Locates just next to the lake in the old quarter. Room is relative small, bed sheet is quite stingy but clean and quite comfortable. Good breakfast. The staff are a bit unfriendly, no greeting, not smile at all.
It is one of these average and tiny hotels to spend one or two nights there just to sleep and shower. Except the good location there is nothing good nor bad to mention about this hotel.
The receptionist is very curious.
Lake View is an absolutely terrible hotel
- Dirty sheets and towels
- Boiling water (funny enough, cold water they don't have, instead, it was all boiling water, so prepare a bucket and let the water sit if you wish to bathe)
- Unfriendly staff; if you like attitude, good place
I booked the hotel via booking.com, and even as i arrived very early in the morning, they immediately got a room for me. The room was clean and equipped with a very large flat screen tv. The breakfast was very nice and pretty tasty and they really help you to get around in Hanoi.…
The room was not cleaned sufficiently. I found insects. Hot water was so sparse, you had to take a cold shower. Wifi not working. Amenities are not provided to you consistently. There were days that I did not get the complimentary bottles of water. Breakfast options very limited.…
"Areas near Hoan Kiem are unfortunately tourist traps. Best to try and go a little further out of Hoan Kiem area to find great deals, then just walk a bit"
"choose rooms 504, 604 or 704"
"Room overlooking lake is nicier and not so musty, very big room, negotiate the price down."
"Give this one a miss."
"Some rooms are odd shapes etc. Ours had no view but was at the back, so it was quieter. If you're fussy, ask to see the room first."
