Anise Hotel Hanoi3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
In the middle of a very busy block, with two sets of curving stairs up one flight to the lobby, I would not have recognized that we were at a hotel, but we checked in with no problem at the end of a two-day flight to Hanoi. We later learned that an elevator goes to the ground floor, so climbing the front steps to the lobby one flight up is not necessary. The room was comfortable and quiet, because of double windows, which successfully blocked the street noise that we could hear from the bathroom. The pillows were thick and dense, which I noticed because I like thinner, softer pillows, but the bed was comfortable. Desk service was spotty, perhaps because of language problems; no one told us to use the bottled water unless we were boiling water, as for coffee, and we had trouble learning that the reason our laundry did not get taken to be washed was because we had not signed the missing charge form, but once we figured out the problem, the laundry was taken and delivered clean and folded before we checked out early on our last morning. The breakfast included many choices and very pleasant wait staff, who remembered that I drink black tea, not coffee or green tea. Definitely a good moderate-priced hotel in you are visiting Hanoi.
A good base for touring from quite central don’t expect luxury but it is clean and tidy with most things a tourist would need breakfast was adequate selection although we did have an evening meal and it was not very good , the bath was raised up quite high so would be difficult for some people to get in and out of , I can honestly say this was the hardest bed in Vietnam though all are quite firm
Arrived here tired but determined to get out and about, checking in was smooth, the front desk manager reccommended a street food walking tour to get us acquainted , a good choice ( street food heaven previously posted) hotel is in a great location, clean great staff ,nice bar,in walking distance of lots of bars , cafe ect,most sites are nearby,
This hotel was booked for us through Trailfinders as part of a tour. We stayed there twice, at the start of our stay in Hanoi, and the night before we flew home. It was comfortable, rooms very nice, good bathrooms etc. The first time we were given a massive suite overlooking the park but luxurious as it was, we were unable to sleep due to the 24/7 traffic noise. We were moved to a rear room, nice and quiet though much smaller. Due to the heavy rain, we used the hotel restaurant, which was fine, reasonable prices. Service was very good and wifi available most of the time. One of us used the laundry service, efficient and quick, reasonably priced. I was able to print out my boarding card at the reception desk.
This is really a boutique hotel, small but high quality. We stayed twice during our tour of Vietnam. We liked the ground floor bar and the top floor restaurant, and enjoyed the meals and drinks we had. Where the Anise really scores is the quality of service you get. The staff seem to be on a mission to make you feel comfortable and well looked after, and they all seem happy in their work. The location, in the middle of "Old Hanoi" is excellent, there is so very much to see within walking distance. Our rooms were comfortable, though my wife much preferred the bed we had in our second room.
Totally recommend about the hotel . actually everything is just new and the rooms are very big with a beautiful view . little bit expensive but worth it . there isnt an elevator, so you have to get up in your own .
Not a swanky hotel, but is clean and has friendly staff. As other reviewers have said the helpful doorman trained us how to cross the road, Vietnam Style. Walkable to several decent restaurants and markets, and much entertainment watching the evening "synchronised" dancing in the opposite square. I am sure that there are classier joints in Hanoi but I did not see any that looked any better that gave the benefit of this location.
Great location close to the Old Quarter. Lovely entrance, air-conditioned (thank Goodness), excellent staff, very good English. Helpful smiley door man. Deluxe rooms are spacious, functional, clean, with large bathrooms. Breakfast good choice. I am gluten and dairy free so the chef made me a special breakfast of green soup and veg, which was lovely. The next morning I had omelette. Kids were happy with options. WiFi good in reception and rooms and also in the bar on the ground floor. We left our luggage at the hotel on an overnight trip to Halong Bay, giving us time to reorganise suitcases before we caught the train from Hanoi to Danang. The doorman gave us a restaurant recommendation which was pretty pricey (by Vietnam standards), it may have been as he thought we wanted something more up to British standards (restaurant as opposed to cafe/street food) or whether he was paid commission! Rooms at back much quieter than the front with traffic noise (which is quite a shock if you start your Vietnam trip in Hanoi as we did!). The doorman helped us cross the road for the first time which was quite an experience (just go, walk slowly, don't hesitate, breathe deeply). Highly recommend this hotel.
The staff are extremely helpful and very pleasant. The hotel is lovely and clean, the bed is comfortable, toilet facilities perfect. Close to old town and very enjoyable walk up from Old Town in the evening right along the hight market.
This hotel is in the right place for the old town and the shops and restaurants. It is clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is part cooked part continental and is very nice. Can hear the street noise at times but this is not always a problem
