“Gem !”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

It's amazing this place exists in the crazy streets of Hanoi. This hotel brings your bags to your room, has an elevator, and even throws the little rose petals on the bed. We left for dinner and came back to chocolates on the bed. They have complementary snacks in the room as well. The staff runs to get the door every time you leave/enter the hotel. The rooms are as clean as can be. It you're into modern rooms, they had brand new flat screen TV's as well. We stayed at other hotels in town as well and they have nothing on this place. The shower/bathroom was nicest of the entire trip and nothing I would ever except to see in Vietnam. Bravo ! Oh and free breakfast, no- I mean they make you custom made to order breakfast. What ever you want. !

Room Tip: Here is my tip. More about the hotel, if you've stayed in (cheap as you find) run down hostels...

We were here for 2 nights the first week of August and the hotel is really great! Room was big and clean, services and food were great and people always ready to help and provide tips on how to get the most out of your stay in Hanoi. The position in the middle of Old Quarter is also strategic to reach the beauties of the city without wasting time! Super recommended for anyone staying in Hanoi! Last but not least Brian, the customer manger, is so sweet and nice and if you're a football fan just stop and chat with him for 5 minutes! his deep knowledge will impress you! (he even knew the name of AC Fiorentina stadium!!)

Breakfast was included with a more than acceptable selection. omelet made to order. Staff were extremely helpful with arranging services. Very happy with this hotel & would recommend.

This very reasonably priced hotel was a great find! Henrry made us very welcome, provided us with a drink and wet cloths on arrival and then patiently went through a map of the local area. The rooms were spacious, welcoming and air conditioned. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful, Brian assisting with attraction bookings, taxis and our planned trip to Halong Bay. You can step out of the door and you are in the hub of the Old Quarter but once inside it is quiet and peaceful! The breakfast was delicious and they even put a breakfast together for our teenagers who couldn't manage the wake up! Many thanks to all of the staff - a job well done.

Room Tip: Top floor at the back - we did t have a window but that helped with sound proofing!

Should I go to Hanoi again, there's where I'm going to stay. Good location, wonderful staff, good food for breakfast, good service. I really enjoyed being there although for very short time.
The staff is very friendly and ready to help you with anything.

We stayed here in January 2014 when it just opened. We expected teething problems but was pleasantly surprised that there were few. The only big problem we had was the loud noise from housekeeping and staff early in the morning, but understandably, we were near the top floor and assumed our room was close to staff quarters (or something like that). The breakfast buffet spread was delicious but could be improved on in terms of variety.

Constructive criticisms aside, we loved the hotel. The staff were wonderfully friendly and made us feel absolutely welcomed. They were knowledgeable and extremely helpful when we needed them to be. Check-in and out process was a breeze. More importantly, the hotel is situated in a great location. Just a few minutes walk away from the lovely lake, the pub street and close to shopping and other amenities.

We would definitely want to come back here if we're in Hanoi again.
(Also, many thanks to the great staff at Oriental Central! You guys are great!)

From the moment I contacted the hotel, they've been prompt, helpful and well organised. I booked one of their packages and added a few extra nights for myself and two friends, and the staff, especially Annie (who was my main contact via email before my arrival and once again at the hotel), did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable, to the point of even packing a take-away breakfast for our drive to Ha Long Bay as I couldn't make breakfast that morning. Despite some of our other experiences in Vietnam, all the staff either spoke very good English, or enough to get your message across. The breakfast was very tasty each morning (the shiitake mushrooms wrapped in beef was a favourite of our group) and they always stayed open just the little bit longer then their hours suggested to make sure all guests enjoyed a sleep-in. This hotel was recommended to me by a friend and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone staying in Ha Noi!
