A very narrow hotel on the edge of the city centre, most of the traditional attractions are walking distance. We were allocated a room on the 7th floor with an amazing picture window overlooking the Sheraton and Caravell Hotels. There was damage to the window opener, which was rectified whilst we went for an evening meal. The fun began when we tried to have a bath. The plug was a push-push type but would not close. Reception was contacted (staff English was a bit limited, compared to other hotels on our trip) and we were offered an alternative....which provided 2" of hot water! A further alternative got us a shower, thankfully.
Having repaired our bath for the next day, we again found the bath not plumbed to the drainage system (see Imperial Hotel, Hanoi review).
Breakfasts were not really up to par, and featured some rather quirky combinations.
Staff were generally helpful, but language skills could be improved, and overall, the hotel felt a bit tired.
