Pros: Close to the Old Quarter but in a quiet location. Excellent Buffet breakfast
Excellent "boutique" hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and very well organised.

Take care over tours and currency

Posted Jun 12, 2013
Pros: breafast - what it was, where it was served and by whom
Cons: booking an expensive tour and them not acting on my instructions about currency
Location: fine, some may find it a little too far from the centre but I enjoyed the walk
An extensive spread was provided at breakfast which could be enjoyed with excellent views of the city from the 11th floor. The breakfast staff were highly attentive. My standard room was pretty standard; a view re-enforced by a sneak look at the delux room next door. The hotel has a small gym which I found useful; it also has computers for use free of charge that I found invaluable. The hotel is on a busy road but being on high floor will mean that you escape the noise. It is about a 20 minute walk through the old quarter to the lake in the city centre. My word of caution would be about booking tours through the hotel - the reception staff are very good at "selling" the tours, but going directly to the office (APT Travel, 5 Hang Chieu Street) of the same tour company that they use saved me a third of the price that the hotel were going to charge. The tour company itself is very good with high quality tour buses (comfy seats and eefective air conditioning), though the guides vary a little (I went on two tours one with a good guide and the other where the guide did not say very much). The other caution is about currency, I had some money to pay when I left (for one of the tours and the taxi from the airport) and even though I said I wanted to pay in Vietnam Dong, the receptionist charged my card with American Dollars. So all in all, consider going for a delux room, do not book tours through the hotel and careful about the currency they charge you in.

Disappointed.

Posted Dec 9, 2012
Pros: Gym
Cons: Rooms
Location: Ok, but nothing around to eat. Distance to travel for food on foot.
We stayed here based on other recommedations. Staff were nice and immediately upgraded us from standard room to deluxe. We were stoked with this until we saw the difference in room, which was really no difference. The room smelt of stale cigarettes, and the bathroom not much better. The breakfast was ok, limited variety whilst we were there. We still had one more night in Hanoi and decided to move hotels as this one gave a cold dark feel.
