Great location and easy access to local shopping. Lovely, clean and spacious rooms with all amenities Very friendly and helpful staff. Loved the swimming pool. Old Quarters not far and felt safe walking on the streets at night.

Many luxury hotels of Hanoi were located at Northern side of Westlake, but Somerset WL stayed at opposite site, nearby crowded urban zone. It would be a good recommendation for family or couple who want to enjoy fresh morning of Hanoi from their bed :) The decoration looked like a second home for Vietnamese with elegant arrangement and furniture.

This was economical and although not much from the outside and dirty carpeted hallways but inside was a gem. My room was quite nice and included a kitchen that I didn't use and very comfortable amenities. The staff was great (very helpful) and the food was good. The gym and pool area was very inviting.

The hotel is very quiet. Nice room and nice service. It's near the west lake and the view is magnificent. The only disadvantage is that it's too far away from the Old Quarter which is considered to the centre and interesting part of Hanoi. I spent 2 nights there for conference. If i am going to travel for leisure, I...

Somerset West Lake is situated at the quiter side of Hanoi city. The hotel staffs speak relatively good English. Check-in was fast, but we later had to change to another room because the our room was full of cigarette smell, despite my prior request for a non-smoking room. We stayed in a studio premier room which is very spacious. There...

We arrived at Somerset and was welcomed without any smiles. My friend from Hanoi forgot to bring his ID with him so I asked if my ID alone would be sufficient.

Not super conveniently located, Somerset West Lake property definitely appears far more appealing online than in person. Impressive entranceway but dated hallways and tiny, slow elevators. Rooms are all different layouts - ask to see yours before agreeing to one. Mattresses and bedding aren't the typical 4-star quality but pillows are fantastic. A fire alarm brought random security men into...
