Our stay at Hanoi Elegance Sapphire Hotel was excellent. We really loved it and the staff were so helpful, friendly and their English was very good. The room we had was very comfortable with our own private computer with Internet, full cable TV, comfortable bed and pillows (I'm a bit of a fussy sleeper), mini-bar, air-con and en-suite. The hotel has quite a lot of character too.
They helped us book a Halong bay cruise which can be daunting but again this was excellent. Go for the 3 day, 2 night cruise. They don't tell you how much better it is than the 2 day, 1 night cruise but it's well worth the few extra dollars.
On our last day we had such a relaxing afternoon at their other hotel, Hanoi Elegance Diamond, with a lovely lunch on the top floor looking over Hanoi and relaxing massage later on downstairs with a $18 dollar discount just for staying in one of their hotels.
We took the offer of the hotel to arrange a car for us from the hotel and this was a really good idea. The airport is really far from the city and the taxi's all seem a bit dodgy with warnings plastered all over the airport about using dodgy taxi's.
I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.
