design love, this could be anything, travel


So, we’re off to the land of pho, ao dais and banh mi in September! Neither M nor I have ever been, so I’m looking forward to exploring Hanoi together. We’re also planning to visit a second city or town – maybe Halong Bay.

As a treat, we’ll spend the first 4 nights at the French-colonial Sofitel Metropole (Accor Advantage member rates – I love you).

This is the room we’re staying in – cosy, isn’t it? Love the grey walls and that black and white wallpaper.

And now, this…

… is probably the suite bathroom. Woot!

Crossing my fingers for a free upgrade.

  3. Hey, my boyfriend is also an Accor member…didnt know that Hanoi has such a great looking Sofitel…gotta check that out if I ever go. Having said that, Accor do have plenty of good deals everywhere….one of my two favs are Vie Hotel in Bangkok and IBIS in Seoul.
