I am not exaggerating at all, Rising Dragon II was the best hotel I have ever stayed in for so many reasons. I live in Vietnam now, and I had to stay in Hanoi for a month during August. My organization had me stay in Rising Dragon II for the entire month, and I could not be happier that they did. First of all, the hotel is new and and incredibly clean, and the rooms are nicely decorated, with refrigerators, teapots, a computer, and pretty wooden floors. Like any hotel in Vietnam, the rooms are a bit small, but almost all hotels in Hanoi's Old Quarter are the same. The Old Quarter was also a great location, it's very busy there but it's right in the middle of everything so it's the best neighborhood for tourists.
But what really made the Rising Dragon unique was the service. The hotel staff was so incredibly kind to me, and after a month, I felt like they were my family. This meant a lot as Hanoi can be a stressful place for someone new to Vietnam. Every day when I came back to the hotel they greeting me with smiles and questions about my day. When I left the Rising Dragon, the hotel staff threw a party for my friends and I with delicious food from their restaurant. They also drove us to the train station and went through a lot of trouble to make sure that we got onto the train with all of our luggage okay. Every time I go back to Hanoi, I stay at the Rising Dragon, and it's like visiting old friends.
