You step off the busy streets of Hanoi into this little oasis. The staff couldn't be more welcoming and warm, and the rooms had everything you needed. We especially recommend the Penthouse Suite! The breakfasts were excellent as well. The front desk helped us with everything we needed including recommendations and transportation.

Stayed 3 nights in the penthouse, lovely hotel in the old quarter close by the lake, easy to walk around directly from the hotel, rooms spacious and well decorated, really nothing to fault. What makes the hotel outstanding is the service - offering helpful tips to get around, rechecking for us our connecting tours to halong bay and phu loung,...

I chose this hotel while traveling with my sister without knowing anything about Hanoi or where to stay. There are dozens of similar priced and rated hotels nearby. To be honest, we chose this one because the photo of the lobby entrance looked a little like Soho and stood apart from the faux elegance of the McMansions advertised alongside it....

The E Central in Hanoi is a great hotel with exceptional service, and excellent value for the price. The knowledgable and kind staff are really what make the hotel so special. We asked the hotel to arrange pick-up at the airport for us, which was smooth and worth the additional cost for the convenience. Our room was clean and bright,...

2 nights in Central Hotel in Hanoi with our 3 children. We received an exceptionnal attention from the staff, just sincere and not commercial, always helpfull. The breakfast is fabulous. After a warm welcome the first day, they even surprised us the last day. This stay was clearly the best from our 6 hotels in Vietnam.

We had such an amazing stay at Hanoi E Central. The staff was so extremely friendly and helpful. They went far and beyond to make us feel welcome, and remembered us each time we came back from an overnight excursion. We were celebrating our honeymoon and they decorated our room and gave us some dessert and wine. The breakfast was...
