Welcome to Angel Palace Hotel Hanoi
We found this delightful place in a great neighborhood just north of the Old Quarter in Hanoi. The hotel is brand new, opened in March 2007. The lobby, and rooms are decorated in lovely contemporay, clean lines with wood floors, rattan and black laquer furniture and clean white linens. The place is immaculate and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is equipped with a flat screen tv with cable, a mini bar, safe, and free internet connection for lap tops. They also have free internet computers downstairs.
Breakfast is in a wonderful top floor cafe (yes, there is an elevator) --also beautifully decorated with fabulous views of the city. The food is great. Not a buffet, but a nice little menu with delicious and appealing dishes for breakfast.
The neighborhood is excellent. Very close to all of the action--easily walkable to most sites (we did so with our 9 and 13 year old daughters) with lots of nice cafes and shops in the neighborhood. It seems like a up and coming Paris or New York neighborhood.
