“Brand spanking new - a hidden gem!”
Reviewed September 6, 2009

We took a punt on this one because it's recently been renovated, but we couldn't beat it's location and the service was spot-on. It's obvious the management know what they're doing, and we weren't surprised to find out there was an Australian GM and 2IC running the show.

My partner and I have travelled extensively throughout SE Asia and stayed in a wide variety of hotels - for a 4-star hotel, this was fantastic value and we'd stay here again.

Newly renovated to a clean and funky, modern standard, and located, not surprisingly, across the road from the train station, this hotel was a surprising delight! It's within easy walking distance to the Temple of Literature and 10 minutes from the kaleidoscopic cacophony of the Old Quarter. They have a quality, albeit on the small side, restaurant with Vietnamese/French influence and I didn't have enough time to eat everything I wanted on their menu! Room service was prompt when we had it, and the breakfasts were lovely - I always love the tropical fruit and pastries are my absolute favourite!

My partner enjoyed the gym (not my scene), and said although it was small, had brand new equipment and served it's purpose. The room we had was a Deluxe - it was lovely, spacious, and had the added character of curving with the shape of the building (have put on a photo to explain better).

They still have a few projects to go in finishing the refurbishment, but don't let that put you off. It's a shame we missed the glass courtyard being completed - it would be a beautiful spot to have a coffee in the mornings. Overall, a great hotel to base yourself to explore Hanoi.
