We booked direct to hotel website for a promotional package for 3 nites hotel & 1 nite Bhaya Classic cruise to Halong Bay.
GS boutique hotel is just like other buildings in Hanoi with rocket or tube house design, tall & narrow. To my surprise, my junior suite is spacious,clean, tastefully design and bed is comfortable. Mini fridge is stocked with free cans of beer & coke.
Location is excellent, is at old quarters with variety of local goods, silk clothes and handicrafts. 5 mins walk to Hoan Kiem lake, restaurants and Water Puppet Shows. 25 mins walking distance or by taxis of 40000 Von (S$ 3) to most highlight like Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, one pillar pagoda, temple of Literature etc. Breakfast is adequate with both Western and Chinese spread.
Only not so functional is the kettle in the room, need to use a adaptor which could be obtain from the reception.
Staff are friendly and helpful with good spoken English. GM, Mr Victor Seow responded to all my email enquiries promptly. He also goes the extra mile to upgrade our rooms both at GS & Bhaya cruise to make it a happy & memorable 32 wedding anniversary for us. A big kudos to all staff of GS, will definitely stay at yr hotel when we go to Hanoi again.
