Not all the rooms are as great though. The second night they asked me to change rooms because they needed the twin beds. The 2nd room was almost as good (smaller, no comfy coach),... More

Our room was large, comfortable, and clean (even if the bathroom was a touch small). The staff made our time in Hanoi go smoothly, offering us enthusiastic and sincere tips for seeing the city and surrounding area, and not just trying to book us for whatever tour they could get the best commission for. When we did have a problem,... More

I and 2 friends stayed for 3 nights. Pros: The rooms are quite good, very clean. Location is perfect! The staff is excellent, extremely helpful!

The hotel staff was very friendly and courteous, the room was decent and clean. The breakfast and tea / coffee superb. But the hotel has 7 rooms one on top of the other and lacks a lift. The bathroom was smaller and a person of my size (large) could manage, but a slightly larger person (XL) could not have managed!

The place is in the centre of Hanoi, so you can go walking almost everywhere. The staff is very helpful and good people. The rooms are big, very clean and nice. The bathroom is very small but clean, everything else makes up for it.

We got to Hanoi late at night, and the Taxi driver got lost trying to find the place! But he rang the hostel for directions and we got there in the end! The airport is about 45-60 mins in a taxi. The people at the hostel were very very friendly. We got a morning wake up call the next day,... More
