Ten rooftop hotels have made it onto Tripadvisor’s Travellers’ Choice list for 2021, with many boasting standout features such as infinity pools and breathtaking city-scape views.
The winners were determined by an algorithm that analysed properties tagged with ‘rooftop bar’ or ‘rooftop terrace’ on Tripadvisor – along with the quality and quantity of reviews and ratings that mention ‘rooftop’ (as well as its synonyms), the Metro UK reported.
Hanoi La Siesta Diamond Hotel in Hanoi has taken first place on Tripadvisor World’s Top Rooftop Hotels list – and with jaw-dropping skyline views, it’s easy to see why.
The hotel, located on Lo Su Street to the east of the Old Quarter, is only a short walk from Hoan Kiem (Sword) Lake.

One reviewer said: ‘The sky bar is a must visit with the scenic city – probably the best place to enjoy a sun-downer. Lots of corners for taking photos, and the bar itself is worth being photographed.’
Hanoi La Siesta Hotel & Spa was placed second among the world’s top 25 based on traveler recommendation of the Trip Advisors Traveler’s Choice Best of the Best Awards 2020.
