The hotel overlooks the lake, which is surrounded by some of the best upscale shopping the city has to offer. Walk around the lake to see sights like the mythological Turtle Tower, names for the giant turtle that still lives in the lake’s murky waters. There’s also the Ngoc Son Temple, an old temple near the edge of the lake that visitors can reach on a footbridge. Go a short distance west of the lake to find the striking Temple of Literature, which has ornate architecture and beautifully kept grounds. Not too far from here, you’ll find the iconic Communist site of the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.
The hotel lobby comes with upscale furnishings, including an enormous chandelier and a grand piano. Apricot Hotel is a short walk from some of Hanoi’s best-reviewed restaurants.
