“Excellent hotel and staff”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

We are currently staying at this small boutique hotel in the heart if the Old Quarter. It is excellent value for money, the staff are friendly, helpful and speak very good English, and the rooms are spacious and clean.
Our room is on the 2nd floor at the front (on the main road) and we have not been at all disturbed by road noise (contrary to some reviews).
We would definitely stay here again and if you want to see the best if Hanoi, this hotel is perfectly located.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

I judge a hotel on cleanliness and helpfulness ... the Oriental Central scores full marks for both, and for everything else for that matter!
Because the price was so reasonable, I went for a junior suite. It was on the 7th floor facing the front. You would never have known there was a busy street below, it was a wonderfully silent and cool retreat from a busy day out on the streets (and I mean streets, not pavements) of Hanoi.
I would recommend visiting "the Orchid" restaurant a couple of doors along... grilled fish that you make up into your own rice paper rolls and the grilled aubergine with steamed rice! You can order from the Orchid in your room and I did that once too when just too hot and exhausted to go out again. Helpful if you have the right money, they take payment on delivery.
Can't speak more highly of the Oriental Central. They made my trip to Hanoi run smoothly with their attention to detail and calm courtesy.

Room Tip: junior suite if your budget will stretch !

Overall the hotel was excellent. The rooms are lovely, very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. What makes this hotel so special is the service as they really went above and beyond to help us. After a long trip back from halong bay Brian arranged for us to use a room before our over night train so we could have a shower and relax. They then arranged a car and escort who took us right to our train carriage which was so helpful. They also gave us a goodie bag of food for the train. All this without asking for an extra charge. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Hanoi.

The two best things about the Oriental Central Hotel are it’s staff and location. From arrival at the hotel, we were treated so well by Brian and his team. There was no request to great for them and they treated my wife and I as if we were their most important clients. The rooms are a great size, comfy beds and really nice showers. We stayed on two separate occasions and because we were return customers they even upgraded us to their best room on our 2nd stint. The location couldn’t be better with the hotel situated just near everything the Old Quarter has to offer. Beer corner just 4 mins away, the best Pho in Hanoi 5 mins away and all the shops at your doorstep. Would highly recommend this hotel! Thanks to Brian and the rest of the Oriental Central staff for everything!

We were warmly greeted upon arrival and treated like a vip. Receptionist were friendly and gave personal attention to all guest. Rooms though slightly small, it has everything you need from a 5 star hotel. Waking up to a hearty breakfast at the hotel before starting our tour around town was fulfilling.

The Oriental Central is a super little 'oasis' set amid the 'madness' of Hanoi Old Quarter. The entrance is clean, modern and welcoming and there is a definitely feeling of safety and home as you cross the threshold. The rooms/bathrooms are nicely presented and the staff are very welcoming. On arrival we were given a very comprehensive introduction to the area and a map was issued with all highlights marked. The staff also took great care to warn us of scams so that we could avoid. There is very definitely a personal touch here which extended to the complimentary fruit basket on our arrival. We stayed here are a family of 4 in two rooms. We cant say anything negative about the Oriental except that we were sad to leave it.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front on the 6th floor - no complaints at all. Our children also had a room on...
