“Very classy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Stayed here for one night during a business trip to Haiphong. It is a very nice hotel. the architecture evokes pre-war French colonialist Vietnam in a nice way, understated but with lovely little classy touches that set it apart. The buffet was excellent, the little gift shop is charming, the staff were falling over themselves to be friendly, polite and efficient and the amenities are every thing you expect from a modern hotel. Free wi/fi is a bonus, and the shower although old is a real showstopper - awesome. It is dating a little bit in some ways but everything works and it feels secure and relaxing. When I come back to Haiphong next year I'll be staying here I'm certain. Ticks all the boxes for me - literally cannot find fault.

It was my second time in this hotel and I must say that the Visitors to Hai phong must stay in this hotel due to following reasons....

- It's a beautiful property, specially the reception area and the central courtyard.

- helpful staff, always there to help you. Speak comparatively very good English

- rooms are nice and cosy

- food is excellent

- bar area gives a feeling of being in an English Pub. Great place to have a drink or two

Some tips, those who like Vietnamese cuisine, and do not have qualms for eating food at moderately priced place; do try a restaurant (famous for its chicken) just around the corner (right side when you come out of the hotel). Good food...

We stayed one night. The basic twin room was comfortable, there was a fruit plate and a note from Management. There is a folder with a map of Haiphong and other helpful information. The bathroom is bright and spacious with lots of amenities. The highlight of our stay was the buffet breakfast set in a nice dining room with an attentive staff. The Front desk people were helpful.
The room rate is a bit high for Vietnam but there isn't that much choice in Haiphong.

I STAYED HERE FOR 3 NIGHTS.HOTEL LOCATED WELL AWAY FROM CITY CENTRE SO THE LOCATION IS LESS CROWDED.HOTEL ROOMS ARE SPACIOUS WITH HARDWOOD FLOORING.COLONIAL STYLE CONSTRUCTION ADDING A DIFFERENT CHARM TO THE HOTEL. CORRIDOORS ARE TILED WHICH CAUSING LOUD NOISE WHILE ANYBODY WALKING THROUGH.
STAFF ARE VERY VERY SERVICE ORIENTED WITH EXCELLENT HOSPITALITY.

ClOSE PROXIMITY NOT MUCH INTERESTING THINGS TO SEE.Nearest shopping malls 15 MInutes walk away.
While crossing the roads you must be very careful, even green man traffic wont stop.better to look for somebody crossing the road and follow them which safer. Restaurants around here serving wide variety of food including specialities like snake head.
If you are interested in buying wooden carvings which is very cheap (in airport souvenir shops are selling at high price) then you can visit nearby MINH KHAI market which is 10 minutes walking.Need to bargain for a better deal.

Have stayed in so many Hotels in Hai Phong before, so when i stumbled upon a great offer on TA i decided to give Habour View a try this time.

Service at the hotel is fair, was told upon checkin that my room did not include Free Wifi which did not bother me but there is free Wifi all over when i did a scan with my phone. Firstly in Vietnam Wifi is free in also every establishment and since I could still log in FOC to Wifi being broadcast to my room just makes me think that the hotel was just trying to inconvenience me n the beginning.

Lobby and architecture of the building is old french colonial style making the whole place look grand. The rooms on the other hand i did not like very much, firstly there was a moldy stench when i entered the room. I tried airing the room but Whenever we left and got back to the room the smell was still there. This means probably the carpets needs a good scrubbing. Everything in the room was aged and in my opinion in need of a refurbishment. The pillows in my room were horribly high and stiff. My Wife and I ended up sleeping without them. Bathroom was nice and bright with good selection of amenities. Requested a room with a view but was given a room facing the office building opposite.

Buffet breakfast was simple with an average spread of food but I really appreciate the fact that they gave me a 3pm Late checkout FOC.

I do believe because of the lack of good hotels in Hai Phong is why this hotel is that much appreciated on TA but comparing with other parts of Vietnam, it should be improved.

Room Tip: Request a room with a Good View.

This hotel is a local 4* establishment and it was extremely comfortable and enjoyable. Hotel is housed in an old French style building making it very classy.

Rooms were spacious and clean.

WiFi was jumpy at times in rooms but I don't complain about free stuff.

All staff were courteous at all times and never failed to greet me when our paths crossed.

Breakfast buffet was good, not too much variety but sufficient to give me some variety for my 3 days stay including a hot pho station and an omelette station.

Location wide I can't comment since I didn't get the chance to tour but the hotel is located off the main street, which keeps it away from the incessant honking of Vietnamese traffic.

All in all, it was a good place to stay and would highly recommended for business travelers.
