For sure there are more fabulous hotels in Saigon, but the Northern was modern, clean and comfortable, and in a convenient location too. Rooms are small, but well-fitted. Hospitality was gracious. Internet worked well.

This hotel is OK for upper-middle range but just that, OK. It feels a bit like they strive to be mediocre. Location is good and facilities clean and comfortable. My main gripe is that, two mornings in a row, they failed to deliver a simple wake-up call. Once is an innocent mistake, twice is a systems failure. To add insult... More

Room had everything you need - a/c, TV, kettle, fridge, well equipped bathroom etc. however, a number of niggly things - safe wouldn't open 3 times in first 5 hours of our... More

Very good location. Close to the opera house and main hotels. Close to the market for great bargains. Breakfast was adequate. Room was small. Bed was comfortable. Good shower but leaks into rest of bathroom. Small soaps but easy to get more soap. Good service if you can find an English speaking host.

Northern Hotel truly contributed to a wonderful experience in Hanoi. Staff were helpful, attentive, and empathetic offering fruit smoothies, water, and a cold wash cloth as we came in from the heat. Excellent experience all-around, thank you!

We stayed 2 nights. The hotel is located well with attractions & restaurants within walking distance. It was clean and towels changed daily. Breakfast was average although eggs are freshly cooked to order. The hotel staff were all polite & professional and the duty manager very friendly.

Nothing really to complain about. Friendly service, good sized room, good breakfast. But all seems a bit tired and dated. Our room had great close up view of a bedroom of the hotel next door, which meant curtains had to be permanently closed. Location is good though. All in all its ok but am sure there are better options in... More

"Average" is a bit unfair, but nor is it "Very good". My room was comfortable and had good, free WIFI. Breakfast was ok. Friendly, polite staff. Location good - within walking distance of river, cathedral and post office. Mind you, "walking" in Saigon is a dangerous hobby. The place is full of mopeds which come at you from every angle....

This is a three star hotel but perfectly acceptable. The staff were very friendly. The rooms were clean and there was a good selection for breakfast. It wasn't amazing but there is nothing to complain about.
