Halong Hotel 1
Spend a night or two here just to say you did
What we say:
This is a 'government-run' hotel -- which is to say, it was built in 1938 by the French, but was subsequently liberated after they and the Vietnamese had a bit of a falling out sixteen years later. It's not in a great location, and it certainly doesn't embody the high-standards of more modern hotels, but it does have a nice atmosphere -- the rooms are arranged around a courtyard, a les Francaises, and they have a bit of that turgid, shut-in feeling you'd get from an old villa in the French countryside. But in a good way. It's main virtue is that it's a living slice of history -- a hold-over from the days when this would basically be the only first-class joint in town. This is where Catherine DeNeuve holed-up while filming Indochine. Spend a night or two here just to say you did.
