We visited this hotel during our World Challenge trip to Vietnam - 11 teenagers and three adults from Australia - and we were very pleased with our choice of the Rising Dragon as our home base. We returned to Hanoi and the Rising Dragon after visiting other places in Northern Vietnam and each time we felt like we were coming home. We found it to be quite comfortable, in a handy location, the food was great, and the staff were wonderful. They even let us store our backpacks here one day while we waited to board a late night train. Thankyou Rising Dragon.
