Don't be mistake by the title! The room is fine, and the hotel is at good location. Only a few step to Sword Restore Lake, and many restaurants around. They also have good staff. At first, we booked a twin room through agoda, but we changed to Triple room on arrival day directly to the hotel (another friend joined in).... More

After reading reviews about this hotel i felt compelled in adding my own view. I had stayed a couple times since last April 2013 and later in November of the same year. The personnel was nice, breakfast meals were limited to a menu but offering both western and Asian type of breakfast . In the middle of a quiet street... More

Booked online for our first 2 nights in Hanoi. Then decided that it was good enough for our entire trip, so we continued staying on at this hotel for an additional 3 nights after visiting Ha Long bay. Great location - on a quiet street, not many vehicles' noises at night; but took me a while to get used the... More

We booked this hotel on booking.com 2 weeks before we arrived in Ha noi. The hotel sent me an email the next day confirming the reservation and asked if I needed a cab from the airport- I replied No. We arrived to find that they had double booked us and tried to blame booking.com who they said, didn't send them...

We booked this hotel after seeing such good reviews on this website. Although we liked the room, we had problems with the hotel staff and eventually had to leave. The hotel itself, although nothing spectacular, is a nice place to stay in Hanoi. It's in a good location in the heart of the old quarter, and it was quite nice... More

I stayed at Rising Dragon for about a week, extending my stay a few times and the staff was accommodating of that. My room was quite large. The shower was warm with decent pressure. Bed was large and comfortable; it was not as hard as other beds I've experienced in Vietnam. Wifi was strong, TVs had good channels. Be aware... More

My sister and I stayed here while travelling Vietnam. We stayed here twice. The rooms are large and clean, with quaint little balconies overlooking the rooftops. The beds here are like all beds in Vietnam; hard. There's nothing that can be done about this, I guess this is just Asian style. I loved the location of this place, the surrounding... More

I quite enjoyed the location of this hotel - it is close to the old quarter but tucked away on a rather quiet street with not too much traffic (if you know Hanoi, you know to appreciate this). We stayed here during Christmas time, so being right next to the cathedral meant we got to hear some of the Christmas... More
