Reviewed 6 March 2013 via mobile

I stayed for 5 nights at Koto Hotel, based on good TA reviews, and was very glad I did. Located down a quiet alley just off the -perfectly central -madness of Hang Bong St, it's a homely little refuge from the city when you need it, while still right in the heart of the action. Rooms are clean, safe, comfortable and attractive -a steal for the price.

And the staff here are terrific - friendly, keen, knowledgable, and always quick to help whenever asked. They're never overbearing or pushy, with good English and very kind considerate. Staying here really improved my visit to Hanoi. Thank you Koto!

We were very impressed by Koto Hotel. The staff were very nice and happily accommodated any of our requests. Watch out for the evening guy - he might bowl you over with his enthusiasm, but he did give us a great recommendation for dinner. The girl who works on reception during the day is absolutely lovely and very very kind.
Koto is located a short walk from the lake and the centre of town, near the night market and shopping/sightseeing areas, which is ideal in Hanoi.
One minor note is that I would possibly recommend shopping around for tour/bus deals rather than booking with Koto as I think they don't have the cheapest prices going around. Certainly a very minor issue though.
We were very happy with Koto Hotel and think it is excellent value.

Room Tip: Room 101, right behind reception is a bit loud, and you can hear the phone ring at night. We moved...

Arriving early in the morning off the night train we were very kindly offered a room to crash in as someone had checked out early. they warned it hadnt been cleaned but offered us to sleep for a couple of hours and theyd clean it after. That gesture was much appreciated after the journey.

The brekkie over the road at Bodega their sister hotel was ok but it was free. The staff there were so helpful with everything from laundry to doctors!! the only negative thing id say is a negative through association. they called us a taxi as my fiancee needed to see a doctor, we didnt realise until we saw the meter on the airport taxi that this taxis meter was rigged. we thought it was going quick but as the 1st taxi we'd had in hanoi we had no idea of the normal speed but we had no choice as needed to get to doctor.

There are a few restaurants nearby and we enjoyed hanging out Puku as recommended by them.

Our stay in koto was fantastic. The staff was very friendly, always happy to help. The rooms were clean, value for money, highly recommended. As our first experience in Vietnam, it was very good. It's centrally located.

We arrived at 5 AM in the morning and had to place to stay in Hanoi. We ended up at the Bodega Hotel (the sister hotel across the street) and were directed to Koto. I can not say enough times how nice the people of this hotel were. Especially the younger women who worked at the front desk. She was amazing! Every time you walked in they greeted and asked how your day was. They were also more then happy to give directions and recommendations.

The rooms were lovely as well! Very roomy and had a comfortable bed. Only downside there was no heat, so we were a bit on the chilly side. A free breakfast is also provided, which is across the street at the Bodega Hotel.

I would definitely recommend the Koto Hotel if staying in Hanoi. Great people and a good price for your money.
