“Helpful director and friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

My parents highly recommended the place. The arrangements were very well done. The staff was friendly. And the place had a simple family feeling. Very comfortable. The external tours were also well arranged. We had a nice first trip to Vietnam. Thanks to Mr Do. and family for the great hospitality!

The staff are really just great. We are moving here to study for 6 months, and they have helped us with everything we could possibly need or ask them. They even helped us fin scooters to buy and looked for an appartment near our school. They are to be trusted.

Location is perfect, in the middle of the old quarter. Rooms are basic, but contains all you need. Price is also very good. Highly reccomended as a safe introduction to chaotic Hanoi.

The moment we reached Hanoi and step into Discovery, we are warmly welcomed by Mr. Do who has never failed to help and guide us accordingly. He has arranged all our trips and packages with a very reasonable price. Also, we had a mix-up by one of the tour company and I called Mr. Do for help. Immediately he responded and help telling me not to worry and arrange everything according to plan again. You must come to this hotel if you visit Hanoi! The cheapest and best service provided of all!

Mr. Dô, the proprietor of Discovery Hotel proved himself to be honest, flexible and very helpful when I first landed in Hanoi. He helped me get my bearings and didn't take advantage of the fact that I was new to the area and didn't quite have a feel for prices or how Vietnam operates. He never pushed package tours but made sure I had what I needed. Items in the mini fridge were very fairly priced, another small sign that he has a good deal of respect for his customers. When I head back to Hanoi I will almost certainly stay at Discovery Hotel again.

Just come back from Hanoi yesterday...
Stay at Discovery Hotel for 3 days, this is a great option for low cost hotel in hanoi...
1) The owner (Mr Do), his wife and all the stuff are very helpful and friendly...
2) The Trips to Halong Bay (phoenix Cruise) and Sapa that arrange by Mr Do was great and price are reasonable and lower than other agent.
3) Room with Free Wifi and PC to use.
4) Location in the heart of the old quater.
5) Mr Do and his wife are pleasant and speak good English.

And Mr Do, let me use his cellphone to call back Malaysia due to roaming not working and only charge me for only US1....

Thank you Mr. Do and we'll definitely be going back again when we visit Hanoi! :)

Strongly recommend !!!

This is a low cost hotel which makes me feel like I was at home.
The owner even invited me to his home dinner with his family.
No cheating, You want a taxi, he will talk to the driver to make sure that the driver will not cheat.
Changing money was easy with the best rate.
