We were the only two people who were in the pool. We visited around 1 pm. It was an okay swimming pool but not very nice to lay down and relax. There are only typical Vietnamese small chairs around the pool. If you are looking for a quick refreshment and a dive then this is a good option.

I stayed here last week as a solo female for two nights in a two week trip around vietnam. It's a relatively good location, aware from the hustle and bustle of the old quarter but a ten minute stroll. A few moments aware from the oper house. The pool was a disappointment, not really an area to relax - two...

If you are in need of a dip. 90K/pers. Open 6:30-21. Nothing to brag about. We brought a 4 year old so it was good. However I probably wouldn t go there on my own if the merqury didn t hit 40. But then I guess its very crowded then. I wouldnt eat there.

This doesn't look like a hotel from outside and is not very well-known. Rooms are very spacious, conference facilities are great and swimming pool is good. Need improvement with food and need better wifi. Honestly not worth the price!

This was the former Ministry of Defence and it is still an imposing building. Centrally located close to the Opera, it has two options the Army hotel and the MOD guesthouse. We stayed in the latter. The rooms are quite big there is wifi but not always working. There are also two swimming pools. Breakfast could be better with more...

Arrived and as there was a break in the weather and it was sunny we headed straight for the pool. The whole time from basically the moment we sat at our lounge chairs we were hounded by hotel staff for 'room number room number!' We had a booking but hadn't checked it yet as we wanted to deflate and rest...

The door handle broke (they never came to fix it), black mold around the rim of bathtub, tight space between the desk and bed (keeps bumping my knees to the desk), horrible breakfast. I Need I say more? The campus and the location is quiet hat's is all the good things I can say about this hotel. Horrible value! If...

Stayed here for 4 nights for a conference, would not have chosen it ourselves. This is the former Ministry of Defense, an imposing building, but badly in need of modernization. For some unknown reason, we were given what appeared to be the "presidential suite": 4 enormous rooms comprising a conference room (!), bathroom with jacuzzi and separate shower, dining room,...

We stayed in this hotel for a conference, and absolutely loved it. The staff were friendly, the rooms were spacious and very clean, and it was a nice area. It was also quite an old, and interesting building. I found it to be an excellent stay, and will definitely head back there if I am in Hanoi again.
