“Great place for the budget conscious traveller”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We stayed at the galaxy hotel on a recent trip to Hanoi from New Zealand. This is a 3 star Hotel located in Hanoi's ' Old town district'. This place is only 3 star but is more than adequate, as good or better than most 3 star hotels here at home. Our room didnt have too many mod cons. A good little TV and a simple bathroom with slightly dated decor, but the service here was great. We took a trip up to Sapa and satyed the night, the Hotel looked after our belongings we didnt need and even let us freshen up before heading to Halong bay in there foyer after we had checked out.

Each place has a safety deposit box too

Room Tip: Try and make sure you pay to have brekkie included here, especially if its your first time and you a...

The galaxy hotel is well situated in old Hanoi, good walking distances to everything. Staff very helpful and accomodating. rooms very clean and comfortable. Watching the traffic from the window was fascinating. Kiem Lake is a must to visit at 5am, it is very beautiful. Great food at Koto restaurant

I stayed two nights at the Galaxy Hotel in mid-July. I had a large and comfortable room, though the bed was a bit hard. I found the lobby and breakfast area a bit drab and boring-looking, still, the staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel is within walking-distance of the Hoan Kiem lake and the '36 streets'.

we enjoyed our stay there. the staff is pleasant and the hotel is clean, very well situated and has free wi fi. we found the buffet breakfast to be excellent and international. we were on a tour and had to leave our luggage at the hotel for 2 days. when we came back the suitcases were waiting for us in our rooms. the hotel offers a small bottle of water per person per day.

We enjoyed staying at this hotel in the middle of crazy Hanoi. Even when we checked out they kindly let us us their foyer to rest and wait in. The rooms were immaculate and the coffee sachets delicious. Great wee cafe/bar attached. We stayed with a small tour so was good that the bus could come right to the door.

Just came back from a 4 night stay as the last part of our Vietnam trip. Hotel staff are excellent from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. Received a nice complimentary bowl of fruit on arrival which is a nice touch.

The staff speak english which is a big help compared to smaller hotels I stayed at on my travels where some hotels struggle with requests.

Nice and clean hotel with a decent range of breakfast items.

The rooms do have safety deposit boxes in them as welll as good TV's with a selection of english speaking channels which is not the case with all hotels.

Would definetly stay here again If I revisit Hanoi. Its close to the market, shops and food stalls are everywhere in abundance. The food is also good at the hotels Sidewalk Cafe, it costs a bit more but the food is worth it.

I stayed at this hotel on a bicycle tour. The hotel is largely patronized by tour groups; if you are traveling independently you could readily find more charming and contemporary accommodations. The location of the hotel lends itself well to street-side access for tour buses, which is not so readily available on quieter streets. Staff pleasant and competent. Convenient location in Old City, walking distance to a large market.
Overall, a hotel in need of refreshing.
