Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

In many brochures I've read this Opera was built according to Paris Garnier Opera house. In my modest opinion, it is nice, specially for Asia, but totally incomparable with Paris'
Nice pass by attraction to have some photos.

Lots of marble stairs and no helpers to guide you on them. Very nice seat and loved the orchestra pit.

This is located in the main district of Hanoi. It displays French architecture with beautiful columns and the facade. A must visit place. Inside is wonderful with lavish furnishing.

A visit to the Hanoi Opera House is a must-do for any traveler to the city. From the lavish furnishings to the ornate columns and striking facade, the majestic building will leave you in awe. The grandeur of the structure is matched only by the quality of the performances that take place within its walls. Don't miss out on this unique experience - you won't regret it!

Great architecture but no inside visit! Clearly this a architectural and cultural landmark in the city. However, there is no possibility for a tour inside -- or even much access outside e.g., to the gardens. Rather a disappointment that this landmark does not seem to have tours given other cities open their opera houses.
It has been restored/maintained though.

Amazing building looks like it should be in the Center of Paris not Vietnam. It’s amazing that the building is still standing let alone in such an amazing condition.
