Calypso Palace Hotel
Ranked #298 of 607 Hotels in Hanoi
Reviewed 14 October 2012

The hotel is in one of the most historical street of The old City. Crowded, with small bars and restaurant. Price is reasonable, rooms cleaned and nice, quite new. Some room has also small balcony on the crowded street. Very good breakfast, both western and eastern. Staff surprisingly nice and friendly, good English and excellent service. In the bathroom they provide toothbrush and thee was jacuzzi. Good restaurants and bars on the same road, there is a kind of Hostel pub full of traveller of all kind, from backpackers to couples, single also a family of French with 2 babies of 1 and 4, and delicious Vietnamese restaurants, both in the typical local Tube houses narrow with several floors, or on the streets, where they commonly eat every day. Really perfect for 2/3 days in the city. The street is crowded an really lively from early in the morning, so do not expect to have a quite long sleep, but notice the local nightlife usually ends quite early for western standards, so it is possible at 11pm everything there around can be close. They provide service to airport at same price than taxi drivers, at the time you want, around 330.000 viet$ . (100.000viet$ are 4euro cc).

I stayed here in January 2012 with my family and it was a great location. The rooms were spacious and even though our children were on a different floor they felt close and it seemed safe and easy. The trip to Halong Bay organised by the hotel (by email before we arrived) was a highlight of our trip to Vietnam.

I had stayed here from 15 Jun to 30 Jun 09 and the experience has been superb. Its located right at the heart of Hanoi in the Old Quarter which is where all the action, sights, sound, and taste of Hanoi are. On top of that the Hotel staff are superb, ready to help you always trying make your stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms overlooking Hoan Kiem lake are especially nice. The best part is you step out of Hotel and you are in Old Quarter. I will be definately staying here during my next visit. Thanks a lot Hanoi Old City hotel.

Several of my friends had been to Vietnam for business and vacation, while they all said that Vietnam was beautiful and the people wonderful, i'd heard a few horror stories about the Hotels they had stayed at. So when a group of friends and i decided to go for a holiday to Vietnam, i was a little nervous. Thankfully i had nothing to worry about as we booked into " Hanoi Old City Hotel ". What a wonderful stay i had, my friends and i are going back again in a few months !! The Hotel is very clean and fresh, the staff are very kind and friendly, infact i would say that they go above and beyond their duty as they're so very helpfull and respectfull. I enjoyed a hearty breakfast every morning ( which is free ), and our rooms were always spotlessly clean. We booked a tour to Sapa for a good price, there is plenty of nightlife, and lots of sightseeing to do ( i am looking forward to going on a tour to Halong Bay this time ).
This Hotel is a great find, i would recommend anyone visiting Vietnam/Hanoi to stay at the Hanoi Old City Hotel, you won't regret it.

Hotel was fantastic!
The hotel was very clean and peaceful. I have absolutely no complaints about the room we had, the hotel also offers a free breakfast which was a pleasant suprise!
It's in a great location, lots of stuff to do and see. The staff, and Manager are more then helpful if needing directions or tips on where to go, they also offer tour bookings to a couple of cool sites for great prices! Everyone is very friendly, that made the stay very enjoyable!

the hotel is located on a small street in the old quarter of Hanoi. The beautiful hoan kiem lake was a 2 minute walk away as was the water puppet theatre. the hotel staff was extremely helpful in setting up my tour to halong bay, not to mention all of the places around town that they recommended. a visit to the international bai hoi corner was done many a nights. nothing seems better than drinking $0.15 beer and meeting new faces while watching the world go by. the hotel was $25/night and offered a fantastic breakfast every morning free of charge. They even gave me a laptop to use whenever i needed it. one of things i was happy about was the fact that they had a safe in my room that i programmed myself, so i never had to worry about anything going missing. happily i will say that if there was anything i needed, being restaurant recommendations of just general information the hotel staff was always there with a smile to help. when i return next year for another vacation i will definitely be staying here again. i recommend it to anyone who wants a clean, quiet hotel without paying the luxury hotel price.
