We stayed here twice, nov 2012. The service regarding our stay was great, friendly helpful staff at the hotel and the café. We had booked a trip to Halong Bay through the hotel before we left Australia and when we arrived it appeared it had not been booked, so we got the hotel to organize a different tour for us. We had originally asked for and booked a 4 cabin junk boat cruise and ended up on a 14 cabin junk boat cruise which we didn't know about until we got there. Our cruise was enjoyable although we did want some peace and quiet which is why we asked for the smaller boat we did enjoy ourselves.
I would recommend this hotel as the service was great I would just not recommend booking other things through them.

... It's location was not good. We had problems finding it all the time. Other hotels like The Silk Path were easy to locate, but our place had so many tiny streets around it, if we went wrong well you were going around in circles !!
We had an excellent guide, who preferred to talk to us outside the car when nobody was about, so we got a very clear lesson on his views of the country. A young guy early thirties, has travelled a bit in china and Russia, was a ...
... in the river with his bike. The drop from the bridge is about a 7ft, and luckily he wasn't hurt, which meant everyone could laugh without feeling bad, this also included all the local villagers who came out into the street to also laugh at poor Calum and his poo driving skills. After Phong Ya the group split, and me, Nigel & kick it kev (Calum) got told by a fellow traveler about this amazing road and route to take to get to our next destination. Although, he warned us ...
We woke up and went for breakfast - cold toast with eggs and / or jam - and decided that breakfast was definitely the weak link in the catering on the boat.
After that it was time to pack and check out of our room on board before taking in the sights of Halong bay as we returnmed to dock. The number of boats was far greater than in Lan Ha the previous day, and our guide was keen for us all ...
... the 1 hour taxi into the city and old quarter. Daylight robbery but 16 hours after waking and a 6 hour time difference we obliged.
8:10 we arrived at the Kangaroo Hostel in the Old Quarter, which didn't have our room ready so the lovely Mu upgraded us to their sister hostel, the Kangaroo Hostel 2 for no extra charge.
The 10 minute hike along a few streets was hot, noisy and crowded.
... Hanoi about 2 hours later. The weather is so different here 15 degrees and rainy, we are use to 30+ degrees. We caught a public bus for 7000 Dong each (20p) which took about 1 and a half hours to the city centre. It was pretty shocking on the outskirts like driving through a thrid world country, litter everywhere, derelict buildings and mud everywhere! When we arrived we caught ...
