“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

We absolutely recommend staying at Indochina II in the Old Quarter of Hanoi city. It is max a few minutes walking distance from the lake, one block from the water puppet theatre and the weekend street markets only a few blocks away. Tom, what more can we say THANK YOU. Tom, the Manager spoke English very well as did most of the staff. Tom organized our trip to Tam Coc, City Food Tour, Museum and City Tour and Sapa stay, including all transfers and tour guides. Everywhere we went there was somebody waiting to collect us with our name on a board. We felt so welcomed, the service was exceptional.... We travelled with our two children and felt very safe due to the beautiful nature of the Vietnamese people and the pre-arrangements from Tom.

The hotel is lovely, breakfast beautiful, but it is the service that you will remember....

Room Tip: We booked for a family, the curtains are awesome, block out the light so you can sleep in.. We were...

The service at this hotel exceeded our expectations. Tom, the owner, booked our trip to/from Sapa and Halong Bay, which included all transfers, accommodations, tour guides, etc., and it was a great deal. The level of accommodations was awesome, and it was great not having to spend time planning out all of the logistics as he had some great connections. Trust him on what he says; get the nice boat in Halong Bay, get the private tour guide in Sapa, just do what he says. The hotel itself was very nice and in a great location.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms.

We arrived early off the train from Sapa, and were offered a clean stand by room to have shower and rest before our room became available( US$20) we were then "upgraded" to a suite with a dodgey plastic capsule shower that had a broken floor and none of the 'features' of the shower actually worked Tom Tom said they were saving to buy a replacement but he didn't know when that would be. I feel that the "upgrade" was an attempt to persuade us to book his overpriced tours and when we booked at a travel agent directly across the road his manner became a bit annoying.
Overall rooms were clean and comfortable WiFi was good, breakfast was good if your went early as it was fresh, if your went later items looked stale and dishes not replenished, corn flakes tasted like they had been opened months ago.

Room Tip: The cheaper rooms don't have windows, so if you want windows book dearer room.

Spent 2 nights at Indochina Legend 2.
Tom at the reception desk was absolutely wonderful and helpful. The room was very nice, spacious & clean.
Hotel located a few blocks away from the Hoan Kiem lake and within walking distance to Old & French quarters. I would definitely go back there.

I don't write reviews but in this case I thought it necessary. The manager here named Tom is fantastic. He went out of our way to ensure that our stay was a memorable one . Tom got the best prices for tours and ensured that we were upgraded to the best accommodation on all tours, and at his hotel. He provided his phone number and was on call for us at anytime. I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough, and book your tours here as well, as we paid the same as others on our tours, and had the better rooms or locations, all organised by Tom. Thank you so very much Tom for making all of our adventures a memorable one. I will definately be back.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the street

I would like to highly recommand Tom for his profesionalism and the way he handles customer care.

I have never received such a great attention and high quality service; for example the follow ups he made to ensure that my stay at Sapa, Ha Long Bay and Cat Ba Island would be perfect.

Details like callind me to wish me happy birthday while in Ha Long Bay was very client oriented.

Thanks to Tom for making my stay in Hanoi so wonderful.

This place was wonderful, Tom the manager was sensational, nothing was too much trouble. He organised tours at an excellent rate , upgraded us to the best rooms, on Ha long Bay cruise and Cad Bah island. Organised travel arrangements and accomodation to Sapa, and sent staff to ensure we got on the train safely. Nothing was too much trouble. He provided his phone number if we needed him 24 hrs per day. He upgraded our room and looked after us like family. This place is in a great location to all things to see. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Breakfast was fantastic . A Huge Thankyou to TOM for his professionalism, humour and sensational service. Highly recommend this hotel.
