Nestled in the Old Quarter, just steps from the iconic Hanoi Opera House, the Bill Bensley-designed hotel features 47 themed rooms and suites, ranging from 35m2 to 194m2. Crowning the hotel, four Opera Suites open out onto alfresco terraces overlooking the tree-lined avenues below.

Diva’s Lounge, meanwhile, serves up bohemian cocktails and Opera Punches, accompanied by Diva’s Bar bites. Guests can unwind at Auriga Spa featuring couples’ treatment suites, saunas, steam baths, a fitness centre and La Grotta, an indoor pool that resembles a haven for opera singers to rest their voices.
