        Location, quiet room, comfortable

        I requested an upper floor which faced into the city for a nice view (not the street). The room had wood paneling, tub, big nice bed with comfy sheets... big TV and coffee packets sealed the deal. I got a great deal and with this in account 5 stars out of 5. So there was an expansive, beautiful wood staircase leading up to my room. This I enjoyed but some elderly may require a lift? I do not eat breakfast so cannot comment.

        Clean, great breakfast and friendly staffs

        Overall was great except for weak WIFI at 6th floor room. Some more no elevator so need to walk 6 floors after tired. However, staffs try to change my room to lower floor when the room was available. I think i will stay here again, of course need to make sure to stay at lower floor. Room is clean and big, great breakfast with many selection and staffs is very friendly and attentive.

        Great location behide a cathedral. The small room is not a bad point for me, I can get the thing easy around.

        We are a group of seven persons. We book three rooms of superior rooms type. The room was small without window but we feel comfortable with that. We change one superior room which has two standard beds to be a family room which has 2 king size beds and a big window. The reception told us they provide good rate for agoda customer and gave the best price for the changing. We paid night for the room change. The staff are friendly and have service mind that we like to stay here more than the other hotel we have check in after two nights in this hotel.

        situated at the heart of Old Quarter; very near to the amenities and places of interest

        The hotel is very nice, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. It is located at the Old Quarter; which makes almost all places of interest very accessible including the Night Market and Puppet Theatre. The locals are very nice, warm and friendly. My only comment on the room that we stayed in is that it doesn't have windows. But overall, service, cleanliness and warmth / hospitality coming from the staff is excellent.

        If you want to get treated like a king (or queen!)”

        Everything-The staff are great, the room was amazing.
        Nothing - there were no cons, and nothing i disliked or nothing that can be improbved

        wow this hotel is amazing! from the moment i pulled up outside in the taxi to the moment i left for the airport i was treated excellently. They welcomed us at the taxi carried our luggage to our room and we were given drinks! Tom the manager and his staff were great and couldn't so enough for us. on arrival tom sat down with us and told us what we can do in the area, he suggested a trip to Hanoi bay with Hanoi opera cruise. There were no pushy sales he showed us the brochure and told us to let him know if we decided to go on it. Which we did and it was an unforgettable experience. Once again the Vietnamese give a superb standard to internationals. We were able to leave our luggage at the hotel and take what we wanted. At checkout i got told off for carrying my bags down the stairs - I was told there were strong men that would do that for me; How nice!! every time i entered the hotel i was offered complimentary drinks and was told night or day they would be free! another added bonus when your traveling - the orange juice is great! Breakfast was 5*, The hotel was so clean, our room was massive! The bed was the size of 2 doubles, and we had our own PC and TV with over 60 channels which included Disney! (great for the kids; and adults!) we had a giant balcony which was beautifully decorated with lots of flowers. Great location. Right in the center of everything! I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at the hotel, you have made my trip to Hanoi an unforgettable experience. THANK YOU

        IndoChina Hotel Experience”

        IndoChina Hotel is a nice hotel with very friendly and pleasant staff. The hotel room is spacious and clean.
        You need to take note that there is no elevator in the hotel to bring you to every floors especailly the highest sixth floor.

        The IndoChina Hotel is located in the busiest district in Hanoi. It is next to a very nice old church and surrounded with local food stalls and shops. The hotel is well maintained and with very spacious hotel rooms. The hotel staff are friendly and make you feel at home. The breakfast is not bad and good value for money. If you need to explore Hanoi, just ask the hotel staff for help and direction. I have a pleasant experience staying in the hotel.

        Staff service was good, they were very enthusiastic and helpful with my request. The room was clean, well equiped and convenient. Actually I booked another hotel for my first 2 days, but was not very happy, and then I moved to this hotel which I believed a right decision. The hotel location is super good for me, close to the big Church, the Lake, the pagoda and surrounded with many foods options. The buffet breakfast was also good to my taste. Will definitely come back for my next trip to Hanoi.

        Value for Money. But could be cleaner. hotel is a bit older hence the furnishing is a little old and cleanliness is not as clean and new. aim to stay at higher floors rather than lower floors if you dont mind trading a little cleanliness for the value for money.

        Near Hospital...

        There are only 2 things I am ok with... 1 is the fact that it is right across a hospital and 2. the staff are friendly. I hate the owner / Manager of this place. He is rude and tried to rip me off. Basically i had to extend my stay for an additional of 4 hours and I was told i had to pay 300,000 dong. But when i was checking out he told me he had made a mistake an i had to pay 1,000,000 dong. Money is not the issue here. i mean people make mistakes... although i think he should have been responsible for his mistake but! he was very rude. He almost looked like he was trying to rob me. Then another guest walked by and over heard our fight and soon after he got into the same position as i did. This place is simply horrible and i strong advise everyone to stay away. Why? Because vietnam is a place where most people incl the police don't speak english and tourist are at a bigger disadvantage compared to Thailand or Malaysia.

        budget simple room”

        Good location. Safe environment. Polite staff

        Stayed 3 nights. 1st night was at the new extension with lift. Rest of the night were given rooms at higher floor in the old wing of the hotel with no lift Room was simple but toilet was very cramp. Toiletries provided is not adequate and it is better to bring your own towel. Breakfast is simple with French loves, egg, fruits and cake . Hotel location is great as it is about 10 mins walk to the lake and old quarter. Famous pho 10 shop and Cathedral church are just a stone throw away. Weekend market at Hang Dao is crowded and interesting but not worth paying for the stuff they sell because you can get better quality at the same price in the shop with good bargaining skill. As we here during the winter season most shops sell winter clothing and stuff bearing the brand of North Face. These are cheaper but quality also matter. Halong bay cruise with overnight stay is a must in Hanoi. It is a 3 to 4 hours drive away. Tour package come with kayaking ,visit to limestone cave and fliating village. e ou can leave your luggage with the hotel while you are away for the cruise and I must agree that the hotel staff ensure your luggage was properly tagged and safe guarded. Sapa is beautiful but trekking for many hours are for the strong and fit. We tried Hao Lu Tam Coa . A 2 n half hours drive away. You were be sitting in a boat paddled either by hands or feet through a river with nice scenery but is better to come here before your Halong bay. Tips of 40,000 dong or US $2 are expected from tourists at the end of your boat ride. If you are tired of Vietnamese food, you can have a good western meal at gecko restaurant at Hang Bong. Prices though comparatively more expensive than local food but reasonable from where I am from.

        We stayed for 3 nights. After our return from Halong bay we will given a double room in the old sector of the hotel with no lift. Breakfast is simple with 3 slices of french loaves with egg for those who order English breakfast. Not much choices. Check out was early at 12pm sharp. Counter receptionist speak and understand English. Those who want a taste of local snack like puff, prawn fritter there were stall open by evening along Ly Quou Su.
