“really friendly staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

ended up staying here with a german girl i was travelling with when hanoi backpackers along the road was full.

for the same price as a dorm at the backpackers. we got our own room, with an en suite bathroom as well as a fridge and free breakfast. the room was nothing special but decent enough for two nights although quite small.

the staff were so nice and helpful. they booked out taxi to the airport for us. also every time we went out in the rain they insisted on giving us their umbrella! didn't book any tours through them so can't comment on what they were like.

I stayed in Viet Fun just two nights. I checked in so early, but no problem. The location is logical. Staff were assiduous.
I vote in this hotel.

My friend and I stayed for 2 nights at Viet Fun Hotel. We payed $20 for a good sized, clean room, however it was noisy late into the night due to the close proximity of a bar. The staff appeared friendly and helpful. However, we booked a 2 day, 1 night junk cruise to Halong Bay through the hotel, which ended up being a mistake. The staff showed us three cruises at prices ranging from $65 - $95 USD. We decided to splurge on the $95 trip for an extra special experience. The next morning, 5 minutes before the mini bus picked us up for Halong Bay, the hotel staff told us that we had been 'upgraded' and not to tell anyone on the boat. Upon arriving at Halong Bay, we realized that we had, in fact, been downgraded to one of the less expensice trips we had been shown by the hotel staff. We did end up having a good time at Halong Bay, but we spoke to the hotel staff upon our return to Hanoi, asking that my friend and I each be refunded the $20 price difference between the boat we paid for and the one we were placed on. The staff told us that they would not refund our money and that it was not their fault, but the boat company who had placed us on the wrong boat.

We stayed here for four nights before flying to Laos, paying $15 a night for a nice, light, big double room and a simple breakfast. TV, a/c, en suit are standard.

The two guys who run it are very friendly, happy and helpful and speak good English.

It's by no means five star but very clean and location is perfect, down the backpacker alley and close to all sights, bars and restaurants.

We had a lovely stay and would recommend to anyone looking for a budget but nice hotel.

We're staying in Viet Fun along time. Bcause we cannot go anywhere with alot of local people's moving. That's reason we already stayed here a half of month. But with long time, we can see everything in Viet Fun is perfect with their ardour. The hotel has a decent location in the old quarter.
Our room has a nice view that would feel very comfortable. Also restaurant area is a great place to get lunches and dinners.

Room Tip: The room with window, has view

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights and friends came for 1 night. The rooms are very nice and clean, the employees are very friendly. We bargained the price for the rest of our stay at the end of the 1st night. When came the bill, they wanted to make us pay more than agreed 20$ instead of 18$). After 30 min of negociation (they said we misunderstood, that 2$ is nothing for us, we were wrong...) we finally paid 18$.
It is the 1st time we have to bargain at the end of a stay.
To conclude, you can go to this nice hotel but make sure you have the price written (with management signature) before staying.

We paid 24US$ a night for double room, it's good price. Our room on top floor where very nice, clean and has large view. The location was wonderful, near to Hoan Kiem lake, many shops and somewhere. All people who are working very hard there, are helpful and happy all day.
Even they shared meel with us.
