Centrally located, a block from the lake, and literally a block away from everything. It's less than a 5 minute walk away from the expat streets so it's much quieter at night. For around $15 a night I find it a great value. I got a queen sized bed with AC and all other amenities. The room was clean and... More

The staff is nice and helpful. Also the location is very convenient. But the rooms are that humid that we prefered sleep in our sleeping bags. I wouldn't recommand it considering that you can find way better around for the same price. (They have increased their price coz of the "good reviews")

I know this hotel quite well. Because I have a friend who worked there before and I also booked rooms for some Chinese friends in September 2013 (I'm working as a freelance tour guide). The hotel is located in the heart of the city centre. From here, you can easily visit the Old Quarter. That's very interesting. You just go... More

We turned up at 2am without a booking and negotiated a room for 3 nights. Very clean, quiet and comfortable with extremely helpful and trustworthy staff. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. I'd also add that you should make your trip bookings through the inhouse agent as you'll be able to raise any issues there and then. Under no circumstances... More

We couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Great value for the price. Brilliant location near the lake and old city. The rooms were clean and tidy and we had a nice balcony overlooking the street. Noisy but fun to watch. All the staff were exceedingly helpful. Going above and beyond in what I expected. Even sending someone along with us... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here before and after the trip to Halong Bay that the hotel organised for us! Both rooms were very clean with the most comfortable beds we had in south east Asia. Value for money is unbeatable! The highlight is without doubt the friendly and helpful staff who were fantastic!
