Now open for business is Dolce by Wyndham Hanoi Golden Lake—located at the centre of the city along Giang Vo Lake. The five-star hotel is also the first Dolce hotel in Asia. Built at a cost of about US$200 million (approximately RM852,119,000), it’s gold galore throughout the one-of-a-kind hotel. The 24-carat golden treatment is given to lobbies, an infinity pool, as well as rooms with splendid cutlery and cups. Even the toilet seats and shower heads received the Midas touch.
