This is not a luxury hotel. They provide decently courteous staff with clean, quiet big rooms. Free wi fi and breakfast is usual buffet. It is within walking distance of main sights like the Temple of Literature, Hoa Lo Prison. It might take from 10-15 minutes walking to reach Old Quarter.

The hotel is basic but comfortable, our room was clean and tidy with cleaners who came in every morning.There was a small bathroom with towels, safe, TV.

Location is just near metro station and in a small quiet street. Breakfast was quite great with a wide choice to suit all tastes. The room was very clean and comfortable , beds were soft, and the bathroom had all the shampoos and toilet requirements. The lift's problematic, you need to walk from 9th floor upward and carry luggage.

Stayed here twice in a tour as a couple, our room was little small but lovely, clean and quiet. The wi-fi was free and strong, a safe, fridge, tv, air-con, a large window view to the street below - everything you need. 2 min walk from Train Station, lots of restaurants around with great food. The street is very quiet.... More

After arriving in Hanoi by train and then walked along the road and stumbled upon the Nam Ngu Hotel in a small and quiet street near the station. Modern, clean and comfortable. Small room but cozy bed and that's all we need after a long day walking around. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. 10 mins walk to the Old... More

Hotel was very fresh with clean and nicely decorated rooms, even though they are somewhat small. The AC is really good, quiet and effective. Make sure to listen to the recommendations from the front desk regarding restaurants and tours. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Hanoi for a short break.

Very reasonable price for such a great location, right near the main train station and bus stop. It was lovely weather when we visited, so we walked... More

Quite a small cozy hotel, staff very friendly and helpful, room (305) was smaller than we expected for what was supposed to be a Superior room. Having said that, it was clean and quiet. Bottled water, tea, snack, etc in room, room cleaned, towels etc replaced each day. Breakfast was buffet style, with plenty of choice eg. Breads, fruit, juice,... More

This hotel had lovely helpful staff and the rooms were clean with air conditioning (stayed in summer) which a pleasure in the heat. The breakfast was great and filling and was fresh! Very close to public transport & restaurants. The bathroom was a good size too. Service is lovely and nothing is too much trouble.
