Booked this hotel for our return from Sapa for one night but arrived back from Sapa first thing in the morning so paid an extra half day's tariff to check in at 5am. This included breakfast. Have heard this is the norm in Hanoi so after 12 very long hours on the train back from Sapa we were happy to pay. Rooms were ready, they were expecting us and check in was very straight forward and friendly. We booked a suite at the front of the hotel with a balcony (rm 801). Huge room, huge bathroom. Not much Vietnamese character at this hotel but very nice rooms with all the mod cons including a small room service menu (the kids used this). We booked a second room for our kids. I think it was a "deluxe" room (805). Smaller than ours but a very good bathroom. This room was at the back of the hotel so no noise if that is a problem for you. We negotiated a slighter cheaper rate for the two rooms, so bear in mind if you are a walk-in that this is possible. Friendly staff, pretty good breakfast including pho of both persuasions. Not the cheapest and it is more of a "western style" hotel, but fantastic location and nice staff. BTW, there is a small gym and contrary to a previous review, it has air-con - you just need to switch it on yourself as with most places in Hanoi, they don't leave the air-con on all the time when a room isn't being used. Thought this might be useful to know.
