“Anise Hotel Review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

The air conditioning in the room was not cool. We were perspiring like crazy. The management said it would take more than half an hour to cool down but it didn't the whole night. However, if you are not bothered by the air conditioning not working well and able to stand the heat, then it would not be so bad.The power points were hidden behind cabinets and was hard to get to when I wanted to charge my phone. Location wise, it is good. It is walking distance to the night market and restaurants. Breakfast is good. Room is clean.

Room Tip: Should be fine if you are staying there in Spring, Fall or Winter but not in Summer where the temper...

If you want somewhere to stay that is hassle free, friendly and clean you will not go far wrong. We stayed here for two nights, followed by a third after a day trip to Halong Bay. Located near the old town, it's a 15-20min walk to the lake past lots of shops and dodging the bikes that make getting around Vietnam that extra bit dangerous and special.

The staff at the hotel are very helpful, it is cool and calm which is what we needed when we turned up in the manic bustle of Ha Noi. Breakfast was simple, but in the heat of the city it was ample and there was enough to choose from. On our third night we also ate in the hotel. We usually hit the streets every night but we were just shattered. We were the only ones there but that was no reflection on the food. It was cheap, plenty of choice, simple and full of flavour.

The two rooms we had were really nice. The currency exchange service at reception is also a great help.

Easy to get gluten free food? Not the easiest, but they got it and were able to look after us for our two short stays.

Room Tip: It is extra for a room with a window - it's not much extra and well worth doing it.

We were a little daunted when we first arrived on the street of the hotel – having come straight from the airport, the hustle and bustle was quite intense. However, once we got inside to the bright and fresh reception area of the Anise Hotel we were made to feel very welcome.

We had a beautiful room at the front of the building on the 8th floor. It was very modern and comfortable and the shower was great.

We had a very enjoyable meal in the rooftop restaurant one evening and there was lots of choice at breakfast; both traditional Vietnamese and a more continental offering.

In terms of location, it is within easy walking distance of the Old Quarter and we were able to navigate ourselves pretty well using the hotel map – just watch out for the bikes, they will go around you!

If this is your first stay in Vietnam don't be put off by the street appearance. As with any good hotel in Vietnam, as soon as you walk in the door all the street noise, heat and grime dissappears. Anise has all you require for your stay in Hanoi. The rooms are clean and comfortable and you can walk to pretty much everywhere. Breakfast is a combination of local and international with an omlette chef which is always a bonus. The bar downstairs does a nice iced coffee which is welcome at the end of a hot day. As is usual for most hotels in Vietnam the beds are too firm and the wifi is a lottery.

Just stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip. Anise is a lovely hotel. We had a spacious bedroom which had fresh fruit & flowers in on our arrival. Lots of space and a great bathroom too. All staff are lovely & friendly. We tried the restaurant which was reasonably priced for central Hanoi. The area is great and the old quarter is practically on the doorstep.
Would stay here again.

Good things: great location (near old quarter), good breakfasts, clean and spacious room.
Less good things: noisy rooms at front of hotel, extremely hard bed.

Overall very good value for money but it's a simple hotel, I would say a decent 3-star.
