Though it's not right in the heart of the action in Hanoi, you'd be insane to stay anywhere else! This is one of the most lovely chain hotels in a big city anywhere! It's located in the West Lake / Tay Ho neighborhood, which is expat central for Hanoi. Accordingly, there are lots of great restaurants and bars within walking distance. It's just a short, inexpensive cab ride to the Old Quarter or the business district. The rooms feel vintage, but they have every modern convenience: excellent linens, flat screen tv, spacious spa-like baths. The best, best part is that each room has a terrace with a comfortable table and chairs for your morning coffee or evening glass of wine. Definitely request a room that is in one of the outer buildings in the lake itself. Be sure to have a cocktail at their Sunset Bar, still one of my favorite spots in the whole city! The Intercon is a real oasis in Hanoi!
