I was uncertain traveling to Vietnam, but the staff here made me feeling right at home and helped me choose very good tours. This was my first trip to Asia and I did not know what to expect. I was surprised that the hotel was only about 15 feet wide (typical in old Hanoi). The hotel has a great location, with easy walks to Hoan Keim Lake, silk shops, and happening intersections for fresh beer on the street corner for $0.25 (US) at night. The lobby is clean and welcoming. The elevator is small and not air-conditioned, but new, clean, reliable and felt very safe. I stayed on 7th (top) floor (city view) and had to walk the last flight of stairs. Air conditioning in the room works great. Bed was wonderful as were the linens. Bathroom was clean with modern style fixtures. It was all very clean. Wonderful breakfasts in the morning. The most important aspect to the hotel was the staff. Friendly and knowledgeable. Tracy helped me pick a great tour to Ha Long Bay (stay 3 days -2 nights) and Ninh Binh. The only ding I can think to give is that they did not know where I could cash Travelers Cheques. It is not much of a ding, because I went to three banks (including an International bank (ANZ) and they did no know. By the time I got back to the hotel, the staff had found out the one bank that has the contract in Hanoi for American Express Travelers checks, but it was closed by then. (The hotel could get me cash from my credit card.) I would definitely stay here again.
