Hilton Garden Inn Hanoi Review

Posted on November 15, 2016 by in Hilton Honors, Hotel Reviews


The Hilton Garden Inn is located just south of Hoan Kiem – the center of attention in Hanoi. It’s about a 5-minute walk to the south shore.



I had booked using the app (with the current VISA promotion) and rates were just $57 plus tax for a weekday stay.




At check-in there must have been 10 front desk agents waiting for anything to do. I was happily greeted, but it took three agents a while to get me checked in. I was upgraded to a suite without asking ūüôā

The suite indeed looked fantastic and since the hotel is brand new it was in excellent shape. The bed was superb with a great duvet and firm mattress.



The suite had two bathrooms. I wasn’t too happy with the rain shower though, as it was impossible to control the temperature before you entered the shower. That was a cold awakening!





The internet was really slow and I gave up explaining what ‘Premium Internet’ means after a few minutes. The level of English at the front desk was minimal.

The breakfast was on par with many Hilton properties; it’s usually terrible and so was this, with the exception of a few items. Since Hilton basically gives it away, it’s done incredibly cheap.


There was a complimentary¬†(!) self-service laundry right next to my suite. The washer was very audible which wasn’t great, but I was able to get my laundry done easily.



The hotel is a great deal for a brand new Hilton property. It really needs to work on faster internet to make me come back, though.
