The hotel is in the heart of the Old Quarter on Hang Bac (also known as Silver Street), as a result it is very easy to walk around and experience the area without being too far from your Hanoi home. It was clean, comfortable and the staff were friendly. Not all rooms in hotels in Hanoi have windows which can mean that the room can be quite dark, however what they have done in this hotel is quite clever. They have a "window" overlooking the stairwell which allows daylight to stream through. You can close this "window" easily and it has curtains so as to allow privacy.
