We only stayed at Gecko Hotel for one night while passing through from Sa Pả on our way to Cát Bà Island, but the whole family thought it was a great spot. We booked through booking.com and here is a link to their listing.
Our family room had a good layout and was nicely decorated. The 2 x large beds were comfortable with nice linen. There was lots of good storage, wall mounted TV, air conditioning unit, chairs, laundry basket & bag, kettle, tea & coffee. The bathroom was clean with a good array of toiletries. Wi-Fi was really good. Breakfast was included in our booking and there was a nice selection with tea or coffee. If we had stayed longer we would have made good use of the spa/massage space on the ground floor.
The location is right in the heart of the Old Quarter and staff were nice and friendly.Distant to:
- Night Markets – 350m
- Hoàn Kiếm Lake – 450m
- Đồng Xuân Markets – 800m
- Thăng Long Citadel – 2.3km
- Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum – 2.6km
Hà Nội is reasonably flat so easy to walk around to the many sights and attractions and when we visited in early April the temperatures were very pleasant. For anything further a field there are plenty of cyclos, taxis and Grab vehicles around.
Price – $42.33 NZD per night (included breakfast)
