I stayed here for a few days R&R at the end of a G Adventures trip around Vietnam.
After a bit the mad crazy traffic of Hanoi can get to you and entering the lobby a sense of calmness takes over. I thoroughly recommend paying a bit more for a room in the original building to get the full experience (though the new building is just the other side of the swimming pool). The bed is probably the most comfortable I have ever slept in! All the usual room extras one would expect in a 5* hotel.
The swimming pool area is small but very relaxed with the pool staff bringing you a refreshing towel /water. They also hold free yoga classes some mornings (book when you arrive) - also worth considering are the cooking classes - I missed out as no spaces. Quite expenses but from talking to others a great experience. My only critique is the food /bar is expensive for Vietnam - US 5* hotel prices which comes a bit of a shock when used to spending $6 on a meal in rest of Vietnam. But chill and enjoy - or as I did walk out to local café for breakfast! The cocktail list is mainly short ones - where as I like long ones to sip - but the bar tender was happy to make up one at my request.

My wife and myself had two stays in the past week broken by a visit to Holong Bay. The hotel staff were very helpful in all ways, nothing was too much trouble. The taxis that bear the Nikko name were always on hand and good operators (cheap to get around). The bar had a fantastic happy hour being good nibbles and great value. We were always being helped by the concierge operators when coming and going and always translated for us to the taxi drivers. One of my best hotels.

While we have come to expect great service from almost everywhere in Vietnam, this hotel exceeded those expectations with every interaction with their wonderful staff. They were so helpful not just with everything in the hotel, but a huge help in fixing our changed schedule we needed to adjust. I can't say enough great things about the lovely ladies at reception and in all their restaurants. They are all to be commended highly. The extra we paid for the bay room view was well worth it. Great view and great clean and big room. Also the Sky Bar was fantastic with great views and again great staff. I will only stay here when in Halong.
