We stayed for two nights in the Church Boutique Hotel (care, there are at least of this name in Hanoi) in Hang Gai, while exploring the city of Hanoi.
The hotel has one of those narrow frontages that are so easy to miss, but once you enter the lobby the class of the hotel is evident. Smart and friendly staff were there to greet us later to give us good advice on the city geography.
Our sixth-floor room was reasonably sized, with good quality decor and a layout that made the most of the space. Although we had large windows overlooking the street, traffic noise was not a problem. Our friend, however, did not fare as well, being given a small room with no windows on the second floor.
Breakfast is served on the mezzanine; the usual buffet formula of hot and cold food was available, with efficient staff looking after the hot drinks. Beyond breakfast, catering is very limited, but being located within the old quarter of Hanoi, you barely have to go out the front door for a good choice of restaurants.
Having been on the move for a week, we needed some clothes washed. The hotel would have charged in excess of 1m Dong for our 3Kg of laundry. A short walk down the road we found a travel shop who did a very good same day service for only 75,000 Dong. Quite a saving.
No gym or pool, but then this isn't a large hotel, so I wouldn't expect such facilities.
All things considered, a very good place to stay if you plan to eat out.
