At the top of the list of things going for this hotel is it's location.
It is located in the heart of the Old quarter in Hanoi and within waking distance from several attractions including the Hoan Kiem Lake, the water puppet theatre, walking street and Night market and pub street.
Ms Moon at the front office of the hotel was very efficient and pleasant right from the time we booked this hotel from one of the online sites. She was prompt in answering several queries as well as booking tickets for me and my wife on Vietnam Airlines from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi.
The hotel also helped arrange a one night stay on a cruise in Ha Long bay and Ms Moon helped get a combined discount of 40$ on the listed price. We stayed 2 nights in the premium double room and when we returned from Ha Long bay we were upgraded to the Special suite on the 7th floor at no extra charge, this was a pleasant surprise espl after the 4 hour long journey returning from Ha Long bay to the hotel. The rooms and hotel has good speed Wi-fi so was able to stay connected throught.
The premium double room we stayed in was not too big, but had comfortable beds good air con, tea maker and nice view of the maze of Hanoi below. There was No Safe in the room which was a downer, but I called the reception and within 5 minutes they had brought up an electronic safe for us. The upgraded room on the 7th floor was a lot bigger and had its own balcony, right in the front side of the hotel.
Breakfast was decent with a mix of continental and oriental spread as well as a counter for Pho for breakfast. On the three days here, found the staff very courteous and espl the breakfast staff always informing us about any different items on the breakfast menu on that day.
The hotel also arranged an airport pick up and drop off for us at 18$ each way. You may get a slightly cheaper rate outside, but i decided on convenience espl in a new city for me.
There is also a nice restaurant serving Vietnamese food , Restaurant 96 on the right of this hotel if you want to sample good food in air con comfort. Walk to the Night market which is North of this hotel and abt 8 min walking to catch up with locals and tourists sitting on plastic stools on the road side sipping Bia Hanoi , eat local food and watch the world go by!
