8/10 Very good

Nice stay
Nice new property with lovely staff in a convenient location. Awesome breakfast. Only drawback was construction noise, but I’m not sure if that was controllable by the hotel.

Great location in the middle of the Old Quarter and only around the corner from the bus stop to the airport and Bus service to Sapa. The rooms were great and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Breakfast on the top floor was also nice with the views of the city.

8/10 Very good

The shower design was poor as water entered the sink area. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The location was great...2 blocks from the lake and on the edge of old town.

10/10 Exceptional

Staff are very friendly and very caring for the customers. They always ask us if everything is alright to make sure we have been helped at a lobby, restaurant and in the hallways. It was very impressive and I have never experienced to receive such great service at this hotel. Welcome tea with some snack was a plus and we felt very welcomed. One thing I would like to mention is that the wall between each wall are thin? so it was very noisy because I could hear people talking all night long and it was not a little bit it was very loud and I was about to shout or make a phone call to the front desk to seek help but I did not.
