Nice stay
Nice new property with lovely staff in a convenient location. Awesome breakfast. Only drawback was construction noise, but I’m not sure if that was controllable by the hotel.

Great location in the middle of the Old Quarter and only around the corner from the bus stop to the airport and Bus service to Sapa. The rooms were great and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Breakfast on the top floor was also nice with the views of the city.

The shower design was poor as water entered the sink area. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The location was great...2 blocks from the lake and on the edge of old town.
