I was working in Hanoi for 10 days and after the third I tried to book The Gourmet Corner only to be told that there is a three-day waiting list. Not sure that is a fact, but you certainly have to book ahead because space is limited. And now I have been I know why. Perched on the top of... More

Most restaurants in the area have obscured views due to the close proximity of buildings in Hanoi. However, this restaurant has a great view. It's a little small but that's not a problem as long as you get a seat. The food was very tasty as are all the restaurants owned and operate by the elegance hospitality brand name. The... More

Staying at the Hotel Elegance Ruby, returning to the Old Quarter quite late, I asked the Hotel staff for a recommendation.

Initially,I was somewhat suspicious of the recommendation given the interest to have guests dine within the network, but we... More
