Was able to check in early about 9:30am which was great , breakfast is simple but does the job. The rooms are clean and the private doubles have huge beds which is great. Bathroom facilities are spot on. Overall... 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! They booked our tour to Halong Bay, and helped us to book a taxi to go to the airport, which was cheaper! There is always someone at the door and the breakfast is good too.... More

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.
