A December 2005 trip
to Hanoi by Luigi Riva
Quote: We arrived in a rainstorm and left on a sunny evening. In between, we had a bit of everything and discovered plenty of charm in and around Hanoi, whatever the weather.
Hotel | "Sofitel Metropole"
But the bed is fantastic, the toiletries are comprehensive, and the free fruit in the evening is the perfect pre-dinner snack. Before heading out, stop at the lively Met Bar for a cocktail, then enjoy the romantic walk along the lake shore that takes you from Sofitel to Hanoi.
At least, after dinner, the cyclo driver will know where your hotel is. And the next morning, your hungover body will appreciate the restrained ambience and rich breakfast pickings.
I had no complaints, none at all, but a bit more flair would be nice.
