First impressions: The hotel was OK, but nothing to write home about. Middle of the road. With room rates ranging from 22 GBP pp per night (standard room in low season) to 25 GBP per night (deluxe room in peak season), it is at par among its peers for its 2-star rating (some say 3-stars). Grade B.
Pros: Within a 15-min walking distance to the Old French Quarter, Hoan Kiem Lake and to the Water Puppet Theater. Buffet breakfast, internet access (2 in the lobby) and private parking are complimentary. An ATM machine is close by. The staff are friendly.
Cons: The furnishings are colonial-style and a bit tired. Our room did not have a window. Although not really the hotel's fault, the traffic outside never stops. About 2 million mopeds per minute funnel through the front street. If you wait for the green light, you'll never cross the street. The trick is to "challenge" oncoming traffic by crossing boldly (read: jaywalk) & with obvious moves. Do NOT -- at any time -- pause or hesitate as you cross, otherwise drivers will fail to anticipate your moves and ***Wham!!*** Goodbye, Vietnam!! ***
Verdict: Adequate for a few nights. Typical budget hotel but, like I said, nothing to write home about.
