perfect location can walk to my places in the city from here quaint little bar at the bottom of the hotel at reasonable prices keep your eye out for the dance classes on the front green of an evening clean rooms if you have time hay long bay well worth a visit about a 3-4 hr drive from you enjoy

I'd asked for a quiet room so ours was at the back on the 6th floor. It was quiet enough (one set of windows inside another) but basic. Bed was firm which may suit some but not us. Breakfast was basic compared to the other hotels we stayed in on our trip. Some rooms do not have windows! There is only one lift but it's not a large hotel so the only time that was a problem was early in the morning when lots of people were trying to leave/go out on tours at the same time. The whole feel of the place is that it's tired - it's in bad need of a refurb.

Could not ask for a better location for a hotel in Hanoi. Bustling area surrounded by many restaurants, coffee shops, a park, and everything else you could want. Very safe area as well. The staff is exceptional and always offering ways to help. It's a perfect hotel if you want to save money but also want to be comfortable. The quality is good but not luxurious, yet i'd still recommend if you are staying in hanoi only a short time it's lovely and has a small restaurant with good quality food. The fitness room is small but functional and the rooms are not extravagantly decorated but still cute, clean and spacious.

We would not stay here again. The Hotels lift was horrid, took us 40 minutes to get from the 8th floor to the first floor with around most of the hotel checking out at the same time all trying to get into one tiny lift, in the end had to walk the suitcases down 8 flights of stairs or we would have missed our connection. They only have UNSECURE Wi-Fi so we could not use, why a Hotel this day and age does not have a secure connection is beyond me. Not the greatest location I think we would have preferred the French Quarter but like any place you visit for the first time you learn along the way. The breakfast was the worst in Vietnam, basic basic basic and running out of most things. Rooms ok, very clean but a musty smell about it, beds were hard. We did not hear any noise from the streets but inside the Hotel I think it may have been the lift until early hours making a banging noise each and every night. Reception staff were really nice though

My wife and I stayed in room 806 at the back of the hotel for 3 nights. Get a room at the back because the front is so busy and loud with traffic noise. The room was quite large, came equipped with a kettle, fridge, safe, hairdryer and tv with some English channels. The double bed was typically (for Asia) hard but we like that. The decor was dated and needed updating. The shower was handheld and was at best adequate. Breakfast on the 11th floor gave a good choice of European and Asian food. We didn’t eat there at night but we chatted to another couple who did and said ‘never again’. Breakfast omelette was good. The location was on the edge of the old quarter. So easy access to Hanoi central. The hotel bar was good value for money and the lad who served us was lovely and couldn’t do enough for us. To sum up, the hotel was ok but needs refurbishing. I wouldn’t recommend it to family or friends. Save ya money, fly into Hanoi, go to Ha Long Bay then head south. Hanoi is overrated.

Stayed 3 nights in total end of January. Hotel staff friendly and helpful,we booked a walking food tour through the hotel reception.Room faced front of hotel so some traffic noise but not a problem. Tea and coffee facilities provided and 2 bottles of water daily.A small selection provided for breakfast,omelettes were good and cooked fresh. Overall a good hotel and location.Staff all very hpful and friendly.

We stayed at the Anise for 3 nights in all in November 2017. we were upgraded on arrival to a superior room which was large, clean and very comfortable with a nice sitting area. The room overlooked the main street and was slightly noisy with a window opened but this did not bother us. The view was of the park opposite and it was enjoyable to watch the Zumba classes in the evening and Tai Chi in the morning. Breakfast was included with a reasonable choice and good freshly made omelettes. It was on the top floor with views over the city. The two evenings we ate in the restaurant it was very quiet but with good basic food and service. The hotel was well positioned to explore the old town and not too long a walk from a number of sights, though crossing the road is quite an experience. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The hotel rooms are clean, breakfast is ok and the location is fairly central with good proximity to the Ho chi minn mausoleum areas, the long bien bridge and the old town. Bear in mind that it is a budget hotel, not the ritz, but the staff are helpful and friendly and it is perfectly alright. We would stay there again.

In the middle of a very busy block, with two sets of curving stairs up one flight to the lobby, I would not have recognized that we were at a hotel, but we checked in with no problem at the end of a two-day flight to Hanoi. We later learned that an elevator goes to the ground floor, so climbing the front steps to the lobby one flight up is not necessary. The room was comfortable and quiet, because of double windows, which successfully blocked the street noise that we could hear from the bathroom. The pillows were thick and dense, which I noticed because I like thinner, softer pillows, but the bed was comfortable. Desk service was spotty, perhaps because of language problems; no one told us to use the bottled water unless we were boiling water, as for coffee, and we had trouble learning that the reason our laundry did not get taken to be washed was because we had not signed the missing charge form, but once we figured out the problem, the laundry was taken and delivered clean and folded before we checked out early on our last morning. The breakfast included many choices and very pleasant wait staff, who remembered that I drink black tea, not coffee or green tea. Definitely a good moderate-priced hotel in you are visiting Hanoi.

A good base for touring from quite central don’t expect luxury but it is clean and tidy with most things a tourist would need breakfast was adequate selection although we did have an evening meal and it was not very good , the bath was raised up quite high so would be difficult for some people to get in and out of , I can honestly say this was the hardest bed in Vietnam though all are quite firm
