From start to finish, staying here has been a real pleasure. The rooms are great, AC, TV, fridge, en suite bathrooms, laundry area on the balcony, and the place is really well located. The best thing about it though is the staff- they're so friendly and helpful, they really look after you and make sure your stay is as comfortable... More

I just want drop a word to say that Ms Chau assistance on line was great. I was coming early from Sa Pa last Thursday, and even if the hotel was full booked, it was offered a free shower and breakfast while his staff was calling a nearby hotel to find a room for me.

We stayed one night at the Hanoi Guesthouse, but felt like we were members of the family. The service we received was outstanding, as was their hospitality. We arrived in Hanoi in the morning, and were welcomed with a continental breakfast. The service we received was exceptional. We had trouble making arrangements to Hue, but after a few phone calls...
