“Little Diamond Indeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Nothing is too much trouble at this hotel. All of the staff are extremely efficient and competent and they made my stay so easy as well as being very friendly and welcoming.
The omelettes for breakfast are delicious and the free tea, coffee and fruit all day long always helps too!
The rooms are to a good standard for the price and the location is perfect

Stayed here one night because Little Hanoi Hostel (their partner) was full. Very similar in terms of style and set-up but definitely no staff like Lily and David at Little Hanoi Hostel. They were friendly but not necessarily stand-out like the others. The room was clean, large and very comfortable. The only complaint would be that we didn't have any access to WiFi in the room.

Room Tip: Rooms are quite a hike up the stairs! Keep in mind, the higher up you are the less access to WiFi yo...

We booked a dorm room, but that proved to be full. So we got a 'double room' which we shared with two other travellers. No problem!

Very warm welcome by the great staff. Especially Zoom was very friendly, and willing to help everybody with everything. Even remembering of all the names of the guests (also after we came back after a 4-day trip!).

We booked our trips to Sapa and Halong Bay at the hostel (with pick-up service). Both were nice trips!

Rooms are nice and quiet. Breakfast is included. Free coffee, tea, juice and fruits all day long.

For a hostel in the heart of Hanoi, it was far above our expectations, and we would really recommend you to stay here. Good quality for a good price!

Where to begin? Great location, very clean and spacious rooms (both dorm and private), fresh linen and towels provided, lockers in the dorm, showers powerful, hot water, ac, great breakfast - an outstanding hostel with excellent facilities. On top of that the staff at the Little Hanoi Diamond is just lovely! Knowledgeable, helpful, super friendly and smiley! They put the staff at many high end hotels to shame going out of their way to make your stay memorable and special. They are simpley the best! Thank you again for your overwhelming kindness and care throughout my illness - I couldn't have been in better hands anywhere in the world!
If you are looking for a place to stay in Hanoi you can't do better than the Little Hanoi Diamond!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and it was perfect for us - clean, large room with bathroom, breakfast and wifi. Tea, coffee and fruit were available at reception at all times.

We received a very warm welcome from Zoom who continued to provide us with very reliable information and great service throughout our stay, as did the other staff. He also recommended a great trip to Halong bay which we enjoyed.

The hotel also provided us a taxi from the airport when we arrived and a taxi to the train station when we left.

We were delighted with our stay there and would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

Most importantly - Zoom is amazing!!!!!!! He always remembered us and details of our trip and was always so happy and an absolute pleasure!

Just returned from a brilliant trip travelling the length of Vietnam and felt the need to recommend this hotel. We stayed at a number of hotels and hostels up and down the country, but this was by far the best.

In the hustle and bustle of Hanoi you need somewhere you can go back and relax in - Little Hanoi Diamond is perfect for this. Situated in the old quarter, where there is always something going on, if you feel you need a break the hotel is perfect for dashing back to chill for an hour or so.

The staff are astonishingly good - on reception, Zoom provides perhaps the best customer service I've ever experienced. I actually only stayed in the hotel for one night, but me and my friend used it as a base to leave our big bags while we did overnight trips to Sapa and Ha Long Bay. Upon returning from each of these trips we were offered free breakfast and showering facilities; at one stage, when we were sat in the lobby feeling drained, we were allowed to go for a lie down in one of the rooms at no extra cost.

The hotel is clean, the rooms - be it a single room or an 8-bed dorm - are nicely furnished and air conditioned. In addition, the trips offered are excellent value. We booked our trip to Ha Long Bay through the hotel and it was superb. I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Located in the old quarter of Hanoi, the Little Diamond is the perfect place to discover the city. Room rates are reasonable, the english speaking staff is friendly and they offer a free airport pickup.
