I had a wonderful experience staying at Rising Dragon Villa. Though small like many other Hanoi hotels in the old town, it has special personal touch to all the guests. The staff are very helpful, friendly, professional, and beautiful. Hotel manager Shara and staff gave me a surprise birthday celebration which was very warm and nice. This is a place you can always go when visiting Hanoi. I met someone who had stayed with it since he was an exchange student many years ago. The hotel is clean, nice, and centrally located with easy walk to all attractions.
