Check in: Lotte Hotel, Hanoi


Hanoi’s new Lotte tower, located between the old quarter and its business centre, is the Vietnamese capital’s second highest skyscraper. And from its 33rd to 64th floors sits the city’s latest five-star hotel. This is the South Korean hotelier’s second Vietnam property and first in Hanoi, offering what it claims to be an ‘elegant and modern feel’ with epic views out over the city.

The rooms
Each of its 235 rooms and 83 suites are designed with subtle Vietnamese influences. The Deluxe rooms are generous in size, between 452sq ft and 472sq ft, and include a flat screen TV, luxurious marble bathrooms with full bath and shower facilities and complimentary internet. For those after the ultimate luxury getaway, the 3,540sq ft royal suite includes a Jacuzzi overlooking the city. Lotte’s bedding system includes Hungarian goose down duvets and even a pillow menu with a selection of five pillows to guarantee a good night’s sleep.

The facilities
As well as its 24-hour gym, outdoor pool, sauna and an indoor golf driving range, the hotel is also home to the Evian spa, seeing to it that your de-stressing needs are catered for. There is a wide range of dining options on offer with a bakery and four restaurants including a rooftop modern brasserie restaurant and even a Tim Ho Wan for those missing home. Two bars and lounges will allow you to unwind at the end of a long day.

The bottom line
Merely a 90-minute journey from HK, Hanoi is perfect for a quick break and Lotte’s new outpost makes sure it’s a luxurious one. The hotel offers outstanding service and unparalleled views of the city to tourists and business travellers alike.
