Was in Hanoi for a few days and finally got a sunny day and made sure I got the best of it. Googled up the best place to view the sunset in Hanoi and found the summit lounge and verified with trip advisor. I'm glad I did visit as an avid sunset viewer this was spectacular and the service was... More

Amazing view and good selection of drinks. The place in general has a very good ambience, but make sure to bring a jacket if you sit outside, it can get a bit cold

I popped up for a few drinks. As soon as I arrived 10.30 they were already telling me they will close soon. It was quiet, no atmosphere and felt rushed the whole time

Sitting out on the balcony with a Marguerita in hand = heaven. The lights and lake and balmy weather were a delight.

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
