What we say: 2.5 stars

In its heyday, the lake was lined by royal palaces, which are now mostly gone and replaced by high-end housing and luxury hotels.

If you have the time, it's a pleasant enough walk to the lake from the Old Quarter. Take Phan Ding Phung Street to see some of Hanoi's swishest villas, and while you're in the area, pop into Quan Thanh and Tran Quoc pagodas before taking a swan boat ride on the lake.
