This is an older hotel with high ceilings and good size rooms. It was clean and tidy but when we were there is was very hot (40C) and the airconditioners were struggling to keep it cool. The fittings had been updated although some of the finishing was poor. Bed were typical hard, but this seems to be standard in vietnam. The pool was great. Its small and inside, It was about 30 C which was a lovely place to cool off. I think it is the only hotel in the old quarter that has a pool.
Even though the city is very noisy we had rooms that had windows into stair wells and thus it was quiet at night. Obviously there were no views but the stairwells had natural light so you didnt feel enclosed.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was ordered off a menu, which was had a good assortment but it was not up to the standard of the buffets we had encountered at other hotels. Croissants were bread rather than pastry. But it was an ok breakfast.
The rooms had a computer with an internet connection which was very good.
We were later moved to Paradise 2 because that were overbooked. I would not agree to this again. The rooms At Paradise 2 are new, but a lot smaller and there is no pool. They say its only 5 minutes away, but in the heat the benefit of the swim would be gone by the time you walked to the other hotel.
