This is a superb small hotel in the mid of the old town of Hanoi. We found our stay to be the perfect choice for getting introduced to Hanoi City and exploring Halong Bay. The staff was extremely attentive and made us immediately familiar with all we should take into account for the forthcoming stay and our excursion to Halong Bay. In the following days, everything was most appropriate. I would not hesitate to get back to this hotel whenever I return to Hanoi.

Room Tip: You should ask for a room with free view instead of facing a wall

The staff was able to speak and understand English very well and they went out of their way to help with our questions, special requests and a side trip. The breakfast crew were very attentive and the food tasted great and was pleasing to the eye when it was presented. The buffet was the best we experienced in Asia this trip.

The location was very convenient to our favorite area, but one can get disorientated easily when off the major roads, so a good local map with the hotel address can get you back by taxi when you are really confused. There was a gray wall about 16" away from our room window, but we had plenty of natural light stream in during the day. Since we were gone all day, a view was not essential to our enjoyment of the room.

While we were there, folks from all over the world passed through the breakfast area including some with young children.

We stayed at the Calypso for nights in November 2013. The staff were extremely friendly and very very helpful! They had great advice and gave us a lot of information. The breakfast was superb, Pho Bo was my favourite! I highly recommend this hotel, it was nice and clean. There were no nasty bugs to be seen anywhere! The beds were comfortable and the rooms are air-conditioned. But what made our stay more memorable was the staff!! I cant express how awesome they were!! If I head back to Hanoi, I know where I will be staying :-).....

Stayed in this boutique hotel for 2 nights.

Location - it is at the heart of the Old quarter. Walking distance to attractions, restaurants, and markets.

Room - Very clean and cozy. Complimentary fresh fruit basket and bottles of water in the room.

Service - On the first night, there were some issues with the toilet in the room. I brought this up with the manager the following day. I was moved to a better room on the top floor the next night. The upgraded room was much better than the first.
Staff was very helpful in recommending places to eat.

Breakfast - Complimentary. Selection of freshly cooked breakfast from the menu. fresh fruit, juices, delicious spring rolls on the buffet table.

Will definitely stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms are better.

We stayed here for 3 nights in November. Very impressive service from the staff, gave good tips and information and were really nice and friendly.
Location of the hotel is good and in the middle of the old quarters, walking distance to nice restaurants, the lake and the night market - but night market was not very interesting for us, cheap clothes and could get nicer handicraft at cheaper prices at shops near the hotel (so, tip is : u could give nite mkt a miss!)
Back to the hotel, breakfast was nice, pho is yummy and u could choose also a western breakfast.
Room tip : there was some construction in the middle of the night that woke us up..at 2-3am, really loud, so maybe ask for a room further from these road works etc..
Overall, pleasant hotel that is really value for money!
