Apricot Hotel is a smart, upmarket property in a central location in the lively city of Hanoi, northern Vietnam. Situated in Hanoi’s atmospheric old quarter with super views across Hoan Kiem Lake, this elegant hotel offers 123 rooms and suites, three restaurants, a sauna, gym, and an impressive rooftop bar and swimming pool. The Apricot hotel will appeal to travellers seeking comfortable accommodation and attractive facilities in the heart of Vietnam’s thriving capital.

Guest areas include an elegant lounge serving traditional afternoon tea, and two restaurants: L’Artiste, which features an international menu, and Palette Restaurant, specialising in Asian fusion cuisine. A rooftop bar and generous outdoor swimming pool are located on the tenth floor and offer a peaceful contrast to the busy city streets below, and a great spot to relax with a cocktail after a day sightseeing. There is a small onsite gym complete with a sauna and steam room, a library, and an in-house music venue which showcases Vietnamese and international artists.

Apricot Hotel is ideally located at the centre of Hanoi’s historic Old Quarter, a bustling maze of bars, markets, street food vendors, and traditional craftsmen, interspersed with ancient temples and historic buildings. A short walk away are Hoan Kiem Lake and the 18th century Ngoc Son Temple, a leafy, tranquil oasis in the heart of the city, where locals gather each morning to practice tai chi.

The accommodation comprises 123 contemporary rooms and suites, decorated with a blend of modern and traditional furnishings and artworks. Each unit has double or twin beds, and a modern ensuite bathroom, plus satellite TV, air conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. Rooms vary in size and aspect, from modest ‘deluxe sketch’ rooms which overlook the internal courtyard, to spacious ‘masterpiece’ suites which come with a separate lounge area, a private courtyard garden, and great city views. Several ‘studio’ units are also available, with separate sleeping and lounge areas, plus a small kitchenette and dining area.

Children of all ages are welcome at the hotel. Guests under six years of age are accommodated free of charge when sharing a room and bed with their parents. An extra bed can be provided in most rooms, for one child under 12 years of age, subject to an additional charge.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
