The room was nothing special nut for 12 USD a quite fair price. This was not the problem. We booked a tour at this office and they charged us an extra tva of 10%, which was obviously already include in the price of the tour, as other tour member had the same price. The other thing is, that they charged... More

The rooms in the hotel are fine and as expected of a budget place in hanoi. The manager seemed very friendly on arrival and agreed a price with us before we took the room. However, upon checking out they demanded a higher fee! Knowing they had your passports they knew they could charge what they liked. For this reason I... More

Friendly staff and good bustling location! We were told a certain price for the room but bargained it down a bit. I just read the bad review about room 302!! We were in 302!! Obviously they have cleaned up or renovated because bathroom is great and clean soft beds.

The room are spacious for its price, 15-20 USD per night.. The bathroom is small but quite clean. The staffs are very helpful and friendly. I'm staying here for 2 nights before I leave to Laos tomorrow. I recommend this hotel to who needs a decent room with small budget.

This place is pretty average, but the location is good and so is the price. The reception try to sell you tours, that does get annoying. Strange that this place is known as both Memory Hotel and Funny Hostel? Part of a scam perhaps? I have seen another Memory hotel at a different address in Hanoi, it had proper signage... More

The location of the hotel is really quite good. The room was OK for the price. Bed had a decent depression on one side. AC could only be fixed on freezing cold or Off. The shower was not that great. But thats what you get for the price. What really put us off was that the reception tried to overcharge... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this clean and well located hotel! A huge window, a fridge, hot water and even a wee table plus chairs for a good price! But WATCH OUT: if they are booked out, they will recommend you a "sister hotel" - don't go there!!! To catch a glimps read the reviews on it. It is... More

The room is clean enough except for sheets that has a bit of stains on them and the shower handle is falling apart. Except... More

We stayed here whilst based in Hanoi fo a week. Our twin room was on the small size but clean enough, whilst the taps on the shower were a bit shoddy. We booked a tour to Sapa and also to Ha Long and all transfers went to the correct destinations (they are part of the Sinh Cafe Tour operators and... More

Very dangerous people indeed. We did not stay there. We booked a bus to Luang Prabang with toilet from the male attendant. To our horror, there was NO toilet and the bus headed to Vientiane instead! This is definitely not a mistake and was done deliberately as we have confirmed with him while he was issuing the receipt to us... More
