As already noted, except its good location (for visiting the imperial palace), this hotel has nothing for itself. It is litterally abandoned by its owner. That also reflects in the behavior of the staff : indifferent at its best, it can easily flirt with insulting (eg, waitresses playing cards next to you 10 minutes before taking your order, confirming a booking for bikes although it is not done at all, etc). It is particularly shocking in Vietnam as staff is usually kind and efficient. Not here. Lastly, this hotel is dirty. Whatever you imagine in an hotel, picture it dirty before you come. Good luck to future clients. Others will be going for the opposite side of the river, where is most life and local youth.
