Apricot Hotel opens in Hanoi

The Apricot Hotel opened its doors in Vietnam. Aside from upscale accommodation and facilities, the property doubles as an art gallery with more than 600 pieces of original artwork found throughout.

The hotel is located in the Old Quarter of Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, and has 123 neo-classical guestrooms and suite in five categories, namely: "Sketch," "Canvas," "Gallery," "Masterpiece" and "Studio." Upscale facilities include two gourmet restaurants, a heated rooftop swimming pool, a rooftop view with views, "Spa L'Art," a lobby lounge and cafe, meeting facilities and a rooftop fitness center with floor-to-ceiling glass walls and views overlooking the Hoan Kiem Lake and Hanoi city.

The hotel also acts as an art gallery with original artworks displayed in the corridors, the lobby and in the guestrooms, showcasing the country's popular painters and sculptors. Among the hotel's artworks, highlights include Nguyen Dung's “Traditional Folk Song Singers,” Mai Thu's “Young Girl” and Phan Ke An's “Recalling One Late Afternoon in Tay Bac.”
