Friendly helpful staff, well-located hotel

This oddly named hotel is a good deal; not particularly schmanzy, but not too tattered. It sits on a busy, narrow side street that provides a mesmerizing glimpse of daily life. The staff are very friendly and helpful -- one of the front desk workers crossed the street with me to help translate my interaction with a tailor. They also arranged taxis and other services with a smile. The staff upgraded us to a room with a balcony on our return visit. The only complaint was one of the rooms we stayed in smelled a bit mildewy, which we realized later was coming from the a.c. unit that needed cleaning.

An experience not to remember

I used to travel to Hanoi few times in a year for business and normally I'll stay at a few different hotels to try different services at different facilities. Unfortunately, this is an experience not to remember for me. I stayed for 4 days at deluxe room, the check-in was smooth, the room was clean and very spacious; equips with safety deposit box, flat screen TV, minibars and many other other things expected from a 4 stars hotel. I can feel the room is aging as some of the furniture was dilapidated due poor maintenance, perhaps. Bad experience in the shower room due to low-pressure hot water supply and it was spring time. In room WiFi was faulty, even after few complaints it remains the same. Too bad as my work is very dependent to WiFi connection. As for the staff, I felt their hospitality were below average even if I compare them to the 2 stars hotels. Location wise, this hotel located at walking distance from a few attractions like Temple of Literature, flag tower, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum etc. For budget traveler, there are many other choices nearby and personally, this a bad alternative.
