I stayed in the Discovery Hotel over the Vietnamese holiday period, and have zero complaints. Comfortable rooms, perfect location in the Old Quarter, and the staff are incredibly lovely and helpful. My friends had to leave Vietnam, and come back in, the lovely lady at reception sorted out them getting new visas to return. It's a really great place. Highly... More

Clean rooms and dorms,and much moore quiet and low key than most of the old town party all night cheapies. The guy at ghe reception actually studied at the tourism school in Hanoi and knows what he is doing and is able to communicate with the guests, which is not so common in Vietnam. Highly recommende, worth your money !

We stayed at the Discovery hotel for 4 nights in a double room with air condition and a balcony. The price included breakfast. The room was very nice and clean. It also had a TV and wifi was available. A computer in the reception was also free to use for hotel guests. The location was very central in the old... More

The couple make shift daily and both are very helpful. I booked day trip to Ha Long Bay and night bus to Hoi An with them. Price very reasonable, I enjoyed my trip a lot, good food good driver good guide. Even though the night bus was tedious, but it seems like all is the same.

Hostel entrance is a little bit tricky to find. But excellent location. in the middle of old quarter where magic happens. Bia Hoi (home brew beers) is at doorstep of the hostel for 5000vnd. Very convenient and helpful staff. Generally Vietnamese are quite honest and friendly. 5mins walk to Hang Buon (food street) Winter X Christmas ambience was magical in... More

Location is ideal! Everything you need is within walking distance. Price is cheap compared to most hotels in the area. The area is quiet with good restaurants and bars all in the same block. Staff are helpful and friendly and happy to go the extra mile for you. Well done discovery hotel!

The hotel is cheap, the boss who is very good, nothing can help him, is more difficult to see the signs, and the hotel is more difficult to open the door. Hotel rooms are large, a double and a single bed Streets close to 36, it is convenient

The hotel is perfectly located in the old quarter of Hanoi and short walk from Hoan Kiem lake. The owners are nice. They also offer tours to Halong Bay but there is around 10$ difference from what you can find with travel agents outside. Besides the convenient location though this hotel is in very poor state at the moment and... More

We enjoyed our stay in Discovery Hotel because of its location, right in the heart of the Old Quarter, and because of the price of the room (14$ US). The room was just ok, but it's what we expected for the price we paid. Another plus, the 2 computers in the lobby, practical for someone who didn't bring a laptop... More
