Hanoi Elegance, Hanoi Vietnam, Hanoi and The North
The Hanoi Elegance is a group of five similar properties interspersed throughout Hanoi's old quarter. Simple and functional, the hotels offer excellent value and comfortable accommodation in unbeatable locations.
With space in this part of the city at a real premium, the properties are a straight forward combination of a reception, guest bedrooms and a restaurant. The friendly and attentive service is the one main factor that distinguishes the Elegance hotels from comparable properties.
Rooms tend to be pretty similar in design and amenities at each property, with the overall size of the room determining the price. All rooms have comfortable double or twin beds, en-suite bathrooms, satellite tv and internet. Some rooms have balconies with excellent views.
We tend to book the Elegance 2 or 4 as a personal preference but they are all worthy choices for great value options in Hanoi. Much of your time in the city will likely be spent out and about, making a clean and comfortable room in a prize location more than enough to please most people.
The hotels are a mere 5 minute walk from Hoan Kiem Lake and located in the heart of the busy and vibrant streets of the iconic old quarter of the city.
Comfort - This is our lead in category. There will generally be a no frills approach and while some will be characterful, some will do exactly what it says on the tin - provide a clean, comfortable and good value place to spend the night. These places are normally 3* hotels.
Really enjoyed our stay at the Hanoi Elegance, best of them all. Smiley, friendly staff. A special thank you for getting my Ipod to Ms Huang Lan who had it returned to me at Danang.
The staff at the Hanoi elegance were very friendly and helpful.
The Hanoi Elegance Sapphire was outstanding. The staff made us feel so welcome and well looked after. Breakfast was delicious with good choice of food. We would be very happy to stay here again.
Elegance Ruby - Hanoi. Tiny room, the bed was against the wall which meant Dave had to climb in and out. Not ideal for bathroom visit in the night after a few beers! Due to the fact our trip to Halong Bay being rearranged a day later (thypoon), we got a night at the Elegance Sapphire! Very nice! When we returned to the Ruby, our new room was much more spacious. All the hotels offered excellent service, clean rooms, comfy beds and very friendly staff.
David went above and beyond and nothing was too much trouble. He is an outstanding travel consultant. The activities provided were all stimulating, well-run and enjoyable and the standard of guides was almost uniformly outstanding.
