4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Very friendly staff who take the time to chat to you. Rooms are spacious by Vietnamese standards, very comfortable. Clean, modern bathrooms with Western facilities. Excellent central location in the Old Quarter. No elevator in hotel, but staff are very helpful in carrying all the luggage. Out-does its 3-star rating. Excellent value for money. I wohld happily stay there again.

Overall once in my room the hotel and staff are very good. The problem is they only have 2 or 3 good rooms, when you arrive and the manager sits you down with maps and juices, you are just waiting for the catch, and that comes after 5 mins waffle, (only cos i stopped his flannel, otherwise id probably still be listening to him). They tell you the suite is not available, but they have an alternative. let me tell you its not. they have no lift, and its pokey, small with no balcony. All I can say is dig your heals in, threaten tripadvisor and reporting to booking agent. They actually are selling the good rooms to highest bidder, and that will not be you if you book with agoda or booking.com. once in the suite its a lovely big room with big bed and fantastic view. Just don't settle for less. We saw a succession of people all going through the same process each day, often they would be there at breakfast the next day shouting and saying they are not staying, cos they settled for the back room having had no choice the night before. luckily i got the room id booked finally.

Room Tip: fight for the room you booked, or go down the road, there are plenty of other hotels in that price b...

Great location, very friendly and helpful staff.
Both the day and night receptionists went out of their way to ensure that our stay was awesome. They are both very attentive and sincere, and even changed our room as my husband is a very light sleeper and the bell was waking him up at 5am! It's next to St Joseph Cathedral.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back is a bit quieter as the hotel is next to St Joseph Cathedral

Just stayed here for 3 nights and felt right at home! The staff were attentive and were always offering us drinks and food.

We also had some good yarns with Peter and he even saw us out to the taxi when we left.

Location-wise, it's smack bang in the middle of the old quarter so I thought it was very central. An easy stroll through the busy streets to the night markets, prison, lake and everything really!

The cathedral bells do go off quite often and it's a tad noisy but it's in the middle of the city so to be expected.

We had a good time and would definitely stay here again!

Only stayed one night but really enjoyed the hotel. Got the deluxe dbl room, everthing was in mint condition. Only the view from the balcony that was disappointing..well, was already expecting that. Special thanks to Lisa at the reception who was very helpful and organised us a halong bay cruise with Glory Cruises. Which by the way was really nice!

A very nice hotel that can revisit to stay during next trip to Hanoi. The rooms are big and clean, with a small balcony. Staff are very friendly with intensive care. They recommended good tour for us to go to Ha Long Bay. Excellent services and they are very accommodating tor our needs.

We stayed at this hotel over the New Year and it was excellent. The welcome drinks and fruit platter was nice and refreshing. The room was spacious and clean with 2 double beds. Despite the small restaurant, the ala-carte breakfast superb. The staff (Martin and Tuan) were nice and helpful too.

The location is good and near to lots of shops, restaurants and Spa & Massage outlets. Will definitely go back to this hotel if I visit Hanoi again.
