The location is within walking distance of the busy markets, lake, and other tourist attractions. The room was big with a balcony that doesn't face the street so it was quiet in the evenings. The breakfast has a mix of typical Western foods and local. The staff is incredibly kind - Sales Manager Lan Anh is a great resource for things to do not only in Hanoi but also outside tours. Be sure to speak to her about any tour suggestions, dining, massages/spas, and activities. She'll go out of her way to make sure your stay is amazing.

Great Hotel in a Fantastic Location
My wife and I loved the extremely convenient location of the hotel and the room was exceptionally comfortable, especially considering the relatively low cost of the hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and provided some great information on things to do in the area. I would definitely plan on staying here again.

Thoughtful, Central, and good value
This is a lovely hotel in an amazing location - perfectly central yet quiet. Rooms and building have lots of thoughtful features, from a true tea pot in your room to tasteful design in the bathrooms and furnishings. Breakfast was fine, with fresh fruit options and good coffee, but standard / somewhat lackluster warm offerings. Everyone working here was lovely and helpful. Our only real complaint, and it is a major one, is that our room in the back had very bad WiFi throughout our two nights. Sometimes it worked flawlessly, sometimes it didn't work at all, and usually it was somewhere in between. If the WiFi is working as they attest it normally does then this is a unique, tasteful, quiet, well located hotel that represents excellent value. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Loved the staff and location! Great spot near everything in old quarter. Staff were lovely and super helpful with everything. The space was great and felt like home.

Decent place and good staff
Decent place in a tiny lane way. Very nice staff and good food. Worth the $$'s. Stairs were painful, but then again I guess thats part of the deal.

Great little hotel in central Hanoi
I stayed in the Maison d'Orient for the second time and liked it as much as the first time.
The staff is friendly and helpful without being over the top. Check in was efficient, and our luggage was brought up to our room by the staff, which was fortunate as we had a room on the 5th floor (no lift).
The room was simple but with all necessary mod cons, i.e. an efficient and quite A/C, shower with plenty of hot water, toilet, small balcony and a great view over the rooftops of the neighbourhood, a comfy bed, and a small fridge pre-stocked with water, some softdrinks and a few beers.
Breakfast is included in the room rate, and there is a a choice of eggs (scrambled, omelette, fried, boiled) or a bowl of vietnamese broth and noodles, which is also very tasty.
In addition to this there is of course coffee, tea, fresh watermelon juice, cakes, toast, etc. In other words, more than enough to get you started for the day.
The location of the hotel is in a small alley, in the warren of small streets between the old quarter and the cathedral. It is (relatively) quite at night, apart from the odd cockerel making himself heard, and it is a great location as a starting point for exploring the city.
As is usual in Vietnam, there is free wifi available in the lobby and the rooms.
Can warmly recommend the place.

Fantastic location in boutique hotel
Great quiet location in the bustle of old town. Try for the top floor rooms, 501 and 502. Both have nice views from the small balcony and lovely light. No lift, however, so lots of stairs up to the 6th floor.

A friendly home from home.
All staff were so courteous & helpful.
Really good location for the old quarter with excellent restaurants very close by.
Enjoyed trying all the exotic fruits at breakfast & recommend the Hanoi soup!!
Very comfortable bed & quiet room.
We stayed in Anise on the top floor, the stairs kept us fit but they have a secret luggage lift.
