Stayed here for 2 nights whilst touring round Hanoi. I think it must be the nicely and comfort hotel. Set in Old Street Quater - about 10/15 mins walk from the main restaurant & bars and shopping center. Very elegant hotel. Good rooms with everything you would need. The friendly staff with great service that makes me satisfied about this hotel.
It's Good to come to this City and stay around friendly people. That's great memories.

I came to Hanoi after few days in South Vietnam. Hanoi in December is cold, that kind of cold is different with my country. But, this was supprised me in the cold winter is gone when i come to stayed in Duc Thai Hotel. Like understand the weather can make the guest like me feel not good after the long trip from the South Vietnam, the staff of the hotel made me feel much comfortable like i was staying in my home, warm and friendly. The hotel is quiet good and very close location to the center. The price is not high, very suitable with me.
So, i recommend you stay here.

Duc Thai hotel was the only thing we've reserved before going to Vietnam. The only thing we had asked for had been a clean and quiet room. The room was not ready when we arrived (9 AM), but Tom immediatly gave us another room that we have used for a good nap. The Duc Thai is in the center of the 36 streets quarter, so nothing to say about his localization.

During our 15 days in Vietnam and our 3 stays in Hanoi, we've tested 4 rooms : all were clean and like quiet (all they need to fix this is real double glazing). The breakfast is good, even if the hotel crew members sometimes tend to recreate a storm with the breakfast room (also Internet room) fans.

So the hotel by itself is rather good. But if you take into account the service, it is well worth a luxury hotel. We've asked for a boat trip in the Halong Bay : the boat was perfect, the trip too, even if the Cat Ba Island hotel was really catastrophic (like a russian communism ghost house).

We've asked for a package (including private car - guesthouse - boat trip - lunch) in the Ba Be Lake : perfect
We've asked for a luxury hotel in Hoi An : perfect
We've asked for a massage in Hanoi : wonderfull and cheap

We went to Vietnam in May 2010 and stayed in 4 hotels in different locations throughout the country. In that regard, the Duc Thai is easily the best experience we had.

The hotel looks like just any other one around the old quarter in that price range ($25). Interior is ok, nothing fancy. Rooms are clean, bathtubs in everyone of them, AC + fans. Breakfast is included, and there are 2 PCs with free Internet at the clients' disposal.

What really got us coming back as we went around was the staff. The Vietnamese are extremely nice and welcoming people, and well, the ones working in this hotel aren't going to become an exception soon... and they are so accommodating! We were given more than useful info during our stay, and they even let us have free showers and breakfast twice in between trips outside from Hanoi, although we hadn't booked anything with them. And there was simply no way they would let us pay for the service...
We had some real nice chats with the guys, and I even had 2 of them sing "Happy Birthday" to my sister in front of the camera!...

If no one gave you any input for a nice place to stay in Hanoi, go for this one.

I must be the only one I do not think the Duc Thai as they like to call it, is a modern boutique hotel my bathroom room was years old with the shower curtain held up with bits of wire, Tom who is part of the ownership of this hotel is very good and helpful, but as for the buffet breakfast they batch cook rock hard fried eggs and just leave them in a heated tray, we did that back in the sixties in the UK not a small hotel claiming to be a modern boutique hotel, they had the staff there how hard is it to fry fresh eggs when guests want them, all my other hotels on my months holiday did, and at $25 (the most expensive on my holiday) a night even with pick up from airport it is at the top end of budget hotels in Hanoi, I was going to stay 3 nights 1 was enough, when I came back from Halong Bay I moved to a hotel for $12 a night room only and it was a lot more modern.
