The La Storia Ruby, recently renamed from the Hanoi Elegance Ruby, is the most comfortable hotel stay of our lives, and we have traveled in 40 countries over 40 years. Our hosts, Jasmine, Jack, and Bella are friends now, as are their staff, including Linh, Andy, and Thong. Everything works. The rooms are well appointed, immaculate, and well laid out. Not obsequious but solicitous of all our needs, our hosts make our stay pleasant at all stages. Talking with them is fun and easy. The breakfasts are as abundant as you wish, and the pho (noodle soup) is to die for. Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk is like chocolate, a dessert as much as a pick-me-up. The hotel's location is great, in the old quarter of Ha Noi, where interesting little shops, cafes, and restaurants abound. Yes, you'll hear some sounds of street life and you'll have the regenerating experience of maneuvering through boundless motorbike and car traffic - which is very civil; it's all part of exuberant life here. The La Storia Ruby is close to Hoan Kiem lake, a fine park where everything is happening, from Vietnamese and visitors enjoying shade, flowers, exercise of all sorts, a temple, and water puppets. We will miss our hosts and the life of Ha Noi all dearly when we leave tonight. In fact, last night as we returned to Ha Noi from Siem Reap and Angkor Wat, thinking of all we experienced in Viet Nam and our time here from our base here in La Storia Ruby, we mulled over the idea of forgetting about going home and doing it all over again.
