The magnificent Capella Hanoi brings its enchanting beauty to one of the city’s most desirable locations – Hoan Kiem in Hanoi’s nostalgic quarter. Adjacent to the iconic Hanoi Opera House, Capella Hanoi was dreamt up by Bill Bensley, the acclaimed architect behind Capella Ubud, Bali, the No. 1 Hotel in the World in 2020.

Capella Hanoi was conceived of as a palace of revelry during opera’s halcyon days. Behind the gilded door, the story begins. Guests can imagine opera’s greatest artists, singers, composers, set and costume designers flocking to this rendezvous spot after the final curtain call. 

Within the 47-rooms and suites, the hotel’s thematic accommodations will surprise guests with original memorabilia salvaged from the glorious era of the 1920s, alongside portraits of some of the most famous opera characters reimagined by the prolific artist Kate Spencer.

While soaking in the romantic view of Hoan Kiem Lake, guests can expect to find a plethora of epicurean choices by culinary craftsmen and a curated glimpse of Hanoian treasures, which blend the grace of the French capital with authentic Vietnamese culture.

Every day, guests can discover the essence of northern Vietnam with classes led by experts in Dzó bamboo paper fan making, Vietnamese coffee cupping, Sarah Bernhardt’s cookie making, and the chance to sample Vietnamese rum.

The Hudson Rooms, located on the rooftop of Capella Hanoi, are reminiscent of the craftsmanship and artistry of the Roaring Twenties in New York – that golden era which kicked off cocktail culture, intimate soirees, and delectable oyster recipes.
