The Artisan Boutique Hotel in Hang Hanh St in the Old Quarter is actually owned by Australians. My most recent visit for 10 nights in March 2013, was equally as pleasant as when I stayed there a couple of years ago under different name and owner. The best part about the place is that the staff know you by name and are always helpful. The location is superb being just a minute's walk to Hoan Kiem Lake and of course the bustling Old Quarter is right there. I had a balcony room overlooking the street on the 7th floor. It wasn't at all noisy despite whatever was going on down below. The cleaning staff kept the room very clean and tidy and every day there were 2 complimentary bottles of water, tea and coffee plus toiletries. Note however, that the coffee sachets come ready mixed with milk and sugar so if you like your coffee black as I do, take some of your own. Clean towels every day. The laundry service was quick and quite good although I would suggest asking that clothes be hung in the wardrobe as distinct from being folded into a plastic bag. Of course they offer airport transfers for US15 one way which is actually very cheap considering the distance and chaotic traffic. Another good thing is the free WiFi throughout the hotel and the adjoining restaurant and bar. All rooms have flat screen TV sets and have reverse cycle air conditioners. The bathrooms are about to be updated. They currently have showers over bath tubs but the owner told me that the tubs are about to be removed and the space made into shower alcove only. This will be an improvement in my opinion. There is plenty of hot water.
I would most certainly recommend this very moderately priced hotel. Actually there is a penthouse apartment which can be rented if the owner is not in residence. It is really spacious and beautifully planned. Give it a go!
