This is a beautiful hotel. Very peaceful and the staff are great! They have a great restaurant available all day and free breakfast. Not a lot of people staying at the hotel. Very easy to get to city centre, with a taxi for around less than $3 AUD. Thank You for a great stay!

This hotel is colse located to shops, lake, interresting places to visit, different cafes. Everything you can reach by foot. The Army hotel is quite big, rooms are clean and in summer time you can relax near the swimming pool. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful.

Its a nice hotel. Clean, organized, with well behaved and efficient staff. Its just a kilometre or so away from the Old Quarters. Its Lobby is not very attractive but the rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable. Nice wash-rooms. Overall a good place to stay at Hanoi.

Army Hotel is a dreary place in a dark lane away from the least interesting end of Hoan Kiem lake in Hanoi's otherwise charming city center. My room had a dark brown 1960s decor, with a carpet you don't want to touch with you naked feet, age old furniture, a heavily drapped curtain. The reakfast room was windowless, with an... More

This hotel was booked by my company so we came to this hotel without knowing what to expect, but only thing we knew was that this hotel was not that expensive. A mid-range hotel. We were in a suite room, which was indeed huge - probably even unnecessarily huge - with Vietnamese local furniture. Typical local style room. Just extend... More

Our main motivation for booking this hotel was the swimming pool. We arrived without having great expectations and the experience was fine. We booked a suite so we had lots of space and while the room’s décor are a little out date, everything was clean and functioning. It was very quiet and we had a balcony with a view of... More

The absolutely best attraction here is the pool. It is large enough to swim laps. Also, breakfast was great, with pho a mainstay. The rooms were quite sterile and cold feeling, but I found them to be clean. Fairly noisy with neighbors in the back quite loud and army traffic very close. About two block away is the Hilton, which... More

We came to the hotel just for using the pool. There were sunbeds around the quite large and deep pool. A great place to relax and swim in Hanoi. We paid 90000 vietnamise dong to get in. Remember to bring your own towel! Possible to order food by the pool.
