“budget hotel with very friendly staff, in very central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

if you travel in budget, but want to be near all the tourist place and activity in Hanoi. i believe this will be one of the best hotel to do with.
Hoan Kiem lake is just 1 block behind. a long the street , you will find everything you need as tourist. fodd, shops, souvenir, cafe, drinks, paintings, silk, even the weekend market is just a throw stone from here.
the staffs are pretty helpful, they will attend to your need instantly. they help us with taxi, printing boarding pass and even checking for cruise.
wifi is available free of charge.
what else to ask for such a budget hotel.
The room is akward, tacky but quite clean.if you just nee to sleep and do not bother so much about design. it should be ok.

Room Tip: seems calling the the hotel directly can get better room rate.

Love the location - so near the lake. I can't find any fault with this low cost hotel. Clean rooms. Adequate toiletries, cable tv, firm mattress, quiet and peaceful, strong wifi signals in rooms and up in breakfast area. Friendly staff , responsive too ( air con leaked some water one evening ).. Decent breakfast ... There are a few quiet and reasonably priced eating places just down the st in the evening... And in the mornings/day , hole-in-wall pho stalls with Viet-style seating arrangements .... It's not the ritz, but for the price, it's good value for money .

This hotel is a 3 minutes walking distance to the lake. There is so much to see and do around here. Nice restaurant outside the hotel and nice sports pubs around the corner. Some rooms do not have windows and some roooms have windows that face the staircase inside the building. Bad thing was that i spotted a maintanence staff leave a guest room door open when nobody was inside and head elsewhere. Called the reception to inform them on this security problem and they sent someone up.

Room Tip: Request for a room with a window if you're particular about it.

Good mid price Hotel. Staff are super friendly and very helpful. We came back from Sapa at 4.30am and they were waiting for us even though they dont have a 24hr front desk. The beds are very hard, but you can ask for them to put a soft cover on them and then they are perfect. Although in the old quarter it is not on a busy street and there are some good cafes in the street. The restaurant for breakfast is very small so you do have to share with others. They make great omlettes!!! Rooms are very clean. We had a view onto the street but some rooms do not have windows so just check when you book.

Location was the main attraction of this place. Although the hotel was in the centre of things our room was at the back of the hotel and was quiet. That having been said, there was building going on next door which should not have started until 9am but it did start at 7am. Hotel was clean and tidy, staff were helpful and spoke good English. Interesting wooden floors,we preferred the shower which was fine. Breakfast was sufficient and a mixture of Asian and European choices.

Excellent location within reach of all the shopping areas and Water Puppet Theatre. Free use of internet. Friendly, helpful and attentive staff. The manager, Mrs Do Thi Quy, even offered recommendations of eating places and tailoring services. Excellent breakfast with roof-top view, freshly squeezed fruit juices and excellent vegetable soups.
