    I stayed at Dong Thanh hotel and i felt compelled to let other travellers know how excellent this place is. We used the hotel as a base whilst we took trips to Halong Bay (which they organised) and Hoi An. The Manager and his team could not do enough to help, they organised taxi's as and when we needed and helped us find our way around Hanoi - the hotel has a fantastic location right in the middle of the Old Quarter to explore and get around from. They booked our cruise on Halong Bay and we discovered that we had paid about $50 less per person than anyone else on the cruise booking through "Agents" and we secured the best rooms. The hotel itself is clean and functional, they look after bags if you don't want to take them with you on short trips and saved all our billing until our last ngiht even though we left in between which was so much easier for us. If i ever go back to Hanoi i will not be looking anywhere else. Service was stunning, location great and they seriously could not do enought to help us with our travel plans. Believe the reviews and book today!

    Overall experience: We really enjoyed our stay at the Dong Thanh, only staying for the 1 night - but wishing we had booked more. Will definitely look at booking them again when I'm back in Hanoi. Great service, great value, great amenities. Not much more you can ask for. Location: In the old town, near the lake and near many places to eat. Price: Great value. Affordable price with great amenities. Staff: All staff were friendly and helpful, many thanks to Ms Thao who offered great recommendations and helped with the confusion over a taxi to the airport. Room: Spacious, clean and comfortable. Fruit on arrival. And the PC with wireless was very useful.

    All the staff were both helpful and friendly. It was never too much to ask to receive an extra cup of coffee at breakfast. Reception staff were more than happy to make phone calls on our behalf to reserve on-going accommodation and enquire about bus/train timetables etc.Mr Binh, the Hotel Manager arranged our trip to Halong Bay and Cat Ba Island. We really enjoyed our stay at Dong Thanh Hotel, Hanoi. Many thanks once again Mr Binh for your fantastic hospitality and arranging everything for us. We would recommend this hotel to any one staying in Hanoi.

    - Quite nice location, in walking distance to many place of attractions and good restaurants, I could ask a map and many helpful information from the friendly english and spain speaking front office.. - Really easy to book by email. - Dong Thanh hotel was also really helpful if you need to reserve the tour along with the room booking.

    This small hotel is conveniently situated in the Old Quarter and provided a beautiful clean room inc. tea making facilities, hair dryer and most important an excellent shower!! I arranged a private tour of Vietnam with the help of Ms Hang who went beyond the usual help of making a booking. My guide spoke excellent English and our driver proved to be the best we have seen and used in SE Asia!! I also booked a trip to Ha Long Bay via the hotel and again, cannot fault the service provided.

    Very good

    Location, cleanliness, quiet rooms with windows facing the courtyard (which is very important for such a noisy city like Hanoi), good breakfast.

    Having trouble paying your credit card. Staff tried to prove what it does not work. Tried to force us to pay in dollars. Before this evening we discussed the form of payment. We refused. Then came another worker, card start good and everything was fine.

    Initially we couldn't stay at this hotel because they had overbooked, they organised us another room at a hotel around the corner and we stayed the following night at Dong Thank after a few grumbles. Staff we very apologetic and upgraded us for the inconvenience. Hotel is nice and clean, modern facilities and western style bathroom. Breakfast is nice, with freshly cooked food and location is in the middle of the old quarter.

    Just the overbooking incident but staff were very apologetic and rectified it to our satisfaction.

    I booked this hotel basing on the ratings from Booked.net and am so glad I did. Small boutique , clean hotel in the heart of Old Quarter. Bed is very comfy and massive. The mini bar is stocked with soft drinks and beer. The city tour reserved through them was dealt so fast and very efficiently.

  • 9.6

    The hotel itself is beyond my expectations. Upon my arrival , to make sure about airport transfers, I already email to them to make sure they would pick us up. Thus, everything goes smoothly without any faults . The room is not too big but enough for us for us. The tour arrangement is good value and I'm totally love Ha Long Bay. It was amazing.
