Hanh and Viet and all the team at Finnegans Hotel were absolutely outstanding. They couldn't do enough for you. We took on a lot of recommendations of places to eat and things to do whilst in Hanoi from them and none of their recommendations failed to deliver. We had a fantastic time in Hanoi and at the hotel.

Finnegans is the BEST! I traveled around Asia for 5.5 weeks and this was BY FAR the best place I stayed. The entire staff was wonderful. From the moment I walked in, I felt at home. The hotel was clean and extremely comfortable. It is within walking distance of most of the sights you would want to see in Hanoi,... More

This is a fantastic hotel. Our family of 5 - Mum, Dad and teenage daughters 14,14 and 15 loved it - terrific location (right in the Old Quarter) and just around the corner from everything really! Walking distance to the Hoan Kiem Lake, Water Puppetry theatre, Hanoi Women's Museum, St Josephs Cathedral and Hoa Lo prison. The rooms were spacious... More

Rooms were huge! Big balcony, nice shower and great air con. The owners are very friendly and helped us get our train tickets to Hoi An at the local price and also a taxi then bus to Cat Ba Island. They did suggest tours but weren't pushy once we said we had already organised our Cat Ba excursion. Located in... More

The hotel was very clean with spacious rooms and a nice shower. The service was AMAZING!! We couldn't have asked for better service when it came to help with booking tours, massages, and dinners. The owner bent over backwards to make sure that we had a pleasant stay and I have nothing but positive things to say about Finnegans!! We... More

We had an excellent stay in this hotel. Rooms are big (with balcony), clean and modern in style. Small hotel with few rooms but with elevator. Price is very reasonable. You get to choose 1 meal out of the five options for breakfast (their pho is very tasty & the best we had in Vietnam). Location is good for those... More

We had a comfortable stay here and the owners wife was very professional and helped us in many ways with booking flights and train tickets. JUST BEWARE of the owners temperament change should you shop around and return with a competitive price for his Dragon Pearl Junk boat tour. This time of year should be no more than $282 including...

Have you ever imagined that you can still stay at your lovely home even in your journey to the strange land? Now let Hanoi Finnegans hotel becomes that wonderful home.Lying in the nice little lane of charming Hanoi Old Quarter, our Finnegans Hotel is a peacefully nestling house –like seeking for a tranquil moment in crowded Hanoi streets. Even more, you will fall in love with our Hanoi’s charming, which is full of color and characteristics in every nook and crannies. It also satisfies your curiosity by just few minute walking to discover famed tourist attractions, such as Hoan Kiem Lake (Lake of Sword Restored), Water Puppet Theatre, Night Market, Opera House, History Museum, One Pillar Pagoda, Temple Of Literature, Art Museum, etc.With the greatest love of ancient Hanoi and passion about hospitability field, I started to open the family hotel in an effort to pursuit my dream. Coming to my hotel, you will be pleased with the cozy and friendly atmosphere created through “like-brother-and-sister” staff; however, professional serving style is definitely maintained. It is proved through ten-year experience in hotel service. Despite lacking of five-star facilities, I always remind myself of putting my heart, soul and great effort to give the most memorable experience for you, even more than five- star service. Being one of my friends, you will be warmly welcomed through my hospitability, trustworthy and caring with all my heart.If Hanoi is your most preferable choice for your trip, Finnegans hotel is your perfect and unforgettable destination for relaxing. ... more   less
