Walked into this place off the street fresh from an airport taxi. No problems getting a room and no issues with showing us a couple of rooms first. Ours was fifth floor at the front of the building. Had a small balcony looking out onto Hang Bac St which was fantastic although the sacrifice was a little more traffic noise. The room itself was bigger than average, clean and comfortable bed, the bathroom was sufficient with shower over bath. Airconditioning was also great although you have to make sure the boys at the front desk turn the power on to the A/C before you try and turn it on. Most of the time they were pretty good, only needed to call downstairs a couple of times to remind them we had returned to our room. The service was actually a lot better than we expected after reading some of the reviews they even arranged our train trip to Sapa for us for a small fee of $2US. Breakfast was included and was plentiful. The location of this place is fantasic, it's a perfect place to explore Hanoi's old quarter. The price was a little more than what we'd expected and I'm sure if we'd bothered to hunt around a little more we would have found a better bargain but I'd still recommend it.
