After a sleepless night on the train from Sapa, we arrived at the Silk Path Hotel at 0500 hrs - yes at 5am! The staff were terrific and checked us straight into a beautiful Executive Room. Ultra plush, new and very clean, including all Villeroy & Boch bathroom fittings, it was exactly what we needed after the train ride. Excellent full buffet breakfast on the 1st floor each day and on the 10th floor is complimentary use of their sauna, spa, steam room and gym. The staff do hover (!) and can't do enough. Good area as well as it's close to Hoan Kiem Lake and shops.
Apart from sailing on the 'Paloma' junk ship in Halong Bay, this hotel has been the highlight of our accommodation in Viet Nam. The only other junk boat that looked as good was called the 'Bhaya'. Paloma is about USD 300 per night including all meals and Bhaya is about $350 - the latter includes a 5-star dinner in a huge cave.
We paid USD 110 per night at the Silk Path and that included breakfast and wireless Internet access. Good value by any standard.
