Return to Hanoi the second time for a longer stay. The staff is always so helpful and efficient, I always feel welcome. The location is perfect. Within walking distance of many great attractions, and close to the train station. The room still the same as the last time, a little bit dated but nonetheless it got cozy feeling.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Good price and convenient location. Within walking distance of most main attractions and a cheap taxi ride if it's too hot to walk. Room was comfy with cozy bed. Curtains and balcony door shut out all the heat from outside and air con kept the room cool. Will definitely be returning.

This is a small hotel that had been recommend to us for its quiet location. We had a deluxe room on the second floor with cozy bedroom. The rooms are a little old but clean and have everything we needed. They provide a simple but ample breakfast as well. Definitely would stay again.

This is a good hotel for a business stay because it is located at the edge of town in a small street but really close to my company building. Metro station is also 2 minute walking. If you want to visit the town catch a taxi, it only take 10 minutes to the center. There are several restaurants around the... More

This is not a luxury hotel. They provide decently courteous staff with clean, quiet big rooms. Free wi fi and breakfast is usual buffet. It is within walking distance of main sights like the Temple of Literature, Hoa Lo Prison. It might take from 10-15 minutes walking to reach Old Quarter.

Location is just near metro station and in a small quiet street. Breakfast was quite great with a wide choice to suit all tastes. The room was very clean and comfortable , beds were soft, and the bathroom had all the shampoos and toilet requirements. The lift's problematic, you need to walk from 9th floor upward and carry luggage.

Stayed here twice in a tour as a couple, our room was little small but lovely, clean and quiet. The wi-fi was free and strong, a safe, fridge, tv, air-con, a large window view to the street below - everything you need. 2 min walk from Train Station, lots of restaurants around with great food. The street is very quiet.... More
