“Worthy booking a holiday to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

I spent a fantastic holiday in Hanoi. La belle vie hotel was an excellent option. I was arranged a "suite" with two bedrooms, balcony with nice views, big bath and sofa. Breakfast was included and was more than enough for us. There was also a large lounge with newspapers, complimentary tea and coffee. The reception staffs seemed to be very efficient, welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be staying here again.

This is an excellent stay. Nothing to complain. Great location: in the middle of everything, shops, restaurants, beauty attractions are all around. Rooms: contemporary style and elegant with city view. Well equipped with Air conditioning, LCD Tv, Internet… The staffs: outstanding in helping to make our stay enjoyable, from direction to reservations. We will come back soon.

The hotel staff was really really helpful, the location is the best in town, the breakfast was quick and delicious too. also the room was so clean and well equipped. The receptionist arranged lots of things for us, including overnight train tickets and various taxis. One day I was feeling a little unwell. One of the female staff from the reception area heard about this from my wife. She personally brought some ginger and honey tea to our room. Would certainly recommend this stay to other travellers. The location is fantastic for walking the old quarter, and central to most attractions. a delightful hotel, small but stylish, and with a world-class customer service attitude. highly recommended.

Although the hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, the inside is another story altogether! The La Belle Vie is a nice boutique hotel, situated not too far from the Old Quarters. The rooms are nice and clean, with complimentary coffee, tea and 2 bottles of mineral water. They have nice and friendly staff who could direct my friends and I when we wanted to wander around outside the hotel. There is also a nice cosy restaurant below the hotel which serves excellent buffet breakfast early in the morning. As it is a small hotel with not many rooms there is not much rush and waiting for the lift (I think there is only one lift). The only drawback is the flight of steps at the front of the hotel, no ramp. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when I visit Hanoi next time.

This would have to be one of the top three hotels I've ever stayed at. The first thing that struck me was the receptionist who spoke perfect English, which was a relief after a confusing taxi ride in. Whenever I went out or arrived back, there was always someone ready to open to door with a smile or offer me some help with local attractions.

My stay there was separated by a couple of days and they were happy to store my luggage for me. Additionally, the evening staff did not have a problem with visitors to the room. Around the hotel are a variety of dining options from street food to KFC (if you're so inclined) and taxis are always available to take a short ride from the hotel to the Old Quarter or Ba Dinh Square and its museum. Nguyen Truong To is also a great place to practice your street-crossing skills before you graduate to major roadways (you'll need it).

The room was clean, the wifi was great and the bed was comfortable. In my opinion, you cannot go wrong with La Belle Vie.

Room Tip: Just request a highr room facing the street. The incessant honking does down eventually.

A comfortable, clean and very friendly hotel. The rooms were of an adequate size, contained all the necessary toiletries and had a basic mini bar.

The staff were courteous and helpful and when we returned on two occasions in the rain they were quickly outside with umbrellas and cautions about the slippery streets and stairs. The small attached restaurant served a basic but really tasty breakfast and the evening meal we had there was delicious.

As with the other smaller hotels we stayed at in Vietnam it lacked the amenities of bigger hotels but made up for this with service and friendliness.

Room Tip: For a few more dong superior rooms are better.

Clean & spacious room with a comfortable bed. In-room safe, tea making facilities, a mini bar & 2 small complimentary bottles of water. Toiletries supplied in the bathroom ie shampoo, shower gel, toothbrushes etc.

Efficient, friendly & helpful staff.

Exit the hotel left & descend to the small basement restaurant for a Western & Asian buffet breakfast. Not a big selection but enough to set you up for the day.

Exit the hotel left & walk down the street to a few small shops selling 1.5L water (8,000D), cans of beer & soft drinks (7,000D). Further down the street you will come across a canal, follow & this will take you to West Lake. 10-15 mins walk.

Exit hotel right to walk to the Old Quarter. Cross a couple of streets & then turn right for a 10 min walk to Dong Xuan Market. Walk another 10 mins to Hoan Kiem Lake & bars & restaurants.

We ate at a Thai restaurant & at Pho24 at the Lake. We also ate at a little Pizza place just down the street from the hotel heading to the OQ.

A Mai Linh taxi from the hotel to Hoan Kiem Lake will cost 30,000D (June 2011)

Stayed June 2011, traveled as a couple
