Located on one of oldest and most quite streets of Hanoi next to Joseph’s Cathedral and near the Hoan Kiem Lake, the Splendid Star Hotel is a newest hotel which opened in September 2008 and is one of the few family-owned and run hotels in Hanoi.
Situated down a small, quiet lane just 1 block north of the steps of the St Joseph's Cathedral in the centre of town and 3 minutes walk to Hoan Kiem Lake. The hostel is perfectly located to explore Hanoi's Old Quarter.
The hostel is just 300ms north of the Airport shuttle stop located at 1 Quang Trung St and 1km from the Hanoi Train Station.

I stayed at the Splendid Star Hotel for 3 nights. The receptionists were friendly and serviceable. The location of the hotel is excellent. Every place worth seeing is in walking distance or can be reached with the street car (a stop is just in front of the hotel). The room was quite small but ok for one person. It was clean and that is the most important point for me. The bathroom although could be somewhat larger. But I think that in Hanoi small city every (hotel)bathroom is very small. The hotel provides an Internet connection (24h) and coffee (from 3p.m. until 11p.m.) for free.
