A part of the Accor group of hotels, Hanoi's newest luxury boutique hotel is possibly one of the nicest places to stay in. With a sophisticated modern design that has elements of Hanoi's French colonial past, the interiors are theatrical more than anything else. With large, comfortable, tastefully decorated rooms and equally fancy bathrooms, this stylish place comes at a price but is worth every penny. The location is perfect too - it is nestled between the Opera House and the Hoan Kiem Lake. The excellent service is the icing on the cake. The rates begin from about 150 USD for a night and WiFi is complimentary (and fast). Visit www.mgallery.com for more information and bookings.
