We stayed at the Quoc Hoa for three nights in October 2011, between trips to Ha Long Bay and Sapa. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and offered a delightful view of the pulsing street life of Hanoi from the balcony. The food, served on the top floor with a panoramic view of the city, was quite good for a tourist hotel. This hotel's greatest attribute, however, is its location. Set in Hanoi's Old Quarter it is an easy walk to Hoan Kiem Lake, Hoa Loa Prison (aka, the Hanoi Hilton), and the traditional markets.
If you stay here, don't miss the opportunity to take an early morning walk to Hoan Kiem Lake, where the locals gather at dawn for health and fitness activities -- everything from walking and Tai Chi to soccer and group exercise. You might even be invited, as we were, to join a group activity. We're not sure what it was -- a blend of tai chi and laughing yoga, perhaps -- but we felt warmly welcomed, despite the language barrier. It was one of our most memorable experiences in Viet Nam.
