A great place at a great price”

this was my first time staying at the Golden Lotus. It was recommended to me by a good friend. The Golden Lotus is situated about a block from the Cathedral and about a 10-minute walk from Hoan Kiem. Lots of restaurants and street food vendors nearby. The rooms are very clean and wonderfully appointed. I felt like I was staying in someone's personal bedroom: very cozy. The rooms are also very quiet. New bathrooms including a bathtub, if you want to have a soak. The staff are friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay there again. It's my new favorite Hanoi hotel.

Beautiful hotel with a great location”

lovely, spacious room & decor / friendly, helpful staff / great location near the Lake / free Internet (2 laptops)

i stayed at the golden lotus ii for the final night of my travels to southeast asia and picked it for its location in hanoi - i was not disappointed in that it was about a 5 minute walk from the beautiful lake hoan kiem lake. as a single female traveler, i felt safe walking around the lake and neighborhood that evening, enjoying the beautiful decorations for tet new year (taking place soon). the decor in my room was just beautiful and was a lovely farewell to asia.

City hotel with comfortable, clean rooms.”

Friendly and efficient staff, cleanliness and close to shops

Golden Lotus Hotel was a pleasant hotel as the staff were very attentive and efficient. The hotel was clean and comfortable. It was, however, difficult to really enjoy the room as whilst it ha d a window, it was completely covered by blackout curtains so there was no natural light. The hotel was very close to Hoan Kiem Lake so it was easy to stroll out and shop. A problem with the hotel was that it is actually one of two establishments so to eat breakfast you actually had to leave the hotel, walk out onto the street and enter another hotel a few doors down. Whilst this was not a major problem it was a minor annoyance. The car the hotel provides to take you to the airport is very comfortable and the driver is really safe.

Fantastic hotel, centrally located”

The location was great as we could easily walk to a lot of restaurants, shops, historic buildings. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to assist us in every way.

This was a great hotel and we enjoyed our stay here very much. The rooms were large and decorated in the vietnamese style with beautiful wooden cupboards. The staff were very friendly and courteous and made us feel very welcome. This hotel has a sister hotel 4 doors down the street called the Golden Lotus Luxury Hotel. We were invited to go and have breakfast at either hotel so some days we ate at our hotel and some days we ate at the other one. The Golden Lotus Luxury Hotel is much newer than the Golden Lotus Hotel and has a modern decor with smaller rooms. When we arrived we were told we could stay at either hotel but decided to stay at the older Golden Lotus Hotel because the rooms were larger and had a lot more character.

small, very clean, extremely friendly hotel, and breakfast selection was as big as many much larger hotels. the rooms were very nicely furnished but small as expected from this type of hotel in hanoi. the view from the bar at the top of the hotel was great. it was very handy to hoan kiem lake for a welcome break from the hustle of the old market area when needed. highly recommended

Staff, cleanliness and comfort

A little oasis amongst the hustle, bustle and heat of Ha Noi. Comfortable, clean and well equipped rooms and ideally priced offering excellent value for money. Above all the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and went the extra mile to accommodate us - look out for Linda on the reception - she's a little gem! Will definitely recommend the Golden Lotus to friends and stay there again if we visit in the future. Our stay will always be extra special as our son proposed to his girlfriend on one of your balconies and she said 'yes'!!!

Stayed here as a one off”

We were staying down the road in a much cheaper hotel (which was excellent by the way) and unfortunately the building in front had collapsed and the emergency services were called. This resulted in all the electricity of the street being turned off and the entrance being controlled to emergency personnel so we had to vacate. We thought we would treat ourselves and stayed at the Golden Lotus which was 3 times the price but it was only for one night. The bed was divine. It was a fantastic nights sleep. However the room was rather small and cramped, which isn't usually a problem for us. Our main observation was that the staff were uninterested and a little dismissive. At breakfast there was a small buffet but it seemed if you wanted anything cooked like eggs you had to go in to the kitchen and ask, even though there was a lady on breakfast duty, she didn't offer or explain anything. Overall I feel it was a let down given the price you pay. But I guess this kind of hotel isn't really for us.

