As far as value for money goes, you cannot beat this hotel while in Hanoi. I stayed in this hotel for 4 weeks while working in Hanoi, therefore a clean, comfortable hotel room at a good price was necessary. The rooms were modest, however they had everything a traveller would require, including a safe, air-conditioning, hot water, a flat screen... More

We went on a 2d3n tour to Ha-long bay with the help of Victoria, who booked us with Paragon Legend. Tour was well organized and everything was as promised. We are vegetarian and the ship's chef made great food for us which was very important for us. Our guide (kenny) did everything in order for our stay to be as... More

Was looking to shed the loud backpacker scene- definitely in a great location but without the grim and noise of other hostels. Really helpful and friendly staff, wonderful rooms and large breakfast spread! Great buck for your bargain- definitely recommend

The staff here are so helpful! Nothing was too much trouble. We booked our Sapa trip and Ha Long bay trip through them and they let us shower and use spare rooms in between trips and also offered free breakfast when we arrived back early morning from Sapa. The double room was clean and spacious, however the dorm room was... More

The first impression about Hanoi Aurora Hotel to me was friendliness of the staff there. The room standard was good compared to $15 per night I paid. I love the hotel location; it's only 3 minutes walk to Guom Lake and some nice restaurants, very central ( I recommend '' A New Day" restaurant when you are there, reasonable price).... More

As I had stayed here on my last vist 2 year prior, I was disappointed with standard of the room, there was mould on ceiling and walls. When I booked I was promised a kettle and hairdryer which were non-existant. On the up-side, the location is excellent and the staff are freindly and helpful. Breakfast was ok.

One small thing about this hotel that is important is that the windows facing the street are made up of two completely different sets of windows. If you love the busy craziness of wonderful Asian cities like Hanoi, you will hear motorcycles roaring endlessly, and the double set of windows mean you get the view of Hanoi life and you... More

We only stayed one short night in this hotel and missed breakfast due to early flight. Nevertheless we quickly noticed this was the best hotel in Hanoi we stayed in (Asia Star and Apple being the other two). Rooms were spacious and clean, bathrooms could have been nicer, but all in all we enjoyed our stay.
