Cool place to chill out, either for a beer at night or a coffee during the day. Very pretty and atmospheric across 3 or 4 floors. Service wasn't as bad as other reviews but it was quiet both times we went.

Hidden gem in Hanoi. Places like this is why I love Hanoi. It's a maze of beautifully artistic rooms. Both a cafe and an art gallery.

If you've been to the ruin bars in Budapest, you'll love this place. It's a ramshackle place with a maze of rooms with art and comfy chairs and sofas. Perfect to sit and read for a few hours. We were in our own little room...More

The coffee and service wasnt great - in fact we were told to get off the level we were sitting on because one staff member was 'working there' aka having a smoke, but i took about 100 photos of the interior. Super cool little place.

Nice place. Cool environment. Very relaxing. Clean! Strangely quiet off the noisy street. Secluded. Service a tad slow. Don't be in a rush. Why would you be, you're in Hanoi!

I live in Hanoi and I was hesitate to write the good review about this place. Because the better review is, the more people will come to this place. It will then become a noisy, crowded tourist attraction. If you have a day off and...More

Nice place with lots of little rooms on different levels and terraces. Clean and cosy. Food very average. Very slow service.

The Nola Café is like an oasis in the city. You step inside and you can climb several small stairs to several small terraces, with cozy, hidden corners to sit in. The terraces are full with green plants and there are creative decorations like colourful...More
