Reviewed 8 September 2013

the staff here were extremely helpful and cheerful. good location.
and none of that forcing tours and extras down your throat. but there were plenty of tours and guidance on offer if you wanted it.
i booked my Halong bay tour through them and it was perfect.
rooms were comfortable, big tv and heaps of hot water.
if im back in Hanoi i would not hesitate comin back and chillin with the staff here again.

We weren't even planning to stay at this hotel - just went in to book bus tickets, but the staff were so helpful and so friendly - letting us leave our bags and have showers, showing us sights to see in Ha Noi, really cannot recommend their hotel more. On our return from Ha Long Bay we stayed here because of the friendly reception the first time and we were not disappointed. $15 for a clean and well furnished room in the centre of the Old Quarter, can't do much better than that.

the hanoi star hotel is within the old quarter section of hanoi, so it is convieniently positioned to the many shops, restaurants, markets, bars, etc. (a 5 minute walk to hoen kiem lake, too). safe, clean, and attractive hotel. family, single or group rooms from $20- $40. elevator. cozy lobby area (with wi-fi). friendly, helpful english speaking management and staff. tour guide and reservation service. as a frequent visitor to hanoi, i personally appreciate knowing of this hotel, and the wonderful staff. thank you.

Room Tip: just tell the staff your needs and they will make certain of your satisfaction.

We stayed at Hanoi Stars for one night. We had a huge room with a balcony just for the two of us, against a very fair price. The room itself had everything we needed: aircon, television and even a fridge. Further, the shower was very good!

About the staff; we were very lucky that Quynh was on duty. She is one of the most helpful and friedliest people we met on our three-month trip throughout South East Asia! We asked her over a hundred questions which she all answered with the same level of interest, sincerety and kindness. Hence, we definitely recommend other travellers to staying here (especially if you're full of questions about Hanoi and Vietnam)

Location was very good; short walk to Hoan Kiem Lake and shops, restaurants nearby. Rooms were ok, airconditiong worked very well. Beds were quite hard to sleep on, but this was a common thing all around Vietnam. Breakfast was ok and served when needed.
There was two staff members in our time, other one spoke excellent English, the other one not so much and it was sometimes difficult to explain what we need or want, although both were very kind and nice. We got lots of help and advices about staying in Hanoi (taxis, trips, maps, restaurant tips etc), I think the staff is trustworthy. This hotel is a good, reliable choice for your stay in Hanoi :)

I enjoyed my stay at the Hanoi Star. There is a very helpful staff and clean accommodations with all the necessary amenities. Free wi-fi and included breakfast make this place a great deal for the price. It is near many exciting attractions in Hoan Kiem. They can also organize tours and recommend many excellent restaurants nearby. I would love to visit Hanoi and the Hanoi Star again soon.
