“Great value in old quarter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Excellent hotel, staff went out of their way for us, booked Hanoi street food tour for us which we highly recommend, went to eat at little restaurants that otherwise would not have, must try Hanoi egg coffee!! Room was large with great AC. Hotel in middle of everything, buffet breakfast was also very good. Thanks to all staff:)

I booked a single room for 4 nights at Oriental Central Hotel. The location is perfect...you are right inside all the chaos of Old Quarter and within walking distance to most sites. The hotel is beautifully decorated and is very clean. The free hotel breakfast is great, and the staff are all extremely friendly and accommodating. The only really complaint I have is that the walls and doors are a bit thin so you can hear everything going on in the hallway and your neighbors rooms. I was on the 4th floor and could hear the staff setting up breakfast in the morning. Otherwise, it was a great stay!

Wow! What an excellent experience we had at the Oriental Central Hotel. The quality of service at this Hotel is amongst the highest that we have ever seen. From the moment we booked our stay through checking out, we were treated like VIP's.

Our stay in Hanoi was simply amazing and I cannot thank Mr. Brian Do, and his staff, enough for all that they did to make this part of our journey so memorable. Everything from airport pick up to Ha Long Bay arrangements to restaurant recommendations were done through the Hotel and were flawless. This is a very comfortable and friendly hotel and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an outstanding experience in the heart of the Old Quarters.

Thank you again Mr. Brian and your staff for making our short stay in Hanoi so much fun!

The staff here are friendly and warm with excellent service they followed up bookings we had made for trips on our behalf. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was included with the rate and couldnt fault. I would reccommend to friends and family.

We (my husband, I and our 18mth old daughter) stayed at the Oriental Central for four nights last week. The hotel was centrally located and only a short walk to the lake and the main backpacker/bar street. The staff were very friendly and helpful - having recommended and booked a Halong Bay cruise for us when we were still in Australia. Airport transfers were on time etc, and it was nice to have someone waiting at the airport for us. The room itself (a junior suite? or family suite? it was called something like that) was a little on the small side considering there was 3 of us, but if it had just been myself and my husband it would have been fine. It was nicely furnished and clean. They also provided a cot, which was good (and nowhere else in Vietnam we stayed had cots! So this was great). The breakfast the next day was fine too. A pretty good deal for what we paid.

Room Tip: Higher level rooms have less street noise.

Excellent staff, very good breakfast, nice clean rooms, location is very good too.
The hotel is more suitable for holiday traveler than business traveler as it is in the middle of old quarter of Hanoi with all that congested motorbike traffic.
as we are a family of 4 (2 teenaers) we booked 2 rooms and stayed in the 2nd floor (first above the reception) that was very convenient as we didnt need to wait for lift
i definitely recommend this hotel to Hanoi traveler

While the hotel is definitely in a prime old quarter location, with beautiful fresh modern rooms, it was the staff that most impressed me. I had a split 2 night stay between which I visted Sa Pa and Ha Long bay, and not only did the travel advisor and manager explain to me the best way to fit this into my busy Hanoi-based week, but they went above and beyond by storing my extra bags and allowing me to wash up at the hotel between the train and the shuttle. I can't say anything except if you want to stay in Hanoi-stay in the old quarter and this is the only place to stay at!
