Managed by Accor and located by Hanoi’s railway station, the Mercure La Gare has a good feel, bright decor and it’s well priced.

Location

The Mercure La Gare is right by Hanoi railway station. The immediate environment is hectic with traffic - but there are wide footpaths so walking is possible. Slightly away from the main hotel areas and the old quarter - around 10 - 15 minutes walk. There are some great little restaurants tucked away in nearby streets. Hanoi Hilton prison is the closest major tourist sight around 500 metres away.


Review

Opened in 2009, Mercure Hanoi La Gare is a dependable 3 star, 100 room hotel in a good location. Lead-in rooms are tight (22sqm) but adequate with a bright modern feel and friendly staff. Rooms are well designed so even 22sqm feels cosy rather than cramped. Superior rooms (26sqm) are more generous.


Facilities brief:
Free wifi (fee for upgraded speed to 4mbs), small fitness centre, restaurant, flat screen cable TV.
