Don't book any tour they will overcharge you. They gave to you expensive tour, but quality is not good!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hanoi Gold Dragon Hotel

Budget beauty

from Mindimoo
For a budget bargain, this place was pretty good! Only two rooms on each floor meant our street side room was a quiet as a room in the old quarter of Hanoi could probably get.

Comfy beds complete with extra pillows and warm duvets were a great reminder that our own beds were not far away. Decent TV for those nights where staying in was a treat, and good internet access most of the time made this an easy place to stay.

Located on the edge of the old quarter (10 minutes to the top of the lake) Duc Thai meant we could remove ourselves from the old quarter madness a little. A cunning little wiggle through a few streets put us down by the cathedral quickly without having to navigate the lakeside traffic (hawkers and scooters alike).

The rooms were clean, towels always fresh and the aircon worked well.

Tom, the manager, gave great advice about places to eat - check out the Cha Ca restaurant around the corner, and packed us off for a 2 day, 1 night of Halong Bay with Columbus Tours which was well worth the time, money and effort!

Anything I'd want to be different? Sometimes the smell of cigarette smoke wafting through the room quite strongly. Breakfast was definately not a delight - there's only so much baguette, warm egg, warm fruit and jelly jam a girl can handle in one trip. At the end of mine, breakfast was a more pleasant experience if I left Duc Thai and found somewhere with a little more choice.

Still, I'd stay here again...great for a budget, feels safe and the staff are definately friendly.

Duc Thai hotel

from Emma1963
We stayed at the duc thai for 7 nights, it was great the staff were really helpful, the beds were great and while it isn't right in the back packing area that worked for us as it was alittle quieter than the hussle and buste of down town. It is a easy walk to all the shopping areas and to the french quarter and related attractions. So well recomend. They also arranged a trip to Halong bay which was just awesome.

Friendly people - good hotel - love Hanoi

from Tristan7706
We went to Duc Thai on our second visit to Hanoi. At our first visit we slept in a much more expensive hotel. The Duc Thai was at least as good as our first hotel. Good rooms, free internet, very friendly staff (with a lot of knowledge about dutch soccer) everyone speaking fluently english. I would really reccomend this hotel to anyone. It's in the middel of the old quarter, just a few minutes walk to the lake.

Best Hanoi Hotel

from ChuKhaled
"Best Hanoi Hotel Deals" Coming to Hanoi, I realised that my hotel was not correct as my travel agent promised. Checking on tripadvisor, phoned directly Mr Tom to ask for the room.Luckily, It was still available.To be pick up by helpful athletic staff after 5 minutes.Well,perfectly!!!It was mini hotel with 7 floor,small restaurant, elevator.... and especially super clean.Staying there for 03 nights before going to Hue.I was really satisfied about the Hotel during the time in Hanoi.

Good budget hotel

from anderbru
The staff and facility at this hotel made it an excellent choice for a budget conscious traveller. The rooms are spacious and clean and the elevator was an added bonus after a hot day trudging around the streets of Hanoi. The staff are working hard on their customer relations. The breakfast provided didn't quite cut it . I never did like cold rubbery eggs.

Helpful Staff

from longbeans
The hotel was located in the Old Quarters and is within walking distance to most attractions. Hotel room is clean and hotel staff are very helpful. The hotel manager, Tom took the initiative to introduce the main attractions and highlighted the areas on the map that he gave to us. On the last day in Hanoi, though we had checked out before 12noon, Tom offered us the shower facilities (provided there is a room available) so that we can freshen up before we leave for the airport at 6pm.

Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

Better than a large upmarket hotel anyday

from cocomolly
We booked our accommodation directly with Tom via the internet, and everything went to plan. We were picked up at the airport and driven to the hotel where we were met by Tom and his friendly staff. The hotel was as described on their web site. We loved the location in the old quarter, we actually felt like we were in authentic Vietnam. Tom arranged a fantastic overnight boat trip on Halong Bay and then an overnight train to Hue and our accommodation in Hue with pickup at the train. We returned to the hotel after our boat trip and were offered a room so we could shower and freshen up before the train trip (even though we were not longer guests). Then a staff memeber drove us to the train station and would not accept payment or a tip. Thank you Tom for starting our trip to Vietnam on such a positive note.
Regards
Tom, Jeanine, Mick and Wendy

Excellent Staff

from 123456789101112
I stayed in this hotel in the old quarter with my husband and 4 yr old. I didn't look at any other hotels to compare, but this one was fine and a fair value in my estimation. Our triple room was spacious (for a big city) and clean. Most important of all, the staff was very capable and reliable. Airport pickup/dropoff (for a fee) went without a hitch. They helped us change our flight date on Vietnam Airlines. They helped us find out about tickets to the water puppet show. They pointed out destinations on maps. And they booked our boat trip to Ha Long Bay. There are a bunch of different outfits which do the trips, but the 2 night trip we went on through them was very well run and we really liked it. I was happy with this place because it was a good location with trustworthy staff.

They also have some perks like free internet with a good connection, free breakfast (nothing to write home about, but hey- it's free), an elevator, and a bathtub.

One thing I didn't know about and wasn't explained to us: when you leave your room they switch the electricity off at the circuit breaker level. So you have to make sure it's on when you come back (I think they try to do this for you but one time they forgot and we couldn't figure out how to get the air conditioner to work. We called them and they switched it on).
