“feels like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

Fantastic hotel - what you see is what you get. Spacious clean rooms, modern bathroom (hot water all day and you can take a shower without flodding the place), reasonable priced, perfect location in the middle of the old quarter, near lots of restaurant, the lake, the water puppet theatre, etc.

We stayed here 4 nights - went to an orphanage and came back for another 3 nights,

Large breakfast choice and the day we checked out we had to leave early, so they packed our breakfast to take away. They asked us of we feel comfortable with it - we just thought to leave without breakfast. It is just an example they really care about their customers.

Lovely and friendly people - they made our stay very comfortable and we feel we were at home. They paid a lot of attention to our kids and had fun with them.

We definitly recommend this place

This hotel is now known as Aquarius Legend Hotel. We stayed for 4 nights and highly recommend it.

The hotel is located in the centre of the old quarter within walking distance to many of the shops, restaurants and lake. When we booked, we requested that we could check in early if possible as we were arriving from a night bus which they honoured. We had booked a standard room which unfortunately did not have an external window however it was well appointed with a massive bed, all toiletries, a powerful shower over a bath (so water did not go all over the floor) and a laptop for internet access. The shower was good but would go cold after about 5-7 mins so we had to be quick! The staff were all wonderful and extremely helpful with any questions we had.

When we returned from Halong Bay we were allocated a room on the front of the hotel but we found this to be very noisy from the street (even though it was 5 floors up) so recommend requesting one at the back if you are a light sleeper. As it was just one night we didn't bother asking to change. We used their airport transfer to go to the airport when leaving Hanoi and it was very reasonable.

An excellent stay and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Choose one at the back if you are a light sleeper. Standard rooms do not have external windows

We stayed at the Hanoi Value Hotel (now known as Hotel Aquarius) for the first part of our honeymoon.

The people are really warm, friendly; and welcoming. They couldn't do enough to help us, arranging a private car to and from the hotel / airport; providing a map and advice on food as well as getting around / safety in Hanoi (they are informed about their recommendations and not pushy); phoning Vietnam Airlines when our flight to Da Nang was cancelled to ask for further clarification and instructions. Hotels everywhere could learn a lesson or two from the guys here on going that extra mile. It felt like a home away from home. On top of all this we were greeted with a bunch of flowers, a cake to congratulate us on our marriage and given an upgrade to a city view room.

Our room was clean and modern (more so than any of the hotel rooms I've stayed in for higher price tags in Europe) consisting of a really comfy (huge) bed, LCD TV, Laptop, free wifi, electronic safe, clean toilet and great power shower with hot water...couldn't ask for more

The breakfast was great. Something for everyone. Without question you should try the Chicken Noodle Soup. I guarantee you will have it every morning.

The location is great for getting around Hanoi. It's right in the heart of the old quarter and walking distance to all the major sites and attractions Hanoi has to offer, as well as some great restaurants.

Thank you everyone at the Hanoi Value Hotel / Aquarius Hotel for making the start of our honeymoon so memorable and special.

We had such a lovely stay- stayed here for four nights and booked two rooms. It looks and feels like a hotel but has the warmth and friendliness of a B&B as it's family-run and we had a nice yarn with the owner each day. The staff definitely go the extra mile when it comes to customer service- from helping us to get some good local fruit and even arranging to have breakfast packed for us on the last day as we had an early morning flight out. It's great value with spacious rooms, close walk to the lake, shopping area and great food nearby although only downside is it can get noisy at times. Overall though, its quality of service is just excellent.

A very pleasurable stay with excellent services. The rooms are very clean and well set with all essential equipments for an enjoyable stay. The environment is great with friendly staffs and good security. The prices are reasonable. Hence, I would highly recommend this place for those who come to visit as this is close to shops and supermarkets as well as the many iconic Hanoi locations. Overall, I am happy with the stays and would come back when I visit Hanoi again. Rate this 5/5.

Stayed in this small hotel around 4 weeks altogether in October, November and December 2012, both for business and pleasure. It is a family-run hotel. Staff are friendly and professional, in particular the receptionist is very good. Essential staff speak English well, which is a welcome change from many small hotels in Hanoi, where you have to struggle to make yourself understood. Rooms have all amenities you need. There even is a computer in each room. And they have real showers (not the kind where you have to stand in the bath or where the whole bathroom gets wet when you take a shower). They only serve breakfast, no lunch or dinner, but with so many restaurants all over the old city, that is no problem. Only one snag - the karaoke across the street is loud and clear from 15.00 till midnight, every day. Only a problem if you have a room on the street side. See below for choice of rooms.
Personal service at a very competitive price in the heart of the old city on a non-tourist street, yet 3 minutes from Hoan Kiem Lake.

Room Tip: Most people here stay only one or a few nights, but if you stay here longer you might want to ask fo...

This hotel was a pleasure to stay at, everything was perfect, from the bell boy opening the doors of our taxi on arrival and taking our bags directly to our rooms, to the instant check in at the counter. Great welcoming from Hanoi Value hotel
Rooms were spacious, beds fresh and comfortable. I cannot believe that hotel also provides the massage machine & laptop inside the room .The staff also seems very friendly and available. Hardly ever needed to wait and there was always warm greetings when we chanced upon them during the stay.
