Splendid Star Hotell was easy to fine with a great central location - it was an easy walk to the peace park and to restaurants in the evening. The rooms were clean, and whilst small, certainly weren't the smallest we encountered on our travels in Hanoi. The free coffee & brakefast in the lobby was fantastic - freshly ground each time and the best we had in Hanoi. The free WiFi internet was a complete bonus and we really enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. Excellent location regarding street cars, train station, memorial park and shoppping. Good breakfast! Friendly staff. Small but clean rooms & bathrooms. Thanks.

It's nice viewing to Great Church. Splendid Star Hotel is also integrated, WiFi Internet Connection, LAN cable for all rooms. We are able to access the Internet anywhere at Hotel inside. Spent three days here with my family and found it to be a delightful hotel - excellent buffets at breakfast. They also provide IP Phone to make a call phone to my hometown in very cheap price. Thanks a lot Splendid Star Hotel.

We stayed at Splendid Star Hotel for 5 nights in Sept. The hotel is fantastic. A great site and position. Great staff, great service. Lovely and comfortable room. Could not recommend this hotel highly enough. No one could be disappointed in this hotel in my opinion. We canceled another booking for the second block of 5nights to stay longer here. Enjoy!

Service was great! Just make sure that you book a nonsmoking room if you're a nonsmoker as the number of nonsmoking floors is limited. Exceptionally clean. Good hotel in a reasonably good location. Room sizes are good for Hanoi Standards and there are some larger suite style rooms. Staff are friendly and fairly efficient. The Hotel hotel has free WiFi Internet with free coffee, beverages and the hotel has a reasonable entertainment center.

Great location

It was a pleasure stay at Hanoi. Less than two minutes walk to Hoan Kiem Lake Street, I would say. Room considered small, but acceptable if for two people. The rooms were rather small as expected of hotels in this price bracket, but there may connection as: Wireless Internet, Cable Internet, Phone via Internet with cheapest price to call other countries. However, it was really clean and cosy. The beds were a little on the hard size. Location of the hotel was excellent, being less then 3 mins walk from Main street.

The staff are excellent and keen to assist

Wonderful standard hotel as everyone says, staff are excellent and keen to assist. We stayed 2 days and went to Halong Bay and back for 2 days. At first impression, we thought that the area around the hotel was a bit lacking in quality restaurants, but once you gain confidence with handling the traffic the French quarter and city restaurants are not too far away. Breakfast is good with basic menu.
A lot of travelers we spoke to say the most difficult thing is to get a quiet room at a reasonable price away from traffic noise. You have it here some were internal rooms but with windows onto light wells. No noise.

What more do you want for $30 a night? The staff was lovely at Splendid Star, helping make our visit easy and comfortable. We were lucky and had a room in the front of the hotel where it was quiet. It's quiet, easy to view the Great Church through out of the window. Breakfast every morning was fresh and delicious and the staff was very pleasant. Great service overall.

Nicest roomn in Old Quarter of Hanoi

Nicest room I have ever stayed in in my life. Great rooms. Take the elevator to bottom and you are in a mall the size of any back home. I would say college students, young couples, and people who want a comfortable place to stay at a decent price for Hanoi street. Thanks Splendid Star Hotel!

Room is great for people on a budget who want the amenities and cleanliness of a 3 star. I'm very happy with our choice! I would say college students, young couples, and people who want a comfortable place to stay at a decent price for Hanoi Old Quarter Street . The room isn't much beyond a place to lay and sleep or watch TV but it was cozy and we can use Internet WiFi in anywhere insde the hotel. I turned up around midnight & reception was fine. I am always impressed and pleased with the welcoming and friendly attitude of all the staffs. I can definitely recommend this hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Splendid Star Hotel

