This is the best budget option in Hanoi. I now stay at this hotel each time I go to Hanoi, which is annually. I have stayed at other hotels in Hanoi and have settled on Camellia 6 as my Hanoi 'home-away-from-home'. Well why wouldn't you? It has the best staff of any hotel that I have stayed in in Vietnam (see the Fab Four pic), an absolutely perfect location and is great value! Nothing is ever too much trouble for the married couple who run this hotel, Anh & Phoung, who I now consider amongst my friends in Vietnam. For example, during my last stay, I needed to get some casual trousers altered. Anh took me on his motorbike to a shop that was a little bit away from the tourist hub of the old quarter, as he knew that I would get a better deal there and even went and collected them for me later that day. All part of the excellent service provided by this hotel.
This hotel has 2 types of rooms, standard and deluxe. I always stay in a deluxe room (at time of writing $20US/night - standard is $12US)) because I like the additional space and having a balcony. My 20 bucks gets me 2 big beds, the balcony, private en-suite bathroom, cable TV, mini-bar, phone, free breakfast (7 choices), free internet and sometimes even an invitation to join the staff to share their lunch! The rooms are always clean and your possessions are safe. As a previous reviewer said "there are only four people who work here and I know and like all of them". This is also very important from my point of view and I echo his sentiments entirely. Over and over again I have seen the Fab Four treat guests like long-lost friends. The staff here genuinely care about their guests and from my observations, become friends with many of them by the time they leave.
I'm already looking forward to getting back there again next year!
