Intercontinental Hanoi Westlake Review

In a tranquil setting, over-the-water pavilions house spacious rooms with balconies and great views of West Lake and Hanoi, helping guests feel removed from the urban bustle of the city center, even though the hotel is only a couple of miles from the old quarter and Hoan Kiem Lake. Luxury amenities include Bose sound systems and a choice of eight different styles of pillows. Family suites have an extra bedroom with bunks for children, who may enjoy the unique cooking class for kids. Although the hotel lacks an adequate spa, there's a large pool and well-stocked gym. An impressive breakfast buffet is served in a glass-walled restaurant, where you can watch fisherman just outside the window. A modern Vietnamese aesthetic, top-notch dining options, and a bar on a small island on the lake give the Intercontinental the relaxing and revitalizing vibe of an urban oasis.
