I booked this place having read the glowing reviews and must say I was disappointed. I was looking for somewhere special, but reasonable for my wife's 30th birthday. Having been used to paying $30 in Thailand/Laos for somewhere of a pretty high standard I thought that this place would be a step up, but we we're mistaken. We got the 2th floor room which very noisy, the room was very small. The hotel near the church.
Even for being in the middle of the city and close to everything you need, the hotel still is in a small and quiet street with almost no traffic. But as soon as you go around the corner you have all the shops, spots and places you need in front of you. Just a few minutes walking away is the famous St. Joseph cathedral built in 1887. At the same distance is the Hoan Kiem lake which is the perfect place for morning gymnastics, or just watch the locals doing Tai Chi in the morning, and relaxing at any time of the day on one of the many benches.
Not a very welcoming environment at all.
