This is an excellent stay in the center, only ten walking minutes from Hoan Kiem Lake in the Old Quarter. The airport pick-up was well organized and the staff is very attentive and friendly. They even gave me the superior room for the standard price, because it was available for 2 nights. The room was spacious, bright, very clean and... More
