Best hotel ever

Staff, room comfort, location
This hotel is nothing short of outstanding and one if the best we have stayed in throughout all of Vietnam and SE Asia. Lovely room, complimentary water and snacks each day made this a good respite from the frenzy of Hanoi. The location couldn't be better right in the heart of the old quarter. The staff is the most amazing we have ever encountered and will go out of their way to accommodate any request or to arrange a tour or transportso that you will be sure to enjoy your Hanoi stay. The breakfast includes a choice of made to order items as well as a buffet that includes fresh fruits, pastries, yougurt and a range of Vietnamese and western items- and of course Vietnamese coffee iced or hot! We would definitely stay here again. Having been in hanoi before we were a little lukewarm towards the city. Our stay at the Oriental Central chafed our minds. We wish we could have stayed longer in this marvelous hotel.

Excellent friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms

Customer service, location and nice rooms
I fell sick during my trip, and Linda from hotel sent food up to my room, extended our check out timing so I could rest more and even gave us some coffee powder to bring home as a souvenir! The hotel is located within the old quarter, very convenient to explore cafes and shops. Very nice and clean rooms, will definitely recommend friends and family to this hotel!

Exemplary Staff and Comfortable Hotel

Focus on the guest, comfortable rooms, advice about where to eat and available tours.
This is a great hotel with a good location within the old city. When we arrived hot and tired, we were shown to the dining room where we were given a passion fruit smoothie before being shown to a room where we could have a shower as our rooms were not ready until later. Nothing was any trouble to the Staff including collecting our daughter from the airport well after midnight due to her plane being delayed over 3 hours. All Staff willingly gave us suggestions for lunch and dinner and also tours that we planned to go on. We really enjoyed our stay here especially with the friendliness of the Staff and the attitude that "nothing is any trouble."
