Hotel is small, located on Ly Thai To street. It is very close to Hoan Kiem Lake but not as busy as Old Quarter streets nearby. From the hotel just walk 5 minutes you get to Ngoc Son Temple or Thang Long Theatre. Room is small but comfortable furnished. Free wifi and breakfast on the 9th floor is very good.... More

My wife and I stayed at Authentic Hanoi for 4 nights in early June 2014. The first two nights we stayed at the cheaper Deluxe City View room at level 7 and we were thoroughly impressed by the quality of the room. Furnishings were luxurious, bed very comfortable, air-con quiet and working, bathroom clean, did not hear any road noise... More

We stayed in a second floor room looking down on the street, over a 2 stage stay we lucked out and got the same room twice. The aircon was not very efficient and the room stunk of cigarette smoke. The breakfast room was small and crowded. The breakfast choices are geared towards an Asian clientele, certainly not Western tastes, though... More

This must be my third visit to the Authentic in the last two years and they continue to maintain good standards throughout. It’s close enough to the old quarter of Ha Noi for an evening stroll around the busy streets, yet far enough away (about 5 mins on foot) to enable you to escape from it all at night. The... More

Thank you very much for your information. We really appreciate your kind information. Because we offered Panorama Room for the guide training on your stay so we have to arrange the second restaurant for buffet breakfast.

I stayed here as part of a group in October / November 2013. The hotel looks narrow from outside but in fact is very spacious inside. We had a 2-stage stay and I had two different rooms - both were large, bright and very well finished. Cleanliness is excellent and staff couldn't be more helpful. The breakfasts were excellent and...

The Authentic Hanoi Boutique Hotel is a new and very nice small hotel in a super location in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. After being on the road for nearly 24 hours our group was welcomed very cordially by friendly staff, who made sure we received our rooms in a jiffy so we could unwind and start enjoying our trip....
