Business Traveler (USA) - - COVER STORY -

Im­me­di­ately upon en­ter­ing the strik­ing lobby of this MGallery Col­lec­tion ho­tel, it is ap­par­ent that you are in an ex­tra­or­di­nary prop­erty. Quirky vin­tage-style dé­cor is com­bined with bold state­ment pieces to cre­ate an at­mos­phere of flam­boy­ant and bou­tique lux­ury. Lo­cated in the mid­dle of Hanoi near Hoan Kiem

Lake, this is both a prac­ti­cal and in­dul­gent choice that de­liv­ers an ex­pe­ri­ence well worth the price tag. Fa­cil­i­ties: The rooms are dec­o­rated with sump­tu­ous fab­rics such as silk and vel­vet, and con­trast dark, moody tones with splashes of bright color. Free WiFi is sup­plied through­out, and lap­tops can be con­nected to the flat-screen TV from your bed­side. For down­time, there is a gym and an in­door swim­ming pool with an open-air ter­race fac­ing the Hanoi Opera House. Meet­ing and events sa­lons fol­low the same bou­tique style – a mem­o­rable venue for meet­ings.

F&B: Café Lautrec in the atrium is good for light meals while the deca­dent Sa­tine and La Fee Verte á Hanoi make up the ho­tel’s fine­din­ing con­tin­gent.

Price: A deluxe room starts at $145, ex­clud­ing taxes, with no cancellations or changes al­lowed.

Con­tact: 29 Trang Tien Street, Hoan Kiem Dis­trict, Hanoi, tel +84 4 6282 5555, hotelde­l­opera.com
