Feeling of french colonialism.
The stalfs are very helpfull and the room is really clean Lobby too small and is very noisy when there is lots of people in the lobby
Luxury rooms, pleasant bar and swimming pool, good fitness centre and spa, attentive staff, helpful staff
Fabulous hotel, I would say the best I have ever stayed in. And though it's expensive for Hanoi, you would pay an awful lot more for a hotel of this quality in another country
Truely excellent colonial hotel. Service and facilities are superb.
The concept of two hotels in one was wonderful and it was a pleasure to see the ladies in their beautiful Ao Dai traditional dresses. Concierge services were very effecient and the hotel arranged all kinds of transport- rickshaw rides, taxis etc were easily arranged. On my last morning I stopped to eat breakfast at one of the restaurants and ordered pancakes ...and was quite taken aback to see both the poor quality and presentation of a basic breakfast item. The other thing i would like to point out is that a steward named Toh near the pool offered to arrange a car for us to a trip to the nearby villages- he said the hotel was Ok with him doing this service. The driver who drove us to the villages was constantly talking on the cell phone and driving single handedly which made us very uncomfortable. He also didnt know the roads. He was supposed to drop us to the airport the next morning and he didnt show up! I would recommend the hotel discourage their staff from offering such services.
The bed was very comfy The hotel never received my booking via booking.com and this caused me many problems. The staff helped and contacted yourselves but they had no record of my booking despite me having confirmation from your site. Also the shower continually leaked and this was an issue.
The hotel is advertised as being the oldest and fanciest hotel in Hanoi. We splurged and booked a room for one night with a small child. When we arrived, we were told that we would not have a room in the original hotel but would be given a room in the new addition. We needed to pay an extra 60 dollars to stay in the original section. They should make this policy clear to potential guests. We also requested a rollaway bed and they stuck it in the very tight living room, which was about 5 ft wide. The staff at the pool restaurant got our orders wrong--forgot my sons drink, and brought my husband the wrong beer
The hotel decor is attractive; even the new wing feels very traditional. The bed was very comfortable and the staff were very friendly.
The service was wonderful, our room (in the old wing) was very romantic and comfortable. Food was lovely and the hotel has an excellent location in the French Quarter. Hanoi is small and it's only a 10 minute walk to the Old Quarter as well. The only thing that was a very small disappointment was that they took our towels away for laundry even though they instruct us to hang them up (which we did) to save on washing for environmental reasons.
We stayed here for a night splurge to end our trip in Vietnam and it was well worth it. Not cheap (certainly by Vietnamese standards) but very, very comfortable. Everything you'd expect from a high-end hotel.
it takes you back in time - luxurious. they charge $5 USD to use the internet and $1USD to photocopy a page - for a hotel of this standard these should be free.
The hotel has a central location within walking distance of the shopping areas and major attractions. The pool area was nice and the breakfast buffet was the best we had during our trip to Vietnam. Our booking turned out not to include breakfast so when we checked in we had to upgrade to an executive room to get breakfast. It was nice though that the executive room included afternoon tea, snacks, free internet service etc.
Nice rooms, friendly staff End price about 25 percent higher than booking.com offered.
location is fantastic TV in the room is out of date
Rooms, comfort, serivce and location were all great.
Situated very central in walking distance to old town and to the lake. Very organised hotel with a beautiful garden with restaurant next to the opera. Good place to relax after sightseeing.
Room was great and the breakfast buffet was wonderful.
Location was good and only a short walk to various sights of interest.
Perferct service in all aspects; beautiful location in pavillions in the Westlake The concierge mixed up my check-in luggage with a group of other guests and left in a bus, but the concierge manager solved this problem in the most adequate way and my suitcase was delivered to the airport by her personally and I was still in time for checkin-in. Good solution, however they should avoid such situations
Good lake front location. Quiet. The view from the lakefront bar is just wonderfull. Good services as you would expect from any InterContinental. Good restaurants within walking distance. Nothing.
Place is very peaceful and quite. I cannot comment about location as I did not have a chance to walk around. But seems to me that is a little far from downtown, 15 minutes by taxi.
Very nice hotel good quality price ratio
This is an amazing hotel just close enough to the centre to enjoy the hustle and bustle and just far enough to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. It is a tranquil setting (with the hotel built on the lake) and the rooms are stunning. The sunset bar is a must for chilling out after a hard day sight-seeing!
