Stayed here on a recommendation from two travelers I met in Hanoi. I only stayed one night but it was excellent for the price. I have nothing negative to say about my experience. The buffet breakfast was my favorite part and the room it's self gorgeous. The front desk staff and restaurant staff!! Location perfect.

The rooms were quite huge, clean and well-equipped comparing to other hotels in the same area. We tried the spa service, it was awesome. My boyfriend loved it so much that we came back and stayed a few months later.

This is a great boutique hotel with a fantastic location in the old quarter. Our room was spacious, meticulously clean, and well furnished. One caution is that there are no views from the rooms. It is best just to keep the shears drawn and enjoy the room. The staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to meet...

We stayed at this hotel in 2014 and loved it. So we booked it again for 2017. It is very cozy. The rooms are decent size, and everything is very clean. There is no room noise in rooms 605 and 607 despite this hotel's proximity to the action. Great location for walking the Old Quarter and enjoying beer corner. The...

They were all just beautiful people to deal with, would go there again in a heartbeat. And such a pretty hotel. Rooms were a little bit pokey...

Location is fantastic, right outside Bia Corner and at night all the food stalls come out on the footpaths. Stayed for 5 nights in Hanoi and we ate at the stalls every night. There are so many options The room we had was just beautiful. It was actually 2 rooms (we had a sitting room with TV and lounge etc)....