Not loing it so much

from SweetnessCopenhagen
Stayed at the Splendid Star for 3 nights in November. It was a standard hotel, but the price was too steep! 76 Euro a night for a standard/budget hotel in Vietnam is all too much. While we were here it rained all the time, which meant that the walls of your room were covered in moist/water. Also we apparently stayed at one of the crappy rooms, cause there was absolutely NO view. I.e. only 10 cm to the next building.
Management Response from HanoiTonyhao
We want to thank 'Not loving it so much' for their comments on Splendid Star Hotel. Any comments help us to improve our service in the future.
'Not loving it so much' is saying that 76 euro for a standard room for three nights is too much. We think this is a reasonable rate for our rooms. The rate includes a number of things that other hotels charge for - such as free internet and wi fi, free breakfast, DVD players in every room and free all day coffee and tea. We also think that our rooms are a good size, and we work hard to ensure that they are clean and well serviced with towels etc.
As 'not loving it so much' said, our standard rooms do not have a view. However, this is also the case with the standard rooms of other hotels, so we think this is reasonable. Rooms with a view are available, at a slightly higher rate, but generally need to be booked ahead.
The comments from 'not loving it so much' are disappointing but we think that our overall rating on this website shows that most people think that they got good value for money at Splendid Star.

Splendid Star Hotel - Brilliant Service

from willi58
19. Nice hotel in the most quiet area in Hanoi, especially close to St Joseph’s Cathedral. During the trip in Hanoi, I lived in two hotels. I found staff in Splendid Star more helpful, including those at the reception, in the restaurant and of the housekeeping. I'm impressed. I'd recommend this hotel to young couples or budget .Good for shoppers because Nightmarket and shopping centre are within walking distance. The hotels provides a user-friendly dinner and map showing locations of bars, massage shops and restaurants nearby.

Excellent service - great location!

from russ_cal
Great location only seconds from Joesphs Church. Modern hotel with A/C in all rooms. Wifi available throughout hotel. Breakkfast was reasonable. Rooms in middle of floor can be quite small with no windows. Aim for a room at the rear of the hotel if possible. Small rooms are ok for short stays. The real highlight was the friendly staff and excellent customer service. For the price of USD$44 (via expedia) and USD$30 (direct through hotel) - you can't beat the combination of value for money, location and great service. I would definately recommend this hotel.

Business Traveler

from Pantheionian
I had to travel to Hanoi for my work. I would work there together with two colleagues. One of them found Splendid Star Hotel via the internet, possibly even through TripAdvisor. Wonderful how these things work.

Email communication as to the reservation, pick up at the airport, length of stay, etcetera, was excellent. Airport pick up accurate. The driver accepted to drop another traveler, whom we met in the airplane, at her hotel (which was not Splendid Star Hotel).

I find Splendid Star Hotel very OK. The location is excellent, service is perfect, and the atmosphere is pleasant. The staff are friendly and, perhaps more importantly, rather responsive. Since I have to work here I needed a table in my room. I requested a table in the morning. The same evening a brand new desk had been installed in my room with a desktop computer, with internet access, on it.

There are of course small inconveniences. And the first review is right about some problems with the evacuation of water. These are small things, however, and can be solved easily. I travel almost continuously and practically every hotel I stay, even the more luxurious ones, have problems with the evacuation of water (I never understood this, but OK).

And we have to be clear about one thing. The price here is 36 $ per day (and we even get a discount because we stay more than a week or so). I think what you get in Splendid Star Hotel is splendid, for that money.

So, recommended!
Management Response from HanoiTonyhao

great staff

from few3
We just return from Splendid on 21 Oct 2008. Hotel room is new, neat and clean though slightly small.

Basically the staff were informative and helpful. They gave good advice on where to have good and cheap Vietnamese food.

They even help us catch cabs to places we want to go. And they are about 13 of us.

We did enjoy our stay with Splendid. Hope that you will too.

Brilliant Accommodation

from Mosi_009
Thanks Rose and staff,

Wife and I were exhausted and had just had an argument with a taxi driver. So was glad to get warmly treated and relaxed within minutes of being at the Hotel. We stayed for one night before going to Halong Bay. But we made sure we went back and stayed another night on the way back as you just can't get more friendly staff. The second night they put us on the top floor and had a balcony where from there you can see the church and its square.
Brilliant location, right price and the most helpful staff. I would stay again if I return to Hanoi.
Management Response from HanoiTonyhao
Thank you very much for your wonderful comments about Splendid Star Hotel. We greatly appreciate to hear that you will stay with us again. Also, we are so sorry for hearing that you were with the taxi driver. To avoid, we alerted the scam from the airport and arrange taxi to pick up from the airport. Please contact us before you arrive .

