Decent for location”
Right among the other backpacker options, but just hidden enough. Very helpful, friendly staff. Rooms are a bit dated but are large and clean. The small balcony we had was a nice touch!

The hotel was difficult to find and long walk from the lake and main tourist areas. It is however in a nice spot with local bars and restaurants.

A great location for Hanoi old town”
The hotel (split across 3 buildings a few meters from each other) is in an ideal location for the old town and Hoan Keim lake, so that you are only a couple of minutes walk away from plenty of restaurants, tourist sites etc. Our "Superior room" was clean, had plenty of space, desk, good internet connection and a decent bathroom. The only comment I would make is that if you find stairs difficult, check with the hotel in advance to see if a room on a lower floor is available. Although our only dealings with the staff were on arrival/departure, the staff were helpful and friendly, with reasonable English. We would be more than happy to use this hotel again on any future visit to Hanoi.

Good price, big room, bad aircon & pillow”
Location is good, Room is big
I couldn't sleep as the pillow is very uncomfortable. The aircon is very smelly. it's very near to the church, so be prepared to hear the bell rang many times at mid-night. However, the location is good and the price is relatively low.

Helpful Staff”
Good location, convenient, comfort
Except that you need to climb stair the rest of the things are basically awesome. One more issue, you might need to bring your own towel, the towel looks haggard there. :)

Good location but a bit shabby & very noisy”
Location, Staff & Value
The hotel is in a good location but incredibly noisy and the room was shabby and worn down. The Family room looked NOTHING like the photos on the website.I was promised an early morning call(5am) but when it didn't come, I went down to reception to find it was closed for the night with no one on duty. Why did they say they could give me a call when they knew they wouldn't be able to do it? Luckily we had our own alarm! Due to the excessive noise from the narrow, side street (we were on the 1st floor), I wouldn't stay here again.
