Initial experience in Hanoi can be intimidating or overwhelming to anyone from the Western world. The traffic is chaotic and crazy, streets meander and change names in a few blocks, the language, food (among best in the world, especially on the streets) and crossing the street can be a suicidal experience. But staff at Hanoi Amazing Hotel helps melt all the challenges away.
The hotel staff is friendly, accommodating and very helpful. They went out of their way to make our visit to Hanoi pleasant. The service (from kitchen to front desk) is better than any 5 stars hotel in North America. Liza is amazing in finding the tour that is most suited for your need (budget or luxury) and she would do her best to get the best deal to suit your needs.
We booked a suite for our stay. The definition of suite here basically mean a larger room with sitting area and a coffee table. It does not mean separate living and sleeping room but it is very roomy. If you arrive during the day and find yourself in a room facing the main street, don't worry about the street noise. It is quiet down by 9 pm. The hotel is located on a quieter off street in the lake district and scooter traffic is relatively slow as compared to other around the corner. The only slight draw back is shower. As in most budget hotels in Vietnam, each room has its own hot water tank and it is a small tank. And do not expect unlimited hot water. Prepare to have 3-5 minute hot showers and a short wait between showers for the hot water to heat up again. Very comfortable beds.
I highly recommend you to check out this hotel and their incredible staff.
Tips: Inevitably, you are going to get rip off one time or another and pay more than what the locals pay from food to fake taxi that has a meter running on speed. Always ask for the price of any services and agree on it beforehand including eating on the street. BTW, sit down on those little plastic stools and eat with the locals on the street. Most of the time, we never knew what we were getting exactly but it was almost always great. And we never got sick from street. I got sick eating at The Green Tangerine! Go figures!
