Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, has seen a surge in business travelers in the last decade as business opportunities in the country rapidly increase. A thriving city, Hanoi was recently named one of the “World’s Top Destinations of 2010” by Frommers, so potential foreign investors are sitting up and taking notice. With business trips to Hanoi now becoming common place, business hotels have begun popping up all over the city. They provide world-class accommodation, beautiful surroundings and high-tech facilities every business traveler will love, but these three are three of the best.
Hotel Nikko Hanoi – This 257 room luxury hotel is located in the center of Hanoi, overlooking a large park but close to the city business center, shopping and dining areas.
The hotel’s guest rooms have en suite baths, mini-bar, coffee and tea making facilities, in-room safe, bathrobe, hairdryer, and TV with satellite and, for Japanese business travelers, Japanese television programming.
The Hotel Nikko Hanoi has a large business center, complete with secretarial services, printing and photocopying services, conference rooms and can cater a buffet or sit-down luncheon or dinner for up to 140 people.
Entertain your clients at one of the hotel’s restaurants. The Tao-Li serves excellent Chinese cuisine, the Benkay is one of the best Japanese restaurants in the city or, if you prefer western food, La Brasserie offers French cuisine. The hotel also has a nice bar, perfect for evening cocktails or after dinner drinks.
You’ll find the Hotel Nikko Hanoi at 84 Tran Nhan Tong Street, Hanoi.
The Sofitel Plaza Hanoi – This five-star business hotel has the perfect location in Hanoi. Near the Red River and Hanoi’s Old Quarter, you can be in the city’s business district in five minutes, or spend your free time walking around Hanoi’s beautiful lake and shopping in the Old Quarter.
Each of the 317 rooms has floor to ceiling windows, giving guests an incredible view of downtown Hanoi. Each room has free Wi-Fi internet, an LCD television with satellite, mini bar, in-room safe and you’ll even find a fruit basket upon your arrival. Higher level rooms even include a free hour’s use per day of a conference room, free coffee, tea and evening cocktails and complimentary laundry services.
The hotel’s business center provides world-class business facilities, conferencing facilities and dining for up to 500 people and two restaurants and three bars that are lovely places to entertain business associates.
The Sofitel Plaza Hanoi is at 1 Thanh Nien Road , Ba Dinh District, Hanoi.
Indochina 1 Hotel – This Hanoi business hotel is much lower priced than the other two hotels but offers phenomenal service, accommodations and facilities, and receives rave reviews from all its business traveler guests.
The hotel is located right in the center of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, so you can step out of the front door and be right in the thick of it. The Indochina 1 is a small hotel, with only 30 guest rooms, which means they offer the best personalized service and are known for their friendly and exceedingly helpful staff.
Guest rooms feature large bathrooms with both shower and tub, in-room Wi-Fi, mini bar, flatscreen TV with cable, tea and coffee making facilities, DVD and CD players and trouser press. Each room has a large work area and direct dial telephones. Room rates include a superb buffet breakfast and a daily newspaper.
If entertaining clients, the Indochina 1 Hotel is within a two minute walk of many of Hanoi’s top restaurants, cafes and bars, or you can have an evening cocktail at the hotel’s bar.
You’ll find the Indochina 1 Hotel, just a five minute walk from Hoan Kiem Lake, at 13-15 Au Trieu Street, Hanoi.
