In 1887 France created the colonial territory of Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos and called it French Indochina. The French ruled Vietnam until 1954 when the First Indochina War ended in Vietnam's independence.

In 1945 Ho Chi Minh began a nine year war when he declared that his country was the "Independent Democratic Republic of Vietnam". His …

Hanoi to Koh Samui Day 25

Since we've been in Hanoi we have been very lazy. We woke up early but didn't go for breakfast until just before 10. The next hour we sorted our bags as we were flying to Koh Samui and everything was a little messed up. Our trip today felt like we were having a holiday in a holiday. After checking out we went shopping to purchase a North Face coat …

Hanoi Day 21

With a 10am breakfast we started the morning without an alarm. Unlike other places breakfast was ordered from the menu. The honey and banana pancakes hit the spot. The day's activities started with booking the 3 day cruise to Halong Bay. The boat we wanted to cruise on was full but the replacement looked just as nice. All the basic rooms has gone …

Hoi An and Hanoi Day 20

A travel blog entry by rowshaw on Aug 10, 2013

The day started with a short walk from Thanh Binh I our hotel to one of its sister hotels Thanh Binh III. The weather was blistering hot and probably not the most ideal day to travel. Breakfast finished at 9.30am and when we arrived at 9.00am it was slim pickings but we both sat and enjoyed some food. The coffee wasn't the best so after we hit a …

Mental Musings

It seems I only write when I travel away from Hanoi and sometimes when I go somewhere off my norm but there is much to talk about in day to day life here.

Everyday I laugh or go wide-eyed about things I see here, or observations I take in and most of them are seen from over the handlebars of my bike. Fortunately, knock on wood, I have s...

    This is the first budget hotel in our journey where the staff went way beyond in customer service. Tracy their Sales Manager is exceptional, trustworthy, knowledgeable and a gift to this hotel! Our room was perfect and it included any amenity we could possibly need. Their location couldn't be better for walking anywhere in the old quarter. Thank you for this unexpected treasure.

    One of the best hotel I've stayed in Vietnam, from $35 per night of there de- luxe triple room, got the spacious room with LCD TV, PC with internet connection, WiFi and great breakfast with unlimited drinks. Staffs are very friendly, ask room 301 at the 3rd floor , no elevator.They can arrange everything you in need for your tours as well as arranged transportation. The location is perfect just right in the famous Hoa kiem Lake at the Old Quarter.. Near to the restaurants,bars, shopping and attractions..

    Historical Traveler Reviews Rising Dragon Hotel Hanoi

    Good location and service, but...


    Changed room from Deluxe as there were twin beds pushed together to make a double but it was uncomfortable for a cuddly couple to sleep on. Moved to another room with one bed but room was very small. Central opening in hotel from ground floor to roof also allows noise to carry and many rooms have only internal windows opening into that space. No lift and no lobby or stairwell airconditioning can make the climb to a higher floor uncomfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful though and location is great.

    Gute Lage und guter Service, aber ...


    Haben das Zimmer gewechselt, weil wir zwei zusammen geschobene Einzelbetten hatten, was ziemlich ungemütlich sein kann, wenn man kuscheln möchte. Bekamen ein anderes Zimmer, allerdings mit einem ziemlich kleinen Doppelbett. Da das Hotel innen mit einem Hof bis zur Kuppel ausgestattet ist, ist der Geräuschpegel auch sehr hoch und viele Zimmer haben nur ein Fenster, das man in den Innenhof öffnen kann. Es gib keinen Lift, keine Lobby und auch keine Klimaanlage in den Treppenaufgängen, was den Weg in die oberen Stockwerke erschwert. Die Angestellten waren aber freundlich und hilfsbereit und die Lage war auch super.

    Buen precio


    Fantástica ubicación, personal genial y agradable que siempre está encantado de poder ayudarte con todos tus planes de viaje. Habitación espaciosa, acceso gratuito a internet, muy buen a/a, buena ducha. Te recomiendo que reserves en el Hotel Rising Dragon si vienes a Hanoi.

    Great deal


    Fantastic location great and friendly staff happy to help you with all your travel plans. Rooms spacy, brand new furniture, mini fridge packed full, good breakfast, unlimited internet access, great air-con, nice shower. I recomend if you are coming to Hanoi you check out Rising Dragon Hotel

    Ein kleiner Juwel im Zentrum von Hanoi


    Unser erstes Hotel in Vietnam war das Rising Dragon in Hanoi. Es hat uns nicht enttäuscht. Bezaubernde und herzliche Angestellte, die unseren Aufenthalt in Hanoi erst so richtig gut gemacht haben. Die Zimmer sind groß, außerordentlich sauber und haben ein angenehm großes Bad. Das einzige Problem ist der Straßenlärm und deshalb können Ohrstöpsel Abhilfe schaffen. Wenn Sie sehr lärmempfindlich reagieren, sollten Sie ein Zimmer in den oberen Stockwerken nehmen. Wir kümmerten uns um einen Ausflug zur Halong Bay, den wir zu einem tollen Preis bekamen und dazu noch ein Hotel, wo wir währenddessen für eine Nacht bleiben konnten. Sehr empfehlenswert.

    A little gem in the centre of Hanoi


    Our first hotel in Vietnam was the Rising Dragon in Hanoi.

    It didn't disappoint. Lovely welcoming staff which made all the difference to our stay in Hanoi. The rooms are big, exceptionally clean with good size bathrooms. The only problem I had was the noise outside from the traffic - earplugs are the solution for that - or if you're noise sensitive ask for a room on a higher floor.

    We arranged a trip to Halong Bay for an excellent price and it was adapted to suit our needs as I booked a hotel there for a night.

    I fully recommend this hotel.

    Not For Honeymooners


    One To Avoid

    Fantastic customer service


    The rising dragon's fantastic customer service started before I had even booked into the hotel - they were very quick to respond to my emailled questions, and their replies were very helpful and friendly. We stayed at the hotel for three nights, in a deluxe room and also requested to be picked up from the airport (complementary). Our flight to Hanoi was delayed by four hours, so we arrived in Hanoi at about 1.30am, and we were so relieved that the driver was there waiting for us and took us straight to the hotel. The hotel room we had was large, with air-con, satellite tv and a large bathroom, although it was on the fifth floor, and there was no lift, which may be an issue for some people. The hotel is located in a great spot, in the old quarter a couple of minutes walk from the lake (I recommend the grilled prawns and crab at the street stall around the corner). The staff were very helpful - finding out what bus station our bus to Cao Bang left from, ordering taxis etc. Almost every staff member tried to sell us a tour, but they didn't pressure us at all, and seemed happy when we told them that we wanted to catch local buses. All in all it was a great hotel, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, or recommend it to others.

    Great mid-range hotel in Hanoi with fantastic service


    My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel in the earlier half of this month, and all I can say was that it was probably the best hotel I stayed in on our 2-week trip. They helped us out with our bookings for a Ha Long Bay tour and flights on to Hue and Saigon - we may have paid a bit on the higher side for both these things, but it balanced out in that they gave us the VIP room at the Deluxe rate (the Deluxe we'd booked was taken by someone else), and threw in a free cab ride back to the airport at the end of our stay. The tour they sold us was very nice, in a very nice, clean boat with decent to good food and guides who spoke good English. The room itself was nice, new, and clean, and the included breakfast (we both did the pho and coffee option) was very good. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends, and their high ranking is well-deserved.

    Just Perfect!


    Arrived inHanoi after a pretty tiring few days of travelling and really needed a NICE place to stay.
