The Hong Ngoc 5 is definitely lower in class than the Hanoi Elegance Diamond. It didn't have great reviews on TripAdvisor but it's really not too bad. The room is a reasonable size. The carved wooden furniture looks awesome - love my Narnia wardrobe - but to be honest it's pretty uncomfortable. The desk/chair are the wrong height for each other, the wooden chairs aren't cozy, and the bed is really firm. Oh, and the computer crashed + the fridge doesn't work. On the other hand, it's high floor so is quiet-ish+ comes with a computer & WiFi + staff have fixed the pc (and the mouse works once you slip a book underneath it).
There's an ATM at the entrance (withdrawls from it on credit card statements show up with the hotel's name as a warning to save confusion!).
Breakfast here is forgettable and there's nowhere brilliant to eat nearby. Best to go for a 10 min walk down to Ta Hien.
