We stayed here twice, nov 2012. The service regarding our stay was great, friendly helpful staff at the hotel and the café. We had booked a trip to Halong Bay through the hotel before we left Australia and when we arrived it appeared it had not been booked, so we got the hotel to organize a different tour for us. We had originally asked for and booked a 4 cabin junk boat cruise and ended up on a 14 cabin junk boat cruise which we didn't know about until we got there. Our cruise was enjoyable although we did want some peace and quiet which is why we asked for the smaller boat we did enjoy ourselves.
I would recommend this hotel as the service was great I would just not recommend booking other things through them.

... to beat the crowds I expected to see there. I spend the next three hours at the museum and there were only about 15 other people in the museum. Such a sad thing. The museum itself was fantastic. It was divided into two parts - one, Vietnam's history until 1800 and second, history from 1800 onwards. Since I just had an afternoon, I decided to focus on the latter. The next three hours were provide me with a view into Vietnam's tumultuous history over the past ...
... dinner at Yin Yang - I had fried rice with chicken & lotus seeds ( a bit like small chick peas) and Hanoi spring rolls stuffed with mushrooms, pork & green onion. GXW is attempting to find the best chicken & sweet corn soup in Vietnam - this one is a major contender!!!!! Even though it was Saturday night and we should have been partying we decided a night off was in order so TV and lights ...
... can be easily explained and I'm sure a quick you tube video would entertain the most uncultured of those who are vaguely interested. The joy of these shows, really mix the history, desperation, delight and dynamism of the county. The landscapes are so varied, the people are so genuine and the atmosphere is humble. On such a short but informative journey to sites such as Halong Bay and Sapa, you really understand that, at least the North, is a wonderful place on earth to ...
