The hotel is in walking distance to Hoan Kiem Lake, Thang Long Water Puppet Theater, St. Joseph's Cathedral and several other attractions. They help to arrange trips to Ha Long Bay and Sa Pa (total 4 nights). Amazingly, they help to keep our luggage while we did those trips and allow us to use bathroom to refresh ourself, even though...

Hotel is right next to the lake, walking distance to the most amazing attractions. The staff was welcoming and can give you helpful information for traveling. Impeccably clean room with good ventilation. It has a nice lobby where they offer complimentary fruit and drink for their Guests. In short, hotel service was faultless. Absolutely loved our stay here.
