Moevenpick Hotel Hanoi

After missing out on the big water park in Nha Trang, when I found out there was one in Hanoi I was all over it! We jumped in a cab to the royal city mall where the waterpark was underground. Te mall itself was like Riccarton mall but 5 or so stories! To expensive to buy anything on my budget so the pool was a goer! It was amazing! Had about 6 hydro slides and I went on them all! There was a four person one where you sat in a tube, a racing mat slide and my ...

However, the hotel was, yet again, superb and the service, led by a benign maniac called Tony, made us feel like royalty. They even upgraded us and showered the bed with rose petals when they discovered we were technically on honeymoon.

It cost 100,000 VND which is roughly 3 GBP. There were shows every 2 hours so we decided to take a later one hoping it would be less crowded. But it was a full house. As we purchased tickets early we got front row seats.

The main reason we had travelled to Northern Vietnam was to visit Halong Bay ...

This lovely business class hotel is in the heart of the French quarter and within walking distance of the Old Quarter. It hosts clean, spacious rooms with a great walk in shower. Complimentary breakfast is delicious. Staff is very friendly.
My two complaints are that wireless service in the rooms is $$$, and the hotel allows smoking in the lobby.
It's a great value play.
