Hanoi Meracus Hotel 1
Ranked #53 of 600 Hotels in Hanoi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We stayed at Meracus I for four nights in total. What a find. The hotel is clean, well appointed and has all mod cons you need.

The staff were fantastic - very helpful and happy to help and chat. In particular Hermes was excellent for recommending places to eat and for advice for our Ha Long Bay tour. In the end we arranged a tour to Halong bay through the hotel. This again we would recommend (Galaxy Premium).

Our room was just what we needed. Small, but perfectly formed! The beds are amazingly comfortable, and the shower was impressive. There are also some surprise touches in the room which make your stay even more comfortable. We definitely wouldn't get this sort of quality at a 3 star hotel back in the UK.

Well done Meracus I. You have got it spot on - top service, great location, excellent facilities and brilliant staff. Would highly recommend this hotel to friends.

Thanks for making our stay in Hanoi even more enjoyable.

Hotel staff are very welcoming and went above and beyond my expectations. They arranged our trip to Halong Bay and collected our train tickets for Hue. Nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Hanoi. Location is also very good. We used the hotel taxi service to get from the airport which was very efficient. Breakfast was good with selection of meat and non meat items.

We stayed 3 bights in this hotel, coming and going from our trips to Sapa, Halong Bay and Hue. We arrived at very odd hours after train and bus trips and nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. We were able to leave luggage here whenever we went away
The position is great, the staff recommended excellent places to eat (including 6.00am Pho) and shop.
The beds were the most comfortable we have found in any hotel in Asia
Would definitely stay here again

Hotel Meracus was the best hotel we stayed in during 7 months of travel. The staff, without exception, are delightful - warm, friendly and efficient. We stayed a total of 5 nights on 4 separate occasions and highly recommend staying here if you visit Hanoi's old quarter.

Room Tip: We had rooms on the 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th. Rooms facing the street are a little noisier, but not eno...

We stayed at Meracus 1 for 3 nights - 1 night before Ha Long Bay and 2 afterwards. We have travelled south and are on our last might in Ho Chi Minh City and Vietnam tonight. We have stayed at 5 hotels across Vietnam on this trip and while our experiences have all have been positive, THe Meracus was the stand out hotel simply because they exceeded our expectations in every way. Most mid range hotels in Hanoi have fairly small rooms and the Mercaus was no exception, however it was bigger than expected, very clean and extra little touches like a drink on arrival & free fruit platters in the room really helped make us feel welcome. They were aware that we were celebrating a wedding anniversary and free of charge upgraded us to a larger room, supplied fresh flowers and a "Happy Anniversary" cake. Every staff member we saw was happy, friendly and helpful and their assistance in booking tours and giving advice was terrific at this price point. The included buffet breakfasts were great - plenty of variety and quantity with Vietnamese, pan Asian, English & French style options. We can unequivocally say it was the best hotel breakfast we have experienced including a stay in a new 4 star at twice the price elsewhere in Vietnam. Staff English was very good as well. They also have a free late model laptop in every room. I highly recommend this hotel. We will certainly stay there again next year when we come back to Hanoi.

Having been to Hanoi a number of times I can wholeheartedly recommend the Meracus Hotel 1 in the old quarters. Convenient located, very new hotel with spacious and spotlessly clean rooms. Breakfast is both western and Vietnamese foods and cooked to order. But what sets this hotel apart from its rivals is the wonderful service. The staff are very attentive and very helpful. My number 1 choice of hotel for visiting Hanoi.

Room Tip: Front rooms have balcony?terraces.

Hanoi Meracus Hotel 1 is a great hotel in Hanoi, located in Old Quarter. We stayed here only for two nights, but the time spent here was amazing. The service was flawless, and our room was clean and spacious, and it had a very comfortable bed. My favorite thing about this place was definitely the way the hotel was decorated because I taught I was very welcoming and romantic. The staff also made our stay even better, being very nice and friendly. Overall, this is a hotel I would recommend everyone looking for pleasant and comfortable stay.
