Pan Pacific Hanoi

The best views
of Hanoi

Pan Pacific Hanoi for me is one of the hotels with the best views of Hanoi. I really love the large glass windows over looking the lively city and its’ flow of traffic.  From the guest room,  sit down at the desk, have a sip of coffee, and West Lake, Truc Bach Lake and the iconic Hanoi landmarks all appear there, in one frame. That was a moment that’s hard to forget.


Hanoi has some popular tourist areas. The well known and must visited spots spread from the Old Quarter to Ba Dinh Square and then West Lake. Pan Pacific Hanoi is in an unique location, where during your stay you get to see where and how those areas are connected. The hotel’s within walking distance to many of Hanoi’s attractions and the places you need to visit when in this city.  Pan Pacific Hanoi is also not far from the other two well known five star hotels in West Lake, naming the InterContinental Hanoi West Lake and Sheraton Hanoi, all are around 15 minutes walk away.


My staycation was spent at the Pacific Club room. The room has decorative and traditional Vietnamese features with a touch of modernity. Entering the room, you are greeted with a display of a traditional ceramic pieace, a picture of Hanoi’s Temple of Literature hanging on the wall and a very soft, comfortable and tidy bed in the center of the room. The bed comes with normal sized pillows and three small decorative ones in purple. Opposite the bed and by the window is a modern working desk, impressive enough, but it is just a stepping stone to a WOW moment  that no one can forget during their stay here: the view.


The best feature of the room is definitely the large glass window with a gorgeous view over West Lake, Truc Bach Lake and the skyline of Hanoi. The oldest Buddhist temple in Hanoi, Tran Quoc pagoda is located in a picturesque place right there in front of your room view. The whole scene is too beautiful, make it nearly impossible to sit at this very desk to actually do some work.  You may be more likely to concentrate more on the view of the city rather than on the work.

At this point, the desk becomes a perfect chill out and relax spot to enjoy and observe Hanoi from above. It has the best of Hanoi in one frame: Tran Quoc pagoda, West Lake, Truc Bach Lake, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and some of Hanoi’s iconic and tallest buildings.


I did forget that I was still in Hanoi at some moments of the day during my stay. The atmosphere mixing oriental and Western design created a feeling that I was on a business trip somewhere outside of Vietnam. The only thing kept me remembering where I was is the gorgeous scenery of a vibrant, hustle Hanoi.

To the right of the room entrance is a glass wall bathroom which comes with a pretty bath tub, a sink, shower and toilet.

Pan Pacific Hanoi’s famous for its rooftop bar. Thanks to the hotel’s unique location, the Summit Lounge on the 20th floor is a popular spot where many people visit for some of the best views of Hanoi.
