                          Getting there.

                          The Noi Bai International Airport lies just 35km north of the city center. Taxis are available outside the exit. There are also public buses that run from the airport to the city center. The trip lasts for about an hour.

                          Getting around.

                          The quick and safe way to get around is by taxis. However, cyclos or pedicabs are cheaper. For fun, you can ride on the back of motorbikes. Buses in Hanoi are quite fast and comfortable. There are 60 bus lines that connect the entire city.

                            Beautiful old world charm. Immaculately presented, very helpful staff & great facilities. Restaruants are great, especially the french one. Location is close to alot of historic sites as it is in the old French quarter of Hanoi and close to Hoan Kiem lake. Would recommend to all that are looking for a relaxing holiday or there on business.

                            The hotel is renovating one of it's bars behind the pool, however it doesn't really detract from the overall experience of this charming hotel. There was a little noise during the day though from the builders, but most of the time I was either out exploring or by the pool with a beer and was too relaxed to care.

                            The concept of two hotels in one was wonderful and it was a pleasure to see the ladies in their beautiful Ao Dai traditional dresses. Concierge services were very effecient and the hotel arranged all kinds of transport- rickshaw rides, taxis etc were easily arranged.

                            On my last morning I stopped to eat breakfast at one of the restaurants and ordered pancakes ...and was quite taken aback to see both the poor quality and presentation of a basic breakfast item. The other thing i would like to point out is that a steward named Toh near the pool offered to arrange a car for us to a trip to the nearby villages- he said the hotel was Ok with him doing this service. The driver who drove us to the villages was constantly talking on the cell phone and driving single handedly which made us very uncomfortable. He also didnt know the roads. He was supposed to drop us to the airport the next morning and he didnt show up! I would recommend the hotel discourage their staff from offering such services.

                            Our stay at the Hotel Sofitel was wonderful. It was great to stay in a historic hotel which still kept up with some traditions (i.e. candle lighting). We also enjoyed the bunker tour.

                            The Sofitel encompasses Hanoi's charm. It is in the heart of the city within easy walking distance to all the main attractions. The food is superb and the rooms whilst small (old wing) very romantic. It is an oasis of luxury in the mids of chaotic Hanoi and probably the nicest place to dine in the evenings.

                            The staff seem to be a little bit up themselves. Unlike the usual hospitality one experiences in Vietnam the staff are arrogant and overall not very friendly. Beware the swimming pool is more of a 'pond' feature rather than an actual swimming pool. The pictures are deceptive, it is right on the footsteps of a busy bar/ restaurant and it is unlikely you will feel comfortable swimming unless it is very early in the morning.

                            A truly wonderful historic hotel.

                            Only my room facing a wall, a little claustrophobic

                            The hotel is really nice but the price is outrageous compared to other luxury hotels in southeast Asia. My wife paid half the price in Bangkok for the Lebua hotel and the room was three times as big... and breakfast was included. We are paying 55$ for a huge room with great service in Hoi An. The price would be justified if the hotel was exceptional... but it's just nice.

                            It is very expensive, compared to anything else in Vietnam. It has Western prices. Room slightly on the small side.

                            Luxurious without being elitist. The staff were friendly and approachable and we felt very comfortable. Excellent having the historian giving tours of the hotel and bomb shelter.

                            The restaurants and wine were a bit excessive in price given that Vietnam in whole was extremely cheap to wine and dine. We experienced the Michelin Star Chef but not overly impressed with the food and therefore the price seemed excessive.
