Reviewed December 10, 2012

I can only say positive things about this hotel. Friendly service, good rooms with TV, a laptop computerwith free WIFI, small mini bar at reasonable prices - in brief all the things you need, when you are travelling light. And a nice varied breakfast.

I think it is a real good bargain at the price.

The May De Ville is located in the heart of the old quarter but in a quiet side street so there is no Road noise in the rooms and remains tranquil.
Some of the best Bia Hoi stands and street food are right outside with great shops, markets and bars within a few minutes walk. The lake is at the bottom of the street less than 5 minutes away.
Rooms are very clean and lovely showers with free water everyday and a good secure safe. WiFi signal was always strong in the rooms and reception. Breakfast was ok and served in the rooftop restaurant. Food choice could be improved but it was free so can't grumble.
The staff are very helpful organising Taxi transfers and giving recommendations for restaurants etc...
Of particular mention is Michael the travel manager in the lobby. He helped us out on numerous occasions for no gain to himself or the hotel. When our hotel in Sapa could not find any return train tickets Michael Organised them with ease. He was one of the most helpful people we met on our trip and would not hesitate to go back again.
The hotel even allowed us to leave our bags(free of charge) in their secure storage room for a week so we old travel light to Sapa and Halong Bay.
We would like to thank all of the staff at the hotel especially Michael for making our stay so easy.

A centrally located hotel in the Old Quarter and within easy walking of shops and places to eat. Room was small but clean and staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet very average and dining room very cramped. But overall a good location to see the sights and get a feel of the city.

Fantastic little hotel in a superb location. Very clean modern rooms with great staff on the reception. Michael on the tour desk was there to offer any advice with regards to tours and onward travel. The only negative point I have is that the breakfast was not up to much.

A good start to our holiday. The hotel is well situated in the old quarter very handy for restaurants and shopping. The room was clean and changed every day, free wi-fi. The breakfast buffet was ok, a bit slow to top up if you came down a little later. The staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Seems like we stayed at a different hotel than most other reviewers. Rooms small; roaches in 2 rooms of our group; staff clueless; breakfast minimalist, at best (watched server putting out more cheese by pulling apart slices with his bare hands then tossing them on a plate). Don't even think about eating there for dinner...no staff to be found. Yes, there is free wifi. That's the nicest comment I can make.

Room Tip: Do Not get a room facing the front of the hotel...propaganda broadcasts begin at 6:45am

Overalll a really good hotel in a great location right in the heart of the old quarter and only a short walk from the lake and puppet theatre. Rooms were clean, changed every day and the facilities likewise. Not sure it has a bar or catering other than breakfast, but given the location, there ar plenty of choices!