Once again thank you very much for choosing Splendid Star Hotel for your time in Hanoi.

A great copy

from aseantravellers
Using the reviews on Tripadvisor, we expected a lot. But it rather turned out different. We started our first night in an other hotel, because our flightinformation would have been incorrect. We found this weird, as we mailed the flightnumber. The hotel we stayed the first night, looked like how Splendid Star is now: well built, but no maintenance. The hotel was filthy and the room wasn't clean. But this wasn't the Splendid Star, but a good friend.

So after the first night we checked in in our new room in Splendid Star. Altough the room was new, it already suffered from water in the walls. Decay already started. The airconwater plunges directly in the bathroom, so when you take a douche, you end up standing in the water from the aircon. Furthermore the water isn't correctly carried off. Standing on a wooden floor, the gutters lay vertical on the hole of the waste. So the water runs to the closet instead and we ended up standing in our own water while using the closet. Which was a triumph for my girlfriend, doing over 1.80 meter: she didn't manage to get herself on the closet properly, because the wall is too close.

The generosity we liked the first hours, faded quickly when the staff found out we would like to be on our own. We almost found ourselves crude, because we didn't want to talk to the staff. Their attitude was to speak and behave in a way we didn't expect from a hotel. Touching us saying 'friend' isn't what we expect from a hotel-owner. Their presence in the morning almost became annoying, specially because orders for breakfast suffered under their ideas of service. Asking for a black coffee ended several times in white coffee or tea.

But how did we compare this hotel in Hanoi? After we spend three days in Halong Bay, we returned to Hanoi and headed for Elegance 4. There we stayed he first night in a comparable prized room. Service was excellent and the room was state-of-the-art. Sitting on our bed, we realized Splendid Star is a great copy of Elegance 4, but it has a lot to learn.
Management Response from TonyHao
We want to thank you for your comments on your stay at Splendid Star Hotel. Any comments help us in making our service better. We have immediately attended to the problems you referenced of the shower and the closet (toilet). As for the service you received, we try to make all of our guests feel welcome. Our way of doing this is being friendly, and helpful in any way our guests require. As for comparing your stay at Splendid Star to your stay at Hanoi Elegance Hotel 4, tripadvisor.com lists the average price at $65, while our average is $36. We know that Hanoi Elegance Hotel 4 is a wonderful hotel, and we are honored to be compared to them while offering similar service, at half the price.

Just the right place ....

from JoDijk
Thank you for enquiring on how our holiday had gone. May I take this opportunity to say that the accommodation was immaculate, spotlessly clean, every need was account for, including those nick knacks that may have been forgotten when packing to go on holiday, such as a tooth brush, cotton buds etc

Rose and Tony commended for both their attentiveness and friendliness, we felt welcome and relaxed

The food selection was good and very enjoyable. Activities were covered in great detail, if you wish to go walking, sight seeing, and there was plenty of literature of the surrounding areas within the rooms.

The location was perfect.

Tips for other travellers, book early. Any one looking to get away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place for you, total relaxation, but still within easy reach of the local restaurants, pubs, and surrounding areas, if you wish to venture out.

Great service

from prismatic
It was my first trip alone, i bought a return ticket to hanoi, booked one night's accomodation at splendid star, and i was ready for an adventure. I arrived late at the hotel (around 7pm, dark already), but they helped me to arrange everything - my trip to ha long bay, trekking and homestay in Sapa (which was amazing), to squeeze into my tight schedule of 5 days. And they gave me rooms to shower/rest in, in between my bus/train/plane rides.

2 thumbs up, no complaints at all

t go wrong with this hotel

from Jimmye51
I was lucky enough to stay in a wonderfully clean and quiet room at Splendid Star for a week. The staff there are wonderful and go out of their way to help you - when leaving I had a night bus to catch and they let me shower and rest up before leaving, even though I'd already checked out. Thanks for a great stay!
