Super friendly staff, very nice rooms, especially the bathrooms, and great breakfast (eastern and western)! They made us feel just like home! (you don't need a window, it's noisy and smelly outside anyway)

The hotel is conveniently located right in the heart of old Hanoi. The staff was very gracious. And our room was absolutely clean and beautiful. Leo at the front desk gave us great advice on how to spot counterfeit jackets while shopping. They arranged transportation to the airport (nice private car). Since it was an early flight, they opened up...

If you want to go upscale with still being affordable, this is the pace. The level of service far outpaces the ratings. The property is clean and relatively simple. You can walk to all major Hanoi attractions from here if you plan on walking. Breakfast is unbeatable, made to order eggs each morning or a more traditional Vietnamese breakfast is...

The staff is so amazingly welcoming here! They made sure our stay was comfortable and the rooms are really well maintained with nothing reflecting the outside hustle bustle of Hanoi. Small gestures of packing breakfast for our 5 am flight and buying us tickets for local activities go a long way. We left with a souvenir gift of a local...

In general, Hanoi is known for it's boutique hotels scattered around the many prime tourist areas. They do have large chain hotels as well but if you are visiting Hanoi, stay at one of the local run boutique hotel. They are surprisingly good. But be wary, some are old, dirty, full of bugs and poor services. Best is to read...

We stayed at Oriental Central only for a night. The room was comfortable and well furnished. The staff, especially the manager - Ms. Mary - paid special attention to us, giving us directions, arranging premium seats at the Thang Long puppet show at short notice, guiding us on vegetarian restaurants for dinner etc. The hotel is located in the old...

I had a great experience here. The Junior Suite / City View rooms on the front of the building are quite lovely. Mary, the general manager was an absolute delight. I had a medical issue during my stay and she helped me get to a local hospital and made sure I was well taken care of. She went well above...

What a lovely little gem in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the old quarter. Amazingly friendly staff and great ambience. Rooms clean and beds comfy. Breakfast very good for a 3/4 star hotel. Would definitely go again.
