We loved our stay in Hanoi Topaz Hotel.
Nothing was too much trouble. Staff spoke good English.
Rooms good value, clean and always well serviced each day.
You really couldn't expect better for a budget hotel so ideally placed in the old quarter.

Things did turn a bit South for a moment or two when the immigration official appeared to have no idea that Malta existed, much to the bemusement of our two Maltese group members who had properly visaed passports issued by the Vietnamese Embassy in London! Having consulted a list or two and spoken to colleagues (and we're pretty sure a map was checked too!) they were allowed ...
... pretty gypped actually, with fewer costume changes and none of the hair and make-up fun. Instead, they spend a lot of time sitting around: Ollie just had to change his tie to a bow tie but for me a special lady from the wedding shop turned up to Make This Happen. The change was done quickly and with the efficiency of a Swiss clock and I was not required nor permitted to help in this what so ever. This lady and I got quite personal with her shifting 'things' around and let me ...
... I would pay him 50,000VD to take me the 1km. He agreed, as as we drove he tried to drive the price higher. I just laughed. I tried to take a couple of selfies, and he offered to take a photo for me. He took a bit of a longer route to get to the post office, and with the selfies I tipped him an extra 10,000VD. I decided it best to break up the deliveries into 2 packages. One for my items and one for the gifts. It's also better for border services, since one box ...
We set off just after 8am, only to discover a very flat back tyre. So we went along the road to find a mechanic, and had the tube replaced for the princely sum of 70,000 dong (a shade over £2). Then we retraced our steps to the HCM highway, and continued the journey north which took us past Yen Cat and into the mountains. Our road was fairly flat for the most part as it snaked its way through fields surrounding the jagged rock formations. The weather was ...
... in the museums we had visited elsewhere on our travels.We had seen enough about Women for the moment so decided to get a coffee and decide our next plan. The coffee shop in the museum was awesome, we had a proper drip coffee (very difficult to cope with if you are impatient) with just a bit of condensed milk – it was thick and syrupy and bitter and hot and Awesome! We realised that having tickets for such an early showing of the water puppets would impact on where we go next ...
