Splendid Star Classic Hotel Hanoi Reviews
Value for money Dec 29, 2011
Stayed here in December 2009. It is located in Hanoi's Old Quarter.
The streets are really narrow and to add to the unique experience, you'd find those mobile stall holders with their mini chairs for their customers, selling all kind of bbq-ed meats. And of coz the famous Vietnamese Pho (which caused much argument between myself, the best friend and her Aussie bf on how to pronounce it properly).
It is about 5-10minutes to the Hooan Kiem lake which is a really useful landmark to use in case you get lost coz mind you the streets are all nearly identical. And it's is also near the Water Puppet theatre.
The staff is really friendly and can help arrange for tours to Halong Bay etc.Every morning we'd find loaves of French bread, eggs and strawberry jams served though by the 3rd day we went out to scout for French pastries nearby.
The room we stayed in was quite spacious and clean, we got the one on the 2nd level, just up the stairs from the lobby.
There are free airport transfers included.
The only con is waking up to the traffic noise but i guess it adds on to the unique experience of Hanoi (helloooo jaywalking in middle of traffic without getting knocked down - it's freedom esp for me, as jaywalkers get fined in Singapore).
And loads of backpackers' hostels about 1 or 2 streets away as well.
