Located in one of the main street of the old quarter, surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants. Very clean and extremely friendly hotel-owner. Nice rooms (we have stayed in different rooms) that were more than large enough with airco for a reasonable price. Possibility to reserve Sapa-tours and Halong Bay. Owner and personal ( we presume her sons) speak a... More

The location of Discovery is very good. Just down a small alley, right in the heart of the Old Quarter. Noise can be an issue, as there's a club opposite who were pumping the music on one night until about 2am. The room itself was not bad. Had a fridge, air con and a tv. Bed was pretty comfy as...

The room was at a great price, it was basic but had everything you needed. The staff were very helpful, kind and gave us very good prices on 3 different tours. They provide a great breakfast and can do your washing. We based ourselves at this hotel for the whole two weeks we were in Hanoi. It was nice knowing... More

If you travel in budget you can come here. The staff is smily, nice and helpfull. The breakfast is simple but good. The rooms are simple but the bed is the best I had, so good for your back after a long day walking around Hanoi. The bathroom is small but enough for few days. And it's clean. The location... More

We were really excited to stay here when we were on our way to Hanoi because the reviews for this place were phenomenal. It is tucked into a little alley so it is easy to miss. The location is wicked, right in the middle of the old quarter, close to great food, close to lots of trip advisor restaurants, fresh... More

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.
