Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   The best experience there is. Little attention to details really made a bid difference. Staff are superb. Historical relevance surely enhanced the experience elegantly. Why breakfast is not included ? I feel like the hotel nickel and dime you in this department 🙄 Hotel transportation to airport is $125 USD = 2.5 million Dong. Too pricey. We paid $25 from airport to the near by hotel when we came in. But for that price. You get a limo service. Fancy fancy fancy limo. Worth it.

Review:   Exceptional food and beverage quality of world class caliber. Our dinner was just as fine as a 4 star Parisian restaurant; special drinks at the Poolside bar are outstanding (we loved the Charlie Chaplin cocktail). Although the prices are high, the value is even higher...we loved our evening at this Hanoi treasure.

Review:   Super hotel. Great rooms. Very romantic. We stayed in the old wing with view over a little park and fountain. Rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. The bathroom is large and very clean. Breakfast is perfect. Lots of choice. The staff is very caring and well trained. Long in Beaulieu was a star, Thanh at the pool, thank you for the nice chat. The staff is all and all smiles. Staying here was truly an experience!! Loved it and highly recommended.

Review:   A fine hotel, very well preserved, great services. Ask for a room in the historical wing as they have far more charm and character compared to the new wing. This is the hotel with my most favourite pillow.
