The room had no windows.
Discovery II was an extremely easy check-in, which--after nearly 24hrs of travel--is so important to me. The room itself felt private, as there are only about 2 rooms on each floor. The bed was large and comfy. and there was a desk and mini fridge. Lighting is a factor for me, and I was especially impressed with the ambiance of the dimmable lamps. Wifi was excellent, and the location was superb (5 minute-walk from Hoàn Kiếm Lake, which puts you right at the Red Bridge, Temple, and Thang Long Water Puppet Theater). Tons of food, bars, and affordable shopping choices within mere feet of the hotel, and ever-present ride services via Grab (the VN equivalent of Uber). Travel agencies will pick you up directly from the hotel, should you opt to see Halong Bay, Ninh Binh, etc. This is, after all, the Old Quarter. It is THE place to stay in Hanoi. The staff were gracious, and you really feel like a welcome friend when you walk through the lobby. We extended our stay from 2 nights, to the entirety of our time in Hanoi (6 nights). I should note we visited during Tet, and experienced no issues with regard to transportation access, availability of services, or anything else the Internet might warn you about. I'd return in a heartbeat. <3
As with any new place, there is a period of adjustment. Discovery II is in a bustling area, with constant motorbikes zooming through the 36 streets of the Old Quarter. You barely hear them while inside, but when you step out the door, you're in it! Also, I would recommend a room with a window. When we re-booked (after an overnight in Ha Long), our windowed room had been booked. We moved into an adjacent room, which did not have a window. The air was considerably different (more like a dank, pitch-black basement). There is always an a.c. to minimize the moisture, though. It's certainly not a deal-breaker.
We liked the central location and the quietness of the room. For the price it was very good, the staff was helpful and tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
There was no window in the room which makes it hard to get fresh air. We also got a few ants in our room
Provided a connected family room which was very helpful. Breakfast had varieties and they arranged Halong bay tour which was excellent. Located near the main touristic areas and restaurants.
Old and requires better maintenance.
With a stay at Discovery II Hotel in Hanoi (Hoan Kiem), you'll be a 4-minute walk from Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre and 6 minutes by foot from Hoan Kiem Lake. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available for a surcharge.
