New Star Hotel Hanoi
Feels more local than others
What we say:
Finding this place was the result of a quest. Is there a hotel that's affordable, close to the lake, not in the dead centre of the Old Quarter, that's comfortable, well run, and doesn't participate in the frenzy for tourist dollars? Yes, there is. Now under a new name (it was Tien Thuy Hotel on our first visit) this gem still delivers. Friendly, English-speaking staff will show you room after room after room, and while there are just the three price grades, no two rooms seem quite the same. One we saw had a cathedral ceiling inlaid with terracotta tiles and exposed beams. Standard (‘superior') rooms are small but adequate and rooms at the front have balconies. Bathrooms are large and rooms come with air-con and TV. Hang Thung Street is quite untouristed, so the place has more of a local feel than those just a block or two north.

Booked by email and received prompt reply. We were collected from airport to avoid taxi hassle and check in was smooth and efficient. Our room was a deluxe: comfortable, clean and spacious with a balcony; computer, fridge and TV (satellite channels eg HBO, Star World); fresh flowers and complimentary fresh fruit everyday. The hotel stored our luggage at no extra charge while we visited the Northwest. Fast laundry service. There was no hassle about extending our stay and all staff were polite and welcoming. All-in-all, a reasonable place to base yourself while you find your bearings. Very convenient location. We were sorry to leave, but did so due to the street noise and finding somewhere cheaper and quieter. If the hotel had double/triple glazing this would be a real winner.

Booked by email, very prompt reply. Just as noisy as the rest of the old quarter. The room was nice but the other guests included noisy children and a cat that yowled! The staff were friendly, the breakfast very average, so we hunted around and found it was offering pretty much the same as every other hotel for 2 dollars dearer. Didn't hate it, didn't love it.
