“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Ms. Nhung and Mr. Peter were great. Actually all the staff was wonderful. Overall, it's a very clean and well maintained site that is well oriented to discover Hanoi. Breakfast was great and had a wonderful view. The only area that can be marked down is the wifi signal is low and its was difficult to hold a signal. You guy's were great, and I hope to return some time soon.
Mr. Schmidt

Room Tip: I stayed in 2 rooms (403 and 603) and both were very quiet, especially considering the constant use...

Good location, friendly staff especially to Ms Hang and Bellboy and Chef. Need to improve on Wifi signal strength. Low signal in the hotel room. Good breakfast. Good mid price Hotel. Staff are super friendly and very helpful. Our luggage was safely stored here while we traveled to Ha Long Bay. When returned from Ha Long Bay we will upgraded to a Bigger room.

It is a stone's throw away from the best ice-cream in Hanoi. So had ice-cream on daily basis. The twin rooms eg. 3-01, 4-01 have city view and is spacious. Old quarter is a busy area and you'd soon find out every motorist is pressing the horn, so it does get noisy.

if you travel in budget, but want to be near all the tourist place and activity in Hanoi. i believe this will be one of the best hotel to do with.
Hoan Kiem lake is just 1 block behind. a long the street , you will find everything you need as tourist. fodd, shops, souvenir, cafe, drinks, paintings, silk, even the weekend market is just a throw stone from here.
the staffs are pretty helpful, they will attend to your need instantly. they help us with taxi, printing boarding pass and even checking for cruise.
wifi is available free of charge.
what else to ask for such a budget hotel.
The room is akward, tacky but quite clean.if you just nee to sleep and do not bother so much about design. it should be ok.

Room Tip: seems calling the the hotel directly can get better room rate.

Love the location - so near the lake. I can't find any fault with this low cost hotel. Clean rooms. Adequate toiletries, cable tv, firm mattress, quiet and peaceful, strong wifi signals in rooms and up in breakfast area. Friendly staff , responsive too ( air con leaked some water one evening ).. Decent breakfast ... There are a few quiet and reasonably priced eating places just down the st in the evening... And in the mornings/day , hole-in-wall pho stalls with Viet-style seating arrangements .... It's not the ritz, but for the price, it's good value for money .

This hotel is a 3 minutes walking distance to the lake. There is so much to see and do around here. Nice restaurant outside the hotel and nice sports pubs around the corner. Some rooms do not have windows and some roooms have windows that face the staircase inside the building. Bad thing was that i spotted a maintanence staff leave a guest room door open when nobody was inside and head elsewhere. Called the reception to inform them on this security problem and they sent someone up.

Room Tip: Request for a room with a window if you're particular about it.
