If I could have designed the ideal hotel for my family (wife, two kids) to stay in- this would be it. The apt. is massive - two real bedrooms and two real bathrooms- no pull out couch needed and plenty of space even after the kids go to bed. Breakfast was very tasty with enough choices to please everyone- made to order eggs, breads, fruits and more. Pool was a nice place to take a break from the city. Wish we had the same in every destination.
The hotel is a short walk to the Old Quarter and Lake- but I won't call it an "easy" walk- any walk across the street in Hanoi is a little stressful if you're not experienced. As a alternative, we sometimes took a cab- it was just a few dollars to most central locations and cabs were always available in front of the hotel- the doorman can also help direct the cab if needed.
I considered staying in some of the well reviewed boutique hotels in the Old Quarter, but I was never really sure how much space we would have, and the prices for their "family suites" were not much less then what we ended up paying here. After walking through the Old Quarter, I felt even better about the choice. Hanoi is a pretty chaotic city, and this hotel was an oasis of calm even though its still close to everything.
