Fantastic budget hotel right in the centre of the old quarter but down a quiet street so no traffic noise! The room was great with excellent facilities and more than worth the money we paid. Breakfast was good too, you get a choice from a wide selection. The staff at the hotel go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. Definitely recommended, would stay here again in a flash.

At first, the hotel place is located in very good, quite and clean place. There is no cars or bikes running near the hotel .
The rooms are big and quite romantic.
Martin, the main guy who working in hotel was very nice person.

We stayed at 3 different hotels in Hanoi and this was hands down our favorite. The location is perfect way less busy than the other 2 we stayed at. We didn't have to worry about getting run over as we left the hotel. Our room was huge, included a very modern glass bathroom and computer area in the room. We also had our own seating/entertainment area. Breakfast was amazing and the dishes were gigantic. You can order as much as you like but we were usually to full to eat more than one. The omelets were great so we're the noodles with chicken and pancakes-it was all great. Best part about this hotel is the staff. We stayed for five nights it is very close to many good places to eat and get a beer. Martin and the staff where excellent! They were always there to help and super friendly, they are also really funny know how to joke around and have fun while doing their job which was a really nice change, at the end of our stay the staff felt like friends.

Room Tip: Rooms are very quiet because it's located on a small side street.

We arrived from Sapa at 5.00 am and had a bad experience with a taxi driver at this time in the morning. Decided to go to hotel and sit on steps until they opened. A knock on the door from a passerby was all it took for Martin to open the doors and greet us warmly at this time in the morning. He arranged for us to have a shower and rest in a spare room. Looked after us with breakfast and then an early check-in to our room that was absolutely spotless. Beautiful soft bed, soft pillows and hot water. I must say at this point we were a little jaded from the constant hassle with rogue taxi drivers and scammers throughout Vietnam. Martin restored our faith in human nature and the absolute kindness of people without wanting anything in return. I would say that Martin would be this hotels best asset.

It was the first time we visited Hanoi and Thanks so much to Splendid Star Grand Hotel for helping us to arrange our 6 days Hanoi trip so well !! Thanks to Martin - the great joker ^^ and friendly staff who taking care well of our needs at all times: offering us free room after we came back from Halong Bay cruise and Sapa trip, and thanks to him too for willing to come to pick us up at the train station even in the very early morning - 5am! Besides, under this hotel's arrangement, we met our very helpful tour guide Tim during our Sapa trip who did his job very well and took care of my sicked Father. We really had great and fun time during our stays at Hanoi. Unforgettable and Enjoyable holidays! Good Impression! Definitely we will prefer this Hotel again for our next visit!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Splendid Star Grand Hotel for 3 nights in February 2013. We were greeted with drinks and fruit in the foyer by friendly staff (Tuan and Martin) and given a map of the city. They also helped us catch taxi's, recommended restaurants and places to go, and organised tours and transfers for good prices. The rooms were beautiful, neat and clean, with TV's and computers in each one (free wifi too). We were allowed late check out and early check in (6am when we arrived from the overnight train) at no extra cost. They stored our main luggage for us at the hotel when we went on an overnight Halong Bay cruise. They also upgraded our room for free because one was available. Breakfast was delicious and the hotel is in a great place, near restuarants and easy walking distance to the Lake. We would definitely stay here again! Enjoy your stay:)

Room Tip: We stayed in the Deluxe room, Splendid View Room (honeymoon) and Family Suite. All were great, howev...
