Hanoi Old Centre Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We stayed at Hanoi Old Centre Hotel last week for 3 nights. The location is very close to the lake and in the middle of the Old City Center so we can around the lake every day. The rooms were comfortable, very clean, no unpleasant smell, good WiFi. Adequate breakfast, complimentary drink & fruits that we can take all day.

The hotel staff such as Morning Thuy, Afternoon Thuy, Hoan and the other staff were so friendly, kindness, helpful and always smile. If we have some questions, they will give us good advice. The hotel staff were so responsible such as we booked train tickets leaving Hanoi to Sapa through this hotel, they sent a staff member on a motorbike to follow our taxi to the train station and ensure that we arrived at the right place and knew which platform to go to. And after we came back from Sapa to Hanoi at the early morning, they also sent a staff member to pick up us.

I wish I still can come back to Hanoi and absolutely will stay again at this hotel. If you want to enjoy your holiday in Hanoi, you should choose this hotel. Thank you.

Was there with friends in a 4-person room on the top floor. Room was good with TV and working wifi.
Staff were friendly
Hotel was located near to the lake, and there were many places to eat and shop near the hotel.

We stayed at the old centre hotel last week for two nights. We were absolutely blown away by how helpful and friendly the staff were with dealing with our many questions - even when we came back from Halong bay to wait for our night train (and technically weren't staying there anymore) we were welcomed in with fruit juice and were able to use the shower. As well as the staff, the location is also brilliant - near enough to the action but also quite calm... Thanks so much! Highly, highly recommended!

We did stay 3 nights at Hanoi Old Center Hotel. First, the location is the best ever because very close to the lake and in the middle of the Old city Center, but in a small street which makes it very calm, even with a room on the street side. I do recommand to ask for a room with a balcony because you can enjoy the life in the street from your room.
Second, the hotel staff is super kind and helpful. They will give you good advice on where to eat, what time to go where...etc. always smilling.
Last but not least, the bed quality is awesome, I slept super!!!
Thank you!! And I wish to come back!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony

We stayed at Hanoi Old Centre Hotel 4 nights + one extra on a returntrip from Halong Bay. This is a really good hotel, highly recommended.The staff is so helpful in every possible way, especially Morning Thuy and Afternoon Thuy :) Lot's of options for adventures with wellplanned tours were offered. The location was also very good, close to the centre and all, but still nice and quiet at night. Thank you.

Where to start... Hanoi Old Centre Hotel seriously go above and beyond for their customers and offer exceptional customer service - especially Thuy am and Thuy pm! :) My boyfriend and I showed up to the hotel without any activities booked and Thuy am and pm were genuinely happy to help us with our adventures. They provided us with great recommendations during our entire stay! The service was the best we received during our stay in Vietnam! We highly recommend this hotel.

Thanks for everything!
