Reviewed 29 June 2014

What a great 5 day trip at this most wonderfully set hotel in Hanoi. Nestled out of the hustle and bustle of the city on the west lake is this superb hotel. From the time we arrived to the time we left, the quality of service, friendliness of staff, facilities, cleanliness, warmth of hotel management, was truly amazing. This made our stay truly unforgettable.

This hotel has everything a family of 4 needs. We had connecting rooms 643 and 641, peacefully set on the lake front. Truly a resort with lots of facilities. Excellent restaurants on site, and fine in-room dining. Breakfast and Dinner buffer caters for all types of needs.

The warmth and friendliness of all staff was exceptional. Super helpful, very obliging, communicative, resourceful and very child friendly. It was a happy place!

If you see a General Manager, cleaning up tables, folding napkins, taking the time to talk to you and your kids....throughout the visit....then you know this place is special....and emphasis on service excellence is number 1!

It was great to comeback to a nice relaxing environment after visiting a very busy Hanoi City.
We woke up each morning super rested.

We were recommended Ha Long Bay day trip for a very reasonable price after we checked prices on internet and the city tour agencies. Had a great guide (local Vietnamese) who spoke perfect English and explained in detail different historical events, places, sites and areas of significance. Out driver was very safe and responsible.

Room Tip: Rooms 641 and 643 are very quiet and great views.

The hotel and its service is brilliant. WiFi is free but not as fast as lower star hotels in Saigon. Good location and excellent concierge tips.
Beware though that everything else at this hotel is pricey. Having breakfast and a few drinks basically doubled our room rate bill.

This hotel is unique in Hanoi, it is a resort that you would not normally find in a city. If you are interested in lounging around the pool all day and other resort activities, then this hotel is great. If you prefer to explore Hanoi, it is not within walking distance of areas such as the old town and French quarter, which is where most other five star hotels are. Although, taxis are cheap and easy to get.

The rooms are big and well appointed. Service is excellent. There are good bars and restaurants at the hotel. Nice swimming pool. Very hard to fault this place.

This is probably best hotel to stay in Hanoi a.Staff is extremely polite and more than willing to help. part of hotel rooms are over west lake Hanoi so view is breath taking.Food at restaurant is excellent and reasonably priced for 5* hotel ,I guess its true for Vietnam in general .most surprising is exchange rate offered by hotel for local currency ,unlike other hotels who try to make money on cross currency rates this one gives rates which are closest to bank rates .

Room Tip: Always book room with over water pavillion

Just stayed two nights with whole family (2 adults + 3 kids under 12 yrs) and really enjoyed the stay in this great hotel. Since we arrived till we left the hotel, personnel's service was excellent. Always with great attitude and nice smile give really good image of hotel's team. And not just an image, but the service was simply super!

We stayed in the 2 bedroom residence room in the last "island", and we really recommend those rooms to make your stay very pleasant. The location of the hotel is ok, few restaurants and shops around and just 10 minutes taxi drive to the centre of Hanoi. Water park was a positive surprise for us! We expected less reading previous comments, but kids really liked that and being almost only foreigners you feel funny. :)

We had lunches and dinners outside of the hotel in few places, but we also recommend to try & taste hotel's own dinner buffet. Lobsters on the table were nice & tasty! ;)

During our stay hotel even solved one cheating case of the taxi. This taxi was taken in the front of the hotel, and the personnel took this case really seriously, found the driver and returned the cheated money next day.

Once just positive things! :) Thanks for IC Hanoi for the good job - and hopefully see you soon once again!

I arrive at the hotel 8.00 am after flight from UK. Staff were amazing. My double room was not ready so they upgraded me to a twin lake view room ready immediately. Fantastic room over the water with super views of the lake. That night there was a bad storm so ate in the hotel. Great food, had soft shell crabs. The hotel manager came round to see if everyone was okay given the weather. Grounds swimming pool and open-air bar all excellent. A lovely quiet retreat from the husstle of Hanoi. Certainly would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on "stilts" over the water. Look out for the vietnameses swimming and fishi...

Stayed three nights in Hanoi and chose to visit the InterContinental again. The property is stunning and offers a resort feel, while being located a short ride away from the Old Quarter. As an Ambassador member, my loyalty was recognized and the rooms are well appointed and was facing Westlake, with stunning views during sunset. I also chose to get Club Access which was great to start the day and end with a few drinks.

What was most exceptional was the service delivered by the team. I felt very welcomed by Nga in the Club Lounge and her team did a great job. Also I can't thank the concierge team (Xuan and Hue) enough for making my stay memorable, by recommending some fantastic restaurants and cafes out of the beaten path. Special mention to Xuan who recommended a little gem in the centre of town called Ca Phe Pho Co at 11 Hang Gai. Make sure you ask the concierge how to find it!

overall a great stay and I will surely be back.

Room Tip: Book a room with Club access, it's great value and offers a great place to relax and unwind.
