flight with Vietnam Airways was called to the gate early - pleasant surprise however missed out on grabbing a coffee.
55 minutes flight time.
sat next to Sandy and his soon to be wife Valana in the very last row. the seats were unable to be reclined so not much chance of sneaking some shuteye.

SCOTT: Well, as soon as we got into the airport and then began driving through the city it was clear who won the civil war, to the victor go the spoils. Hanoi is more developed and modern than Saigon. It is also clear that there are two distinct cultures/religions; Hanoi is Chinese/Confucianism, while Saigon is Indochine/Buddhism. We went to a …
Our first night in vietnam we stay in Ninh Binh. It's an eye opener after sleepy Laos! The rule of the road in vietnam is that you give way to any vehicle larger than you, and you must use your horn at least twice each minute - hold down continously if overtaking - especially when doing so in a slow coach on a blind bend on a cliff. We aged about …
Our guide was waiting for us - hooray ! Typical - we were told we didn't need photos for our visas but guess what - we did!!! Luckily, Hien, our guide, sorted this at immigration so we had a rush job done by a lady in uniform $2 per person! then we were on our way- to the tour operators office so we could pay her all the lovely USD we had in our …
Awake early 0600 - as music and the morning new bulletin was broadcast to the whole village!! Fabulous! So got up and went for breakfast - not sure why we bothered to do that either!! Our journey today went via the largest pagoda in Vietnam - to reach this we had to go down the worst roads ever! The pagoda was in fact 3 pagodas up a very steep hill …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hong Ngoc Dynastie Hotel Hanoi
Clean, but hard bed.
Spent one night here -- an OK hotel with good location and helpful staff. The bed was pretty hard, and the room smelled liked incense -- but it was clean and serviceable. Breakfast was so-so.
Limpio pero cama muy dura
Pasé una noche aquí - un hotel que está bien con una buena ubicación y un personal servicial. La cama era muy dura y la habitación olía como a incienso pero estaba limpia y servible. El desayuno así,así.
Hong Ngoc no está mal
Sólo pasamos un día de diciembre en el Hong Ngoc y desde luego que dispone de un ascensor junto al comedor. Nos gustó el hotel, que cuenta con acceso gratuito a Internet (aunque lento) y un buen desayuno bufé. Las habitaciones que dan a la fachada son luminosas pero muy ruidosas, con todos esos cláxones de las motocicletas, es mejor que utilices tapones para los oídos, al menos hasta media noche. Las habitaciones de atrás son oscuras y un poco deprimentes, pero todo está limpio y con bonitos cuartos de baño y muebles. El personal siempre está dispuesto a ayudar. No llegué a ver ninguna hormiga.
Hong Ngoc just fine
We just stayed at the Hong Ngoc 1 in December, and it certainly did have an elevator--off of the dining room. We liked the hotel, which had free internet (although slow) and a nice buffet breakfast. The front rooms are light but very noisy with all the motorbike horns--use earplugs, at least until the middle of the night. The back rooms are dark and a little depressing. But all are clean and with nice bathrooms and furniture. The staff is very willing to help. I didn't see any ants.
L'Hong Ngoc va bene
Siamo stati al Hong Ngoc 1 in dicembre e devo dire che l'ascensore c'era... ma era in sala da pranzo. L'hotel ci è piaciuto, internet era gratis, anche se la connessione era lenta, e c'era una bella colazione a buffet. Le camere sul davanti sono piene di luce, ma molto rumorose con tutti quei clacson delle motociclette: dovrete usare i tappi per le orecchie almeno fino a notte inoltrata. Le camere sul retro sono buie e un po' deprimenti. Ma sono tutte pulite e con un bel bagno e dei bei mobili. Il personale è sempre a vostra disposizione. Non ho visto le formiche.
Pulito, ma il letto è duro
Ho passato una notte qui: l'hotel non è male, l'ubicazione è buona e il personale premuroso. Il letto era veramente duro e la camera puzzava d'incenso, ma era pulita e funzionale. La colazione era così così.
This hotel was very nice, and had an even nicer staff. The hotel is located right in the heart of the French Quarter, and by tons of good restraurants (although the Garden Restaurant next door is no good, so venture out just a bit farther). The pizza place just down the street is wonderful, and has a mean lunch buffet special.... Pepperionis is the name.
Nous avons passé quelques jours dans cet hôtel l'été dernier, et il nous laisse un excellent souvenir, le meilleur de tous les hôtels que nous avons connus au Vietnam.
Our Vietnam based travel agent booked us into this hotel and could not have been more pleased. Clean, nicely decorated with balcony, spacious room & bath with friendly, helpful staff.
Very Highly Recommended
We stayed at the Hong Ngoc hotel the last few days of our trip to SE Asia and were really taken with the place. It was definitely the best value of any hotel we stayed in during our three week vacation. The huge double room included lovely, classy furniture (even a large round table for room service and writing desk)...all exquisite, esp. for a hotel in this price range. The buffet breakfast, included in the price, was delightful, and in the evenings, the restaurant features live traditional Vietnamese music. There is no such thing as a quiet room in the old city of Ha Noi, perhaps, so don't expect it - but we were on the 5th floor, and it wasn't so bad (as our previous hotel, anyway). And the staff: outstanding! Friendly, gractious, will bend over backwards to insure a good stay.
