conveniently located in the heart of old quarter w great choices for local viet food around the corner. this 3 star hotel surprises me with their effort and service and attitude. they took note of our anniversary and cleverly decorated our suite with balloons and cakes. The room is tastefully furnished in teak, cleanliness was top effort and we love the fresh flowers and local fruits that are changed everyday. The suite is also notably bigger than the list of other hotel suites that we were looking through which definitely makes a diff once you are in the old quarter. we stayed at level 6, comes with a bath tub and balcony. noise level didnt bother us even though we were light sleepers as it typically dips around 11+pm and this is part of the flavour living in the old quarter anyway. Wifi was of standard and they have a good selection of travel books and local map for travelers without a plan in mind. receiption staff are responsive and gives good rec for street food with authentic viet flavour instead of safe café/restaurant choices. cafe food was delicious and their staff are always cheerful and willing to help. They have a tie-up with SF spa which provides free 1 way transport to pick u up. Prices were higher than what you would have seen in the street but it’s a decent spa worth paying the extra for (not pushy for tips tts a pt I always look out for, book early for good therapist as they couldn’t provide us w any on one night which we booked on the same day near dinner time, foot massage was not up to our standard, their body massages are better). We booked the halongbay cruise trip with them out of convenience. The only disappointment was the concierge did try to quote us a higher price for the trip without knowing that we have already conversed with the sales manager who has given us a rate. Might be miscommunication on their part or worst case small dishonesty, nonetheless we were lucky to have great travel company which made the trip a lot more entertaining and cosy. couldnt think of how they could do better given that we paid <90usd a night for a suite like this. We will visit again. Stayed dec 2013 as a couple.
