The five-star hotel, which claims to be the first property in the world clad in gold tiles, sits by Giang Vo Lake, in the centre of Hanoi.

There are reportedly 5,000 square metres of gilded ceramic on the outside of the building. But it's not just the walls that glitter, as guests are also greeted by an entirely gold lobby, as well as a fully gold-plated infinity pool, furniture and room appliances. The theme even extends to the sinks, bathtubs and toilet bowls.

On opening day, guests could be seen posing by the pool and inside the sparkling lobby, tended to by staff dressed in red and gold.

The 400-room property, developed by Hoa Bing Group, will operate under the American Wyndham Hotels brand.

The price per night will start from USD250, according to Vietnam Insider.

There are also a number of apartments to rent in the hotel, with costs starting from USD6,500 per square metre.
