“Nice hotel with good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

Easy accessible and in the city centre, the breakfast buffet is ok, the athmosphere of the roof top bar is a bit sad, music should be changed! The check in process took a bit longer as there were several people arriving at the same time but it was no big deal. Overall its a nice place to stay with no surprises

There was 6 in our party and we had 3 Junior Suites with Balconies. From the moment we arrived we were impressed. The rooms were large, immaculate, elegantly decorated with European style furnishings and a very large bathroom. The roof top bar with views over the lake certainly was a bonus. Excellent location in Old Quarter and close to Hoan Kiem Lake. Also very good breakfasts. We checked out other travel agents but found Ms Tran Thi Hien at the Gondola Hotel to offer competitive prices but also went the extra mile with service and attention to detail. Hien ensured she was there to farewell us as well. Overall an excellent place to stay and most reasonably priced as well.

Room Tip: Junior Suites extra luxury for a little extra and face the front of the hotel so you get to experien...

We stayed for 2 nights at this wonderfull hotel, it's a warm and cosy place to stay! Breakfast is great and the staf is helpful and service minded. Especially Jay(front office), he is your man!! Let him arrange your tours to Sapa and Halong Bay! The location of the hotel could not be better. Enjoy your stay at the Gondola Hotel and enjoy as most as possible-quoted bij Jay :-)

The goods:
Great location, in the center of the city. Very spacious room. Very helpful staff (organized our tours before our arrival, cost us much less than tour companies we could find ourselves).

The challenges:
Noise audible from the hotel corridor (but not from the street). Despite the breakfast buffet having a large selection, food was just average. Not very good level of English (except one person, an evening receptionist).

Conclusion: We are a satisfied young couple :-)

Travelled independently and simply cannot say enough by way of thanks to Hien (Annie) for her assistance in organising and making our trip to Hanoi and Halong Bay terrific! Hotel itself is splendid and well located. We had a 7th floor suite with terrasse with view over the city to the lake. Complimentary New Years Eve drinks and buffet was very thoughtful and added to a lovely experience. Highly recommended. Wish you every success :-)

Just to echo what others have said. Ideal location near to the Lake and Old Quarter. Close to shops, restaurants and located in a quiet side street. Rooms are generally small everywhere, but that's to do with the overall width of buildings being restricted due to tax charges (apparently). How long do you spend in a room anyway? Still, the rooms are well appointed, and have a kettle with tea and coffee, plus 2 small bottles of mineral water (complimentary each day). Nice roomy bathrooms and massive shower. Staff very friendly and helpful. Internet terminals (free) in the ground floor lounge. Breakfast is very good, reasonable selection to suit most people and the fresh omelettes were nice.
