Thang Long Opera Hotel Hanoi Reviews
Old school charm at a very central location Jul 05, 2013
The Thang Long Opera hotel is a middle class hotel only 2 blocks away from the Hoan Kiem lake and the old quarter. It's a modest but clean city hotel with eight floors.
Upon entering there is a lobby with souvenir shop and 2 computers on one side and the Biz Club breakfast and lunch restaurant on the other. Because we had a group check-in, we got a welcome drink and the keys were ready upon entering. Though this is appearantly because our tour rep paid a bit of a tip....
There are only two elevators and they are pretty slow. But luckily they are there, because in this humid heat, I do not feel like taking the stairs to the fifth floor.
Room 501 is a small and modest but clean twin. There are twin beds and Chinese style furniture. There's even a coffee table and two armchairs squeezed in, with a water kettle and a plate of fresh fruit! There are also two complimentary water bottles, and a filled (paid) minibar.
The bathroom is small but clean with a rather modern shower. Though there's not much pressure on the water, rinsing shampoo out of one's hair is quite an ordeal. There even is a hairdryer, but there is no safe in the room. The manually controlled air-conditionning in the room works very well. The difference is enormous when entering the very hot corridors.
Breakfast is served in the Biz Club restaurant and has both Asian and Western food. A chef is cooking up eggs, there's white, brown and French bread, jam, cereal, fruit and a series of pastries. On the Asian side there is fried rice, noodle soup and some other dishes.
For a three star hotel, the Thang Long Opera hotel is more than decent. The place is modest and a bit outdated, yet acceptably clean. Moreover the breakfast is extensive enough not to go hungry!
