The room was just ok. But it was clean and they have genuinely nice and helpful staff. The location is good too, it's near the lake and the night market. I enjoyed the free snacks. Breakfast was good too. Would definitely stay here again.

Great people helped with organizing our trip. Nothing was a problem for them. Trips to Ha Long, SaPa or organizing buses and trains haven't been a problem and location is just great. You can enjoy Old town with local street food, shopping or relaxing close to the lake. Street is international, safe and not noisy.
