Trip to Singapore, Vietnam & Hong Kong on Qatar Airways Qsuite

It´s time again to qualify for British Airways Gold status and with this first trip to Asia flying on Qatar Airways, I will get 560 tier points. This trip is an open jaw, flying from Oslo to Singapore and back from Hong Kong to Stockholm, booking flights on Scoot, Vietjet and Jetstar to fly us within Asia. With my second trip (to Singapore in August) and my third trip (to Bangkok in December granting Qatar Airways stays with OneWorld), I will get more than 1500 tier points which is more than enough to get OneWorld emerald status again. Also during this trip, we stayed at 8 different Hilton properties making my total stay to 19, and closer to the 30 stays needed to renew my Hilton Diamond status.

Check-in

We arrived at the hotel around 1pm and was welcomed by a friendly associate who informed us of the upgrade to a suite room. She also greeted me a Happy Birthday which was cool 😍 Together with the usual helpful information, we also got the Welcome letter.

CONCLUSION

Having stayed at the nearby Hilton Garden Inn Hanoi the night before, I was excited to see how this hotel would compare. I appreciated the fact that we were upgraded to a suite room as a Diamond member and that we could check-in earlier than usual. The staff I had contact with were all very friendly. The room we got was very spacious and even if the style is a bit outdated, I thought the design as a whole still depicts a local Vietnamese touch 👍 The offering in the Executive Lounge during the afternoon tea and evening cocktails was extensive and the breakfast buffet in the main restaurant was even better, even having a vegetarian corner. The location is unbeatable too as it is just a few steps away from the Opera House and all other attractions. For the price we paid, it was definitely worth it and would highly recommend the Hilton Hanoi Opera to all 😍
