Hilton Hanoi OperaBuilt in an architectural style that mimics the Opera House directly opposite, the crescent-shaped, beaux arts Hilton Hanoi Opera opened in 1999. Its location in Hanoi’s business district, just two blocks from Tran Quang Khai highway (from where it’s a quick 18-mile ride to Noi Bai International Airport), makes it in demand with the corporate crowd. The two-story lobby has floor-to-ceiling marble columns and a French crystal chandelier shaped like an inverted wedding cake. Rooms feature double-glazed windows that promise quiet, wool carpets, and bathrooms that have separate tubs and walk-in showers. Though elements of traditional Vietnamese design are evident, the overall effect is that of a business hotel. The markedly more impressive 1,200-square-foot Presidential Suite on the seventh floor has a dining room, kitchenette, marble bathroom with whirlpool tub, and sublime views of the Opera House. Expect similar vistas from the outdoor pool, which is heated in the winter.

Fresh Vietnamese cookery at Ba Mien
Visited here for a lovely luncheon featuring exceptional Vietnamese cuisine. Everything ordered was super fresh. Classics were presented very creatively, and each dish was special. Excellent service, too.
