From our research, The Hanoian is one of only a handful of small mid-range boutique hotels in Hanoi that offer great value and a comfy stay without the luxury price tag. It was the perfect base to explore the city and to recharge after a few hours wandering its bustling streets. We really enjoyed the central location in the middle of Hanoi's Old Quarter, the welcoming and practical rooms, the large buffet breakfast choice, and the staff's friendliness. The hotel only opened relatively recently, and it's clear that the staff is very customer-oriented and keen for any feedback that can help them enhance guests' experience. All in all, we were impressed by the level of service. In fact, we were so cosy there that we ended up staying 2 extra nights!
