This is a great lower-cost option in Hanoi. The owners are terrific and wonderfully helpful, sorting out trips to Halong Bay and Sapa as well as arranging a reasonable cost transfer to the airport when I left.

I found the room very comfortable, they also have good wi-fi and in-room PCs.

The location is good but a little tucked away. However, it's a good area to be based in. Once you get to grips with getting across the roads in Hanoi - but that problem exists wherever you stay.

All in all, very happy with the whole stay.

The good:
1) Really nice owners- I'm pretty sure there not there to rip you off
2) Clean rooms
3 Free wifi
4) good location
5) COMFY BED!!!

The bad:
1) We had thin walls in our bathroom and could hear everything from next door
2) If your looking to meet people no real communal area

I'm sure there's better finds but def a good place

Very warm welcome by mr Do and his wife! Their service is excellent, besides the good " standard services" like breakfast, tours, airport pick up etc, the owners also go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible (for example a very early check-in after arriving with the night train from Sapa). The hotel is a bit hidden in an alley, but don't let that scare you off. Location is in the middle of the old quater, so great! The rooms include a private computer, tv, small fridge and private (small and simple) bathroom. The rooms are a bit outdated but for these prices and services from the owners, it's more than worth your money!

Hello everybody,

the Discovery Hotel is a little but nice hotel in the centre of the old city of Hanoi. Everyone is very friendly and I liked the shuttleservice from the airport! I felt like in a family and I would like to recommend this hotel - you can really experience the life in the middle of Hanoi with all his motorbikes and markets :)

I've been to Hanoi twice, most recently for 3+ weeks in which I spent the entire time at this hotel). It's an excellent choice in the budget hotel segment for a number of reasons:
- Location: in the heart of the Old Quarter, right near bia hoi junction but on a little lane off the street, making it more quiet than you'd expect
- Staff: Mr. Do, his wife, and his staff are truly excellent. And there's no pressure to book tours with them (although I did, and it turned out great)
- Amenities: included in the price is breakfast, AC room, private bath with hot water, mini fridge, cable TV, wireless internet access in the room
- Price: $15 for a single, a couple more for a double

The one drawback I had is the bed wasn't the most comfortable, but it was fine. Overall, I think this is an incredible value and would stay here again the next time I visit the city.
