I am a big brand hotel user and was skeptical about staying at a small boutique hotel, but not only was I pleasantly surprised, I was blown away with the amazing service. Jane and Suzie at the front desk, Jack and Andy on the concierge/travel desk, my masseuse, Tham in the Essence spa, the many servers in the outstanding restaurant...

Hotel is located in the middle of the shopping district in the old quarters - easily accessible to different restaurants and to the night market. Shopping is also readily available. Staff are awesome and level of English is good! It was also my parent's wedding anniversary and the hotel threw a surprise for them by decorating their room and wishing...

I don't have a bad word to say about this hotel :) It was stunning, the hotel, the rooms - and right in the centre of the old town, and yet felt completely tranquil! The staff were unbelievably kind and helpful, even looking after our bags for us during our trip to HaLong Bay. One of the nicest hotel rooms...

We began our 20 day tour of Vietnam at this great boutique hotel, arriving at 2am and greeted by Tony who brought us & luggage to our 12th floor room. Our bed was so comfortable! The breakfast selections were the most varied and tasty as any hotel on our trip. Location is within the old quarter just a few steps...

We stayed a total of 3 nights at this lovely hotel which is in a great location in Hanoi. All staff were very helpful and our room was quiet even though the hotel is right in the centre of all the 'madness' of Hanoi! The breakfasts were great with a good choice of food and dinner was also excellent. We...

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid February. We had wanted a hotel in the old quarter and had picked this hotel based upon reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. Our junior suite room was very large and included a large bathroom with a tub shower. The hotel is ideally located in the old quarter making access to...

We only stayed 2 nights but wish we had stayed longer .Great small hotel in a perfect location in the old town. The staff were excellent and they knew it was our 40th wedding anniverary and made a great effort in decorating our bedroom and gave us a complimentary bottle of wine. Many thanks to everybody in the hotel

We were very happy with our hotel after we changed rooms. Initially our room was quite cramped but management was wonderful and moved us to a larger space. Food was excellent. Service terrific. Not a place if you want a resort but clearly one if you want to be in the heart of Hanoi and "feeling it". That said our...

We stayed three nights and would have returned but the hotel was booked. The staff and their willingness to help was exceptional. We stayed in one night and ate in the restaurant and it was a great meal and the interaction from the servers was lovely. We upgraded our room from superior to give us a little more room which...

“The majority of rooms won't have a view, however, that's largely due to the nature of construction in Viet Nam.”
