    We found this hotel to be one of the best we have ever stayed in. Rooms, staff and food were excellent. We couldn't fault it, the staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Hanoi

    Great place to relax!


    We stayed in the executive suite as part of the $89+US promotion on our honeymoon at the Melia Hotel over New Years Eve & it was a most pleasant & enjoyable experience!

    The room was large with modern decor that was well maintained - exactly how the website pictures it. The room service cannot be faulted - they understood all our requests from extra bathrobes/slippers, ice & razors etc. & attended within 5-10min literally. Breakfast is a sumptuous buffet that left us feeling most satisfied every time.

    My only criticism is that the staff could do with a little more attention to detail. They automatically addressed the check-in papers & final bill to my husband and ignored the fact I actually footed the bill, which irritated me quite a bit. They even gave him my title (Dr) which also got up my nose... Oddly enough my husband didn't seem too upset somewhat...

    The other criticism was that we were not initially given our drink vouchers on checking in & on reading this was part of the promotional package, had to request this at the front counter.

    BUT otherwise we had a most enjoyable stay. I would recommend AGAINST using the countless motos/cyclos parked right outisde the hotel as they know you have money and aren't afraid to ask for enormous amounts. Eg. one cyclo driver asked for 50,000vd for a short distance - we ended up taking a taxi & paying only 11,000vd instead. If you need transport, get motos/cyclos AWAY from the hotel, otherwise taxis are preferable.



    Melia Hotel.

    Liked: Good price. Great Service.

    Dislike: Rock hard bed. Dated decor. Poor Food.

    Listed as a 4 star, this hotel was not as we had hoped. I would rate it to be great value as a nice 3 star. Lacked atmosphere. Uncomfortable beds. We moved to the Hilton for $43.00 more and it's a world of difference.

    Highly recommended


    This was our first trip to Hanoi and the Melia was chosen based on the good reviews posted. We took up the "Executive Suite" promotion that was offered at USD89++ up. Definitely well worth the upgrade. The rooms were very new, clean and extremely spacious, with a separate living room and bedroom. There was also a competent spread of buffet breakfast in the lobby cafe offered as part of the package.

    For the 2 days spent in Hanoi, we didn't take any public transport. Instead, we opted to walk around the city to take in the sights and this was extremely convenient, given the very central location of the hotel. Customer service was generally cordial, but there was one slightly disconcerting experience with an unhelpful front desk personnel in relation to a request for assistance in making a local phone call. Despite this incident, the stay was overall a very pleasant one indeed for a tourist visiting the city.

    Fabulous hotel


    I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Hanoi; in fact, I would suggest this as a better alternative to the famous Metropole. Great lobby, rooms, client service, dining options. The breakfast buffet is super.

    It is by far the most centrally located hotel for the tourist or business traveler. Immediately to the right of the hotel is a market where you can find fresh fruits, street food, and other knick knacks. If you want to see what a typical wet/dry market in VN looks like, this one is a good introduction. Just a block down from the hotel is also an internet cafe with extremely cheap rates.

    You should also use the taxis provided by the hotel as they will give you a fair and honest rate. Beware of the "privately owned" taxis that you find on the street as they may overcharge you.

    I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Great Hotel


    Great hotel: very nice staff, very comfortable rooms, great breakfast (a must for long days of sight-seeing), and very quiet (no street noise at all, which can apparently be a factor elsewhere). And its dramatically less expensive than the Metropole (though less elegant, obviously, but how much time are you going to spend at your hotel?). Other great thing is the neighborhood: walking distance to some of the better restaurants in town (Le Tonkin, Indochine), to Hoan Kiem Lake, and far less cramped than the very over-rated Old Quarter (broad avenues and sidewalks).

    Great place


    could not fault the melia hanoi, i have stayed at some of the best hotels and this rates with them. will be staying with this chain of hotels from now on. and oh so cheap. reccomend it

    Nice hotel for this price


    Melia Hanoi is really a good hotel, especially taking into account its price. It compenses its lack of atmosphere -neither vietnamese nor colonial- with a good infrastructure. Probably it is thought for business people. Good location. Satisfactory.

    A great place to stay


    We really enjoyed our stay at the Melia. It is a spacious, clean, comfortable and modern hotel. The bathrooms probably need to be renovated, but the rooms themselves are great (we stayed in two different rooms during our stay). The Melia is in a good location (a 5-10 min walk from the lake), the staff is fantastic and the hotel is a great value. Price being the same, I would probably stay in the Hilton or Metropole instead (they are supposed to be more elegant), but I would definitely recommend the Melia.

    Pretty Good


    This place isn't as elegant as some other, older Hanoi hotels, but it is huge, well-located, relatively new, and the rooms are great value for money. Gym is adequate.

    I suggest not using the hotel transfer service, however; the charge for a hotel car pickup is a ridiculous $35 while you can easily get a taxi from the airport for $12. (To the airport is $15).

    Slick, smart and relaxing


    This hotel is great. Hanoi can be noisy and dusty and this hotel just south of the lake is glitzy and a great refuge. Its international standard, a tad businessy but offers a great attentive service and a super location. Its also great value.

    Had breakfast in our hotel, they had everything from English, European, Asian cruisine. Then we booked in for a massage, full body for an hour. Very different to the ones back home. Not a Thai massage where they pull u about but they do climb all over you fingers and elbows. Was quite painful for me part of the time, as I have knots in my …

    A young lad picked us up by car at the airport and ferried us across the city, giving us information along the way. We came through a new international airport and new motorway saving us about 45 minutes on our journey. He also run through the currency and tipping. He also gave us general tips how to cross the roads.

    Today we were treated to an experience that many Vietnamese do regularly. I wouldn't. We went to the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh. We were warned on the bus that you can't take in cameras, hats, or water or anything. No hands in pockets. No one told us we couldn't wear sunglasses either. A long queue, which at least moved constantly. Through airport …

    Set off for our boat trip. On the way we saw the fields (?) of mussels being cultivated. The trip starts from the Halong Bay harbour, so we saw the model of what is planned for the development. No indication of the time scale, and there is a whole lot of work to be done. If they don't improve the road from Hanoi then I can't see it being the resort …

    ... rate for the first kilometre and then the rate for the next thirty kilometres on the door. Generally the taxi metre will start automatically - only once did we have a driver attempt to not use the metre so we just got out as he wanted an exorbitant rate for what was a short trip . . . . . although the next one seemed keen to hide the taxi metre with his hat! As a rule of thumb the taxis were around 10-12,000 Vietnamese Dong (or about 35p) per kilometre so with a bit of checking ...
