The city’s best views can be found on the 65th floor of the landmark Lotte building, opened in 2014, in the western corner of Hanoi’s Ba Dinh district. From this uninterrupted vantage point, high above Hanoi’s hustle and bustle, one can consider the size of the Old Quarter relative to the sheer scale of Hanoi’s voracious growth. The tower also houses a hotel, all manner of restaurants, a rooftop bar and a department store on its lower floors.
Lotte Tower is around 20 minutes by taxi to the Old Quarter.
