Location was awesome. Situated in the "Shoes" District. It's a few minutes walk to the Old Quarter and the Lake as well as many coffee joints nearby.
One can easily get lost in the OQ. It's part of the fun in exploring the city.
The assigned room was on the 3rd floor with a balcony and faced the street. The bathroom was newly renovated and pretty modern. Flat screen TV and the room even came with a laptop computer.
What bugged the xxxx out of me was the 7:30am "alarm clock" that couldn't be turned off! There were some sort of government broadcast messages that came on the street PA system. I don't understand Vietnamese but heard the name "ho chi minh" mentioned no less than a dozen time during the 15 to 20 minutes broadcast. Had no idea where the speakers were placed on the street but I'm sure the gov wants their citizens to wake up at a certain time.
Then again, it wasn't the hotel's fault.
I got no pressure from the hotel to join any of the tours cuz' I looked like shxt by the time i reached Hanoi after 2 weeks on the road.
Breakfast was offered but never tried. I'd much rather spent the time and $ eating pho and VN style coffee off the street.More
