“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

Located in the center of old town. Very convenient for sightseeing. Very nice boutique hotel. Delux room is especially nice for the price. Room to me is quite updated and new looking . Top restaurant has good view. I thought the breakfast was very good. The elevator is old and slow. Receptionists are friendly. We spent 2 nights there in May, 2011.

Room Tip: I will book delux room anytime.

Had a 5 night stay in an exec. suite in August. Stayed here 6 years ago but sadly the level has dropped somewhat. Room cleanliness was ok but other areas in the hotel were quite filthy. My indicator was a bin next to the lift - when we arrived it was near full, by the time we left it was chockers. Banana peels, wrappers and other smelly items. Staff would have seen this but no-one bothered to empty. Room was the same as it was 6 years ago but is now starting to get a bit tired. Breakfast was shocking -range nonexistent, cold food and I didn't bother with breakfast twice because of this. Some staff were good but others were really only filling time in. Hotel internet was the slowest I've encountered in asia..virtually unusable.
So there's the bad parts..Location IS unbeatable if wanting to stay in the old quarter and there is some great restaurants / bars nearby.
Would I stay there again?..For the money we paid.. No Plenty of other good hotels in the area and probably cheaper.

Stayed twice in August (from 9th to 11th and from 29th to 30rd) in Suite. Very large room and very good location near the lake. Efficent services (Desk tour, little spa). Poor breakfast.

This is lovely hotel with elegant and high standard rooms. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with great city view on higher floor where we felt like heaven. The staff are polite and they speak Enghlish. The journey from airport to hotel was approximate 45min if there was no jam.

The room provided basic amenities and fresh fruits daily. The hotel location is righ at the center of city and you caould take a walk left or right within 10min to reach some historical sites. eg. old quarter or the market. There are a lot of small shops and eating places. I was bought for myself a nice handmade suit. Love your country and love HoaBinh Palace.

Wow! that a fantastic stay! Hotel is very conveniently located across the street from Old Quarter as well as a five minute walk to Hoan Kiem Lake and Water Puppet Theater. Very chic looking boutique style hotel. Lovely and very helpful staff. We were amazed at the size of the rooms! they were huge. Very comfortable, lost of storage space, big bathroom. Would be for an extended stay. We were also amazed at how quiet it was right next to the crowded stress. The free wifi worked well and provided valuable entertainment. Nice touch. Will definitely go back and would highly recommend

Room Tip: Good location

We stayed at Hoabinh Palace Hote may 2011. It's summer season in Vietnam, hotm but it's perfect hotel with nice restaurant, great view to Hoan Kiem Lake, nice room with a large window. Location is good, 2 mins wlk to the lake. I love this hotel cause of friendly staffs and nice room with a lot of open air. One tip: not many 3 stars hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter has restaurant on high floor. So if you are fotos hunting, do not miss it!!

The Hoabinh Palace Hotel in Hanoi is a pretty hotel with a lot of different reviews in Tripadvisor about it and so I was quite keen to try it out. I've been in Hanoi many times for business and usually. I would be staying in the same place because of convenience. I must say though I really enjoyed my time here. The executive room I stayed was big. Hotel has a good location,.. the staff very friendly and knowlege it is near Hoan Kiem Lake and many restaurant around. Breakfast is excellent with many choice. I will stay again & again when come to Hanoi
