This boutique style hotel sits in the middle of the old quarter in Hanoi. Outside the streets are busy with everyday life but inside it's calm and comfortable. The hotel's position has to be its biggest selling point - a short walk to lots of restaurants, shops, theatre, the lake and other sightseeing attractions.
The rooms I had (805 & 806) were on the top floor at the back. They were quiet, clean and comfortable (including the bed). Both had the shower in the bath setup with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. There were plenty of power points to use, air-conditioning was good and there were large windows looking out over the rooftops.
The staff in the hotel were efficient, warm and friendly making sure your needs were met. The car I arranged for pickup was waiting for me on my arrival with no issue and tickets for the local theatre arranged easily. The main points about the hotel however that make it standout were the lovely restaurant onsite, food and service great and the handy ATM at the door.
All in all a great experience for a reasonable price.
