotel was one of the very best hotel experiences I've ever had. Everything was top notch! Needless to say about the service and staff – they are excellent. The architecture was beautiful. It has vast history and has this colonial feel. For me, the history this hotel portraits is better than some of the museums! I should also mention the restaurants are great and the bar angelina has great drinks.

Room Tip: We stayed at the opera wing (the newer version). It's very nice and posh. The historic wing look...

A beautiful traditional French hotel in the heart of Hanoi. Excellent food, a good selection of wine, beautiful spa and outdoor central pool for relaxation after sight seeing in balmy Hanoi. A 10 minute walk to the old quarter. Rooms are more expensive than others in Hanoi, roughly western prices or a bit more, but we think it was worth the money to be able to escape the chaotic Hanoi streets. You can spend up on wines, spa treatments and the French bakery if you're not into the local Pho. A mix of older couples, families and a few younger couples. Highly recommended - I would definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Opera Wing Superior Room 4th floor. It looked down to the central pool / restaurant...

This is without doubt one of the best hotel experiences that I've ever had if not the best! The history, the surroundings, the service, the incredible atmosphere, wow! On top of all this we were lucky to be upgrated which made our stay even more awesome (if possible). Unfortunately we only had one night at this hotel and I'm already dreaming of going back. This is an oasis in the middle of the fantastic city of Hanoi, and it is highly recommendable! Make sure you book the historical tour around the hotel, including a visit to the bunker underneath the bar/pool area previously used as a bomb shelter.

The grandeur and romance of a bygone era faithfully recreated in this historic hotel, with modern creature comforts seamlessly blended in. Everywhere you look in the hotel, the architecture and decor take you back to the golden age of the great European hotels in the colonial era. The service of the staff in pretty Vietnamese dresses exemplifies the gentle and friendly nature of the locals. I and my wife spent a leisurely afternoon in the Club bar (very French and very chic), with a view of the pool in the shade in a sunny and hot afternoon, sipping cool drinks and soaking up the ambiance. We did not get to try the French restaurant in the hotel, which is supposed to be one of the best in Hanoi. The buffet breakfast was not bad but local delicacies were under represented. Overall, this is an extremely impressive hotel in the same class as Raffles in Singapore and Peninsula in Hong Kong. Arguable the best remaining colonial style hotel in this part of Asia. Highly recommended.
