At the Dolce by Wyndham Hanoi Golden Lake the bathtubs, sinks, shower and toilet in some rooms and the poolside shower area are also gold plates. One night costs $ 250.
Vietnam this year in its capital, Hanoi, established the world’s first gold-plated hotel, the only one of its kind in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and with its borders closed since last March.
The Dolce by Wyndham Hotel Hanoi Golden Lake, which on Thursday received 19-N, has a certificate from the International Union of Records that also accredits it as the only gold-plated tiled hotel in the world, with 120,000 square meters of its brick façade covered with the precious metal.
Its owner Nguyen Huu Duong explained that much of the interior of the establishment is also covered with gold, such as the wash tanks, sinks, shower and toilet in some rooms and the shower area by the pool.
In addition, the elevator doors are made of five tons of gold, an exhibit that the hotel aims to become “the most luxurious in the world,” its owner said.
Duong explained that his company, Hoa Binh, wanted to have the hotel open for the Formula One Grand Prix to be held this year in the country’s capital and finally canceled by the covid-19 pandemic .
The hotel seeks to make this luxury experience accessible to a wide audience with a minimum price per night of $ 250.
