Love this Hotel!from chelsey_ej
Loved This Place!from Coco21
The lounge served a full breakfast, afternoon tea and "happy hour" from 6:00 to 8:00 each evening with a good assortment of appetizers and wine, beer, hard liquor or soft drinks---all complimentary.
The executive floor staff was excellent and always ready to help us with directions, make dinner reservations, etc. The hotel is in an excellent location--right next to the Opera House and you can walk to shopping, restaurants, and many points of interest. There is a nice size pool and a reasonably well equipped exercise room. For us--another big convenience was having the United Airlines office right in the hotel.
Another big plus was complimentary internet via our laptops in the room--or you could use one of their computers in the lounge.
The only part I did not like was the fact that the closets were very small, which was surprising considering the size of the rooms.
I would go back tomorrow. It is a great place
A comfortable Stay in Hanoifrom tiger_sist
The bedroom and bathroom were decent and very clean. I'm a true fan of boutique hotels so the traditional vietnamese background/feel did not "wow" me. But I think the Hilton did a fine job by creating the contemporary atmosphere in the room with selections of contemp. furnitures, so it did not appear too dull. The bed was also comfy and the air conditioning worked alright.
The Buffet Breakfast was delicious ! Wide range of food, fruits, drinks and french pastry. We spent almost an hour slowly enjoying our meal and it filled us up til mid afternoon.
One negative point to make: we found it extremely difficult to communicate with the hotel staff. Although they all seemed very helpful and attentive but we had to repeat ourseleves everytime we would like to know or do something. May be it was just us that did not quite understand their poor english!
I would certainly recommend HIlton Opera to anybody who drops by Hanoi. Just do not expect luxury -- comfort is probably the right word!
Tacky, Over Priced and Pushyfrom nyctravelalot
As I had arrived late once I got settled I was hungry and went down stairs and asked another young man at the front desk if there was anywhere I could eat, it was 11 o’clock on a national holiday: "No" was his response. Not even thinking that maybe he should recommend room service. I went out and walked around the block and found a lovely bar that had a full menu still available.
The towels in the gym smell like they are washed in paint remover. The customer care and web site for Hilton and Hilton Honors is another catastrophe that I needn't go into. I felt like everything about the place was cheap and that I was being ripped off, that as much as they’d like you to believe it’s all about quality it’s actually about getting away with giving you as little as they can while charging as much as they can get away with. And from reading the reviews here it seems like they have succeeded marvelously. How else did Paris and Nikki get to be worth $150 million each? I've learned my lesson and promise to never stay at another Hilton ever again.
Fantastic Hotelfrom JennyVB

Convenient Location and Good Servicefrom CCN
The hotel is conveniently located near the shopping area of Hang Gai, which was where we spent most of our 5 days in Hanoi. We had expected to do a fair amount of walking tours around the city but were dismayed when we arrived to discover that crossing the roads was a rather life endangering experience. Fortunately, we stumbled upon Hang Gai where the many silk shops kept us fully occupied. In particular, we loved the shop at 78 Hang Gai - the proprietress is an excellent tailor who produced 3 jackets, 2 blouses and 2 skirts in 30 hours, all of them beautifully finished. Hadong Silk at 102 Hang Gai was our other favourite for the modern designs and beautiful colours.

Top Local Tips for Hanoi
Hanoi Kids are fantastic! We made arrangements to meet members of the Hanoi Kids our first night in Hanoi. They took us around the Old Quarter and the night market. We had an excellent time! They were great to talk to, told us about life for them, and overall were wonderful guides for us. It was nice to make a personal connection with people in the city too. I only wish we had more time to have them show us some of the major tourist attractions. I couldn't recommend the experience enough.
Watch that taxi meter ! Don't hesitate to insist cabbies use their meter. Know what the initial cost is and check the meter when you start. Keep an eye on the meter to be sure it's not purposefully overcharging. Avoid taking taxi's that are waiting outside of tourist destinations.
Halong Bay We booked a trip to Halong Bay through a tour guide from Frommers. We had a english speaking guide who was really great. Had wonderful chats with him about his family, life in Vietnam, etc. He was very informative. It was the best thing we did. We saw the country side (pigs on scooters, what a hoot). Drove through a town which was a coal mining town, very very polluted. Must have a lot of lung diseases in this area. There was a layer of soot on everything. When we got to Halong Bay, it was crazy but we had a boat all to ourselves, We noticed other boats were full to capacity with various tour groups. Our boat consisted of myself, my husband another couple and their daughter. We had a wonderful seafood lunch and cruise around the bay. It is really magnificent and must be seen. I can't remember what the total cost was for the trip but was well worth it. Maybe -$200 for the lot of us for the whole day including lunch. The drive is a few hours so it's a whole days trip.
