“Good as gold”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Good location for 1st time Vietnam travelers (like us) who knew nothing about the hazardous city life of Hanoi, with hundreds if not thousands of motor cycles which haunted the streets of Hanoi!

In any event, it was a central location, minutes of walking distance from Hoan Kiem Lake & virtually close to everything that a traveler would survive upon.

Great little gem amongst the hectic city life style of living in the capital city of Vietnam!

Room Tip: get a room with a balcony

Nice and clean hotel, large rooms, good central location, helpful staff, good breakfast ... all what we expect from a high range hotel at a very reasonable price.
We strongly recommen this hotel for anyone wanting to spend a few nights in Hanoi.

We stayed at Golden Rice for 5 nights and were blown away by the excellent standard of the hotel and the customer service. The staff were always very helpful and the hotel ever accommodating. During our stay we were away on overnight trips on 2 occasions and the hotel looked after our luggage while away. They even let us check in at 5.30am in the morning when our train arrived back into Hanoi. The location was fantastic and we walked every as it was close to the lake and many great restaurants. The beds were very comfy and the room kept well. The bathroom was by far the best we had had during our trip and very clean. It was quiet the only downfall for me was no window in our room but other then that can't complain. Definitely recommend staying here when next in Hanoi.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The location is perfect! Right in the heartbifbutball, a short walk to the jake, great shopping and many restuesnts right at the door!
The room was huge and a comfy bed. The best thing about it wait was so quiet, we were at the back if the hotel on the 7th floor and heard no street noise at all, this city is crazy with people and motor bikes so a quiet room is a blessing!
Highly reccomend this hotel.

We stayed at the golden rice for 4 days and were not disappointed. My husband, son & I were treated like we were staying at a 6 star resort. Ben the Manager goes out of his way to ensure that yo are looked after at all times. The rooms are large, very clean and well appointed with furniture and very comfortable to stay in . The staff are amazing from the doorman to the girls on reception. Nothing was a problem and Ben always ensured we were looked after.

If you are looking to stay in hanoi, don't go past this hotel,simply amazing. Thanks Ben & Staff you made our trip wonderful.

Room Tip: Room 309 & 409 are amazing for three people. no noise what so ever.

We stayed at the Golden Rice during our two week visit to Vietnam. Since we were traveling a lot, we were back and forth to the hotel and they kept our luggage in between. They were very accommodating and extremely responsive staff! You could not ask for a better location - and despite being in the heart of Hanoi the rooms are large and very quiet. Breakfast was included and as others have mentioned, free wifi throughout the hotel. We were very happy with this choice!

Room Tip: 709 is the nicest room we saw! Has an outdoor patio.
