Lonely Planet review
A real hideaway, this retreat is situated on the banks of the Red River. Rooms here are decorated with antiques and Japanese art and the owners speak good English. It’s way out in the Gia Lam suburb, 3km north of the Chuong Duong Bridge.
Our independent authors have visited Moon River and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Hanoi.