The hotel is located next to a beautiful lake and the sceneries are great with excellent service and very efficient and polite employees Had dinner at the Milan Saigon Restaurant and the food was not good considering that we paid US$ 120 for 2 persons which is really expensive and the quality is really not up to a hotel of that status but the prices are exhorbitant.
The room is beautiful and the hotel is very unique in the city and very nice. The staff are hungry for tips..but worth it to stay in The location is not in the center of the city
The hotel is new ,clean, facing water and excellent for relaxation When it is raining we have to walk to the main building which is not convenience and will get wet
Absolutely excellent service! The staff were always friendly and ready to help with any request for assistance. Internet access should not be an extra cost item at a hotel of this nature, especially when the rate for 24 hours of Internet access is more than what I pay at home for a whole month's Internet access!
superb, timely service, what you expect and this is what differentiates the 5* hotel from the 3* hotel.
The service was mediocre for a 5-star hotel. Almost all 3/4 star hotel that I've been in Asia would beat it hands down... Overpriced for Vietnam.
The hotel stuff are friendly but have some language problem. The rooms have to be fully renovatiaded.They are quite old and bath rooms are not good enough.
Bedroom en breakfest very good.
The comfort, relaxed ambience and the friendly helpful staff. The food was good too, and lots of choice for breakfast Liked the mixture of Vietnamese and Western style food. No.
I stayed in a Suite, just fantastic Maybe the room service menu card could be more elaborate
Food was really good in all restaurants. Facilities are old
Location. It's in the business centre and within walking distances to shops and sites. Service. Staff were more interested in their chitchatting and reading fashion magzines. It's not only myself have the bad experience, other people have said about the same.
I loved the fitness centre and the spa centre. The breakfast was also good The bathroom was small and not very attractive
Large, comfortable room Indifferent staff
Splendid Star Suite hotel is newest hotel in group with nice and very beautiful. The taxi driver can reach the door of this hotel, very easy to walk to the lake and night market, just 5 minutes. The room was very beautiful with big balcony and church view. Very great.
It was great, nicest and newest of Splendid Star Group. Next door with previous hotels. Near Hoan Kiem lake and attractive places. Staff was friendly and helpful We really like this hotel because everything is newest and very clean. Balcony with church view and large space for our family. My son liked this room very much because it has private computer in room with free wifi, played game all time, naughty boy. Highly recommend this hotel to family holiday, couple for honeymoon trip or relax after tired working days, will feel comfortable and refreshing the spirit,.. Great!
I like the internet and breakfast included in the price. The staff always very friendly in a natural way. A very comfortable hotel with a/c and a nice shower in the heart of the city. The daily complimentary fruits was also a nice touch.
The hotel is much better than what you think out og the information provided online (maybe it was recently remodeled). The decorations is excellent, very clean and new and it couldn't be better located: right in the middle of the night market and 2 minutes walk from the water muppet theatre!
A newly renovated hotel opened in early 2008 in the fascinating and hectic Old Quarter.It has some beautiful designer bedrooms with equally stylish ensuite bathrooms. I had a City View Room at the rear, which was spacious and very quiet. The staff all spoke English to some extent and were extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely choose it again for my next vist to Hanoi.
i enjoyed the convenience of the hotel and it was a pleasant room to return to after a busy day in town. our room had very little natural light not a problem in the evening.
The beds and the toilets were clean when we checked in. The rooms were clean and the room was spacious enough. A couple of points: 1) The lights in the room are not bright enough. 2) We asked for a double bed room, but then the hotel gave us one single bed each in the room and when asking them to change this, they told us that there are no more rooms available with king size bed.
Great location & clean
We stayed in a Junior room, which was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Definitely value for money! Location is absolutely great. After one night we wanted to extend our stay with one more night, however our room was already booked by someone else, when we requested to see a different room, we caught hotel staff sleeping in a room. They did not clean the room and tried to put us in that room... Of course we left after this incident.
Everything was fine, really nice terrace on top fl. (but the bar was closed). Friendly and helpful staff. Great location!
Even if we have booked a deluxe room (just to be in the safe side) there was a small window in .. nowhere. thus we paid an extra 30$/night for the superior which was very good but too expensive!!! There was no double glasses in the window and it was a little noisy.
Good price and comfortable room I paid with a credit card and was told at checkout there was a 3% charge for using credit card. I told the lady on the front desk that they need to tell their customers this and have a sign on their registration desk, in full view of the cutomers. She agreed with me. I hope they do this
