From the moment we booked the hotel we were looked after from start to finish. Never experienced service like it. Hanh booked everything for us, trip to Halong Bay. Train to Hue. Breakfast was lovely and a great choice! Viet gave us great tips for our trip which really helped. Followed us to the train station and varied our bag's... More

This family run hotel, owned by Mr. Viet and Mrs Hanh, is very customer oriented. Our travel experience with them was very pleasant: through them, we booked via e-mail the Halong bay cruise, the train to SAPA, a day trip to Trang An grottoes and the shuttle from the aiport to the hotel and it all went smoothly and as...

One of the most friendly and helpful hotels I've ever stayed at. Great location for the old quarter, lots to see and do within a short walk. Viet, Hanh and their small team run a wonderful hotel, the hotel itself is fairly basic as you would expect by the very competitive prices; good sized rooms, comfortable beds, good hot showers,...

This family run hotel was truly one of the best hotels we stayed in Vietnam. Not only from the value for money point of view, but the staff there were truly amazing, very helpful and always making sure everything was all right! Also, the room we had was one of the best so far, not to mention the Pho soup... More

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...

I have stayed here often and every time we get a warm welcome from Viet and Hanh. They make us so comfortable and attend to every need with great care and detail. 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
