From tubs to toilets, Vietnam hotel opens with gold-plated pizzazz
A five-star hotel in Vietnam ese capital Hanoi has opened with a twist that it hopes will attract guests with intimately expensive tastes: gold-plated bath tubs, basins and even toilets, all housed behind a massive golden exterior.
The hotel, owned by Hoa Binh Group and managed by U.S.-based Wyndham Hotels & Resorts Inc, stands in stark contrast to its surrounding weather-worn Soviet-era buildings.“At the moment, there is no other hotel like this in the world,” said Nguyen Huu Duong, majority owner and chairman of Hoa Binh Group.
Hotel facilities include a 24 karat gold-tiled infinity pool on the rooftop, while inside guest rooms, bathrooms are laced with yellow metal. From $250 a night, the hotel is in the same price bracket as rival luxury accommodation in the city.“It has changed my mind about what luxury can be. Other luxury hotels usually use marble as tiles, but here everything is gold-plated down to the washing basin,” said 62-year-old guest Luong Van Thuan, himself a hotel owner.
Vietnam has been relatively successful in containing the coronavirus outbreak with only 350 or so cases and no reported deaths. Duong said if not for the pandemic, the hotel would likely be fully booked with international guests.Around a tonne of gold was used to cover the hotel, said Duong, a Vietnam War veteran and former cyclo taxi driver who made his fortune in construction and property.

Ffs How many malnourished children would have feed instead of building this shtty hotel poverty malnourished malnutrition SDG SDGs2030 SDGReport
Very cheap Dotard upset he didn't do it first so come tomorrow work is starting Waste of money taht could muche better been used in the community!!! tacky as fuk I still think Trump had a hand in the decorations. It's so gaudy I don't see how anyone thinks this looks good Que derroche de dinero innecesario
When i read the news i feels very shame . The officials used the corruption money to built the hotel . If we have a rights to talk out i think Vietnamese people will tell the truth for the world Eeew. 🤮🤮🤮🤮 fkn gross Gauche and gaudy...Trump would love it 🤣 Oh no no no. I've *heard* about the Hanoi Hilton
luxury real estate from bribes and land grabbing from poor peoples. What’s fucking pride? All the investment will be gone ... it’s gone :) Finally there's something that will get Trump to go to Vietnam Truly the age of mammon Looks like Trump went thru there. Yuck. Can you pour bleach into a gold toilet? Asking for a friend...
Well we know one who will have to see it. Are you sure its not a realDonaldTrump property How are they going to prevent people from scraping the gold off the wall? Lol ibrahim_ea Should've done silver or bronze. T...r...u...m...p? No mention of the golden shower... Still a one party Communist controlled country.
Vulgar ! Vietnam city development is not as good as China’s county. Is there any people who can afford to use that kind of hotels? Gold plated anything is not high clad or taste. It’s just tacky. Tacky tastes you mean Hoa Binh is also a member of hispanic chamber of commerce in D.C area. In early years, the owner used to ride his motocycle to buy lunch for his employees. Vietnamese growing economy reflects on its growth of motocycles. It's quite challenging to face the massive street bikers.
Ew? Trump have a share? Shit like this makes me contemplate the validity of looting. Fucking disgusting waste of money. Another Trump tower........ Impostor_Rizwan Trump and Chinese tuhao will love it, they have the same taste Wait, I thought the Communists won eh buset Because people are pathetic & need to be made to feel special, by being convinced that their money makes them so. So instead of feeling great about donating b/millions to charities saving animals kids schools the planet, etc. They rather sit in their own dirty gold bath water.
