“Good position1 Breakfast Limited! Dog Barking everynight”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Having just stayed at the Skylark for 1 week. It is in a good position close to the Old Quarter.
When we first pulled up it looked very small but on entering it is quite surprising.
The rooms are very large with good beds.
Bathrooms are large with a spa bath.
The staff have limited English.
Cleaning is only just the beds are made daily and towels changed but nothing else!!!
The floor was not mopped or swept for the whole week.
Breakfast is very limited a lot of work to be done here to measure up.
Pool is small but adequate to cool off definitely not for swimming.
Doorman are wonderful.
Close to Don Xuan Markets.
There was a dog barking everynight from the left hand side property!!!

This hotel is a small hotel situated in a very busy area across the road from a small park. It is within walking distance of the old quarter and several coffee shops. We were highly impressed with the quality of the rooms and the very efficient and friendly service from the staff. This hotel was amongst the best of several that we stayed at in Vietnam. The rooms are well equipped and comfortably spacious. The bathrooms only have a shower but this was more than adequate.

The swimming pool at the top floor was small and the water slightly greenish. Still, our kids enjoyed a refreshing splash in the pool from time to time. A little more attention could be given to making the pool and gym area more user-friendly.

Breakfasts were adequate but not great. The coffee was good and strong but not always fresh. Similarly, the restaurant seemed to be somewhat limited but that might improve as the hotel manages to attract more guests.

Laundry at the hotel is expensive. Do NOT try out the place across the road/park - they ripped us off by charging VD65000/kg when others charge as little as VD15000/kg

The front desk staff are extremely friendly and helpful and more than made up for any shortfalls that this hotel might have. Would we go back? Definitely!

I don't normally bother writing hotel reviews, but with the Skylark I will definitely make an exception. After considerable time spent researching options for a Hanoi base from which to launch several legs of our North Vietnam trip, I chose the Skylark hotel and hoped for the best. 5 minutes walk from the old quarter but far enough removed from the madness, it seemed perfect. For once, our experiences exceeded our expectations. We stayed in 3 different rooms, and all were excellent. Clean, well appointed, exactly as described, and amazingly even appeared bigger than in the pictures for once and not magnified by some sort of trick photography. The rooftop pool, although small was a little oasis and great for families with kids, the food was nice and prices reasonable. The best part, however was the one thing you can't capture in a review.... the staff. Without exception the staff were excellent - however, especially worthy of mention was Ngyuen Thi Mai on the front desk who beamed and welcomed us like family every time we returned, helped us with phone calls, taxis and advice and the doorman who greeted us every day and took our side when the only taxi driver who tried to inflate our fare tried it on and sent him packing by defending his guests. 10/10 guys. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in 806, 801 and 701. All were very good, 806 at the front was definitely the best room, bu...

This hotel is a good location with lots of places to eat close by. It had it's little maintenance faults but the staff were quick to address any issues asap. It cannot be described as a swimming pool.

What makes this hotel is the care and attention of the staff. All are friendly and welcoming with a 'nothing is too much bother' attitude. Special mention should go to Mai. She not only gives good, expert and professional advice but goes beyond the call of duty to make you feel welcome always greeting you with a smile. They obviously work hard on their customer care and service.

I really felt like it was my home from home and would stay there again. I stayed on two seperate accossions this trip.

Room Tip: Rooms prices can be negotiated r even upgraded dependent on the length of your stay.

We hopped on and off the hotel throughout our northern Vietnam itinerary and we were so impressed with the service. The staff always remembered us, were very helpful and warm, and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, including finding somewhere for us to shower after we checked out, before our train.

The location is ideal, just outside and walking distance from the center of Old Quarter, but a lot quieter. The breakfast was better than I expected, and the cleanliness of the entire hotel was quite impressive.

Very good option!

We stayed at the Skylark hotel in Hanoi on 3 occasions. First for few days to visit Hanoi, then on our return from Sapa visit and another time on our return from Halong Bay trip. Have to say this hotel was excellent. Staff excellent and friendly, especially Ms Mai, she was FOM and Mr Tung, the doorman.The hotel manager was also very attentive and helpful. Room was great. Had executive room each stay which is at front of hotel with nice big window overlooking park and street. Bed comfy, Great position, just near old Quarter and market. Only few minutes walking. Would recommend this hotel when visiting Hanoi.

This is the first trip of our group in Hanoi and we got this hotel as the company strongly recommended it. The hotel is actually very good. the location is great which is around some minutes walking from the night market and the nice shopping area surrounding.
The hotel room is really fantastic. We got all the space we need even for the one with 3 persons in a room. The lovely girls down at the lobby and breakfast really brought a friendly emotion to us. The breakfast is also nice with many choices but there is a small matter of the crowd and the rush hour everyday.

Room Tip: The hotel has a good swimming pool on the top with good view. We was told that this is one of the fe...
