We stayed 3 nights here and like the overall ambiance of this hotel. We didn't get the chance to have dinner in its restaurant, there were just so many options out there.
- Good location, walking distance to Hoam Kiem lake and the old quarter (not close by but still a nice walk, about 20-25 minutes).
- Friendly service
- Free, stable and decent speed wifi everywhere in the hotel
- Good selection of Asian and Western breakfast. You can order freshly cooked breakfast from the a la carte menu (included in the breakfast package). My wife enjoyed their different styles of noodle soup, I liked the eel congee.
Not so good:
- The bed arrangement is too high to my liking. It's really too high, The top of the mattress was about at my chest, I am only 170cm though.
- I exchanged some VND notes with the hotel. I didn't properly check all the notes and one of 500,000 VND notes I got was slightly torn at the edge. No restaurants wanted to accept that note. So I went back to the hotel requesting them to exchange that for me. The first question the staff asked was: "are you sure this is from us?" Well, of course I was sure, where as I would get the half million notes. They exchanged for me at the end and the manager said: "you should check all notes properly before you left". Well, that didn't help much but didn't matter as long as the note was exchanged.
- Every morning we were waken up by some sort of announcement from the street. Not so bad since we wanted to wake up early, something to keep in mind if you want to have a good sleep.
Overall, we did not enjoy Hanoi as much as the other parts of Vietnam but Hotel de l'Opera did make our stay there better. I recommend anyone this hotel as long as you do not mind the high bed.
The concierge was very helpful too, he recommended us to this beautiful restaurant named "
Quan An Ngon". We love the food and atmosphere there.
Definitely try egg coffee when you are at the old quarter, the Hanoi kid club can take you to a good one.

Just as impressive are La Fee Verte Bar renown for its signature Absinthe, and the hotel's restaurants Cafe Lautrec for Mediterranean inspired cuisine and Satine for Vietnamese cuisine. ... more less
