May de Ville Old Quarter Hotel
Ranked #117 of 599 Hotels in Hanoi
Reviewed May 14, 2011

We stayed in the May de Ville Old Quarter Hotel in April 2011 for 4 nights, taking one night out to visit Ha Long Bay. The Hotel was an ideal base for exploring Hanoi as it is right in the middle of the Old Quarter amongst the busy and bustling streets. Despite the noisy bikes outside, the hotel was very quiet. Rooms were clean and comfortable and we received a complimentary upgrade to a honeymoon suite with a balcony, which was a bonus! The hotel provides complimentary laptop and wifi in every room as well as in the lobby, which many hotels, particularly at this price, do not. The staff at the hotel really couldn't do enough to help us. They were so friendly and accommodating and spoke excellent English. We would definitely recommend the hotel because of it's location and fantastic staff.

Room Tip: Book a honeymoon suite. The room is huge!

To those of you wishing to maximise your Hanoi experience, stay at the May de Ville Hotel. The location is fantastic: close to all the "Old Quarter" excitement and action as well as amazing shopping and food. The BEST thing about the May de Ville is the staff though. Nothing was too difficult, nothing they would not do to make our stay more enjoyable. The "boss" Dao was brilliant. His friendliness and passion for service is unsurpassed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to any traveller. Thank you Mat de Ville :) :) :)

I stayed at the May De Ville Old Quarter for two nights recently and could have only been slightly happier. The manager (Dao) was wonderful and even memorized our names from our passports.
My only complaint would be the beds. Most hotels in Vietnam are sub-par when it comes to comfiness and I would only rate the beds as on par.
Overall I got more than expected from the May De Ville and will surely stay again soon.

We decided to book May De Ville Old Quarter for our honeymoon trip to Vietnam after hovering several hotels and it deserve every coins we paid for 4 nights in Hanoi! As mentioned in other reviews on TA, the hotel’s staffs are still young, very friendly & professional as well. The most important thing IS their customer’s satisfaction-orient, IMO. Sometimes I felt that they were always available there to make our vacation in Hanoi unforgettable. It is needless to say that the hotel location is fantastic, located in the Old Quarter but very quite, peaceful.

Tips: You should try to get up early morning and go to Sword lake at around 6 – 7AM, there are a lot of amazing things and interesting people waiting for you over there!

We had a triple room at the May De Ville in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. Although it is squashed into a narrow space the staff were very helpful and friendly. They like each other and their jobs and it really reflects on the atmosphere. The location is a block away from the lake and at the end of the street is a market. If you turn right from the entrance you are surrounded by restaurants of all sorts. At night you can walk to the Water Puppets, the lake or balcony bars over looking the chaotic traffic.
The rooms were very clean with a flat screen TV with all the latest channels. I would reccommend anyone to stay there if they want to be in the heart of it with a great feel

Room Tip: Ask for the front half of the hotel.

This hotel is within close walking distance to the Lake, Puppet Theatre, great restaurants and galleries - very convenient. Our room was very clean and well appointed, generous in size with balcony and a great outlook over the Old Quarter.
Free WiFi with laptop provided in our room was a bonus! The staff were very welcoming, helpful and accommodating when we required assistance. In fact they went the extra mile to ensure we had towels and access to a bathroom to freshen up on our return from a tour, late afternoon, prior to departing for the airport, even though we had checked out of our room early that morning. Breakfast was of a good standard with both European and Asian options available.
Would definitely recommend. Very good value for money!

For something different, try going for an early morning walk around the Lake - 7am - to catch the locals doing their early morning exercises! Some groups even invite you to join in! It's a nice time of the day as the streets are clear and the air is cool!

I stayed here with my husband and teenage son. It is located in the old quarter and was a very easy walk to the markets and the water puppet show. There is a lake closeby within easy walking distance. The hotel was clean and comfortable. We found the breakfast very nice and it was included in our room price. The staff were very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.
