“Room though small is well designed, great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Stayed 2 nights in this property, at room 702. Love this hotel and its staff! For the price paid, it was a very comfortable stay, would not hesitate to stay again the next time.

The hotel is new, started operation in May last year. Room is small, good for one person, a little tight for two, but the room is very well designed eg position of the plugs, unlike other hotels where you have to reach it at awkward places, design of the bathroom, small yet room to move around. The sliding door ensures that it does not get in the way of the wash basin nor the toilet bowl. The only amusing thing is the rain shower head is sited at such a low position that it scraps my head, and I am only 1.63m tall. Hot water is aplenty and water pressure is very good even at the 7th floor.

The lift serves up to the 6th floor, and there is a flight of stairs to catch to go up to the top floor. Not a big problem as the hotel staff will gladly bring your luggage up and down.

Decided last minute to take a day trip to Hoa Lu and Tam Coc and booked with the hotel at USD30. It was a fantastic trip! Later, I realised that one of our trip mates paid USD38 direct to the agency which organised it.

It is very well located, many street vendors just outside the hotel. It only takes 2 minutes to reach Hoan Kiem lake, and 1 minute to the water puppet show.

I only paid USD30 a night for the stay here, the cheapest so far in all my stays in Hanoi, and its one of those that I will not hesitate to go back again.

What an absolute delight to stay in this hotel. From the moment we booked the staff were so supportive and helpful. There is a warm ambience created by all staff ( David and Hannah, in particular). Complimentary tea and coffee is available all day long in a little cafe area where you can chat with others and staff, gathering great ideas and tips for great Hanoi adventures.

We were welcomed to our room with crisp white bedlinen strewn with rose petals - little extra touches on top of spotless, comfortable rooms were very nice. Staff were happy to look after luggage when we went away for a few adventures. Additionally, they gave us great tips for package deals and airfares.

Great breakfasts set you up for a hard days travel. We felt that it was more like 5 star quality than the value for money price we paid for. It is set in the Old Hanoi section immediately across from the Green Tangerine Restaurant, one of the leading restaurants in Asia.

We would not hesitate to return to this hotel the next time we are in Hanoi.

The place is good value for money, easy too miss because of its small and narrow entrance but being fairly new everything works and the staff are all very helpful. The systematic address system helps in locating the hotel.

I booked a tour through the hotel and got all the information I need via email very promptly.

One can walk to all the happening places - so this place is a real bargain. I booked for other friends and they all approved my choice

Room Tip: The back rooms ending with "04" are quiet.

This was the first hotel we stayed at during a 3 week stay in Vietnam. We were 2 families with 4 kids. The service was outstanding- they looked after us from the minute we arrived and far exceeded their obligations. They helped organise trips, train tickets, cyclos and taxis. They offered us a room to shower in when we had a late train journey, they re-arranged our onward hotel reservations when we needed to re-schedule our trip slightly. They were incredibly efficient and helpful at every opportunity, suggesting things that would make our life easier. The rooms were great and the location fantastic. Just a short walk to the puppet theatre and the lake, and straight out the front door into the maelstrom of the Old Quarter. Would highly recommend as a starting point for international travellers arriving into Hanoi.

I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. It was fantastic. The staff were wonderful and made our stay a delight. They were friendly, bright and had lovely personalities. It is a new hotel and I'm sure the staff were hand-picked for their ability.

The location was excellent and we could walk to all the major attractions.

It was our home away from home, were we felt very comfortable coming and going. Tea and coffee were always available in the breakfast (excellent selection) room. We were in the Hanoi area for 9 nights and stayed 5 nignts on and off at the Rising Dragon Legend Hotel - using it as our base while we visited Sapa and Halong Bay.

I cannot fault it - A MUST STAY :-)

Stayed here for 4 nights in March 2013., can't fault the place staff were friendly David Trung the manager was really helpful. Organised tickets and trip to Halong Bay. Internet is good could listen to the I Player. Located right in the middle of the Old Quarter. Booked a late checkout. All in all would stay at this hotel again if went back to Hanoi

We had a wonderful experience here due to the helpful friendly staff. They arranged several activities for us including trips to Halong Bay and Hoi An, also a cooking class and other activities in Hanoi, all were excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 7 the floor have large windows and a nice view.
