- Built by the Vietnamese in 1995 and patronized mostly by Taiwanese and Koreans ever since, this luxurious establishment stands on the west bank of Giang Vo Lake. Rooms are spacious, functional and free from unnecessary clutter. A tam bau (traditional musical instrument with 36 strings) plays over speakers, calmly filling the corridors with its oriental charm. Le Quoc Viet, the rooms division manager, is the man you should talk to if you want to hire Hanoi's only stretch-limousine, which sits majestically at the hotel entrance.
