Hilton Hanoi Opera
Travel Blogs from Hanoi
Today is Conference Day - I attended the conference this morning with Glynnis then after lunch took a bit of a walk by myself. However I didn't get very far as crossing the roads here is a bit daunting and its not that much fun traipsing around by yourself not knowing where you are going and not wanting to go to far. UI figured if I got run over no …

Today we discovered the Hanoi Hilton. We ate lunch, took tea and had cocktails. They also have complimentary wireless internet in the lobby, lounges and bars here, so I took the opportunity to visit www.thenewhanoian.com
This is a very useful "expat" website that rates, ranks and reviews bars, restaurants, hotels, services and stores in Hanoi. …
After three days slumming it in hostels it was time for another tatse of luxury - thiis time in the Hanoi Hilton hotel. Can you believe it! There can't be many better kicks than blagging a room at a five star hotel on the grounds of writing a travel article, even if a genuine blag.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Hanoi Opera
During a recent wedding anniversary trip we stayed, when in Hanoi, at the Hilton Opera Hotel, where I had been twice before, on business. This hotel must surely rate as one of the best in the world, in terms of location as well as amenities and service; its one and only drawback being that it is perhaps becoming somewhat too pricey for tourists (internet service for example is provided at a rather steep half a dollar a minute). The rooms, however, are spacious and well-equipped, and the hotel staff is without question the most professional in all Vietnam. The buffet breakfast is simply stupendous, and all the major sights and attractions of Hanoi are within walking distance. Try to get a room with a view of the Opera if you can. A major advantage is the hotel's double glazing, which together with its location makes it virtually soundproof against Hanoi's busy (and early!) rush hour traffic in the morning. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good night's sleep and a haven of rest from Hanoi's incessantly busy streets.
I enjoyed my stay here at this hotel. It was in a great location. The gym was very modern and had all the amenities.
I stayed at the Hanoi Hotel for twelve nights during a solo trip to Vietnam. I stayed on the executive floor which cost an extra $35 per night but was definitely worth it; pleasant quiet lounge with attentive service and free snacks in the afternoon and substantial nibbles and free alcoholic drinks during the evening. I found the room service and general hotel staff to be exceptionally pleasant and efficient. I had a room overlooking the opera house and enjoyed swimming in the outdoor heated pool, even in December! I have generally found Hilton Hotels to be very middle of the road but this is an exception. I have stayed in many four and five star hotels throughout the world and would say that this is one of the best. I would stay here again without hesitation should I go to Hanoi again.
I visited Hanoi in October 2005, primarily on business but with a little time to spend exploring the town.
As stated in the review below, the Hilton Opera is very centrally located in Hanoi and looks lovely from the outside. The inside is better suited for the corporate traveler (comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, good buffet breakfast) but had little atmosphere. I traveled solo to Hanoi and would have preferred to either splurge on the Sofitel Metropole which is absolutely beautiful (and you can book it at a discounted rate through many of the local travel agents) or a lower priced hotel such as the Guoman. The staff was nice at the Hilton but again, I felt it was suited for the corporate traveler rather than the tourist. If I was to go back, I am pretty certain I would stay at the Sofitel Metropole.
Executive floor brilliant value
The Hilton Opera is very centrally located in Hanoi and looks lovely from the outside. Inside is a bit corporate but still good and the rooms, although not huge, are better than hilton in the UK. There is a nice outdoor pool and live music in the bar that is actually very good. Prices for drinks etc are very reasonable. It is definitely worth booking a room on the Executive floors (6&7) to get access to the Executive lounge. Here they have free internet access and serve drinks and snacks throughout the day. From 6pm-8pm is happy hour where wine, spirits and soft drinks are served freely with lovely hors d'ouvres. This is a really pleasant way to start the evening. Hanoi is very charming although a bit of a culture shock at first.
used HANOI as a base for most of the 23 days my wife and i were in vietnam. booked Hilton Hanoi Opera through (---) and got best possible rates: $100 plus 15% not including breakfast for an executive double.
Luxurious hotel in the heart of Hanoi
This is a very grand hotel, which is located in the city center. About a 15 minute walk to the lake. Our room had a wonderful view of the Hanoi Opera house. The room was very comfortable and had a luxurious bathroom. Wonderful breakfast buffet full of wonderful French pastries. They have a nice spa and gym, unfortunately the pool is quite small.
They have a tour desk, which can assist you with any plans to Halong Bay, the Perfume Pagoda or other sites. There are trishaw drivers on site,which will take you all around the city.
Great stay with lovely pool
We booked a flights / accom package from HK and stayed at this hotel for about 4 nights.
We found it a really lovely hotel with spacious rooms, a great pool (it wasn't busy during all the times we went down for a swim) with a lively bar. Good location - a short walk to the lake and some other sights. Though cabs are pretty cheap to catch.
They also had a spa where you can have a massage, a manicure or pedicure etc which was pretty nice.
I would recommend it.
Of all the Sheraton's, Mariott's, Shangri La's and other Hilton's that I've stayed in, the room decor here was by far the nicest, and it was all topped off by an incredibly comfortable bed. Inside of the hotel they have a sports bar and two restaurants, which offer very tastey food. The lobbey is impressive and they have a lovely string quartet that plays nightly. There is an exotissimo tour agency right in the lobbey that offers some very nice tours (Please do go see Ha Long Bay if you visit Hanoi). While I took the tours offered by exotissimo in house, they're quite pricey and you can get the same tour by an outside company for a fraction of the cost.
