Ms Tran and her staff are exceptionally helpful, friendly and speak English. Free airport pickup because we booked online. Staff personally escorted us to our night train to Sapa, avoiding the 'ticket scams' we'd previously experienced. Also met us on our return at 5am and provided a room to rest/shower in before own rooms were available. Superbly located next to St Joseph's Cathedral and in close proximity to excellent restaurants, cafes, bank and other shopping. Upgraded to large honeymoon room 401 with balcony overlooking cathedral - bells were not a problem. Balcony large enough for group to gather on for drinks. Having a computer in the room was very convenient. Breakfast selection was good and included in tariff - thoroughly enjoyed the freshly brewed lemon tea with ginger and honey. Would highly recommend this hotel.
