Excellent staff, rooms, food and service. Best hotel by far on our Vietnam trip. Stayed one night but wished it had been longer. We were given a nice upgrade to Junior suite, had an excellent breakfast and staff were so helpful even taking care of our online check in for flights. Highly recommended.

Great location right in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Friendly staff and very effective check-in. Quiet and clean roboms. Breakfast is buffet or lactate. A little bit of serenity in the middle of a lot of chaos...

From the moment we landed at Hanoi everything went as planned. Our transfer was waiting for us which the hotel booked for us and whisked us to the hotel. It's located in the old quarter on Hanoi in a very busy street. If you want to experience the hustle and bustle of what Hanoi has to offer then it's the... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Before this trip, I had never visited a place so busy and bustling as Vietnam. Plus, I was not at all used to the culture and language of Vietnam. This hotel made me feel comfortable even though it was located in the craziest set of streets I have ever walked.the hotel staff made me safe,... More

Visited before and after a visit to Halong Bay. This trip was for my daughter's wedding and the manager Mr Hung Trinh organised everything. We were 31 adults and 2 toddlers arriving at different times from different parts of the world. Mr Trinh organised our transfer to the bay with Aphrodite cruises where the wedding took place on the 2nd... More

I booked this hotel based on other reviews and they weren't wrong. Firstly and most importantly, the hotel is in a fabulous location, right in the heart of the old quarter. Step outside and head in any direction for places to eat, drink and shop. The hotel was very clean and the room was well equipped with everything you could... More

Superb location in the heart of Hanoi's old quarter, lovely rooms and just outstanding service. As soon as I booked my room, the hotel emailed me offering for a airport pick... More
