Myself and my friend stayed in Finnegans for five nights and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. They arranged for a pick - up from the train station and planned all of our trips to Halong Bay and sapa before we arrived. When our trip to Halong Bay was cancelled they did their utmost to find an alternative. On... More

This hotel has so much to offer. Its in the perfect location to explore the old quarter and everything in the old quarter is in walkable distance. The hotel rooms are clean, breakfasts are excellent and it is reasonably priced. Whats stands out about this hotel is the care and service given to customers. They helped us book tours and... More

Finnegans made for a perfect end to our Vietnam trip, having worked in hotels and stayed in more than 10 hotels and hostels during our Vietnam travels I can say confidently that the service here is second to none. A warm welcome, delicious breakfast, spot on recommendations and clean peaceful environment combine to make this a top class little gem... More

From the moment we booked to the moment we left, the staff at Finnegans provided truly outstanding service, some of the best we've had in two years of living and working in Asia. For an extremely good price of $159 we got 2 nights in Hanoi, airport pick up and a two day one night Halong Bay tour. They also... More

Great hotel with decent rates! Staff super friendly and concerned with making your stay in Hanoi as rewarding as possible (esp. good info for Vietnam rookies!!). Rooms clean, bathroom alright, breakfast superb. We found Finnegans rather by accident, having stuck to Lonely Planet for accommodation recommendations before. But since it was quite busy in Hanoi, we ended up looking around... More

This hotel is an absolutely lovely place right in the center of the old quarter in Hanoi. Nice spotless rooms with wifi and good breakfast; all for a good price. But what stood out the most were the extremely friendly and helpfull owners (Viet/Hanh) and their staff who run this place. You feel very welcome right a way. They helped... More

This was my second visit to Hanoi and my second stay with Hanh and Viet. They have changed location and the new hotel is an improvement on the old one (which was great). Bigger rooms and a separate restaurant serving tasty breakfasts and coffee. The real stars are the staff who will help you organise all your trips and tours... More

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,...
