One of the best hotel ever
Booked this hotel based on other travellers' recommendation. I don't care how many stars this hotel is but the hotel staff definitely provided a 5 stars service. My family is happy and enjoy the stay. We will sure recommend it to other who are going to visit hanoi. Hope the staff keep their good work. Well done..

Splendid customer service
I've not been to a hotel with such splendid customer service. They serve all customers equally and with utmost concern and care right to the moment we leave. They will send their men to accompany us to exchange money around the street corner for better rates and also see us to our car when we were about to leave for airport (but pick up by another hotel's arrangement, prior in staying with them). They even offer to call our driver on behalf and gave us each a coffee to bring home. What I like about the hotel is the quiet and quality sleep in their bedrooms. The beds are good and not to mention their complimentary snacks, fruits and drinks by the table everyday. No other hotels would give more other than 2 bottled of mineral water, but Oriental Central Hotel really goes out of the way to make their customers feel great, from the moment we enter/stay. Too bad we only stay for a night but I'll definitely be back and have recommended this hotel to our friends and colleagues. Keep it up guys!

Beautiful hotel in perfect condition & Amazing staff
This very beautiful hotel is located in a lively street of the Old quarter. It is closed to the night market and many shops, restaurants and bars. The hotel is recent and is very well maintained. The rooms are decorated with good taste. While they are not very spacious - you are in a traditional house - they are very comfortable and stufficient. What really makes the difference in this hotel is the staff. The quality of the service is very high, at least equal to what you would get in 4* hotel. They offer a turndown service and will do everything they can to meet your needs. I would say that the only weakness is the absence of a swimming pool. To sum up, I had an excellent stay at Oriental Central Hotel and can only recommend it to you!

Amazing time with detail oriented staff
We were pleasantly surprised to get a free upgrade to the rooms. The location is great (just on Hang Bac street) and walkable to many places. The staff are well equipped with tips and speak excellent English. Mary recommended us to great places for coffee, food and shopping. Although you can't compare their facilities or decor or rooms to an international 5 star hotel, their service makes up for it. Definitely not to be missed.

Haven of politness and order in the madness of Hanoi.
We stayed twice due with a 4 day trip to Sa Pa in between. The train departure time was 9.40pm and the return time was 4.45am. The staff were extremely helpful in letting us use a room for a couple of hours to shower and rest in, both on departure and arrival. ALL the staff were helpful and polite. The hotel was conveniently placed in the Old Quarter and the rooms and bathrooms were comfortable and clean. We would stay there again for sure.
