We only stayed one short night in this hotel and missed breakfast due to early flight. Nevertheless we quickly noticed this was the best hotel in Hanoi we stayed in (Asia Star and Apple being the other two). Rooms were spacious and clean, bathrooms could have been nicer, but all in all we enjoyed our stay.

Loved this hotel. Great location within walking distance of where the jetstar airport bus drops you off in the old quarter. Very close to the lake which is lovely for running/walking around in the mornings. Lively area to stay in, in Hanoi. Staff all very friendly and helpful, left our bags there while staying overnight in Ha Long bay with... More

This hotel has it all! Location, price, comfy rooms, nice breakfast and most of all - the staff. They planned a great affordable trip for me to HaLong Bay and Sapa that was so interesting and so much fun. Tran Keny was so helpful that I cannot thank him enough. A sign in the lobby expresses their best wish for... More

Excellent hotel for cheap yet comfortable accommodation. The location couldn't be better - in the middle of Hanoi - within walking distance of loads of attractions, so much to see and do. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly, they helped plan multiple day trips and a tour to and around Ha Long Bay. The breakfast buffet... More

Great hotel, great city, people and place far nicer than Saigon which is impersonal and seedy. Visit Hoa Lo prison (Hanoi Hilton), the lake, the military museum and the water puppet show. See Ho chi minh mausoleum for soviet era feel and his private lodgings to get a feel for the man.

Clean rooms, friendly staff and a low low price. It's located in the middle of Old Quarter and is on an intersection making it so strategically located that it's hard to refuse. What really surprised me is the rooms have virtually everything you'll need except for an iron. If you're looking for a place to stay but don't fancy dorm... More
