Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We stayed there for 3 days 2 nights in September 2013. Gondola is a quite good hotel with excellent location, right at the central of Old Quarter and near the lake. Buffet breakfast is fantastic with different choices. Room is quite comfortable and well-equipped.If I had chance to come back Vietnam, I would surely stay here. 5 points for Gondola Hotel.

Right in the middle of the old quarter close to the lake, perfect location. Rooms clean, upstairs bar serves great cocktails and there's plenty of restaurants, markets, shops etc. nearby.

Guest Relations Manager Ms Hien Tran is very helpful and good at arranging tours etc.

Have had better food than the breakfast here and the room service but that's not why you stay here. The location really is great.

Room Tip: 8th floor is a little noisy due to the bar upstairs

When I finish my trip in Vietnam, I think I get the most help from the staff of this hotel.For example,I want to eat the chicken rice-noodle ,they will recommend the store which local people like very much ,and show the route on the map.

We returned for a two stays while in Vietnam in October. The staff were always very friendly, obliging and helpful. The hotel is close to everything in the centre of Hanoi with plenty of great restaraunts and cafes nearby. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with great facvilities. The hotel offered many other convenient facilites for guests also eg. laundy service, internet, taxi and tour bookings. The attached restaurant and bar were also an added bonus. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are wonderful and have a balcony. They are not that much more expensive.

This hotel is in a fantastic location to shops and the lake and is in a quiet street. The room we had was large and spotless. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
Would highly recommend this hotel

As you might expect from the title the location of this hotel is superb. In the old quarter, on a quiet(ish) street but amongst the hustle and bustle, lake just round the corner and many restaurants and sights in easy walking distance. So a great choice to experience Hanoi's old quarter at first hand.
Brilliantly quirky being a modern boutique hotel next door to a cafe for locals with cockerel and hen clucking amongst the tables and traffic.
Staff were brilliant, particularly those on the front desk with infectious smiles and enthusiastic service. Nothing is too much trouble. Genuinely interested in how good a day you have. A real credit to the hotel.
New hotel. Typical narrow frontage but deep, meaning rooms are compact with a roomy walk in shower instead of bath. Impressive views offered by the surrounding windowed roof top bar although the glass itself makes it difficult to get the temperature comfortable.
Breakfasts ok, just wish they would refill the juices when empty before being asked.

Would recommend.

Room Tip: go higher to get away from street noise.

We stayed here 26 sept 2013 and had a great stay. Leave your bags here if you are going to Saps or Halong Bay and returning. Eat with the locals to taste the true culture.
Water Puppet show is worth seeing. Shop at the markets and bargain with stall holders for best price. Bb
