Hanoi has become the location for the Asia Pacific region’s first ever Novotel Suites property.
Located in the city’s Cau Giay district, the new hotel is aimed at providing international-standard midscale accommodation for the long-stay or family markets. All suites feature kitchenettes, can be adapted to create working or living areas, and can accommodate up to four people.
“The Novotel Suites brand is designed as an attractive option for medium- and long-term stays, and is a perfect choice for business travellers and families on urban holidays,” explained Patrick Basset, AccorHotels’ chief operating officer for Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia. “[This] is the first Novotel Suites in Asia Pacific and the sixth Novotel in Vietnam, underscoring AccorHotels’ commitment to continued growth in one of the most dynamic hospitality markets in the region.”
The Novotel Suites brand was launched in 2010 and now has more than 30 properties in nine countries, mainly in Europe.
Novotel Suites Hanoi features 151 units, including 87 studios and 64 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. These apartments range in size from 48 to 104m² and feature separate living rooms with IPTV, fully-equipped kitchenettes, walk-in closets and free Wi-Fi. Some of the units also feature private terraces.
And AccorHotels claims that the property’s hotel-like facilities “set it apart from other serviced apartments”.
These include a restaurant with buffets and live cooking stations, a rooftop bar overlooking the city, an outdoor swimming pool with bar, 24-hour fitness centre, steam room, sauna and children’s playground. And catering to the MICE market, there are also three meeting rooms for small to medium-sized events.
AccorHotels now operates 23 hotels in Vietnam, with 10 more scheduled to open in the next two years, making it the largest international hotel operator in the country.
