Overall we stayed 5 nights at the Silk Path. It is centrally located in the Old Quarter, a short walk to the lake, market, water puppets etc. Rooms are well appointed, clean and quiet. The staff are very attentive and we found the service excellent. They stored our bags at no charge for our trips to Halong Bay and Sapa and offered us showers in the sauna/gym on our return while we were awaiting our room. Silk Path's breakfast and meals are also excellent. Highly recommend.
