For my lastest business trip in Hanoi, we chose Nam Ngu to spend 4d3n here. And all of our experience here were great . Facilities were excellent. I stayed in the a quite executive room with spacious, cozy. The staff was consistently professional friendly and very helpful to show us some local food restaurant or grab a taxi for us.

I recently spent a few days working in Hanoi and found the hotel to be perfect for my requirements. Free and good wifi, comfortable and quiet rooms and a good breakfast. Staff are all very helpful and efficient. I would not recommend it for much older people as the baths might be tricky for them to get in and out... More

Well located and nice place in Ha Noi. Rooms are not large, but are well maintained and nicely decorated. Staff are great, and breakfast is good for this level of hotel. Overall, very happy with our stay.

My first business trip in Hanoi and what a fantastic place to stay. Spacious, quite room with great facilities, cozy bed. A little near the my company so it's great to have a close by base to go back to. Great staff who were a massive help with getting around.

Fantastic service, very nice place, friendly and helpful staff. Bathroom is large. Room was very quiet, certainly spacious, comfortable bed, good air conditioning, clean. There's good security at all times. The included breakfast was very good. Overall, good value for the price and I'd happily stay there again.

Stay in this hotel for 1 night before going to Sapa. Got a spacious, clean room with comfortable bed. This hotel got great location, right near train stations also away from Old Quarter, might not be ideal if you want to experience the nightlife in Hanoi but perfect for us.

Having a refuge in the well adorned Nam Ngu was appreciated whilst assisting on a United Nations Technical Advisory Mission to the Govt. of Vietnam regarding space-based information and GIS for disaster planning and response. Typhoons and floods are reletively frequent here. The Nam Ngu reminds me of a JW Mariott, minus all the digital/AV appurtenances. Classy, very roomy, well... More

Stay here with my colleagues during our 2 days trip. The hotel got a good location in quite street, away from tourist attraction like Old Quarter. The room was spacious with big, cozy bed and exactly as showed on hotel's website. The price is reasonable for short stay.

I'm really glad that I selected this hotel for two stays during my visit to Hanoi. This was my first ever visit to Vietnam. I read reliable Trip advisor reviews and decided on the hotel. And I was not disappointed at all! Hanoi is lovely and this hotel definitely falls into the charm of the city. There are other hotels... More

We'd just been pampering ourselves with a rather high-end hotel on our first jaunt into Hanoi and decided since it was only for 1 night I'd just choose something simple near the train station for our early morning departure to Hue. What a pleasant surprise: It is an older hotel that has recently been refurbished and they gave us a... More
