Hanoi's Old Quarter is a noisy and bustling place all day and evening, so if you'd rather find a quiet base for your stay, consider this huge, well-equipped hotel on the shores of West Lake. All rooms have great views from the balconies, but the suites are particularly appealing as they are perched right out over the water and offer a bit more privacy. Rooms are decorated with dark timber, cream walls, and vibrant artwork. As you'd expect from this well-known hotel chain, there are plenty of facilities like restaurants and bars; in fact, the Sunset Bar is one of the most popular spots in the city to enjoy a sundowner. Service is generally swift and courteous, and the city's main sights are just a short ride away.
