Ping Diamond Hotel, Hanoi, Vietnam, 2 October 2023

A pretty basic breakfast (but I’m not complaining; at least there is a breakfast. For my first night in Hanoi, my university mistakenly put me up in a ‘love hotel’, where rooms rent by the hour and have very interesting furniture; and there was no breakfast). That being said, the offering of some bread (no butter) and eggs, no tea unless you ask for it, and, if you want, noodle soup, is very sparse indeed. I only rate this a 2/10 because the service is very good and because it is better than some who are rated lower.
