InterContinental Hanoi Westlake is the best hotel of the Intercontinental chain I have visited so far. I booked the "Arrive with style" package, a woman waited for me at the airport just to bring me to a black limousine driving me to the hotel. At the arrival, my documents were prepared and a concierge explained me the hotel. The room was new, spotless clean and I liked the interiour design. Just to give you an impression, next to the bed there is a pillow menu where I could choose your favourite pillow out of 8 different styles.
The breakfast buffet is amazing and has continental and local choices. Try the Pho Bo soup, you will love it. The staff at the buffet is amazing, I just needed to look at the orange juice and they asked me if I want some more.
The hotel is not in the center but build as a resort at the west lake which guarantees a better air and a silent stay.
A taxi ride to the city center takes 15min and costs exactly (2013-04-29) 15200VND which is 7.30 USD.
My special thanks to the concierge service Ms Thu Le Nguyen and Ms Nguyen Diep Anh, I wanted to know something about typical Cafes in Hanoi center and they found some great ones for me. Thank you!
