Having arrived in Hanoi at 01.00am after a 30hour bus journey from Luang Prabang we were shattered and needed food and sleep. We were taken up to our rooms, carrying backpacks up 3 extremely narrow set of stairs is not easy. The pictures did not represent the room and were definitely taken when firstly decorated. Our standard double was a... More

The staff are friendly, the price is cheap, breakfast was included, and the location is in the middle of everything. But we did not find the room or the shared bathroom clean. We payed $11 a night and got about that value. If you want a cleaner place you can pay more and find it pretty easily.

Ms Tracey was extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Our room was very spacious and had everything we needed. We also arranged our trip to Halong bay through the travel desk here and it was brilliant. We paid 18 dollars for a triple room and it was right in the centre of the oldquarter. Highly reccommend this hotel to... More

We stumbled into Alibaba Hotel on a whim and ended up staying 9nights. As a seasoned backpacker, the price was just right, the sheets where clean, wifi-included & the location was right in the center of town. However, what really sold me was the staff. After having been on the road for the last 10months they really made me feel... More

I arrived in Hanoi and did the usual peruse of nearby hotels/guest houses and while the staff at other places were very nice, Alibaba was exceptional. Ms. Tracy, her family and the rest of the employees made my stay a great one! If I ever had a question, they were all more than willing to help. The rooms were always... More

She gave us a choice of 2 rooms.. The building itself is quite old but the room was fine and the bed sheets looked clean. We had a standard double room which... More

We spent 3 nights in Alibaba Hotel last week in a standard room at $10. The building is quite old and so is the room but the staff is nice and helpful. The breakfast is not very generous (eggs with bread and a tea/coffee/glass of milk) but it is included so you can't expect much more for the price. There... More

Centrally situated hostal, great for backpackers looking for something basic and clean. The owners are lovely, honest and very helpful. Like everywhere in Hanoi they will organise trips for you, as even for well travelled backpackers it is cheaper and more efficient to have the agents book the trips plus they are more aware of road conditions when there is...
