Impressive Hotel

Our rating:
4 stars, based on 1 expert review

A stone's throw from St Joseph's Cathedral on quiet Au Trieu Street, 2017-renovated Impressive Hotel is immaculately decked out and a great midrange pick.

The hotel is in what was originally two buildings and has around 30 modern and fresh rooms, with very comfortable bedding, faux wooden floors, lantern-style lamps, stylish furnishings, wallpapered feature walls, fridge and minibar. Our double bed came with an elephant towel and was strewn with flower petals. Flat screen TVs and robes are welcome touches. Bathrooms are small but smart, with rainfall showers and toiletries, though we couldn't work out what the little glass bowl filled with stones and water was for.

At seven storeys high, you’ll be glad to hear that there's a lift. Breakfast is included in the room rate and taken in the pleasant ground floor reception area. We went for the local option of banh cuon, which took a little while but were delicious. The buffet was one of the more appealing we came across in Hanoi, with plenty of fresh fruit, juices, breads and pastries to go along with your cooked order.

Rooms come in at five prices, differentiated by size and the views (US$35-66). The cheapest rooms are cosy, but not the smallest doubles in Hanoi, and have no balcony; the pricier rooms are more spacious, with a double and single bed and balconies with impressive (so that’s where the name comes from) views of the cathedral.

Promotional rates are available by booking directly with the hotel, but when we booked the best rate was with Booking.com; we'd suggest comparing both. (We paid US$46.75 for one night's deluxe room, which is now US$40 booked direct.)

We were particularly taken with how professional and friendly the staff were here, right down to remembering our name. Au Trieu is a quiet narrow road that runs between Ly Quoc Su and Phu Doan in the more chic area of Old Quarter, with plenty of restaurants and boutiques all within a short walk, as well as good street eating in striking distance. Be warned that if facing the church you'll hear the early morning bells.

Overall, Impressive is a solid option for the price in a great location. Prices are higher than Joseph’s Hotel over the road, but the comfort and style level is definitely up a higher notch, and the views from the top floor balconies are worth paying a bit more for. Recommended.
