Hanoi boutique hotel number 1
We stayed here twice, before and after a trip to halong bay.
The maze of narrow streets in the old town can make it tricky to find your way back especially as the night market takes the over the strees at sunset. Grab a card from your hotel's reception, they have maps locating the hotel on the back of the card. Most locals will point you in the right direction if you're lost.
The rooms here are a little potluck. Both our bathrooms flooded into the living area but nothing a well placed bath mat or two can't fix.
If you prefer a shower over a bath make sure you advise staff at check in.
Rooms at the front of the hotel overlook the street so if you sleep lightly ask for a room at the back, and preferably on an upper level. The lower level rooms at the back offer little ventilation and no view.
Some of the rooms have a damp problem. More than an overnight stay will leave your clothes smelly. Probably not good for asthmatics either.
The safe in the room didn't seem to work but the hotel is secure enough that valuables locked within your luggage should be fine.
The staff are very friendly and helpful with currency exchange available at reception at a comparable rate to other outlets without the fuss.
Wifi worked great in rooms 604 and 804.
Breakfast was good with plenty to choose from. If you are going on a city tour have a big breakfast, it could be 3pm or later before you are back at your hotel and then venture out to find something to eat.
Sights are within walking distance and there is plenty to see. We ventured out at 6am each morning to explore, take some pics and experience the old quarter coming to life.
I'd stay here again. After all, it's just a place to store your luggage, shower, get some sleep and have some breakfast.
