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.

... extended to the two day cruise we took to Halong Bay. We were again upgraded and given a wee basket of fruit and two heavily laced mohitos on our arrival on board.

... tables set up for people to ask an elder to write out their good fortune for the year. Not sure if priests, monks or elders, these men, dressed in traditional costume, had line ups in front of them of people who were waiting to have their individual fortune for the year written for them on parchment (See picture). These 'fortunes” were written out in old calligraphy style and we saw many families taking pictures of their children holding up ...
... just went all "stank ******".
For dinner we headed out to the night markets - a never ending tunnel of stalls selling every possible item of clothing and sundries. We eventually found a stall selling pâté baguettes - for 15k D we obtained a seriously delicious evening snack consisting of crusty bread, latherings of pâté with parsley and other random components.
Then back to the hostel for a well earned shower and ...
... was never actually asked if I wanted a drink, they were just handed to me by strangers, bar staff or friends. That might sound like haphazard behaviour in the “Dangerous part of the world”, but it really wasn’t everyone was lovely in that bar and we had a big fat whale of a time.
It was now around 12:30 and people in the3 bar had begun to tire and leave but we were still going strong. I was completely wasted though and I realised that if I didn’t eat ...
