Hanoi - Valentine's Evening [Part 7]

14 February 2012 @ Hanoi, Vietnam

The third place we stayed during this trip is at Meracus Hotel. We checked in immediately once we reach Hanoi town from Ha Long Bay.

The entrance to the hotel looks really grand and majestic. Even the interior is decorated lavishly.

We were ushered to our room and we got upgraded for free again!
There's a laptop, flat screen tv, a plate of fruits, wine, water and tidbits.

And rose petals were decorated in the shape of heart on the bed to welcome us! I don't know if it's just for Valentine's or they do it everyday...? But it's a very nice effort they've put in.

Added our own touch to it

Needless to say, the bathroom was very clean. There's even a power spray at the shower area to give you a little back massage while you're taking your bath. Brilliant!

Last but not least, a personalized letter for us on a hand-drawn postcard. How lovely...

Later in the evening, we headed out to Gecko Restaurant for Valentine's dinner. There are few branches of Gecko around the town of Hanoi. Guess it must be doing pretty well.

We had appetizers, main course and desserts. The food is good but they're not typical Vietnamese cuisine.

We took our time to finish up our romantic dinner and then headed straight to the Water Puppet Theatre located a couple blocks away to catch our "movie". More on that in my next post. Billy, out.
