We stayed at the Gondola Hotel on three separate occasions during our visit to Hanoi. Location is great - a small street in the Old Quarter very close to Hoan Kiem Lake. Very convenient location for walking to Old Quarter tourist sites, coffee, and restaurants. We walked around the lake every morning before heading out for day's sightseeing activities -... More

Location is great Old Quarters. Just around the corner from the lake. Artisian bar in the same road, great to watch the day go by. Hotel room was spacious, but the bathroom had a stale musty smell with mould on the ceiling. The roof top bar is ordinary, we had 1 cocktail and left. It is rated 3 star but... More

We stayed in the gondola hotel for 2 night and we really enjoyed it. We were a bit wary when we saw the narrow busy street it was on at first but it turned out to be an excellent place to stay. It was right in the heart of the old quarter and very near the lake. We walked to... More

Small hotel in the center of the city. Approximately 200 m from lаке and restaurants. Staff was very friendly and competition. On the roof we can visit in panoramic bar, but it work only in the evening. I can recommend

2 minute walk to the lake & 5 minutes to the old town so a great base to explore from. The staff really looked after us when our Halong Bay tour was cancelled & arranged a trip to perfume pagoda immediately & sorted us a room for the night with our local tour agents. They were super helpful.

We have stayed here for 2 nights prior to going to Sapa and have now returned for 1 night after Halong Bay it is located just a few minutes from the lake. The staff bend over backwards to assist you. The rooms are nicely decorated and have all the facilities you require. One room in which we stayed had no... More

I travel to VN for business one or two times a year and have stayed in a variety of hotels in the old quarter of Hanoi. I really liked the Gondola and will stay there again. I arrived on Dec. 28. with a late check-in at 11:30ish in the evening - no problems with getting into the room we reserved.... More

Very clean, location is close to the night market, and a walking distance to beer corner. Breakfast is good with a variety, staff are friendly. I asked for a wake up call and they forgot to wake us up but I would still go again if I'm in Hanoi again.

Stayed here a couple of times between trips to Sapa and really loved it. The reception staff were friendly and very helpful and the rooms we were in were well equipped, I would recommend upgrading to the suite if offered as this room is much more spacious than the regular room. The breakfast buffet was very good and the only... More

Stayed 17 and 20 Jan 15 after returning from Halong bay. Booked superior room with lake view for both days. My partner arrived and checked in early due to different flight. When I reached the room, I realised it was not the one I booked on Agoda as it has no window and small. I went to check with the... More
