The hotel is very nice and service is very good. Room are not that large but very nice and well equipped. There’s a nice swimming pool, a gym room and a very nice rooftop at 11th floor. The view on the lake in front of hotel is wonderful especially by night.
Superb hotel in wonderful location opposite the beautiful Hoan Kiem Lake.[See photo] The Apricot offers 5 Star accommodation and a staff willing to do all they can to make your stay both enjoyable and rewarding. I have stayed here several times and as a travel photographer it is a great base for exploring Northern Vietnam. The management and staff are simply amazing and I cannot thank them enough for all their help. Nothing is too much trouble and I hope soon to return to this great hotel, the perfect resting place in this fantastic country.
Location is great (heart of Old Quarter) and the hotel (and rooms) are well maintained and very clean. The staff is extremely helpful, attentive and friendly (special shout out to Justin!) - we enjoyed our stay very much. Highly recommend!
Arrived late in the evening on Oct 30, 2022 with a private car pickup at the airport and drove to the hotel where the staff was waiting to check us in. Check-in was quick and effortless which was welcome due to our long travel day. The lobby of the hotel is gorgeous and lavishly appointed with large crystal chandeliers and comfortable furniture. We had booked a smaller room and were given room #405. It was pretty small and had no view from the window but still had a king bed which was very comfortable. The room was nicely decorated, and the bathroom was done in white marble. The shower was glass on both sides to allow light into the room with a blind you could lower if needed. Once in bed, we immediately fell asleep looking forward to exploring the city the next day. In the morning, we went down to the second floor for the breakfast buffet which is included in your room price. We were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by friendly servers and staff. We were escorted to a nice table and asked if we wanted coffee. Of course we ordered Vietnamese coffees which arrived piping hot a few minutes later. The buffet included a delicious assortment of fresh fruits, salad station, pastries, a hot line of entrees, a dim sum station and Pho station. We sampled a bit of everything and enjoyed it all. After exploring the immediate area around the hotel that morning, we returned to the hotel to check out the roof top pool and terrace. The pool is covered and large and there is lots of deck space for lounging. It appears that the roof top also doubles as a discotheque/club on weekend nights. There is a large DJ booth and full bar up there as well. The Spa is locatedon this level as well but we didn't take advantage of any of the treaments there. The terrace outside opens up to a great view of the lake and cityscape looking east. We stayed three nights here before moving on to Ha Long bay. The staff was on point the whole time. Housekeeping was immaculate and friendly! Front desk was always willing to help with anything you may need including changing $$ to Dong! (Be sure your larger US bills are crisp, with no tears or writing on them). We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Ha Noi and would recommend the Apricot Hotel to anyone passing through.…
Great hotel in a very convenient location. Plenty of restaurants near by. You can see the Hoan Kiem lake from the front of the hotel. Room is a good size. It's a bit dated but very clean and comfortable. Service was excellent and all the staff I dealt with are friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet has a large selection of Western and Asian food.
Out of all the hotels we stayed across Vietnam this had the least welcoming feel we received from staff. We felt our greeting upon arrival was rushed, we did not get any welcome drinks as you would normally expect, we had to go back to reception and ask for this. The accomodation was so small we had no space to open our luggage, if opening curtains people across lifts can see right inside our room. Wifi did not work and also had issues with lift. Overall very expensive hotel we did not feel worth value.
Apricot was our best error. We were looking for a different hotel but coincidentally we arrived there and we decided stay there. it was our best experience in Hanoi. Apricot has very good location, is very nice hotel, staff very kind, is located in front of a lake Den Ngoc son and close to everything. I loved staying there
We love this beautiful and timeless hotel! Our first time to Hanoi and we felt so welcomed and looked after, the service was outstanding and every single staff member was so helpful and kind. Our room was perfect and was cosy and cool and very comfortable. We truely loved our time at the apricot hotel and in Hanoi
Good Boutique hotel located just opposite to the lake. Building is well kept. Reception staff is good. Rooms are well kept. Comfortable. Well kept maximum amenities. Just the Kettle and tea supplies were missing. But the minibar was well kept. Looks good like boutique. Buffet breywas good and good number fruits were kept. Nice hotel but price could have been more less.
This hotel and its staff must be the best one in Hanoi, and great location. I highly recommend .In fact, we were so impressed, we came back again after our visit to Sapa. We liked the central location, the lake and the old town.
