|Subject: RE: Vietnam Hotels|
We stayed at a great hotel in Hanoi called the DeSyloia:
http://www.desyloia.com/html/ It's a small 'boutique hotel' in an area
where many of the foreign embassies are and a pleasant walk to most of
the main attractions. It is privately run and the staff are wonderful.
We seldom eat in hotel restaurants but the CayCau has such a great
atmosphere and delicious food that we had dinner there twice.
We loved Hanoi - it is totally different than Ho Chi Minh City. If there is any chance - I suggest you try to go to Hoi An and Hue as well. You can get a domestic flight to Denang (not worth a stop-over) and a bus to either Hue or Hoi An (in different directions). Both are fascinating. Also - Sapa, in the hills north of Hanoi, is supposed to be worth a visit too - we just didn't have time that trip.... have to go back!
Have a great holiday!
