A cut above in quality and service. I arrived here after riding a motorbike from Vinh covered in mud and freezing and was taken in hand. They have good hot water and real baths friendly service and don't badger you for tours or extras. The concierge even organised to wash my motorbike for a very reasonable 25k. A safe, hairdryer,...

Lots of advice on where's good to go in Hanoi was available. We also booked a Ha Long bay tour through the hotel for a reasonable price.... More

We (couple, 31 yrs old) stayed at the Hanoi Gecko 2 hotel for a total of 5 nights during our stay in Vietnam. The hotel is located smack bang in the middle of the old quarter. Five minutes walk to the lake, plenty of places around for food and drinks. The rooms we had (701, 703, 401, 403) were all... More

I have been meaning to write this review for some time because of how unhappy I was with with this place.
