The staff is very kind and helpful!! if you have to check out, they will keep your suitcase under lock and key until you go.

I stayed here for just under a week. I had initially only booked for two nights but I ended up being accommodated to stay on for another few nights. The only negative thing I will say about the hostel is that the wifi was erratic however the staff here were so friendly and helpful, made me feel like a Prince.... More

We have just finished a week at Hanoi Old Centre Hotel for us the worst thing was leaving. Everything about this place was perfect for us. Everything from kitchen staff, housekeeping, security and reception was so friendly. The quality of service at this establishment continues to improve in all aspects of hospitality. It truly is a home away from home.... More

After reading many reviews here, I was a bit worried about the hotel. BUT, let me start by saying. You are booking cheap accommodation people.... You definitely do not get what you are paying for. You are getting more. We stayed there early September as a couple with an additional room for my 21 year old son and my mother.... More

The Hanoi Old Centre Hotel was an absolute delight to stay in. The staff is extremely kind and helpful; they were always willing to answer our questions and help arrange trips outside of Hanoi. The location is also ideal. It is right by Hoan Kiem Lake in the Old Quarter near many interesting sights and attractions. I would highly recommend... More

We stayed at the Old Centre and the Hanoi Guesthouse, which is the sister hotel. Both locations were perfect in the middle of the Old Quarter and had great service the whole time. The staff were helpful with organizing tours to Sapa and Halong Bay. Rooms were confortable and had all we needed. Beds are a little firm compared to... More

We booked this hotel for a one-night stay, and thank goodness it was only for a night. On its website, this reads as if it is a hotel, but it is more like a backpackers' standard in a great location. The lake is around a two minute walk as are the water puppets and there are a lot of shops... More

The Old Centre Hotel is in a fantastic location, just minutes from the Hoàn Kiếm Lake in the Old Quarter. The included breakfast was fantastic and the staff went out of their way to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. As for the hotel itself, rooms were comfortable and well-above my usual standard. Linen was clean and changed regularly throughout... More
