La Dolce Vita Hotel
Ranked #133 of 603 Hotels in Hanoi
Reviewed May 25, 2010

I stayed here for several days, and enjoyed it. It's not a fancy hotel, but the rooms are nice and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and responsive. I was happy with the in room wi-fi, but the elevator definitely makes too much noise, so I had to ask them to move me to a room further away. The street is a busy one, but I didn't find it that noisy, and it was nicely located in the old quarter. It doesn't appear well known, so taxis often had a hard time finding it.

If you want a friendly, reliable, clean room in the heart of the old quarter, this is a good bet. Don't expect anything too fancy, but definitely a nice, comfortable hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at the end of April 2010. Our room 306 was out the back and was both confortable and very quiet. Lots of vanity space in the bathroom and there was one free internet station. Breakfast was adequate but nothing flash. The location was ideal - being within easy walking distance to the shops, night market and Lake area. The Supermarket a couple of doors down was very handy. We had a great tasty meal across the road at Ngoc Diep. We would stay here again.

We were booked for 3 nights early in April 2010 but arranged to leave after just one night soon after we checked in. The staff at check-in were aloof and unsmiling except for the doorman who was friendly, helpful and polite. In spite of arriving at the hotel at 4.30pm with check in available from 2pm, we were told to wait for our room as it wasnt ready. We eventually entered the room to find the carpet was stained, the bathroom door didnt shut, the safe didnt work, and the wireless internet in the room promised when the VIP room was booked didnt exist. Not to mention the obviously old and wrinkly 'fresh fruit' in the room which when brought to the attention of the male person who had checked me in 30 minutes prior seemed offended that I had brought it to his attention. If were were paying a standard amount of money to stay in this establishment this wouldnt have been an issue, but we were charged $US130/night for a VIP room which is quite rich for this area of Hanoi. I must also say that the VIP room does not resemble the photos shown on the internet.
There was also a work crew of people digging up the footpath in Hang Bo Street right outside the hotel with a jack hammer and there was mud everywhere which was due to continue for another few days. During the 1st evening, the police were outside in the street with loudspeakers at 1.30am trying to breakup a group of people at a property opposite, and when that quietened down, the road crew arrived at 3.00am to do more work on the footpath outside the hotel. Breakfast was basic and uncomfortable as we were the only people there, and the female staff member insisted on staying within a metre of our every move and while we were sitting at the table. We checked out shortly after that. While I understand that the footpath works were not the fault of the hotel, I wasnt prepared to stay for another 2 nights in those conditions when there were many other better options available.

La Dolce Vita Hotel was perfectly located in the heart of Old Quarter. The hotel was full when I booked but they upgraded me to the deluxe room which is very spacious. Only setback is the room is located just beside the main street so for those who are senstitive towards noise, you better opt for the normal room behind the street which is less noisy. However, the deluxe room has a balcony which allow you to admire the life and street of Vietnamese. This hotel is relatively new so the room is good for the rate we paid (US$60 per night nett with breakfast). It's only 2 street away from the night market that are open only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Dong Xuan market is also within walking distance but if you're going during summer, this may be a place to avoid due to the crowd and some of the shops there are only interested to sell in bulk. Located 3 doors away from the hotel on the right is a mini supermarket which allow you to pick up bottled water, tip-bits etc easily. There's a very nice restaurant that I would recommended which is 1 street behind the hotel, Green Mango, 18 Hang Quat Street, Hanoi, www.greenmango.vn. They served delicious food and for 5 items we ordered for serving of 2, we paid only US$40. Pls try this restaurant if you're staying at this hotel since it's nearby. If you're looking for a tailor for made to measure, you may try Hoa Silk located at 72, Hang Gai Street (Tel : [--]). They charged me US$25 for a cheongsum dress with thai silk and US$15 for a cheongsum top. Pls get your design ready as they will just follow instruction and to ensure they are clear what you want. Also, you need to give them at least 3 days for fitting purpose etc so would suggest you go there on your first day and pick up before you leave. There's another very good Vietnamese restaurant which you must try, Quan An Ngon at 18 Phan Boi Chau, Quan Hoan Kiem, Hanoi which served delicious Vietnamese food and inexpensive. This restaurant is famous even with the Vietnamese and served a great variety of Vietnamese food if you want to try.

We stayed in this Hotel in the old quarter of Hanoi. Located in Busy (beep,bep,beep) Hang Bo. We had one of the 4 VIP rooms on the 7th floor. Great bathroom, though the lighting wasn't great. We had 2 Plasma screens, one on the wall in the bedroom area and one 10 feet away in the sitting room area, with no door between them? Staff are very helpful though it can take a while if you order a cocktail that has to be mixed. The location is ideal and we would come back to Hanoi in a heartbeat. The restaurants are great, there is one called the Green Mango 2 mins away which we compared favourably to Cafe Warisan in Bali (that may help if you have been there) at a third of the price.

Hotel has wifi and ethernet in rooms if you take your own laptop, we didn't but if you need to do anything serious online you should, the free 2 pc's are really just about able to do e-mail..

This Hotel is pretty much as their website says, I wouldn't hestitate to recommend it!
and overall Vietnam is a brilliant and great value for money destination.
