    The staff were fantastic, very professional and friendly. Rooms were clean and well serviced. Nice walking distance to the Night Market area and restaurants. Good location in Old Quarters district. We also used the spa service and the cafe. Didn’t have time to the use the pool or gym but were impressed by the quality of gym equipment.

    What is the best in this hotel is how the staff treats its guests! I travel a lot in Europe and stay very often in Hotels, I would say this hotel is as good as a 5-star luxury hotel in terms of service. Super quality/ price ratio! Can only recommend it

    Decent hotel. But i stayed two more hotels in hanoi and those hotels were way more better than this. And when i went to the massage i paid by cash and they didnt have enough change. I was surprised that they just said its only 1000vnd so is it okay to get less change. I know its really small money but their attitude like that was quite disappointed. And there is no roof top bar like in the picture.

    The room is very nice and clean, got everything we need, the curtains for the bathroom can be controlled with remote, nice extra feature, got everything you'd need in a hotel room, very comfy bed. The staffs are helpful and sweet, great great service, needed help with printing a few documents, got it done at the front desk. Location is great too, about 5 minutes walk to the Lake. All and all very pleasant experience, would highly recommend it to anyone. Steven

    Hotel is really good, very clean and has an excellent breakfast. Staff was great, always smiling and willing to help with anything. The only thing i would say that it needs to be more communication, plus hotel needs to conferm that they sell rooms without the windows and don't upgrade for free.

    The place to stay when in Hanoi, Vietnam!”

    This hotel is phenomenal! The staff go above and beyond and are very attentive to the needs of their guests. They are very detailed and thorough as well as courteous and very professional. They ensure comfort and enjoyment as well as convenience for their guests. The breakfast males were fantastic. They had a fine selection and the wait staff were very friendly and attentive to the customers needs and preferences. The restaurant where the breakfast was held was at the top floor and had a beautiful view of the city. As I said, when in Hanoi stay at the Light Hotel!

    Nice hotel, but with issues”

    The hotel was clean and the staff were helpful and lovely. The location was exactly where you need to be to see the city, but most of the sights close before 11am every morning. The breakfast was delicious and the food all fresh. There was construction in the room next to us from 7am to 7pm every day (hammering and drills) We ordered the airport shuttle and clearly stated we wanted to go to the domestic terminal, but were dropped off at the international terminal. We were very lucky we left early enough so that didn’t impact our flight. Make sure you check if your room has a window as some come without them.

    Overall 4 Days Stay at The Light Hotel (8 days vacation)”

    Well received by hotel staff at reception upon check-in. In total, 3 times of check-in & each time with welcome drinks "luo han guo" flavour & wet cold towel. Free upgrade to deluxe room for 1 of the night upon request made to manager; Last night of stay, room size though relative small but still manageable; not noisy though is located along passage way & main door is facing one of the elevator lift. Hotel toiletries well equipped. Flowers in vase placed in our room on 3rd day of stay. So lovely after our Tam Coc trip. Breakfast meals are awesome & very little much to worry about. Food and beverages are fantastic. Definitely exceeded my expectations. Coffee in the cafeteria are great & also given a packet of coffee and filter too.. Really warming. Staff are friendly & approachable. English speaking. To consider facilities for disabled person egs; Wheelchair needs or lift get up to Floor 11 . Packed breakfast can be improved :)... overall 4/5 rating; Recommended!

    Newer Hotel & Very Clean”

    We only stayed 1 night at The Light Hotel. It’s about 11 minutes walk to the Lake & Weekend Night Market. The room is very clean. The only thing that we don’t like is the room we in only have only 2 small windows at each end of the room. Other than that we very happy with it. The swimming is small and it’s heated. It’s trally nice especially not many guest use it.

    The staff was top notch during our stay. Helped with everything we need. Hospitality that was second to none. The location was also great, near everything, longest walk to what we wanted to do was just 18 minutes away. Otherwise, everything was between 5-15 minutes walking. Breakfast was pretty good, everything we needed to start our day. Huge thank you to the staff, though. Great job!

    Family of 4 with 2 children 13 and 11 we booked 2 rooms and they put us on different levels not sure why but we made it work the rooms are very small but nice and clean and comfortable it was our first time in Hanoi so not sure if all hotels are like this We booked this hotel because it was one of the only hotels in Hanoi we could find with a swimming pool . The pool it’s self was great just a little small but lucky enough the few times we had a swim no one was there so it worked out great for us. The breakfast was really good we expected a small choice for a small hotel but it was great lots to choose from and nice food. The staff were very attentive and we had a early flight in the morning and even packed us all a breakfast bag to take with us. If staying in Hanoi again we will stay here again very happy

    Without a doubt there was no complaints at The Light Hotel, Hanoi. From the moment of arrival with an attentive doorman, to the reception, the panoramic restaurant on the top floor, this hotel is an icon of efficiency, charming, smiling staff which made for a very happy three night stay. The rooftop swimming pool at 28 degrees was a great bonus after heavy days of sightseeing, The location near the lake is central and many of the places to visit are in walking distance. Special thanks to the assistant manager, Luca who helped sort out a problem for us. Nothing was too much trouble. A memorable stay.

    Staff is very attentive, helpful, excellent customer service over all. Room was a bit small but very clean ( the one we had with a small window but can’t see the sunlight at all). However, Lucas, the manager offered us the first two nights in a suite room with balcony which was beautiful and we loved it! Thanks Lucas! Location was great, restaurants and eatery were within walking distance. Breakfast had enough varieties and Pho is quite good. We also got a complimentary ride to the airport from The Light Hotel . Thanks again Lucas for arranging this. Just a small note to the driver that constant texting when driving making your guests feel very unsafe.

    100% Incredible. ”

    The staff really try their best to make you feel welcomed and comfortable! No task was to small or difficult for them to try and assist with. We stayed for two weeks which I think is longer then most passing through the hotel and the staff made us feel like we had lived there forever remembering our names and what we liked asking about trips we had done and what we got up to during the day. Wasn’t very impressed with Agoda when we had a mix up with the booking but that was in no way down to the hotel. The hotel was mostly peaceful and relaxing although some noise from building but if you’ve seen Hanoi you can’t throw a stone with some sort of construction happening!! Very central and easy to walk to all areas with the beautiful temperate rooftop pool to unwind and relax after a lot of exploring. Thankyou a million times to the staff! We wish you all the best and Would highly recommend and hopefully can return Sometime!
