It’s a short walk from here to the Hoan Kiem Lake, one of the most scenic spots to take a walk and experience the pace of everyday life in the city. Near the shore of the lake, you can find attractions like the water puppet theater and the night market. There are bikes available for rent to make it easy to see the entire lake. City tours take you farther afield to see some of Hanoi’s fascinating temples, many of which have their roots in ancient Vietnam. This includes the nearby Ngoc Son Temple, where you can learn more about the legendary turtle that used to live in the lake.

It's not the most chic hotel, and the family room was probably the smallest we stayed in. However, for a couple of nights it worked well and is very centrally located. The staff here were incredibly helpful and attentive and this made our stay very enjoyable.
