Sofitel Plaza Hotel*****

Our brief comments: The Sofitel Plaza Hotel
The Sofitel Plaza towers over Tay Ho, Hanoi's largest lake. The building is striking - twenty
storeys zigzag down the facade providing good views from all rooms.

The stunning 360° panorama of the city and the Red River from the Summit Lounge on the top of the hotel more than compensates for the five-minute taxi ride to the town centre.

Ming Palace Cantonese and Vietnamese restaurantThe reception and lounge area is wide and spacious, with a comfortable bar area regularly displaying paintings and other artworks by local artists.

The Brasserie Westlake, the hotel's international restaurant, is opposite the reception desk. An escalator to the first floor takes guests to the Ming Palace Restaurant on a stylishly arranged mezzanine floor. It serves Cantonese and Vietnamese cuisines.

Deluxe room with MyBedFive fast lifts lead to the guest rooms and serviced apartments. Unusually, views from most rooms are not allocated by category - even numbers overlook the lake, and odd numbers look out over the Red River. Executive and Suite rooms have both.

The immediate impression upon entering a room in the Sofitel Plaza is a feeling of calmness and relaxed comfort, thanks to a cleverly coordinated colour scheme of tans and ochre tints.Westlake Brasserie

All rooms have the luxurious Sofitel 'MyBeds'. At Deluxe standard and above, bathrooms have a well-designed standing shower cubicle as well as a bath.

One would expect to find a good fitness centre in five star hotel. However, the Plaza goes further with a large outdoor swimming pool with Vietnam's only retractable roof enabling all year round bathing. Adjacent is the Garden Café providing health oriented drinks and snacks.
