Great little hotel with a nice Chinese feel. Good part of old quarter. Strongly recommend it but I do recommend people booking tours search around as they do use premium providers but costs be higher. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

We stayed two nights at Aquarious Hanoi, but split as we visited Sapa for two nights in between our stays at the hotel. The first night was a shocking experience. We were on the top floor, and I am guessing it doesn't get used a lot as the room was in poor condition. The lock on the door didn't work... More

The rate is cheap with free breakfast (all fresh and delicious), the staffs are friendly and accommodating, they can speak the English language well. The room we had is spacious. They also provide excellent and honest information about the tourist spots around Hanoi (fares, best way to go, other alternatives etc.). It is located inside the old quarters

We arrived at this hotel in the evening and were put in a tiny room with no window which smelled strongly of damp. The bathroom smelled of drainage and we were so unhappy. The hotel couldn't move us that night but were able to the next morning. The new room was a lot better but the shower was very weak.... More

I got this place for $12 a night single. It is a great location just a block or so from the cathedral and within a few minutes walk of Hoan Kiem Lake. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good enough. You have a choice of a bit of fruit and some bread and they give you a choice... More

The rooms in the newer phase of the hotel was good. the older phase was bad, room was old, heater not working, no lift and we need to walk 6 floors up. Breakfast was served upon ordering. So, get up earlier so that the kitchen can prepare your meals before your departure time.

Everything in the room and bathroom was very clean and did not see any type of bugs I will definitely stay here again because the staff is accommodating,... More

Generally I don't review for normal rated hotels but this one is too bad to resist. Worst - -No lift.. If your room is on 5th floor consider it! -Breakfast consists of disgusting fruits which are as less as possible -On top of that it is full of mosquitoes -The lady at the reception is one of the most amazing...

Located inside Hanoi's old quarter and is near a church. It is surrounded by boutiques, restaurants, souvenir shops, night market. You can go to Hoan Kiem lake in less than 5 minutes. Transportation is not a problem there. Love their chirping birds.
