I've stayed at the Golden Rice on three different trips to Hanoi. Each stay the service has been very good, the rooms have been very clean, and the overall experience at the hotel has been fantastic. The breakfast served each day has a wide variety of selections and is very good. The entire hotel staff goes above and beyond to... More

The rooms at the Golden Rice are probably the nicest and cleanest we have encounter in Vietnam (or anywhere). Rooms are large, sparkling hardwood floors, good bed and nice decor. Our first night was in an 'inside room' with a small window facing the hallway. The next day we paid an additional $10USD per night and moved to a room... More

Probably, on my 6-7 trips to Vietnam, the best hotel we've stayed in. Originally we were booked into the Palmy Hotel in the next street. However because of their double booking scheme ('the plumbing in your room isn't working today, so we've moved you to another hotel for the night'), which they seem to do very often, we were transferred...

We relocated here after having issues with original hotel. The rooms were spacious and the hotel very clean. My only concern is the quality of service in respect of room service. The staff didnt speak any english when We tried to order several cocktails only to be told they didnt know how to make bacardi and coke or a long... More

This is a good hotel but lacks some of the charm of older establishments tucked into the streets of central Hanoi. While the location is good and the staff friendly a few issues could be improved - plastic flowers replaced with real flowers and double beds not made of 2 singles.

Golden Rice is, without a doubt, the cleanest and most well-maintained hotel I have stayed in anywhere in the world, including five-star joints. Everything shines, even sparkles; the red wooden floors are polished to the point of seeing your reflection; the bathrooms like mini-palaces. As well, breakfast "pho" is very nice, as is the Continental, Asian and American styles on... More

We loved the service, the staff was very very very very very helpful and friendly with a good sense of humor. Very good location in the old quarter near many delicious street food locations. I would definitely stay here again if I returned to Hanoi!

Golden Rice is a great 3 stars hotel, with generous rooms, friendly staff and delicious breakfast. First night we stayed on a cheaper hotel and we did regret!! The location is superb if you want to wander around downtown.

The hotel is surrounded by silk shops, boutiques, market stalls, day spas and sidewalk food stalls. If you want to eat at a resturant wandering the streets is probably not a good idea you will get lost! Have an idea of some resturants to go to (search TripAdvisor/lonely planet book) and get reception to draw you a route on your... More

Hotel was selected for me by Adventure Worldwide as part of an extended visit to the region. An unexpected change of plans meant I had to book 2 extra days between the 2 I was scheduled for.The hotel accommodated this without fuss. The staff at all levels were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and well stocked with refreshments and... More
