“Superb Japanese style hotel”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

We stayed here for a few days to chill after months of travel. We chose it as it has a Japanese standard. The pool was wonderfully warm, the spa and massages were great, the rooms are spotless and the breakfast very good. We ate dinner there twice and it was superb. The taxi ride to town is 70k dong, so no big deal,
There Are two minor cons:
The wifi has to be logged into every day and if it trips (which is common in Hanoi).
The hot water, although hot, was low on pressure.
Overall we had a very restful and indulgent stay. The staff are very pleasant and want to please.

This hotel ís absolutely perfect. We cannot reccomend it enough! After staying in a, let's say, less luxurious hotel, we decided to treat ourselves...and boy were we treated! Amazing food, free mini bar, clean rooms, comfy beds, toilets that clean and masage your bottom! plus staff that go the extra mile to help in any way they can. We stayed for 9 nights and coming back to thís little piece of heaven in busy Hanoi was so calming.
The pool and spa were great too and lovely gym with really good equipment.
Very good prices on food, drink and spa treatments. Everything very new and shiny!
If I ever come back to Vietnam, this ís the only hotel I would choose.
Thanks for looking after us Candeo Hotel!

Room Tip: I expect all the rooms are lovely. Ours was on 6th floor with views of the city.

I had a great experience with this hotel. Maybe one of the reason is that I got this stay for free as an offer from my friend. The hotel is new, facility is great, great view of the city at night on the 10 floor. I had a great place for parking down in the basement, the security was friendly, far better than my negative point of view on the service in Hanoi. There wasn't much stuff at the gym, but all was very modern and accessible. The pool looks great even though I didn't swim at all. Sauna and steam bath are great, there were just me and my friend using the whole facility which make it even better.

I agree with the review below that there is room for improvement in this hotel. The breakfast quality was good, but there weren't many options. The staffs are friendly but not very well-trained (at least not yet). I noticed a kitchen staff who work in the M floor was not wearing her shoes properly by stepping on the rear of them to make them more like a sandal.But rather than that, I didn't see any other thing that I would complain about. Oh, maybe one, that's Candeo located on a one way street (for car) which make it hard for getting to the hotel by cab as you'll have to go around for a long distance.

I would recommend this hotel to any one.

This was the first time we visited Hanoi and because we like Japanese hotels we thought the Candeo would be nice. The hotel is located west of the city center, close to the West Lake and the B52 Museum. The Candeo only opened a couple of months ago, so everything was brand new. Our room on the 4th floor was really nice, with plenty of space.
The weren't many guests and those who stayed at the Candeo while we were there were mostly Japanese business men.
Unfortunately we noticed a few flaws, and I guess this was due to the fact that things were not yet well coordinated. Example: 3 different employees mentiomed different opening hours of the pool. At some other occasions the same thing happened: employee A said this, and employee B said that. But all this was absolutely no problem, because the staff was so eager and willing to do things right and answer our questions, and in such a friendly and charming way, that we just could not feel negative about things. The service was really fantastic! Every day we left and entered with a smile, really nice.
So once management will improve the coordination, the Candeo will be a even better place to make your stay in Hanoi extra enjoyable.

Stayed July 2013, travelled with family
