My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in March 2012 Apologies for the late review. We had planned to stay longer but the weather was atrocious - cold, wet and foggy and disappointingly we were unable to do the things we had planned ie trip on Halong bay and a trip up to Sapa in the mountains.

My wife and I recently spent two nights here. The room was nice not spectacular but very good for the price, Everything was clean and shower was great. The real reason I write this is because the staff is 5 star, they bent over backwards to anticipate any needs. We were impressed with the desk worker that we dealt with...

We stayed here for two weeks and had a great time. Location is perfect, just next to the Hoan Kiem Lake and the old city. Room was spaceous and clean. Staff was extremely helpful, and spoke English very well. Helped us out with tours, airport transfers etc. without trying to rip us off (which is quite unique in Vietnam). Would...

We loved this hotel and would stay here again without hesitation. The staff here is simply unbeatable. They go the extra mile to make your stay the best possible. The breakfast is amazing with wonderful pho bo as a choice among a number of standard western dishes. They will also set up unforgettable tours that are well-priced with trustworthy tour...

We recommend Hanoi Old Centre Hotel for visitors to Hanoi. Excellent location, great service, politeness of staff affected by the fact that we felt at home here. The Hotel offers, for a small additional fee, transfer from/to the airport and a big selection of local tours for a very good price. If you ever go to Hanoi, definitely choose this...

The place was our first stop on a four-week Vietnam/Cambodia Travel. The Hotel arranged a very friendly and patient pick-up service from the airport, since we had a two-hour cue at immigration... The staff is extraordinary helpful in any respect: laundry, shopping tipps, restaurant recommendations, assisting in tour arrangements, foreing exchange... Our room was spacious and clean. A little drawback...

I'm just going to cut to the chase and list out the reasons why this hotel really did it for me: 1. Dependable - Went there with nothing planned and they arranged everything for us, and helped us negotiate the waiving of extra costs with the vendors 2. Flexible - Given our change in schedule, we overbooked but were given...
