Silk Path Hotel

Silk Path Hotel

The Silk Path is well located for exploring the Old Quarter of Hanoi and the French Quarter, and for taking a stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake. The guest rooms are well appointed and stylishly furnished although some of the deluxe rooms only have internal windows, which is common for many of the older buildings in the city. The hotel has a fresh, contemporary feel with a good range of facilities for a medium-sized hotel, including several restaurants, a premium bar and a piano bar, a fitness center as well as a Jacuzzi on the top floor. The local government authorities have designated three pick-up and drop-off points for vehicles in the Old Quarter to avoid traffic congestion in the area. The Silk Path is conveniently located near to one of these official parking points and your guide will assist with luggage should you not be able to park immediately outside the hotel.
