5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2010

The location is absolutely snack dab in the center of old town and walkable from everything. Service is fantastic--the staff bent over backwards to help us in every way. The place is new and its clear they're looking to put themselves on the map as one of the best affordable ish modern hotels. Their efforts are by and large successful. Only quibble was the layout of bedroom but nothing that should make you twice about staying here. What the places lacks in polish it makes up for in genuine enthusiasm , warmth, and eagerness to please. Highly recommended.

This hotel is located right in the heart of the old quarter. Walk to everything. The staff were the lovliest people ever. So friendly, so helpful - we loved them so much. Took about 10 photos just of the staff!!! On our last day the door man wanted to make sure we got the the train station and got on the right platform, so he followed our taxi on his motorbike and escorted us to our Orient Express Carriage on the Hanoi to Lao Cai . I will never forget his little helmet and glowing face riding side by side in the crazy Hanoi traffic. We will be back. Rooms very clean and hotel only 2 yrs old. only $40 night . Highly recommend it.

I try to travel abroad at least once a year, and this time was Vietnam Hanoi.

I reviewed almost all hotels listed in Tripadvisor, and chose this hotel and I think it was one of the best decisions I made during the trip.

Staff service just great. After staying one night, all staff know who you are and what you expect from the hotel. It means, you don't have to tell the same thing over and over again to different staff as they do shift work. - especially your city tour schedule, your check - out time, transportation service etc.

I had 8 am flight going back home and needed to check out at 5 am. They arrange me breakfast at my room prior to my check-out. It think this was great. Also the room is equipped with genuine IBM note book with free internet! (not wireless though).

Unless you are after Sheraton or Sofitel 5 star hotel, this will be the best choice in Hanoi.

** Try not to stay at lower than Usd 30 / night hotel. They are okay. I should say they are good if you only think about sleeping and your top priority is your budge. But the room usually has no windows, very poor breakfast, staff also go to bed when you go to bed etc....I stayed one very high ranked in tripadvisor. IT was cheap budget hotel, it was okay. But, I decided to spend extra USd 10 - 15 / night and it was worthy.

The hotel is located in Old Quarter of Hanoi and close to everything. I stayed in this hotel for a month. Overall, the service provided is great, staff are helpful and will assist you with everything. Rooms are good. Breakfast is fine, but variety of food could be better. I am very satisfied with the level of service provided throughout my stay at this hotel and would choose to stay next time when return to Hanoi.

Our fourth visit to Hanoi in five years turned out to be our best, thanks in large part to our month-long stay at Hotel May de Ville.

We find the May de Ville to be a spectacularly good value, given its location in the heart of the Old Quarter, the comfort of its rooms, its impeccable housekeeping, heavenly bedding—and especially its helpful and gracious staff.

Management and staff are thoroughly professional, and keenly attentive to the needs of their guests. We appreciated their help with taxis, reservations and recommendations. The generous spirit of the place begins at the door, where young doormen were always on hand to welcome us with a smile. Breakfast was good and service was unfailingly friendly.

For Hanoi-lovers like us, we enjoyed being just two blocks from Hoan Kiem Lake, close to the shopping district of St Joseph’s Cathedral and within easy access of the French Quarter. For trips out of town, a travel agent is available at a desk in the lobby.

The May de Ville’s rooms and lobby are comfortably furnished with the same careful attention to detail that one finds throughout the hotel. The rooms are bright and clean, with highest quality bedding and linens.

We are already planning our next trip to Hanoi, and we’ll be staying again at the Hotel May de Ville. We are happy to give it top grades in every category.

I had never been to Hanoi before but staying at May De Ville Old Quarter during my past trip last month is now one of the factors (besides Hanoi itself) that makes me absolutely want to come back. It got the package: incredible staff and service, the location, decoration, and most importantly the comfort that it gives you while staying there. Located in the center of the city and close to the attractions and sites, it makes you feel convenient and comfortable being even a wayfarer (even though Hanoi itself is small). I highly recommend this hotel to anyone that plans to visit Hanoi and I myself would definitely come back choosing this place.

This was a very nice hotel in Hanoi - very clean and upmarket. The only problem was that it was a bit far from the shopping area and when we were there in November there was construction going on near the hotel which was quiet disturbing - but u cant fault the hotel for it
