)-- A night at the Opera
Hotel de l’Opera Hanoi is the latest member of the MGallery Collection of unique hotels in downtown Hanoi. Located just steps away from the iconic Hanoi Opera House within the historical precinct of Hanoi, the hotel takes guests on a journey to the past and into the charm and allure of "A Night at the Opera."
"We are delighted with the addition of the Hotel de l’Opera Hanoi to the MGallery Collection," says Patrick Basset, Vice President of Operations for Accor Vietnam, the Philippines, Japan and South Korea. "This recently opened hotel is sure to become a favourite with guests seeking individual and personalised experiences in an exceptional location in the historic capital of Vietnam. This is a boutique hotel in every sense and the first for the city of Hanoi."
The 107 meticulously-designed guestrooms and suites, four of which are l’Opera Grand Suites with stunning views of the opera house, have an ambiance which blends a touch of French decor with the luscious operatic settings and the plush comfort of a sumptuous hotel of the 21st Century. Each guestroom has lavish amenities hand-picked for its quality, while its wooden floors compliment the finest Asian textiles and silks contributing to the room’s vibrant colours.
Olivier Delangre, General Manager of Hotel de l’Opera Hanoi, emphasizes that "Hotel de l’Opera Hanoi is a sophisticated reflection of the city. Striking colours, reflections and lush fabrics adorn the public spaces and accommodation rooms that isolate guests from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. The service rituals in the hotel have been created to evoke all the glamour and anticipation of ‘A Night at the Opera’ within each experience."
Operatic glamour in the heart of Hanoi
The hotel distils the best of Hanoi – colonial accents in the architecture and theatrical interior design of jewel tone accents and classic opera motifs juxtaposed with contemporary spaces for dining and entertaining. Contrasting the colonial exterior and entering the hotel through the atrium lobby, summons a feeling of a grand theatre foyer where artists and personalities might mingle while brushing shoulders with stars. Ball gowns and sequins do not feel foreign in this refined and glamorous space where a sense of fame befriends visitors.
