“Can't fault it! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Great little hotel right in the heart of the old quarter - a stone's throw from authentic street food and the real Hanoi experience! Staff were very helpful and friendly, and the room was clean and spacious. The very best thing about this hotel is that, despite being in the very noisy old quarter, it is extremely quiet! Not a single scooter horn can be heard when you are in your room. Definitely would stay there again!

Stayed October 2013

We were here 3 nights.
It has a good location.
the rooms are clean.the receptionist was friendly. Good service.
You can book nice tours: Halong Bay ( 70 dollar), Tam Coc (30 dollar), Perfume Pergoda (30 dollar). Breakfast was simple, but ok.
This hotel was great value for the money.

I stayed there in August 2013. The people gave us excellent service from getting us cab service to recommending restaurants. The breakfasts they served was excellent. This was my first trip overseas. It was great that the staff spoke good English.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Yes it's a little more expensive them many others, but it gives great value for money. Really good rooms, great bathrooms, decent breakfasts and i liked the tours i booked too. Sapa and halung bay were bth good experiences. They do stop heliping however when they can't make any money anymore. I wanted to go south during the day and their tour operator only offered night busses, so they wouldn't even tell me how to find it. But that was the only downside of a very pleasant stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We stayed in this hotel for a total of 6 nights between our trips to Sapa and Halong Bay and experienced three different rooms. We first arrived after a very tiring train journey from Hue at 4:30am. We had to wake the poor staff, and they were very accommodating. We arrived in our room which smelled like stale smoke (we are both non-smokers) and must. Not very pleasant. Upon waking in the morning, we realized there was actually no window to the outside. Some people like this as you can sleep all day if you want, but we found it dis-orientating and kind of depressing. The staff are really nice and happy to help although we felt we got a little ripped off when we did laundry (its supposed to be $1/kg and they said they weighed it wet! what?!).
We did get two nights in a room with a balcony which was much nicer, but it had a slight sewage smell that wears on you after a while. The bathroom is pretty good, although the shower has some calcium build up on it. No tub. In one room we found out we had to switch the hot water on (after we'd both taken cold showers). The pillows on the beds aren't great and old.
Breakfast is good, with a small menu of four options which they make for you on the spot. Since I have a dairy and wheat allergy, I had to eat the same thing every morning, which gets a bit old, but there is a fruit plate which makes it a little better.
Staff are helpful and will give a map and order taxi's ect if you need. There is a computer to look things up if you need. Location is great, short walk to the scenic lake and lots of restaurants. Try Gecko (there are two within walking distance).
This was booked as part of a package, so we can't really comment on cost, but I'd hope its cheap. I wouldn't pay more than $25/night. Overall its not horrible and I'm sure there are worse - it was just our least favourite on our three week trip out of seven hotels throughout Vietnam.
