Great location in old quarter of Hanoi. Close to lake, water puppet theatre etc. great friendly service - allowed for late checkout. Comfortable bed - best so far on this trip - and luxury bathroom. What more could a girl want?

Good location for access to old quarter. Step out of the door to traffic chaos in the street! Near small shops, & good restaurants. Fairly comfortable room, but small and dark. Breakfast very good, food in restaurant in the evening was indifferent.

We had two rooms, not connecting (they don't have connecting rooms). Transport to pick us up from airport never showed up which was not ideal at 11pm at night. Managed to get SIM card for phone and navigate taxi to hotel. Wifi was down (we only stayed one night). One room had heavy smell of smoke. Rooms were clean and... More

Great location. Comfortable, safe, pleasant for a short time stay. Found a spider in our bathroom and curtain had mold. Also tried to use DVD player but did not work. Would stay again for the price it was worth..... Also travel agent in lobby.

Location is perfect, in the middle of Hoan Kiem district - old quarter, Hoan Kiem Lake, night market, Dong Xuan market, are in walking distance (approx. 10 minutes). Room is average but clean. Got the extra bed with same price and include breakfast. Great view from the rooftop, with 360 degree view to the city and the lake. The staff... More

In the heart of the Old Quarter but on a quiet enough street for a good night sleep, the May De Ville was a perfect location for our time in Hanoi. Just blocks from ho Hoan Kiem and the Water Puppet show and surrounded by restaurants, street food vendors, art galleries, and more. Our room was large with a good... More

Started off our Vietnam trip at this hotel right in the center of the old quarter. Perfect location to walk to everything. Small, but comfortable rooms with views. Excellent roof-top views of the city. Quite good morning buffet. Friendly staff. Guy at the door took me on his motorcycle to an area where I could get a belt. Could stand... More

Breakfast is a bit sparse, more fruit would be nice. Don't rely on wake up calls, tried twice and once they never called and the second time they... More

We could not have found a better hotel to stay at in Hanoi. The staff is very accommodating - Mr. Thanh went out of his way to ensure our stay was perfect. Another great perk about this hotel is their buffet style breakfast starting every morning at 6:30, great spread including traditional foods as well as an omelette bar. Breakfast... More

So I found the shower difficult to use..two temps; scalding hot or cold. The bath sounded as if it was going to fall beneath me. Mini bar fridge didn't work..but the air con was great. The room itself was small but comfortable bed. Watch the ledge between the bathroom and bedroom it's easy to trip over. Staff were fine... I... More
