We stayed here for 2 nights as a start for our trip through vietnam, this boutique hotel is really very nice with super friendly staff. We booked upfront a quiet room and got one on the first floor, courtyard side, indeed very quiet. The room itself had a 'high' bed, but with a very good matrass, and some funky furniture. Excellent breakfast with good choice.
The hotel has a very good location close to some major attractions and the old quarter, only the pool could use a revamp to make it look a bit more attractive...
We had on our arrival a 'welcome' dinner organized for the two of us (by our tour operator) in the press club, a 'prestigious' restaurant nearby (200m), we asked to sit outside on their terrace upstairs, nice, but seen that there were only a few tables, it missed some atmosphere, food was good, wine very expensive ( as in most places in vietnam). Our second night we had dinner in an italian restaurant ' meditteraneo' near the old quarter, excellent service and excellent food.
We visted the old quarter and the night market, same stuff in most stores, but better prices then on similar night markets in HK, KL and BKK. We also did a bicycle trip near Hanoi to visit a temple and some local villages, not bad but temple not really coming close to what we saw in neighbouring countries. For a drink in Hanoi, you can go have a walk around the nearby small lake, always a place to find with a nice terrace.
Anyway, we would highly recommend this hotel if you like (smaller) boutique hotels with great service.
