Great location in the old quarter, because of its proximity to Sword Lake it is also really easy to find again when you have been roaming around.
We had a small issue getting in to our room on check in due to a plumbing issue. The staff offered us another room for an hour, but we chose to leave our luggage and go for a walk while it was fixed. The shower did not drain properly during our stay, but it wasn't a problem if showers were <5min.
The sound from the road can be pretty loud at night; I'm a very light sleeper but I just used some earplugs and it was fine.
For the rest, the room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were really outstanding, so friendly and helpful. They gave us some great recommendations for local food places, as well as offering to pack us a takeaway breakfast from the buffet on our last day (we had a tour leaving at 7am). They also invited us to a little staff part to celebrate International Women's day - we were too jetlagged to take them up on it, but really appreciated the invite. The service we got here beat the 4-5 star hotels/resorts we stayed at for the rest of our stay in Vietnam. Would definitely stay here again!
