Great small hotel right in the Old Quarter of Hanoi: clean and secure rooms, solid breakfast, close to everything in the Old Quarter, but in a relatively quiet area, all for $25 for a single room, which I thought is a great value for money. Very helpful and easy-going staff, who helped me to choose a decent HaLong bay tour.

On arrival we were warmly greeted by a lady from reception with fruit juice, bananas and had a nice chat about our flight etc. We were then told after 10-15 minutes there had been a mix up with bookings and that we would not be staying in this hotel but a "sister hotel" round the road for our first night...

We stayed here for a couple of nights to begin our trip around Vietnam and Cambodia. The staff (especially hotel receptionist) were all incredibly generous, helpful and polite. Morning breakfasts (included in the price) were really delicious, with a good mix of Vietnamese or more "Western" style pancake dishes. We had a room overlooking the street with a balcony which...

A lovely room, great snacks in the room, free breakfast where you could literally eat as much as you want!, free tea coffee and muffins all day, free water, cable... More

Excellent location near the lake and shopping precincts. The rooms are spacious enough and spotlessly clean, although the shower does flood the bathroom. Thanks to May and Huyen and the rest of the staff for being so helpful and professional, and Mays' self taught English is amazing. May suggested local restaurants, shopping and bars and all were great recommendations. The... More

I was visiting this hotel for the third time, but for the first time in two years and it is as fantastic as ever. The location of course hasn't changed, so is still superb for the lake and the old quarter as well as being walking distance to many other tourist attractions/landmarks, but it is so reassuring to receive consistently...
