In the cultural and scenic hub of Hanoi in a neighborhood characteristically anchored in French colonial architecture, the design brings to life the glamour of that era. At three stories at street side and then stepping back to seven, the architecture sits gently and respectfully with its neighbors.
A uniform of columns-pilasters grace the façade with arch bays which open to a discreet entrance protected by a metal and glass canopy. The feel is of a grand private residence at the right address, offering intimacy from the bustling street life.
The setback of the seven stories allows for terraces to suites and French wrought iron balconies to guest rooms which take in the serene lake view. Adding to the charm in the design are the top floor rooms with dormer windows to the slate-stone mansard roof.
The romantic and dramatic guest journey is to the top of the hotel with its incredible views. Lifted up and out of the hum of the city below, pavilions, terraces and gardens are designed to offer a haven and retreat making the rooftop a destination in itself.
