My boyfriend and I live in Hanoi and have spent a few evenings watching the sun set and the city light up from the rooftop of the Sofitel Summit Lounge. It's quite expensive, but nice for a special occasion or to show off the views to visitors. And the views really are spectacular. The staff is very helpful - in... More

I was told I couldn't order a pineapple juice, because they don't sell juice after 8 p.m. It's not like I was ordering fresh squeezed juice that they had to make, and they still have pineapple juice available for mixed drinks, so I didn't understand why they refused to sell it to me. I asked what non-alcoholic drinks were available,... More

i chose this bar for 2017 New Year count down party, and make my booking through their Facebook fan page, they respond quickly with package detail which i think is a good bargain: around USD$40/person (including all tax and service charge) come with 3 drinks and some finger food, if you book early (i book around 2 weeks ahead), they...

I expected the prices to be exorbitant here however I found them to be quite normal (for Australians such as us). We had a few cocktails and some food whilst watching the sunset and lavishing in the expanse of Hanoi. The staff were lovely but the food took some time to come out. We spend a few hours here enjoying... More

I visited this place with my close friends. Unlike the general places in Hanoi, this place is not noisy. You can enjoy quality foods and drinks in a nice mood. Please visit during the night.

After our sunset visit to Chua Tran Quoc, we decided to go for Happy Hours at Summit Lounge, Sofitel Hotel. We walked towards the tallest building nearby but it turned out to be the Pan Pacific hotel. Puzzled, we told the Concierge that we were going to the Summit Lounge and he pointed us to the correction direction; = to... More

This was a dispointing experience. We ordered Love Valley, Mango Lassie and Planter's Punch and they tasted not good at all, especially the Planter's Punch. The staffs weren't warm and professional even though I was really nice to them. I don't want to come back here anymore :(

We arrived minutes before the red sunset sank into Hanoi across the lake. Although we took a good seat, the helpful staff ushered us to a better, couch seat, front row to the marvelous sunset. Swan boats on the lake below and the line of traffic snaking toward Uncle Ho's Mausoleum...and just after sunset, a cloud slowly formed across the... More

Nice view, easy to find, good service quality. Food is ok, drinks are really good. Prices are on a higher level, but still ok. We would come back!
