"Great way to immerse yourself in typical Hanoi streetlife while enjoying comfort"
Very friendly personal service. Breakfast was a real treat, with ingredients procured locally, and made to order with minimum fuss and very tasty. Would definitely go back to this hotel if the chance arose. Hotel is in the central part of the Old Quarter, close to the action on the streets and 8 minutes walk to the Lake. A street map (given to us with the name and address of the hotel by Reception) is essential as landmarks are difficult to find. The room was clean and comfortable but old. The lift was very small, but we used the stairs most of the time (clean and safe).
Only concern was the receptionist came to our room and requested our passports so she could get information from them. All legitimate, but not a good feeling being parted from our passports. We would have been happier waiting in reception while the information was retrieved. We went down to reception after about 15minutes and they were safely waiting for us.
The Calypso Grand is well-located but, more than that, the staff will bend over backwards to make you feel welcome and help in any way they can. They booked train tickets for us in advance, which was done so efficiently..they even took us to the train station to make sure that we checked in ok and got the right train!! This was after loading us up with ginger tea (one of us had a cold) and even making us a packed breakfast for our long train journey! I can't recommend this hotel highly enough - room was also spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Great value - I'd definitely stay again.
Great stay at the Dong Thanh. Staff went out of their way to provide information and great courtesy like looking after our bags for us well after our initial 2nt stay. Value for money is excellent , did not try the food as very close to wonderful street food.
As the title, we found the hotel nice and cosy. The rooms are clean and comfy. Plus point is that it is quiet as there is not many rooms on a floor. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is provided and well served.
Great staff, friendly and helpful.
Room is small and cramped. Bathroom door is a sliding door with frosted windows. Great for couples, but if you're sharing with friends, you might end up seeing more than you ask for.
There is a nasty sewage odor that comes from the drains in the bathroom. It seems to exist in all rooms as we stayed in two different rooms while we were there.
If you are looking for a late activities, this hotel isn't for you. Everything around here closes early except for a few cafes. Most restaurants seem to close after 8 or 9pm.
