hotels and art galleries...

by frog_duh

hi!! need some advice on my hanoi trip (which is coming up really soon!! *excited!!*)

1) Hotel - we were considering Especen hotel (http://www.especen.vn/). Anyone stayed there or have any feedback on it? i read that it is in a quiet area, which is good for sleep... but i'm not sure if it's tooo quiet that would make it unsafe for 3 girls to walk back to the hotel at night.

Alternatively, any suggestions on a good, clean, safe hotel? and it's kinda difficult to find budget hotels with triple rooms too :(

2) Art galleries - any good ones to recommend? conveniently located would be good...

thanks!!

It is hard to find triples. Most times we had to settle for a single and a double bed.
In Hanoi we stayed at a place called Manh Dung guest house. From memory it cost us US$21 for a room for the 3 of us (single bed & double bed). It could be worth emailing them to see if they have any triple rooms.

I wouldn't recommend booking tours through them though, they were a bit pricey.

Hi, we stayed at the Dragon Hotel, 48 Xuan Dieu Street, Tay Ho District of Hanoi. It is a beautifully ornate hotel on the shores of West Lake with many small restaurants and shops in the vicinity.
There are also some larger up-market shopping centres nearby.
The rooms are quite luxurious with all required creature comforts and the hotel's breakfast was some of the best I had from hotels in Vietnam.
It is listed as a 3-star and my wife and I paid about AU$50 per night. Hotel staff very approachable and they also arranged for transport to the airport.
A bit more expensive than elsewhere, but I'm glad we splurged a bit there.
The carvings and art pieces in the foyer and on the roof is superb!
We walked around extensively and felt very safe. The Sheraton is a stone's throw away and we enjoyed buffet dinners there twice! Delicious.

I don't know about the Especen, but here's my pick. Everything works at the Gia Thinh (it's 3*, but service more like 5*) - it's beautiful, quiet, good food, in-room computer, all just plain great! I was there in March and already booked again for '09. I suggest the $30. superior room.

I just looked at the Especen's site, and my comment is - "what plain rooms!".
The location would be quieter than the Old Quarter, yes, but the Old Quarter is the place to be, and the Gia Thinh is quiet. Especen is in the Cathedral district - rather deserted at night. I walked from the train station to Hoan Kiem Lake so I know the area quite well. I really think you could do better than the Especen on location. I've booked 5 nights at Gia Thinh @ $30. and also at the Victory Queen @ $18. for 3 nights. If you don't want to spend more suggest the Victory Queen - quite new I believe, and a better location:

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Crossing the Road

by pmarshuk

When you see the traffic in Hanoi you may be put off trying to cross a main road. However the thing to do is is to choose your moment and then walk slowly acroos the road thriough the traffic. Because it moves quites slowly the drivers will be able to aim to miss you, so long as you don't do anything unpredictable like stopping.
If in doubt wait for a local to do it and then walk alongside them.

DIEN BIEN PHU

by Umea6

Dien Bien Phu is located app. 400 km north-west of Hanoi. The area is largely populated by Thai. This small town is famour for the 1954 battle with the French who were defeated and were forced to leave Indochina. In chinese Dien Bien Phu means Chies Frontier Post, but the Thai call it MUONG THENG - "Heavenly Spirit".
You can visit a small museum there and some remnants of the battle - tanks, cannons,.... and numerous graves around.

Noi Boi International Airport

by Blatherwick

Taking a plane to Hanoi will bring you to the Noi Bai International Airport, 35 km (45-60min) north of the city. Domestic flights are handled by Vietnam Airlines and Pacific Airlines. Many international airlines service Hanoi. The cheapest option is Air Asia from Bangkok. I got a one way ticket for 1500 Baht after taxes.

Taxis that travel from Noi Bai Airport to the city cost a fixed price of $10 USD. These guys will drop you in front of a hotel of their choice so the driver can collect a commission from the owner. However, if you tell them that you have confirmed reservations they will give in.

You can take public buses number 07 and 17 to the city center from Noi Bai airport. They cost 5000 VDN and will take about 1 hour. Bus number 07 crosses Thang Long bridge and takes you to the western part of Hanoi. Bus number 17 crosses Chuong Duong bridge and takes you close to the old quarter.

Shuttle-buses to the Airport depart opposite the Vietnam Airlines Office on Quang Trung (see below). Tickets cost $2 USD and are sold in the building in front of which the vans are parked.

At Noi Bai Airport you will have to pay a service charge of 14 US$ if you are on an international flight.

best indian food

by alisontaylor about Tandoor

I have been coming to this restaurant for over ten years and it is still one of my favourite hanoi restaurants. The quality of the food is always high, I eat at a lot of indian restaurants, and this ranks among one of the best. A nice change from Vietnamese food. The ambience is not as good as it could be but with food like this, it doesn't matter. and they deliver to your door. Aloo mirch is my favourite dish, with potatoes and green peppers.
