On seeing my earlier review, both Tony and An were profusely apologetic and sought me out several times to ask if there was anything they could do. Unfortunately, there is little that can be done to reverse things like being given the key to someone else's room or mixed up laundry that the group had sorted out among itself. I... More

I'm currently staying here as part of a work group and am a little confused as to what the glowing reviews are based on. The rooms themselves aren't bad, but the location and friendliness of the staff seem to be the only other things in this hostel's favor. The problems I've encountered, in order of seriousness, are: * Being given... More

This hotel is now known under the name golden time hostel. It is very new, with comfortable and nicely furnished rooms, very friendly and helpful staff and a perfect location close to the major sights of hanoi. High standards for a good price.

We didnt enjoy our stay here. We were moved from tu linh palace (which is excellent and well priced). The staff were unhelpful and never friendly. The hotel is in great location but there is a lot of noise from traffic and loud music by the lake. Our malaria tablets went missing from our room and when we asked the... More

some times one looks at modest budget. central location including nearby food outlets. cleanliness is also of prime importance and service. I have experienced all above while staying during last month there.

We were sent here by another hotel that had double booked us and were told it was more expensive and better quality which wasn't the case. We felt the hotel facilities were pretty average - the room was big but not very modern and we found lots of ants on the walls and one in the bed in the morning.... More

This small Hotel is located very near the lake, which is the hub of the Old Quarter. The very friendly, English speaking staff are wonderful. Helpful in letting us know the best places to eat, what to pay for taxi and what local bus to catch. Only complaint was the breakfast.

King Ly is a clean and comfortable 2 star hotel. It has a great location within walking distance to the lake, the water puppet theatre, restaurants and the old quarter. We booked the deluxe room ($49 US) and it was huge! Great space, and surprisingly quiet. The breakfast was good each morning. The staff were excellent and were happy to... More

We booked for the sister hotel Little Hanoi but they had double booked us and so sent us to the King Ly instead claiming that it was more expensive and better value. Our room had no window and was at the back of the hotel where smells from a kitchen came into the bathroom and room. Room was clean enough... More
