Our great experience with the Impressive Hotel began long before we even left New Zealand. After making our booking on the recommendation of a friend who travels every year to Vietnam, we had several email conversations with Michael, the owner of the Impressive, who helped us in planning our trip with some fantastic suggestions on places to stay and things to do in other parts of the country.
Our visit to Hanoi came at the end of our trip. When we arrived at the hotel, Michael was there to greet us, and during our four day stay he went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed to enjoy our time in his city. On one occasion, when we were running late for our pickup to Halong Bay, he even whipped me round the corner on the back of his scooter to get some cash.
He speaks near perfect English, so if there's anything you want to know about anything, Michael is your man.
The Impressive Hotel itself is boutique, comfortable, centrally located close to the lake, well priced, and the staff are so incredibly helpful. I confess I'm a bit dyslexic when it comes to maps sometimes, so was very grateful when the receptionist went to the trouble of escorting us the best part of a kilometer to a restaurant we couldn't find.
I can't recommend the Impressive Hotel enough. It was a welcome little haven from the heat and pandemonium of one of Vietnam's most interesting cities.
