  • The "Cuba" Hotel


    It works, but you can find better value elsewhere.

    The Lonely Planet says this hotel was built with Cuban influence (and help from Castro). An interesting historical fact, and perhaps an explanation for its generally older (dare I say dilapidated), 1970s feel. It is clean and bright enough, rooms are large, views are nice and balconies can be found on most rooms, but some small details like the thin and worn carpets, cement block architecture make it feel old and impersonal. The bathrooms are also basic and beds a bit hard.

    Not to mention poor judgment on the part of the management, who chose to commence refurbishment construction at 6am every day, so we were awoken by the sound of pounding hammers each morning we stayed there. Very unpleasant.

    If you are going to stay in this part of town, I would recommend taking a look at the Sofitel or Sheraton; for a bit more money you can get a noticeably more comfortable stay.

    Unique Quality: There's free wi-fi in the lobby.
    The pho at breakfast is fantastic.
    Nice outdoor swimming pool.
    Great view of the lake.

    A nice 4 star hotel by West Lake


    I am not used to staying in such nice hotels and therefore I had to be satisfied from the very start!!!
    All kind of services ar provided there and really the costumer is the king there. The staff is reproachless.
    A big swimming pool, a massage place, the can Iron your clothes or mend it if need be. Anything you can expect from that sort of place.

    Unique Quality: 1/ 10 minutes away from the town center by mototaxi.
    2/ Great, peaceful view on West Lake
    3/ Away from the noise.
    4/ Perfect staff.
    5/ Perfect rooms.

Cause we havent been in Hanoi, would somebody please tell few things about this place;

-is it too far from the old town?
-is it worth staying for couple nights(clean, etc.)?

It is located in Tay Ho Dist and the adress is Yen Phu Str.

Thank you for your coming answers...:-)

I've been to Hanoi several times but I never stayed in that Hotel.

The Hanoi old town is pretty big, including '36 streets' altogether. But if you like to hang around the city center, I would recommend you to find some hotels near Ho Guom (Sword Lake), which is a nice area and near shopping markets.
However, it is rather easy to travel around Hanoi by 'xe om' - a means of transportation by motobikes. If you could drive a bike, it will be more exciting to explore the city by renting one. But be careful with the traffic in Vietnam!

It is certainly worth to spend 2-3 nights in Hanoi. There are lots of places and attractions to visit. If you like to see ethnic people, go to Sapa.

Dear Kimmo,

This hotel used to be the best hotel in Hanoi before the wave of foreign invested hotels. The hotel is built by Cubans in 1975-76 and owned by Vietnam Tourism. It juts out into the West lake so you can have rooms with water underneath and I think it's the appropriate place to stay during the hot months.

Location: about 6 kms from the old town, by taxi the cost is approx. 40,000 Dong ($2.5), you can use the aircon local bus for 2,000 Dong but it's crowdy most of the time. Check with the hotel if there is any free shuttle bus service at:
