Loved this hotel!

The staff- welcoming, helpful and informative. The location was central. The hotel was clean and had everything we needed during our stay.
It was by far our favourite hotel experience due to the friendliness and helpfulness of staff. Everything we needed was available or made available and lots of local information was provided. The location was good and staff provided us with a local map of the area highlighting the sites and restaurants that were recommended. The hotel itself had everything we needed and the room was clean with complementary fruit and water, fridge, tv, hairdryer etc.

Above and Beyond

The staff, the location, the breakfast
I stayed at the Oriental Central in Hanoi with my boyfriend, grandmother, my cousin and her partner. Throughout our three night stay at the Oriental Central Hotel we were continually pleasantly surprised by the high quality hospitality. From greeting us in the rain at our taxi door armed with umbrellas to telephoning our room on our last evening to ensure we had factored in sufficient time for the return journey from hotel to airport, the hotel staff did everything within their power to ensure that we had everything we needed. Choice of accommodation in Hanoi is severely limited compared to other touristic hotspots in Vietnam and so the Oriental Central was a hugely pleasant surprise. We will be returning when more family visit next year.

Great staff

Extremely helpful staff. Decent sized rooms. Location.
I was with my two teenage daughters and son. When we arrived, there was a problem with the rain knocking out some of the electrics. The lovely staff immediately transferred/upgraded us to their sister hotel, The Oriental Suites. The girls stayed in their own twin room, my son and I in another. The girls on reception were extremely helpful, friendly and bright. Their English was good too – which helps a lot because even after three years in Ho Chi Minh City, my Vietnamese is still terrible! The Hotel Manager booked us a lovely excursion to Chua Huong – The Perfume Pagoda. Rain marred our days there (we couldn't go to Ha Long Bay because the water level was so high) but it didn't matter. Hanoi is beautiful. My children had clothes made, we ate the finest steak ever in El Gaucho and The National Museum was worth the visit. The Water Puppet Show on Hoan Kiem Lake was magical. All of these were suggested to us by the Hotel staff. A massive thank you to them for making our time in Hanoi so memorable.

Exceptionally helpful staff

The staff went out of their way to be helpful. They booked activities and tours for us. The room was very nicely decorated and had complimentary fruit and snacks.
We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located right in the heart of the old quarter which is lively and characterful. The water puppet show, lake and some very nice restaurants are nearby.
