We are in Hanoi for two nights and randomly select to stay at the Rising Dragon after booking it online at the Hanoi Airport.
Although bus service is available from the airport to a station near the hotel it is a long ride into the city. Since it is late in the evening our only reasonable option is a taxi for US$20.
Rising Dragon is located at the end of a dimly lit street which at first might make one suspect. However, entering the lobby of the hotel gives one a completely different perspective of the area.
The extremely friendly Front Desk staff is welcoming and speaks English which is great since we do not speak Vietnamese.
Shortly after checking into our room two glasses of chilled fruit juice (Welcome Drinks) along with two folded mini towels like the ones offered during First Class airline service are delivered to our room, a nice touch.
As we go out for the evening we arrange with the front desk transportation back to the airport and a day trip to Ha Long Bay. For our convenience, both of these items are simply added onto our hotel bill.
Another nice touch by the hotel staff is one of them goes along with my travel companion to a nearby nail saloon to be sure she is properly taken care of.
The Rising Dragon offers a nice complimentary breakfast that has a good selection of fresh fruits and one menu item I find interesting, a warm banana sandwich.
I would definitely stay here again and think you would not be disappointed if you chose a stay at Rising Dragon Estate Hotel.
