Medallion Hanoi Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This small hotel is well situated in the old quarter of Hanoi, with many good restaurants, bars, and shops in easy walking distance. Rooms are small, but in great condition and at a reasonable price. This is a good base for business or tourist visits to Hanoi.

Medallion hotel is very well located right in the heart of old quarter and is very accessible. It provides access to the amazing breakfast buffet. The rooms are very comfortable although smaller than what it looks into the picture.

A lovely place set in around the old quarter ,very clean hotel and friendly hosts . Street has many bars and eating places at reasonable and cheap prices . You can buy a pot of beer @ 5000 vnd , less than 25 cents and

This hotel is very central in the old quater. We stayed two nights. The beds are very comfy and the rooms are lovely and clean. The breakfast was very nice and plentiful- with a good western variety. Staff were very polite and helpful- overall had a lovely stay in the Medallion hotel!

I've written about this hotel before. This is a update from my last stay. When you are looking for somewhere to stay, you look for cleanliness, comfort, closeness to tourist sights, friendliness of staff, and of course price. From the minute you walk through the door you are filled with a sense of, I'm home or I've been here before. The door men are quick to relieve you of your baggage. The receptionists, have all your details prepared, your room is ready, all you have to do is hand in your passport to be copied. You are taken to your room or its simple to get their yourself. On entering your room , you are greated with a sense of warmth, smell of cleanliness and a kettle to make a relaxing tea, or coffee or a cold beer in fridge, remember anything in fridge is chargeable. Your sheets, crisp and fresh, your towels immaculately white and soft Breakfast is included and the ground floor restaurant is as immaculate as your room. Food is freshly cooked, eggs as you want, fruit juices, never ending coffee or tea. Brilliant way to start your day. The hotel is centrally located in the old quarter and easy walking distance of most tourist sights, of course other sighrs are reached by bus, taxi, rickshaw.If you like street food, its just out the door and every street restaurant or cooking place are fresh and clean. Vietnamese food, is far tastier, less greasy, more vegetables than chinese food. Its cheap to eatva cook your own Vietnamese BBQ,,,,,yum. You may meet Madame, the owner of the hotel and she will treat you like a long lost relative. She is like her staff, efficient, friendly, courteous,,,,,some times a bit cheeky,,,,,lol,,,but I admit I started it ,lol, How can you get booked here . A 5star hotel, great staff, food, I advise uou contact Ms Lucy Ho at VN Discovery Tours and she, can or will organise anything and everything from stepping off the plane, assist in your visa, transport to hotel, Tours to Sapa, Halong Bay, just to mention a few places. You won't find friendljer tourist agents who guarantee you will receive the best prices for all your needs and wants. Am I biased, yes. I come to Hanoi a lot, Ive been lots of hotels till Lucy gave me this one to check out and I will never stay anywhere else now. Not at the price you pay for this quality and comfort. Don't take my word, try it, you won't regret it.

Although slightly “tired” is still a great choice. Right in the heart of Old Quarter but still quiet inside. Superb staff, nothing is a bother, i.e. bedside lamps weren’t working, fixed in five minutes. Comfy big bed, great shower, very clean. Oh, and we thought breakfast was just fine.

Central in the old quarter! We had the luxe room on the 6 th and 7 th floor. Large bedroom with big bed. Good bathroom and shower. Great variety at breakfast. Friendly people. Around the corner many restaurants on the street. Much more to prefer than the French quarter.

The room was nice, cozy and clean. The staff there were very friendly. Can't ask for a better location and the hotel is in the absolute center of Hoan Kiem. Highly recommend this for travelers to Hanoi.

We love the location of the Medallion right in the middle of Ma May and the Old Quarter action. Rooms always clean and decent sizes. Our only complaint is the breakfast which is always disappointing. We will return - just hope the breakfast is one day improved!

The hotel is ideally situated in the center of the city, offers comfortable rooms and the restaurant offers good Vietnamese and International Dishes. The hotel is ideal for travellers wishing to explore Hanoi by foot.In the evenings it is in the midst of the pedestrian zone!
