We were the only ones there. At night, lights insight are to bright to make good pictures of the sky. Nothing to do really. To pricy for what you get.

Keangnam - the name says it all, its mostly for Koreans or asian business people. The building is mainly empty after some previous corruption issues with the pervious parkson shopping closure. Note this building is out of the wat, far from the centre and will be a waste of time for tourists. If you want to have a better observation deck, wait till 5pm and go to Lotte hanoi building roof top bar.

I went here this evening with my girlfriend, well where do I start. We were the only ones on the observation deck ( if that's what they want to call it) so obviously we expected that we would enjoy our visit, that was not the case. After paying nearly 500k entrance fee, we we're less than impressed.
1.The windows are filthy so you can't see out of them.
2.
You reflect in the Windows when you try to take a picture.
3. Everything in the gallery was switched off, other than the observation deck everything else was closed.
Seeing as over 50% of the building was closed, I asked for a partial refund and was laughed at.
The worst observation deck we've ever been to, lotte center is 100 times better.

It was provided by the company so i stayed here for a long time . location is horrible but the breakfast is okay but the taxi fare with the smallest taxi costs exactly 100,000 vnd to hoan kiem. so i dont know if the breakfast or view from up high can compensate that.

The Calidas is offered as a hotel and serviced suites. The design of the hotel is gastly with a very unorganised feel to it. I received a corporate rate which still put it above the likes of Pullman hotel etc.

Getting around between the hotel floors, ground and level 7 gym/pool area is very long winded with long waits for the lift to cover other floor levels in the building. The pool area is on level 7 with a strange arrangement to get changed and walk through the building to the pool. The pool itself was large but for some reason had only 4 loungers to relax on. The sauna/jaquzzi feature was dissapointing and quite offputting. It was nude only. This is the 21st century and bobbing around with a bunch of naked men in the jacuzzi is not an enjoyable experience.

The room unfortauntely had a damp/smokey smell to it and there was burn marks on the table where the previousguest had been smoking in a non smoking room.

Downstairs on level 1 there was another pool although not very appealing again. The cafe had very poor quality food and there was a lack of shops or eating options.

Would not recommend staying here and would instead suggest staying at one fo the international hotels at a cheaper price.
