Check In

Cool design, the place has seperate shower area. Spacious room.

This place was very nice!

In a great location with many food, drink & shopping options all around. In the heart of Hanoi's old quarter. The coffee shop downstairs is a life saver with many delicious options & the employees were so helpful in getting us where we needed to be. The check in process was simple but secure. :)

I would definitely stay here again!

Anh was a great host. She was very communicative and always there to answer any questions we had and even arranged laundry service for us since it was the end of our trip.

The room was spacious with a sitting area. As other reviewers said, street noise can be a problem but the ear plugs provided were helpful. There is a common kitchen area if needed and the cafe staff were always helpful. It was in a great location that was within walking distance to many great restaurants and bars (Pasteur Street Brewing Co is around the corner). Also only a 5 min walk from the Noi Bai International Airport shuttle stop which makes going to/from the airport very convenient. Would definitely recommend this place to others!
