Joseph's Hotel is owned by a New Zealander who's lived for a pretty long time in Vietnam. The rooms have these modern, simple, clean, cut lines and I love the shower! It feels like I'm in a tropical rain storm or a waterfall as the water falls down on top of my head.
But the absolute best part about it is that a few of the rooms face the beautiful St. Joseph's Cathedral (hence Joseph's Hotel) which is now also known as the Hanoi Cathedral. The stained glass in the cathedral are literally heavenly, installed by Parisians in 1904. Despite the American War / Vietnam War, the glass windows are perfectly intact.
