  • This is the only place in Hanoi I'll go to for books in English. They organize books by author, which I appreciate so much more than other book stores. Overheard the manager and his friend talking about how "we should be nicer to foreigner customers because they are not staying here for long..." Maybe I missed the context, but as a Vietnamese customer in the store I was kind of offended...
  • Best english bookstore in Hanoi. Small and quaint. Stop by for a break from the heat!
  • Great selection of fiction and non-fiction, tucked away in the block with a nice patio. Perfect place to browse for a while and pick up a coupe of reading-viewing gems, new or vintage.
  • Cool spot. Good range of local/regional history books and the obligatory Dan Brown section ;)
  • Lovely little quiet spot with plenty of books - I bought Scrabble! Yay me
