We arrived at this hotel straight from an overnight flight so our room was not available. Staff were very helpful and provided a shower room so we could wash and change, and also stored our luggage whilst we went out for breakfast. They managed to get a room sorted by 11am and it was a free upgrade - a large room with huge comfy bed. Reception helped us out with various bits of information and were always smiling. We loved the location and enjoyed our stay.

This Hotel is Great in regards to Location just 5 Mins to the Lake and Water puppet theater. The hotel staff was great very informative and exceed expectations. Breakfast is included in the room rate and it is amazing with lots of different food from both Asian and western dishes, Also there is an ATM right out the front of the hotel which is great if you need cash. Will stay here again

This hotel was really good . It's right in center. The room was clean and the bed was wonderful. I stayed here for 3 nights. It was near the night market where you can walk just some steps from hotel.

We had read that rooms on the street side of the hotel can be quite loud, so as we were checking in we asked for a room at the back of the hotel. They already had a room prepared for us somewhere else, but immediately found us a room towards the back of the hotel and we had no problems with noise. The room also seemed to be quite large and we think we had an upgrade to a larger bed free of charge. The location is great, super centrally located in the Old Quarter. The bed was the most comfortable bed we stayed in during our seven city trip across Vietnam. Also the hot water lasted a long time and there was great water pressure. The pool looked good, and there was tons of space to relax outdoors on a sunny day. Unfortunately it was too cold during our stay to use it. Overall, staff were friendly, breakfast was good, and the stay was great!

I spent two nights at this premise and it's very good location to access to Ta Hien street where crowded the backpackers and night life. The price is a little bit higher compared to those located in the same location. It's so easy to find good food, massage and drinks. One minus point is for parking and dropping guests for the Gia Ngu Street is rather narrow for both May De Ville and Tirant Hotel.

This is tough one. I doubt I would go back or recommend a friend but it really wasn't that bad. First prize was the location and the bright and appealing exterior of the hotel, along with the friendly welcoming. The rooms were really average. Apparently newly built but did not give that impression. Beds very comfy and all clean. Massage was average and breakfast too.

Great location in Hanoi Old Quarter. Walking distance from Huc Red Bridge and lots of Restaurants, shops and bars nearby. Check out Ma May street which is pedestrianised on a Saturday and main road near the Lake pedestrainised on a Sunday. :Lovely staff , very helpful. We were also upgraded to a bigger room for no extra cost. Delicious breakfast served daily!

The hotel was ideally situated for walking tours of Hanoi - to step out of the hotel into the bustle and buzz of the streets - especially on the Sunday when the roads are closed to cars really starts the holiday. The room was fine, decent sized beds and good bathroom. The rooftop restaurant had a good variety of food for breakfast.

We spent a couple of nights in Hanoi at the May de Ville Old Quarter. It is ideally located at few minutes walk from the central lake and it is great to be able to walk around especially on sunday's when the roads around the lake are closed to cars. The rooms are as expected for this level, nice and in good shape. We had 4 rooms for 7 people and it must be said that some rooms are much larger than others. Not that important as we did not spend our time in rooms anyhow. I am however rate the hotel only at 3 stars for the multiple confusions we had with the reception staff concerning our reservations. 2 or our rooms have paid for late checkout and 2 other rooms where checking out the next day. Somehow, that seems to complicate for the hotel to manager. and we end up having to go back to the reception multiple times to get access to our rooms (the card key were disabled). That said, the staff was always polite and helpful trying each time to solve the issue.

The May de Ville is centrally-located, allowing my group to walk to many of the locations in the area easily. To places we could not walk, the staff was willing to call for transportation and help communicate with the drivers for us. The staff was friendly, the accommodations were clean, and the breakfast was full of variety. The view from the rooftop was the highlight of our stay!
