perfect location, good price, clean/modern/well maintained. breakfast was great. a good selection of fruit and smoothies, with an extensive breakfast menu, the burger list seemed a bit random at first, but some were things like bacon and eggs, so its just a breakfast bap really! not sure about beefburgers for breakfast though some people did have that. the pancakes looked good, and they also had pho and stir-fried dishes which are what we saw many locals having for breakfast around town. its right in the centre of the old town, you couldnt get a better location and the staff will help you with any questions you have. its a small hotel and friendly, good service. more like a 4 star than 3 star really... i guess there are some people in hanoi looking to scam tourists, but the hotel and every restaurant we ate at made sure we were aware of those things and to be honest even if we hadnt, we wouldnt have had any problems. hanoi is an amazing place, where locals and tourists alike mix well. many of the locals dont tolerate scam artists either, the owners and some of their regulars really shouted at a guy who tried to charge more than agreed for cleaning someones shoes! :) its a really safe place, and we found the locals were mostly really friendly and keen to practice their english! the hotel had a mix of couples and families etc.perfect for either really.
