Check in was friendly and efficient. The ambience was cosy and welcoming. We had booked a deluxe room, which was on the 9th floor in the hotel's new section. It had everything we needed including a laptop. What I really like was the green approach , no plastic bags in the bins, no plastic wrapping around the bathroom accessories and... More

We were impressed with the hotel. The staff was welcoming, and gracious. They helped us book an excursion, and gave us a great restaurant recommendation. The location is good, plenty of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. The room was smaller, but well appointed, and enough space for our family of four. The breakfast buffet was really good, with... More

We stayed for four nights at this hotel in the old quarter. It is in the center of all the action, and is beautifully appointed. However, as if that wasn't enough, the best thing about this hotel are the staff, who are helpful and welcoming. The staff really went above and beyond in making recommendations, answering our questions, and helping... More

Could not find a fault with the place. Right in the mix in the old quarter, we had a spacious and elegantly decorated room that was so quiet I could not believe I was staying in the middle of hanoi! Staff were beyond helpful (one in particular who I think was called sophie was wonderfully helpful and charming). We stayed... More

This small but tidy clean and welcoming hotel situated in the old quarter, made a convenient, comfortable and cheap stay from the noise and hustle of this busy city! We had interconnecting rooms with our teenage children, which was adequate in size and both had separate bathrooms. It was presented in a clean and tidy manner. The Cafe was superb... More

We stayed here for one night and unfortunately out plane was 6hours late so we didn't get in until 12:45am. Staff were still waiting when we arrived luckily and were very helpful. We stayed in a deluxe twin room and the room was beautiful. Rose petals were on our beds, the room was spacious and the bathroom was clean and... More

In the crazy, noisy, frantic Old Quarter of Hanoi is this little gem of a hotel. We spent one night here and wished it were longer. They arranged a car to pick us up at the airport and then greeted us with fruit smoothies upon arrival. Staff were excellent, room lovely with fresh fruit and flowers. Definitely recommend eating in... More
