“Not worth the money when you can find bigger n cleaner rooms for the same price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

There are better places for the same price if you walk about 100m down the road past the cathedral. You will come across a laneway and this is where all the good places are. We viewed 2 other hotels after checking into Nam Phuong, which were much bigger with huge bathrooms for the same price I.e $15. Oh well we made a mistake but we checked out at 7am because we got woken up by the noise. Btw the rooms are very small

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2011

We arrived here in Jan 2011 on a recommendation from a fellow traveller. After evading two scam attempts by the notorious 'transport mafia' we were relieved to arrive. A rep from the hotel was arranged to meet us at the airport but as we are travelling without checked in baggage we suspect we got out too fast and missed him, hence the two scam attempts. Upon arrival the lovely 'Mrs flower' knew who we were before we even spoke and was all apologies for the confusion (even though we're sure it was our own fault).
This is a family run hotel. It's fairly basic, steep stairs without a lift which didn't bother us. No food is offered but they do sell bottled water. There is one (free to use) PC in the foyer and wifi in the rooms. The only bummer for us was no heating as Hanoi was freezing! In the warmer weather the three fans and a/c would have been appreciated. We also had a little balcony which would be nice on a warm evening. It's noisy here so earplugs are recommended.
The room was a decent size but the bathroom was the ridiculous shower over the toilet type where everything gets soaked.
We also had cable TV but no safe, although we felt the owners were trustworthy to hold our passports etc. However, when Mrs Flower went away for a few days she gave them back to us - not sure if that meant the trust shouldn't extend to the rest of the staff??
We carried our other valuables around with us anyway.
