Pro: A tourist hotel just in front of one of the major shopping centres (Vincom Tower with lotsa foreign brands & cinema & restaurants), near to Hoan Kiem (walking distance less than 30 minutes), very near to local & international food attractions (Ba Trieu, Pho Hue, Trieu Viet Vuong, Mac De, Vincom. etc) & lake (Bay Mau). The standard rooms are small so is priced affordably for tourist with major attractions within walking distance. You can get all kinds of food in surrounding area from local to eastern and western including fast food.
Con: No swimming pool (got one but 99% of the time no water and its really small abt 5ft X 5ft in size so cant be classified as a swimming pool more like a bath tub). Sauna facilities are bad. Odour due to cooking in the restaurant kitchen finds its way to the rooms on the right wing (after exiting lift) and the lifts especially in the early morning. The restaurant morning buffet is pretty fixed everyday.....instant noodle, bacon, corn flakes, porridge, just local stuff not something you can live with for long stays.
The real complaint is the ongoing construction work noise (drilling & hammering) next door (a norm to see construction everywhere in hanoi) even on weekends. Make you feel like getting out of the room n not stay in. And never make any taxi reservations at the front desk to the airport, wanted to avoid hassle of looking outside, real bad experience tat one....very pricey (hotel charges higher than norm) and the taxi driver paid less by hotel (~50% of wat u paid hotel) so the driver come asking for tips at the end of the trip to make up his loss.