OK Hotel - but there are lot like it in Hanoi ”

Very nice decor & excellent location

Unfortunately we were sick the first day arriving at this hotel (nothing to do with the hotel), not being able to leave our room intially we found that alot of the minibar food and soft drinks had passed their 'best before' date. Thank god for the satelite TV that day! Not uncommon for Hanoi hotels, our room did not have a window, but it was nicely decorated and very clean. Breakfast was the usual mix of limited international buffet, and all very nice. The main benefit of this hotel was it's location - within a minutes walk to the lake, and within a nice district. NB DO NOT eat at the place on the lake - its terrible food, expensive and no one could understand us or wanted to serve us! The problem with reviewing is that you haven't experienced the other hotels, but looking around Hanoi there seemed to be a lot of similar hotels. We were happy with the price we paid for what we got - a clean, well located hotel with decent breakfast.

Really good location in old quarter”

Clean and friendly staff

We originally had book at Boss hotel, which is located on the East side of Hoan Kiem Lake. While Boss hotel was adequate, we seemed to always be walking over to the west side of the lake. As our stay in Hanoi was extended because we cancelled Sapa (due to sickness) the change to this hotel was welcome. The staff were professional and the rooms were clean. I'd say at the same price and better location, that this hotel pips Boss hotel. Style of the rooms was oriental, as the name suggests. Breakfast was adequate,although I wretched when I tried the coffee, which was stone cold, and didn't seem fresh. Maybe a one off oversight on the hotels behalf. Other than that, all else good.

Windowless room, thin walls, great service”

Good location in French quarter, very responsive service, nice breakfast included in price

We stayed in interior room (meaning no windows) on 2nd floor. Like a cave. There was 1 "window" that opened up to an interior shaft, where it appeared that water pipes were located. Due to lack of circulation in this room, you needed to open the shaft window & the room door to cool down the room. Consequently, we could hear all noise/conversations & toilet flushing from every other room that also opened up to this utility shaft. Other higher floor room may have been better, but don't know. NOTE: there are 2 Glden Lotus hotels on the same street. The other is about 5 doors down. They are related. We stayed at the other Golden Lotus for 4 nights, significantly more upscale, probably more expensive. Staff is shared, so same great service at both.

Room cleanliness and the attitude of the staff was first class. most enjoyable I will stay there again.

Hotels in this area are quite similar with great proximity of the old quarter (shopping/restaurants). Golden Lotus is good value for money. Facilities (breakfast/swimming pool) are shared with the other Godlen Lotus hotel next door, so we would recommend staying there instead for the facilities. Breakfast is not very special and rather limited (fruits for example). All in all a good hotel for the money, be carefull not to choose a room without a view if you want to see daylight!

i can not sing enough praises for this hotel. we used hanoi as our main city for bouncing around vietnam, laos and cambodia. so we were in hanoi for a day here or there for about 5 weeks. we developed a very nice relationship with the staff. just shot them an email and our flight info and they'd arrange a taxi to pick us up at the airport for cheaper than the airport cabs charge. we had the book flights, help us with a passport issue and they were incredibly helpful in every situation. again, book here and you'll get a great room with a seemingly personal staff as a perk

We were in a shoebox”

Location, decor in the room

I have stayed at the Golden Lotus before and liked the feel of their rooms, which is why I booked it this time around as well. But my husband and I were disappointed. First of all, the staff in the front desk was not very helpful; we carried our own bags up the stairs from the taxi. Compared to the other hotels where we stayed throughout our vacation in Vietnam, not very friendly, except for the two ladies at breakfast, who were very kind, energetic, and pleasant. Now the room. MINISCULE. We had no windows (or there was a window type thing, but it faced a shaft, so no natural light whatsoever. The cupboard opens onto the bed. There was no space for a night table, so I had to leave my eye glasses on the floor beside the bed. No place to charge your phone and keep it (also ended up on the floor). We kept a water bottle for the night on the rim of the bed frame... it was ridiculous. I think the Golden Lotus is fine if you can get a decent (i.e., normal) size room, but if you are unlucky and get what we got, then you might be disappointed. I couldn't wait to get out... If you have two suitcases (as two people normally would), good luck being able to not step on them as you try to move from the bed to the bathroom. On the other hand, they have upgraded their bathrooms so the equipment there is new. I will not stay here when I go to Hanoi as we paid the same price and got a much bigger, airier room at another hotel just a few streets down, also in the Old Quarter.
