Stayed for a couple of night on either side if Halong bay trip.
Location: perfect. Right off side street in heart of old quarter. Steps from the lake and restaurants, shopping and bars.
Room: spacious, well designed western standards for beds and linens and nice big bathroom with rain shower heads.
Restaurant; great bfast buffet included. Get there before the Halong Bay rush when everyone rushes down for bfast just before their shuttles get there to take them to Halong bay at 8:30am. Dining room is smallish and can't accommodate everyone at once.
Staff: mostly friendly. Managers are great and helpful. One guy we had to keep interacting with was borderline rude and consistently unhelpful, (phillip)and should not be at the front desk. It may be a cultural thing but he should not be in a customer service position at this type of hotel. Other front desk staff were far more helpful and welcoming.
