Old Hotel in nice big road near Hoa Kiem Lake

location location location
This is an old hotel which need a face lift . the stair is a little bit dark and the furnitures is aging. Wall should be painted in brighter color. It is pity because considering the location in a big road just few steps from old market and Hoan Kiem Lake , this hotel is easily become a favorit hotel if they are seriously managed and make it much better looking and increase their service such as Thu Linch Palace Hotel or The Landmark of Hanoi Hotel which located not so premium as this one but have more high standard of service.this is the good thing about changing hotel when I am travelling in a city.

Nice Location just opposite the famous lake

The location is great. Walking to famous lake just in 2 mins. Walking distance to big outdoor market. The hotel was fine. Room is big but you can hear loud noise from outside. Breakfast is supergood! Try Bacon!

Good Location and very near Hoan Kiem Lake

She can suggest for the tour to Halong Bay for private tour.
-It is very good for stay in this hotel because it is very near the Hoan Kiem lake and shopping arround this place.
Nightlife Tip: - Go to shopping at night market in Hang Dao Road.It is very long way.The price is not high and can bargain.

Surprisingly Convenient

Great Location near businesses on Ly Thai To, lovely view over Hoan Kiem Lake, Quiet, Friendly
I was sceptical that there could be a view from this hotel, facing east on Ly Thai To at the corner of Lo Su street, but my room on the 8th floor had a stunning panorama looking back toward the lake, and all the city lights. Heavy curtains blocked unwanted light when I didn't care to enjoy the view. Excellent air conditioning made the room comfortable even though it was on the top floor, and the added benefit is it was right across the hall from the breakfast room. The downsides were that the elevator stops at the 6th floor, but unless you're really struggling, it's no big deal, and there was a tub in the newly renovated bathroom, but the shower is not to international standards. Kind and helpful staff, from the front desk to housekeeping. It's not a 4 star hotel, but if you're comfortable with the range of hotels in Hanoi, this is certainly no near the bottom. Wifi services worked in the room, there were also two tables suitable for working (no tea kettle however). I would certainly return again when in Hanoi for business or pleasure.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Exactly in right location for tourists or business, close to everything, but not itself in a hectic area.

Excellent location, good rooms and great service

location, cleanliness, service
it was a great stay at the hotel, we stayed there for two nights...there service is candidate for praise...you name it and they just offer it to you...it is in great location...2 mins walk to hoaen kiem lake, day & night market...if you like walking then the "temple of literature" is just 15-20mins walk...
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: it is situated at the heart of the Hoaen Kiem district's major tourist attractions...you can easily book a taxi to check out the West Lake, Ho Chi Min Moseluam and other museums...
