10/10 Exceptional

I absolutely loved my stay here as the solo traveller. I was taken back by how friendly and sincere the staff all were, they were always so helpful and kind. My room was reasonably sized and the shower nice and hot. Snacks were replensined in my room daily but i didn't know that they charge for these - something to know ! They also have a small gym downstairs that is 24hrs which is brilliant, the location is also fantastic. Right next to all the delicous street food you need and plenty of shops for your knock off winter gear haha. I walked around the area after 12am as a solo woman and felt safe in the area. There was a problem with my AC and management handled it so well which is when their good guest service really showed ! :) I book the halong bay tour with the hotel and they managed to get me a free upgrade to the most incredible and spacious room. I'm honestly so greatful to the staff here, solo travel can be difficult sometimes especially in a country where you only know speak a few words of the language but i felt looked after and reasurred by the staff here. I would recommend to a friend and will stay again on my next trip to Hanoi.

4/10 Fair

The staff are by far the most decent and kind people in Hanoi. My issue was unstable wifi. The internet system is very weak and gets disconnected. Took 4days to be offered for a hot spot and later said improvement were made but suffered same disconnect issue for another 3days and then check out. If internet connection is important for you like doing business trip, seek elsewhere. I am saddened to write a harsh review for such hard working staff but internet connection should be marked as a warning. Or be offered a refund.

2/10 Poor

This property's location is central, which is a great benefit but 1) the Wifi does not work - multiple guests were always asking how they could connect and none of the issues were resolved, 2) the hotel service at night is minimal and very curt and 3) the breakfast is stale and left for days. I would not stay here again.

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.
