Stayed here as a couple on first trip to Hanoi. The hotel is located on the fringe of the west of the old quarter. On check in we were greeted with a smile and glass of fruit juice. We were taken to our room which was large complete with tv, aircon, safe, kettle, tea / coffee making facilities etc. the room was clean and overlooking the main road. After getting out of the lift onto our floor - the design of the hall reminded me of faulty towers and I was waiting for basil and manuel to make an appearance. Our room rate included breakfast which had a satisfactory buffet with both se Asian and western tastes catered for. The hotel is situated next door to a KFC and around the corner from a nightclub. The nightclub appeared to be open every night and the music does thump throughout the street and can be heard even when the window is shut - although the loud thumping appeared to stop at 1am each night. We found some good eateries near to the hotel and the old quarter is such that you can by anything and everything...! The hotel staff are friendly and attentive although some conversations get lost in translation. Overall the hotel is fine with an ok location - if only the nightclub would share the same fate as the hacienda.
