tidy and comfortable, great location

location and staff
we came back to stay at rising dragon after a night in halong bay. they have several hotels in the area and given that my dad has had a hip operation, they moved us for this final night next door to the rising dragon legend which has a lift (the rising dragon hotel does not have a lift). this was very thoughtful of them and at no extra charge. the rising dragon legend is newer than its counterpart next door. the rooms are smaller but nicer and cleaner. breakfast is also pretty good. great coffee. the service was just as good here as next door. i'd recommend staying here if you want to be in the midst of the craziness of the old quarter!

Excellent value for money

Early check-in! WiFi
Arrived at hotel about 6am and we were taken straight to our room. Very grateful as we were sick. Room small but comfortable and reasonably clean. No window which has its benefits, that is less traffic noise. Excellent breakfast and friendly staff.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Close to many attractions. Water puppet show, Hoan Kiem Lake (Takes about two hours to walk leisurely around) and Hotel is also on the route of Old Quarter walking tour.

Great location - Excellent services

Old Quarter area, walking distance to Hoan Kiem Lake, excellent services
We came with a group (booking 03 rooms Deluxe, Superior and Standard). The hotel is located in prestige Old Quarter area with walking distance to Hoan Kiem Lake. You may visit the Old Quarter with full of restaurants and attractions without any extra transportation cost. Rooms were ok with their pricing (no more or less than expectation). What we were really impressed and appreciated was services provided by the hotel staff, especially Ms. Tracy. The hotel was flexible to provide us with early check-in after our early morning flight from HCMC and keep one room late checked-out for us to get fresh before entering to night train. Further, Tracy was very supporting when we were in Sapa and need train ticket back to Hanoi. The hotel was eager to book and pay train ticket in advance for 10 of us, even though we only book 01 room 01 night when we were back to HN (i.e. many of us stayed at their relatives).

Nice and good price

good price
Nice service from receptionist. They are selling tours with reasonable price. It is 7 rising hotels and we stayed in 61 hang be street. That is relatively old and cheap price one. the lastest one is two doors next to this one. it looks cosy and nice. I would try it if I go to Hanoi again !

Friendly staff, good location, good tours!!

tours (quality and price), leaving luggage, taking shower or sleeping after/between tours
During our 3 weeks in Vietnam we travelled from the North to South and slept in many hotels. Rising Dragon was the best of them all! The service was really great. The staff is always wanting to help you (Steven and Tracy)! We had the standard room, but the rooms are spacious (for us) and clean. The a/c is working good and the shower has hot water. The water did run out in 5 minutes, but if you waite a couple of minutes there will be hot water again. For us it was no problem at all. The location is great! The Hoan Kiem Lake is only 5 minutes in walking distance (max!). The Old and French quarter is max. 10 or 15 minutes. We enjoyed the location very much, because in the evening it is great to go to the lake (eating, sitting, watching the local people). And the last thing we really liked, were the tours of the Hotel. First we wanted to arrange the tours to Sapa and Halong Bay at the local travel agencies, but in the end we booked the tours at the hotel. The local agencies can be cheaper though, but the quality is (much) lower. We asked quite a lot of tourist how their experiences were. Besides, when we came back from Sapa or Halong Bay we could take a shower or get some sleep in a room for free (3 times) and we could leave our luggage at the hotel.
Travel tip: First go to Sapa and then go to Halong Bay to relax. It is also worth to visit Tam Coc!

Great value and excellent customer service!

Excellent customer service
an excellent hotel for the price!! great value for money (much nicer then similarly priced hotels, especially those in ho chi minh city), and a great location, situated in the hustle and bustle of the old quarter, 5 mins walk from hoan kiem lake in one direction, and 5 mins walk from local/traditional street food for the evenings in the other. rooms were clean and pleasant, with comfortable beds, hot water etc, overall a pleasant budget hotel without the feel of a 'cheap' hotel. by far the best aspect was the costumer service. very friendly and helpful staff. upon arrival i was sat down and given a welcome drink, a map of hanoi (with restaurants, temples, museums all highlighted), and a quick chat about 'what there is to do in hanoi', all whilst the porter took my bags to my room...not what you expect for $ a night! staff also offered trips at reasonable prices (i would heavily recommend the halong bay trip), making suggestions without being pushy and forcing them on you. staff always wore a smile and went out of their way to help. an excellent hotel for the price, well worth a stay!

Best hotel staff we have come across in 2 months!

The staff, the food, the location, the hospitality
first and foremost the staff at the rising dragon hotel were the best staff we have come across throughout our 2 months in south east asia. we stayed at the rising dragon on two occasions, when we arrived in hanoi, then we left and went to halong bay, then returned and went to sapa via the hotel and then stayed when we returned from our sapa trip. whilst we went to halong bay and sapa, the staff at rising dragon allowed us to leave all of our extra luggage at the hotel. they also let us have showers in between the halong bay part of our trip and the sapa part. the best part about the hotel was tracy and the other staff. tracy was amazing! she was not only friendly and genuinely wanted to help us have the best time possible, but she was very good at communicating and organizing all of our adventures to halong bay and sapa. nothing was too hard for tracy. by the end it was sad to say goodbye because she had been so wonderful to us. thanks tracy! the other staff were all very friendly and accommodating. the breakfast was delicious with multiple yummy options. the rooms were clean, good size, comfy beds, good shower/bathroom. the air conditioning was fanastic and so was the wifi connection. this hotel was great value for money will stay here again when returning to vietnam!
Travel tip: listen to the staffs suggestions of where to eat in hanoi. there are some great places. if you have the time and money, go to halong bay and stay on a junk boat for two nights (not one), and definitely go to sapa and see the beautiful h'mong women! also make sure you try bun cha the local street food. delicious!

It was a surprise!

Good service, comfortable rooms
It was a surprise for the amount we paid for, the hotel service was absolutely good. We had a welcome drink upon reaching (which was very soothing given the heat in hanoi), and the service staff was really helpful. The room was just nice and comfortable, one thing bad about it would probably be the looooooong flight of stairs to reach your room if it is situated on a high floor. They do cater to tour packages, and we realized that we paid slightly more than others after booking with this hotel. Other than that, it was a good hotel to stay in.

Good staff service and location

Location, price and good service
i stayed two nights in the rising dragon hotel, and this was my second stay since last september. my return stay was wonderful, and when i came back from ha long bay and cat ba tour, i decided to stay with rising dragon hotel again, however, i requested for a room at the new rising dragon hotel two doors away. the facilities are very good, considering the price, and the new hotel has two lifts while the older hotel has none. all in all, i am very happy with my stay, and will come back again, and i do recommend this hotel to all budget traverllers, whether single or couple.
Travel tip: Free internet service in the lobby and free wifi in the rooms.

Friendly Staff - great WiFi

Brilliant staff - really helpful and friendly. Umbrellas for when it rains.
Booked a brilliant Halong Bay luxury cruise through them, haggle with them for a better price as the same cruise can be found elsewhere for cheaper.
Restaurant Tip: Spice Indian restaurant up the road on Ma May St is nice and tasty.
