Stayed at this hotel for 8 nights, would love to haveggiven a good review but have too many problems. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated, the location is excellent for young backpackers and the price is cheap and men at the desk are polite (hence why we stayed)HOWEVER..... ..Upon waking on the first morning we found about 50...

The Nam Hai 2 Hotel was recommended to us by another excellent hotel we stayed in (the Luan Vu Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City). We paid $20 US for a beautiful room with a stylie art deco bathroom. It was clean, air-conditioned, with a fridge, TV, complimentary toiletries and an excellent buffet breakfast included in the price (you walk... More

I stayed at this hotel when the hotel I had booked said they had no room for me and this was their 'sister hotel.' The room was dark, dingy, and smelled of mildew. The air conditioner sprayed water on the bed when turned on, many appliances and outlets did not work, and the bedding was also dingy. The bed was... More

The only good thing about this hotel is that it is centrally located in the old quarter of Hanoi. Staff are not friendly and there is no service to talk about. We had to wait for 30minutes at the airport for the airport transfer to arrive. The hotel is old and water heater and heating facilities in the hotel are... More

I was on a tight budget while I was travelling around Vietnam and stumbled across this hotel in Hanoi. My stay there totally surpassed my expectations for its worth of a mere USD20. The rooms were very clean and furnished Vietnamese style, giving it a very authentic feeling complimenting its amazing history. I even had a window with a cute... More

We stayed here for three nights on a recent trip through SE Asia. It was just perfect - $22 per night for our basic room, which included a free airport pick up and breakfast every day. The room itself was perfectly fine and was clean with hot shower and lovely ornate wood furniture. I emailed them to make a reservation,... More

Located in the old quarter of Hanoi, the hotel is ideally located where all the buzz is. Staff are ok, efficient but not the friendliest. Paid $20USD for our room with breakfast. The hotel has 2 PCs for guests to use for free, but there is also wireless internet available for free as well. The lobby is nice and cool,... More
