Somerset West Central Hanoi
Looking to stay with us for more than 30 nights
Its streets surge with scooters vying for right of way amid the organised chaos that is the Vietnamese traffic and its architecture reveals layers of its French and Chinese occupation periods – the neoclassical Opera House that was built in the early 1900s and the pagoda-like Pen Tower situated next to the famed Hoan Kiem Lake.
Push past the ubiquitous tourist souvenir shops and you’ll find yourself in the original passages of the Hanoi Old Quarter where the roads were named after the goods they hawked, from shoes to medicine, ancestral shrines to tailored ao dais, the traditional Vietnamese costume. There, farmers hawk their wares while the locals scarf down a breakfast of piping hot noodles on low-to-ground stools and tables, all mere inches from the blaring traffic.
Don't be afraid to join the locals for a bowl of hot pho, a Vietnamese noodle soup, or a French baguette stuffed with sorts of good stuff - slices of ham, pâté, picked vegetables and chilis - that’s known to the locals as banh mi. Visitors will soon learn of the reason for the nation’s world-renowned cuisine.
Slated to open in 2018 in the heart of Hanoi is Somerset West Central Hanoi, which will be strategically situated in the Nam Trung Yen New Urban Area in Cau Giay District. The serviced residence will serve the accommodation needs of both corporate clients and travellers looking to explore the city. Currently, the area houses the offices of government ministries in Vietnam such as the Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Public Security as well as multinational companies such as Standard Chartered, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The serviced residence will be developed as a part of an integrated development, along with a Parkson department store. The serviced residence will also be situated within a short walking distance to the Big C hypermarket and National Conference Centre. The Noi Bai International Airport and existing city centre are also within a 30-minute drive from the serviced residence.
At the end of a long day out and about, retire to the residence to rejuvenate. The serviced residence will be offering residents a choice of studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartment units. The serviced residence will also provide facilities such as a swimming pool, gymnasium, business centre and residents’ lounge.
