Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomBKK Comfortable bed and great service
I expected the typical InterConti experience, and was not disappointed. When staying for only one night in a city, especially one I don't know, and for business at that, I don't want to take any risk with the hotel. The InterConti is always a safe choice, and this includes this hotel as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kassyina Great room with beautiful view
My room was right above the lake with a beautiful view. The room was clean and spacious, especially the bathroom. The bed and pillows were so comfortable that I had a good night sleep. Hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gladys Ng Good value for 5 star hotel
Although the price paid to stay in a 5 Star hotel seemed reasonable, the standard of service is no up to par. When I first arrived and pre paid 3 rooms under my name with my own extension for another 2 nights on my own. They gave the best room to my colleague instead. When I asked for a receipt to indicate that I have paid for all 3 rooms, it took them hours and after many mistakes before they can get such a simple request right. The redeeming factors are the good quality room & staff are helpful at the club lounge.

This is my first stay in this property even though I have been to Vietnam many times.
It is a beautiful place and the room is comfortable. The staff are well-trained and all out to please - truly commendable.
I am particularly pleased because I need not have to borrow a 3-pin plug (I forgot to bring mine). The room is well-equipped for the convenience of travelers from all over the world. I guess Inter-Continental has it all - comfort, convenience and beauty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by klboothe I would return to the hotel again
I enjoyed my stay at the Intercontinental Hotel/West Lake Hanoi. Staff were incredibly friendly, attentive and cheerful. The guest services manager even ensured that cake was delivered to my room on my birthday!
I would stay again, no time to even think about it. I would welcome the chance to visit this hotel, and Hanoi, again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LowMicheal Excellent place for business and relaxation
Although a night stay there and rush, the pleasant experience of the relaxation view of the West Lake and the cozy atmosphere of the hotel and warm friendly attendance of the staffs made it a relaxing trip

We really enjoyed the buggy rides to the room! The breakfast was great (especially the pho and drink bottles), all in a really nice setting. The staff were friendly and helpful (calling cabs for us, bringing water). We were also pleasantly surprised with an anniversary cake, thank you for making our holiday!

As a first visitor to Vietnam it was a better stay than in the Intercontinental than old town. I do feel for the price a free shuttle service between the hotel and the airport could contribute to the stay as it is not everybody that needs a limousine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by askari1962 Roosters in Ha Noi
There's really only one thing that can consistently spoil a hotel stay for me and that's a bad night's sleep. Unfortunately, I had three in a row whilst staying at this hotel while on a recent business trip to Ha Noi.
The usual high quality Intercontinental reception and check in were there on arrival.
The room up grade occur to an excellent suite overlooking Westlake and only two things detracted form the stay.
Being woken by roosters crowing at 5.15am each morning (and no, this hotel isn't out in the rural areas) and the poor sound proofing between floors (as I was awoken on a number of occasions by people thumping around directly above me. The first time it happened I awoke with a start as I thought that there was someone else in the room- yes, it was that loud).
Other than that, a typically high quality stay at what otherwise is a high quality establishment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Raya014 Lovely place to stay apart from not well educated Bell Staffs
At first we didn't like our room which we've had booked in advance because it wasn't like it was offered on the website. So we wanted to take a look at rooms with the West Lakeview and that's when the Bell Staff turned into a grumpy mood. He reluctantly picked up the phone to talk to the Hotel Front Desk Clerk while mumbling those rooms would be more expensive as if we asked him the price! Well, we finally got our perfect room with the West Lakeview and he got a nice tip to get out of a bad mood ;) and the rest was just amazing! This hotel is set in a peaceful and lush environment and most staffs are kind and helpful. Loved it :)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by movinmovin expect more from Intercon brand
I cant say any one thing was terrible, but when compared to other Intercontinental properties, this has to be my lowest score or stay ever. It tries hard, and I see it, but it doesnt pull it off too well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ER1984 Intercontinental West Lake Hanoi
Great location, away from the busy Hanoi Centre but close enough to be in the center in few minutes by taxi. Excellent service for IHG members, as Ambassador we were upgraded to the west Lake Suite despite he fact that the hotel was full for the labour day week end. Staff at the front desk and the Club were very friendly and helpful. The Reservation Supervisor is very professional !
The breakfast at the club was excellent.
Highly recommended hotel for IGH member, the 15% discount on the food is a real plus.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gingertop Lake Houses are prettier far afar than upclose comfort
One big complaint - I had a first floor room in a Lake House and it was disgustingly humid. Sheets, clothes, towels --nothing dries and even work and packing papers got puffy with moisture. [and You can't have a "Green" program if nothing dries; meaning I had to use way too many towels and couldn't reuse them.] Was glad it was our last stop before home.
That aside, the over-water bar in the middle has a lovely early evening breeze, the pool was clear and cold, and staff was accommodating even if English was usually under-developed.
Breakfast buffet very good, heartily recommend the chicken noodle soup and the dim sum.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ventsi Worths every cent you spend here
If need to describe in one word my experience in this hotel - it's perfect. Starting from the room, the lake view, the breakfast, the restaurants and the bar, the evening snacks at the club lounge. And at much lower rate than any Intercon properties in other countries. The only drawback for me was that it was a bit far from my venue places but about 20 mins travel to the old quarter was a small price that worth to pay. Can be recommended both for business and for leisure as it has nice view, swimming pool and is quietly situated away from the main road.

Spent 4 fabulous nights at Westlake . Couldn't have chosen a nicer place to rest and relax after 3 weeks touring Vietnam .
Only disappointing aspect was the service in the Saigon Resteraunt on our last evening .
We chose to dine there as it was our 25 wedding anniversary and even after booking with the concierge and requesting certain things re seating our wishes were not met .
The staff were very knowledgeable re food choices and this made the experience enjoyable .
Will certainly recommend Westlake to any one travelling and looking for quality accommodation !
