The Golden Sun Legend is a great little hotel in the Old Quarter. While it's not fancy, it's clean and has everything you need. It's really close to everything and easy to get to. Hanoi is crowded and crazy—this hotel is well-situated on a relatively quiet block which is really nice after a long day.
The staff is outstanding. From the moment we checked in to the time we left (leaving our bags at the desk for the day), everyone went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed and they all seemed genuinely happy to answer questions and chat. The breakfast was great. Perfectly simple but tasty pho, lovely crepes, a nice spread of fruit and bread and the option to order eggs and stuff. I happily had the pho every day, but my husband branched out and said everything was terrific.
The only thing keeping me from giving this hotel an excellent rating is the bathroom. It was fine, but the lighting was terrible and the shower was short and kinda awkward. It's a small space and I think they did the best they could with it, but it wasn't great.
That said, I'd totally recommend this hotel—it was a great start to our trip.More
