“Good hotel in very convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for two nights in January. The location on Hang Bong street is about 5 minutes walk from the lake and convenient for sight seeing in the Old Quarter. The manager who greeted us on arrival spoke very good English and showed us where all the local sights could be found. We had booked a deluxe room which had a window. Our room looked out to a small atrium with natural light coming from a few floors above. The room was small but comfortable with a good shower and the usual in room amenities. Breakfast on the top floor was decent, with the usual mix of Asian and western foods. Wifi was good enough. Overall, good value and we would return.

My husband & I stayed at Aranya Hotel for 7 nights in November 2012. The staff were very friendly & helpful - reception, door men, kitchen staff & laundry/cleaning staff. They were always willing to answer any questions we had with a smile & helped us have an enjoyable stay in Hanoi by giving us information on the best places to visit, shop, eat as well as booking a taxi when needed.
The hotel had free wifi, was very clean, rooms were a good size,beds were extremely comfortable,2 bottles of water were supplied daily, air conditioning was so good after a hot day out shopping. We always had a good nights sleep even though we were in the middle of the Old Quarter.
The breakfast was good & included in the nightly tariff - very different to a Western type meal but we thoroughly enjoyed it!
Definitely will go back to stay again in the future..can't wait. Loved it. Thank you Aranya Hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for room with a balcony/street view - it will entice you to get out into Hanoi!

We were directed to this hotel by chance since the hotel we wanted to stay longer was fully booked. The hotel is ok. The room is big and the lOcation is in the centre. Staffs are nice and attentive.

One bad experience there was that we requested the staffs to fix our bathtub clog issue but no one fixed it when we got back to the room. Other than that i think this hotel has a potential to be a great one if they improve a bit on service.

We were staying in Aranya hotel 128 hang bong and it was very nice.
The bellman helped us a lot to transferred the luggge to our room. The room was nice, new facility and comfortable bed with soft pillow. We thought to be in 5 star hotel. Very clean room is the thing we liked the best
The staff were very helpful to consult us where to visit and entertain. We really felt home, the manager took care of all services in the right way.
It was quite cold now in Hanoi because of winter, you can not do much however. I really recommend this hotel to customer.

This is one of the new typical breed of so called "boutique" hotels in and around the old town. A typical floor layout consists of 2 rooms (one back one front) with windows and 2 (internal) without. The windowless rooms are of course the cheapest but may be preferred if one is a light sleeper as Hang Bong Street can be very noisy night and day.
They do everything well enough and the staff are all very pleasant. The breakfast on the top floor needs improving in terms of choice and refilling of empty plates.

This hotel is really nice, we had ad superior room which ist without window (good because no street noise, which is terrible in Hanoi) a 140 cm bed, AC, nice duvet, big sower, safe, free WIFI coffee making facilities, everything you need.
The service is outstanding! And the breakfast Buffett is also very good compared to other places we stayed in VN. We paid 35 use per room per night and had free of charge early check in. We arrived 5 o'clock in the morning with the night train from Sa Pa, our originally booked hotel had no room free at this time. Therefore we looked for another hotel and found this great place. We asked also if they can make a recomendation for a hotel in HCMC. The staff noted our email address and we got recommendations a few days later! This is very good service and value for money.
The safe was out of power when we arrived and the AC was not working very well, they fixed all problems in a few minutes. Good job! Thanks for staying with you!

We have just spent two nights at Aranya. We had a very pleasant experience. This is a very clean and tidy hotel. The staff are all excellent. Their English was great and they were always happy to help with anything - booking further travel arrangements through them was no hassle at all and we always felt very well looked after here.
The hotel room was nice. We didn't mind not having a window. It felt very comfortable plus the shower was nice and big.
We had massages here side by side (didn't need to book, they were only too happy to see to us immediately) and these were very nice. I would recommend the chocolate body scrub massage! The ladies talked throughout the treatment but we didn't mind at all as we were still super relaxed and happy.
We found the food quite simple but it was enough to get us by.
In terms of value for money, this hotel is excellent and I would recommend it to other travellers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window if you want one.
