We had a family room at room 401 ( facing the street ) for the greater part of the stay.
The hotel is located at the edge of the old quarter and the walk to the Hoan Kiem lake took 15 minutes. What I liked about the hotel is the welcome drink, a nice touch after a tiring journey. The family room is adequate although something for putting the luggage would be welcome. Windows are doube glazed so no street noise disturbed our rest.Toilet is spacious with general amenities. They can do better to increase the brightness in the toilet though.
The hotel entrance can be easily missed, nestled between a food place and another shop along Nguyen Sieu Rd. Hotel service is efficient, from airport transfers, same day laundry service ( at $2/kg) and breakfast counter starts on time. Clear paper work and billing made checkin and checkout a non event. In fact, they were our time keeper ( for airport shuttle ) on the last day.
The hotel has no dine in restaurant other than for breakfast so we visit the restaurant,Com Pho Co, situated diagonally opposite for once of the cheapest beer and Nem in town , not forgetting the cheerful service. There are 2 pharmacies ( 8am till late 9 pm ) just steps off the hotel for non emergencies.
Wifi is consistently available everywhere in the hotel.
Take up the hotel's offer of airport shuttle ( $18 ) - it'w worth it. The metered fare costs around $21.
If there is one grouse, it would be that staff leaves the window along the corridor open ( probably for ventilation ) but that meant fending off mosquitoes while waiting for the lift.
