Well located in a three cornered junction if I am not mistaken. Very spacious rooms. Might have been the residence of a French national.Very clean. Good Breakfast. A welcome relief from the horrid stay in Saigon The furniture in the room was antique. The management has made every effort to maintain it in that manner I presume. Any alteration would take away the vibes of the architecture. Overall a very good stay and a very good hotel. Can recommend without any hesitation to families. .
Nice old building from French colony times. Sadly it is not well maintained and very dirty. The rooms have old furniture and the bathroom was also quite old and dirty. Our room hot water is not working. The location was good with comfortable walking distance to the lake and a short cab ride to the Old Quarter.
Hotel is in a good location – about a 10 min walk from the hanoi lake. Hotel is established in 1926. Very well maintained property & well decorated. Reception staff very helpful. We felt comfortable walking around the area both day and night. Restaurant service is good, Food is yummy and delicious. Natural light is very less inside the room; you fill darkness in day time also. Feelings like you are stay in Historical place.
This hotel was probably grand, 60 or so years ago. The staff are unhelpful, and do not go out of their way to assist guests (unsure what they are like with Vietnamese guests but they certainly weren’t helpful to us as foreign guests). The decor in the rooms is dated, my room featured a set of double doors out onto a balcony- there was a 2/3cm gap when the doors were closed meaning the noise of the traffic/street was audible 24/7. The air con systems are very old and loud. The bathroom had mould around the edge of the tiles and was in desperate need of re-grouting, the bath itself was stained and a dirty grey colour. The bed sheets had marks on them and were damp. The room smelt badly of cigarettes the first night I stayed in it. Many of the doors to the rooms had warped so badly that there were large gaps and they did not close completely, adding to the noise from the corridor. Breakfast claimed to be open 6-9:30am but on our last morning when we had to check out of the hotel early, I went down to breakfast at 6:05am to find hardly any food out...I’m pretty sure the boiled eggs that were out had been cooked the day before and left in a warmer, they certainly did not taste fresh. Unfortunately, other hotels in the local vicinity were fully booked so we were unable to move to another hotel on the first night. We were also unable to change rooms as apparently the hotel was fully booked. The whole place is in need of serious renovation. …
Stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour. Hotel is in a good location – about a 10-15 min walk from the centre of town. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable however the décor was a little outdated. Staff were very friendly and spoke good English. Breakfast was very good – large variety of cold and hot foods including cereal, toast, fruit, Pho, noodles, eggs, bacon, etc. Good hotel but not right in the city centre (10 min walk).
