Situated at the outskirt of Hanoi's old quarters, it is easily accessible to places of interest. Getting to the airport is a breeze with main roads linking to expressways. Stayed here for 3 nights and I booked a room with river view overlooking WestLake. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. This hotel has one of the best lounge in Hanoi. The Summit lounge located at the 20th floor of this hotel has one of the most amazing view and selection of drinks and food are very good. Rooms are large in size and it has a all-year siwmming pool with an adjustable roof that closes when the weather is too hot or too cold.
Getting to places of interest requires a taxi ride and it is easy to get a taxi here as there are parked at the lobby. Note that only Mai Linh and Hanoi taxi are reputable in Hanoi city, assuming that there are large taxi companies and do not overcharge. This hotel only allows Hanoi taxi so you know that you will not be overcharged when getting around town. Taxi fares to old quarters cost around VND 70,000 to VND 90,000 which is pretty affordable.
Transportation to Ha Long Bay was a breeze where the bus from the cruise company came to the hotel and picked us up in the morning. Another couple which stayed further away from us was not given free transportation although we are on the same cruise. I am assuming Sofitel is the furthest hotel that they will pick even though cruise website states 'hotels around old quarters'.
Overall, a very memorable stay and recommended to 1st timers in Hanoi who wants to stay slightly further away from the hustle and bustle of old quarters.
