Hanoi Topaz Hotel

Reviewed May 22, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights before our Halong Bay trip, and again when we got back. The staff are the friendliest we've met on our trip, and also the most helpful. They don't really push too much to sell you things, and seem to genuinely want to help you make the most of your trip.
I got sick whilst on our Halong Bay trip, and ended up being admitted to hospital the first night we got back to Hanoi. The hotel were brilliant at arranging taxi's at 4am, and consequently helping us rearrange flights, hotels and dealing with the hospital in the days after. They remained professional, helpful and genuine throughout.
The hotel itself is in a great location, rooms are very clean, AC works well, free wifi and desktop in the room, good shower with about 5 different shower head options to choose from... pretty novel after being in Vietnam for nearly a month.
Breakfast is good, there's a small buffet, and a menu you order from for cooked food. You can choose as many options as you want from the menu too.
Didn't eat in the restaurant, but the hotel made us room service the night I got back from hospital and made a dish not on the menu as it was the only thing I could stomach!!

WOW... What a perfect little gem in the midst of Old Quarter, Hanoi. If it had not been for the Groupon Purchase, I would never have found this gorgeous boutique Hotel, with its beautiful staff whom couldn't do enough for me. I was a solo traveller, first time in Vietnam, and was to also take an overnight sleeper train to Sapa for a Trek.

First off, I was graced with the 7th floor suite, spa bath, balcony, TV (English channels), computer and wifi. I could not fault anything AT ALL. Clean, fresh, and the room was roomy, bright and quiet. I couldn't hear anything from busy Hanoi streets below.
Second, because I was a lone lady traveller, the receptionist kept me fully informed of what, where and how to do Hanoi. They also ensured my train trip and Trek went without a hitch with the bellboy taking me to the train station, collecting me my ticket and seeing me right to my carriage, then on my return, he was right there, 4.30am, to pick me up and see me safely back to my hotel. OMG ... The staff and organisation of this hotel made it the highlight of my Vietnam Pilgrimage. I was more than happy to leave a princely tip in their tip jar (although I know that tips go straight to the hotelier owners, the owners have obviously worked well to have such efficient beautiful staff).
Thirdly, I'd loved to have tipped each staff member individually, but as I found out, the staff put the tips into the tip-box anyhow, and they all love their job at Hotel Topaz.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for the most welcoming stay on my maiden-solo-voyage.

I stayed here with a colleague on a short visit to Vietnam. We arrived at 6AM!! We were able to go to our room with a half day charge. The next day we were returned to Hanoi when our HaLong Bay trip was cancelled, arriving back at midnight. We were upgraded to a family room with balcony. Over the course of a week, we stayed here about 5 nights with the hotel booking other tours for us - a day trip and then an overnight to Mai Chau. Prior to our late departure from Hanoi, we were able to rest at the hotel. Breakfast western or asian was very good. We had dinner at the restaurant the last night and it was one of the best we had in Hanoi - delicious and comparable cost wise to other eating places. We actually ate locally on the street the night before and it was more expensive and not nearly as nice as the hotel restaurant. Best thing - both rooms we occupied had a spa! Heaven coming from living in China with just a shower. The reception staff spoke very good english. The restaurant staff spoke very well and were so helpful. The hotel is in the old city with lots of interesting things around you - a nice walk to the night market or the lake. Very happy to return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the street is nicer - the family room on the 5th floor had 2 large twin beds and a...

I booked the Topaz because of it's location and also because it seemed a good rate for a nice suite with a terrace & jacuzzi tub.

The room was nice. The jets in the tub didn't really work all that well. And it was a little too hot, then rainy, to sit on the terrace.

I will write however to commend the efforts of the excellent staff, in particular Bella & his colleague at the front desk. I stay in a lot of hotels and I have to say the attention and care put towards the customers in the hotel by the staff was exceptional. I even witnessed her come down into the restaurant during breakfast to suggest to a German guest with a sore throat some soup in the morning. Each interaction with the staff at could have ended with a pat on the back, a hug or even a high five! They were that good... that cool!

I'll definitely return to this hotel on my next stay in Hanoi.

My stay at Hanoi Topaz Hotel was truly comfortable and the amenities that were provided (such as PC with wifi and cable TV) certainly exceeded our expectations. Overall environment was clean and the beds were comfortable. But what impressed me most was certainly the staffs. They went out of the way to attend to our requests and ensured that everything was taken care of. For example, I had asked the staffs where to get a local SIM card for my mobile phone, and the next thing they did was to personally bring me to the nearest mobile phone store to purchase a local SIM card. Another example was when I was trying to arrange for a city tour for my family - despite several change in my instructions, they gladly obliged to my changes and ensured that everything was seamless. Besides the breakfast which was a little disappointing, I was really impressed with my stay at the hotel.

I highly recommend Hanoi Topaz Hotel to anyone who are thinking of visiting Hanoi. I had an excellent stay there. The staff are very helpful and they do go extra miles to make our stay there as convenient as they could and take care of the details of our needs there. The room and the tour that the hotel arranged for us are beyond satisfactory. We are very happy with the facilities and the cleanliness of our room. Hanoi Topaz hotel excel in making us feel that we are getting personal care there.

My stay here was nothing but pleasant. The staff were great, the rooms fairly priced, and the standards high. I got to know the staff really well and even got to hear more about their lives. You could tell they were really invested in their work and committed to delivering fantastic service and a great all round experience.

The rooms were well equipped, comfy, relatively quiet (we were on the second floor at the front) and clean- all big ticks.

The tours were booked directly with the hotel prior to arriving and all went off without a hitch. The staff picked us up at 4am from the train station with a smile. It rained as we were about to explore Hanoi and they gave us umbrellas. They rushed over to the Hanoi water puppet theatre to pre-book our tickets for the evening show. They walked me directly to the chemist to make sure I found it. All round, it was the little things that made the stay as great as it was.

I wish Johnny, Kevin and the whole team much success and strongly recommend any traveller stay here if they are wanting efficient and easy going service and manned by staff that provide an all round fantastic service experience.
