Reviewed 26 January 2014

It was so nice to check in here after a long flight and immediately feel ourselves relax - a charming building, beautifully comfortable room, and stylish without being overwhelming or trying too hard. The breakfast buffet is stunning, especially the noodles and the array of interesting juices (go for the lime and lemongrass if it's there!). Pool too small for serious swimmers, and in view of diners, so felt a bit conspicuous. Easy walking distance of the Old Town and of good restaurants. A wonderful respite from the colourful but chaotic streetlife of Hanoi!

We stayed here for two nights.
The room was a bit small but was yet comfortable.
The hotel staff was very helpful.
Great value for money.
Location isn't the best. Not much was within walking distance and we had to take cabs to get around town.

This is a beautiful hotel with a lot of history which is in excellent condition. There is a historic wing and newer section called "opera wing". We stayed in the historic wing. The room was very comfortable, the hotel is beautifully decorated. The beds are extremely comfortable. The food was wonderful, as was the service. Drinks at the inside bar and the pool bar were well made and generous. The pool is large with plenty of seating and is right off the patio from the pool bar/food area. Breakfast featured many wonderful Asian and American type choices. English is well spoken. There are several restaurant options to choose from that are connected to the hotel. Walking down certain corridors, you will see designer shops (Chanel, Dior, etc.), as well as well-made craft and souvenir shops. The location is perfect for walking to many different scenic areas and sites.

Room Tip: Rooms facing into the pool area/courtyard are a little quieter.

Stayed here a few years ago it is a comfortable hotel in a good location. We used the Sinh Cafe buses. There are Sinh cafes everwhere, we booked a tour to the Chu Chi tunnels and to the Mekong (these buses were extremely cheap comfortable and reliable). We also used the Sinh buses to go to Halong Bay and travelled from Hue to Hoi An.

We enjoyed a very pleasant check-in process. Our names were on a board welcoming us to the hotel - we felt very special. The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite spacious and we had a view of a busy cross section of traffic. Ho Chi Minh City is well known for its traffic - organised chaos. From the hotel, we could walk to the backpackers area which was brilliant for really cheap meals and drinks. From there we could also organise tours and use money exchanges. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
