This is definitely the best hotel we stayed in Vietnam! Great rooms, comfortable beds & hot showers. Good location in the Hanoi old quarter. The service was excellent & the staff here went over and above on several occasions to make our stay comfortable. Overall a great hotel & excellent value. If we ever come back to Hanoi we will...

The rooms are excellent and great value. They organized our whole trip from hanoi through sapa dien bien and laos perfectly. Every hotel, tour guides, travel arrangements worked... More

This hotel is really well situated in the old quarter. Mr Viet and Mrs Hanh are just so friendly and kind. Their tour arrangements are meticulous and our experience of their tour arrangements in Howlong Bay, Sapa, Dien Bien and through to Laos made our trip worry free.

Our experience staying at Finnegans was nothing short of wonderful. Viet, Hanh and the rest of the staff made us feel like part of their family from the very start. Viet took time to walk us through our various options for a one-night cruise on Halong Bay and helped us choose one that fit our needs (and it ended up... More

Viet and his staff took care of every need we had, far beyond the scope of the hotel itself. They arranged an excellent cruise at halong bay for us, and even supplied us with a place to refresh when we came back. They even escorted us to the train station to make sure we travel safely to sapa. The location... More

I had the pleasure to stay 7 nights at the Finnegans, in Hanoi, a city wich I fell in love with. It is VERY well located for a traveler who likes to walk all around , eat on the street and feel the pulse of life in the old quarter. I am a solo traveler and it was very nice... More

Good hotel to stay in, great location and a nice family hotel. Clean rooms, great breakfast. Only criticisms is that they were late picking us up from the airport so we almost got in a taxi thinking they weren't coming and once they found out we had pre booked trains and weren't goingtobook s day trip with them the attitude...

Finnegans, which by the way is an excellent name, it differentiates it from the Golden Horse, or Lucky Hotels that abound in Vietnamese/Chinese nomenclature! It is located on a small plot in a narrow side-street off one of the maniacal roads in the old quarter of Hanoi, which thankfully spares it much of the noise and fumes. It is a... More
